About this video, Gail Langstroth writes:
Places and landscapes speak. They imprint an image, leave a question, a wordless gesture or desire in our limbs. When I first approached the grounds of Peter Eisenman’s City of Culture, Santiago de Compostela, Spain, I knew that I wanted to converse with the spaces between these buildings. I wanted to penetrate the mystery of passageway and corridor, enter the stone reach of vertical and horizontal. I wanted to walk here, feel the slanting walls speak.
Through film and movement, challenged by wind, sun, and sky, I am here.
Later editing, piecing, shifting, adding a tonal background, layering, folding the colors and textures of collage:
Tor means Door in German. Rot means Red.
