Vororte der Körper is a consistent animation, which casts the film medium back on its origin, the image. Beginning with divers on an ocean platform, the viewer plunges simultaneously through pictorial spaces in pictorial worlds, whose associative inner logic collides with the routines of conventional narration.
Topics such as encountering, separating, the dissolution of boundaries and the radius of what can be experienced physically are studied for their repercussions in the semiotic echo chamber, and the possible vocabulary of earlier works' mental stage area is greatly expanded.
