Relaties naar Heelal

Relaties naar Heelal is a short film mapping a journey through the thesaurus of keywords used to catalogue and describe items in the EYE Collection database. The journey is based on the internal relationships between terms used by archivists for indexing records. Instead of using these keywords as labels to be applied after the fact, the itinerary is accompanied by the artists’ own subjective visual interpretations of the words. Relaties naar Heelal takes a structured and minimal poetic approach to the terms, teasing out anomalies, chance encounters, mistranslations and readability.
