ANDERS WEBERG & ROBERT WILLIM (SE): DOMESTIC SAFARI [10:32 min, 2007]

What if we started to see the material worlds of domestic setting as wild places? Is there a potential for the exotic and uncanny in the inconspicuously mundane? Domestic Safari is a journey through three different homes in three different European countries. Both the film and the soundtrack are based entirely on manipulated recordings from the three places in Finland, Italy and Sweden. This audiovisual excursion aims to call forth fantasies and the profane illumination that disorient and estrange the materialities of everyday reality.
