In cooperation with blind people the artist duo Muzak & Riha realized a touch-film.
Over 100 images were modeled solemnly by blind participants.
In order for them to work autonomously, self-determined and reflexive within their image-production, Muzak & Riha developed a special procedure of creating printing blocks.
The participants modeled their images associatively to a priorly edited film soundscape. Later on those images were animated at the moments in time for which they were made for.
The story told is of a group of displaced people on the run. They can´t see for they have to hide.
The Film forms the center-piece of the installation. Around this inverted cinematic apparatus the key film-images are presented and can be felt and touched.
Muzak & Riha work participative. In a lively process between artists, interested public and audience, they attempt to find new strategies, forms and means in production, expression and presentation of contemporary art.
