Conductor

video, b/w, 4:3, stereo, BE, 2004, 02:22

A lightning conductor appears as a musical conductor for the cloud cover. At the core of an increasingly threatening blaze of fire and a whistling wind, a minuscule light has final call, until the violence of heaven discharges abruptly and the lightning conductor throws it all off-screen.

This video was made in the framework of Title Safe II, a project by Walter Verdin in which he invites artists to make a short video with 125bpm as a rhythmic rule.
