Ghost in the Train, 2022
3:16 min, HD video, 9:16, sound
A short scene shot by chance on a half-empty night train, where an automatic sensor-operated door has lost its mind or disembodied creatures are constantly entering and exiting the carriage. Capturing guests from the afterlife in a visual image was one of the popular genres of early photography in the late 19th century, accompanying spiritualist séances. The automatic door is by design inconspicuous, but when out of order it becomes a Deus ex machina, a MacGuffin, the engine of a mystery plot.

Four Seven Round-the-Clock, 2022
2:56 min, HD video, 16:9, sound
A short scene shot by chance at a moment when the clock at home is desperately trying to fulfill its usual purpose, but has no strength to do so.
