> I DEEPLY REGRET, 2008, 2 min
The video i deeply regret is about a failed chance of revenge and satisfaction. My video shows the attempt to liberate oneself from the victim´s role by a fantasy of self-empowerment. In other words: After a long, long time someone fights back, while humming the theme song from Rocky.
> THE SHORTEST DAY, 3 min
the shortest day shows the transformation of stripes to winterly branches, covered with snow. Through an visual distortion the tree appears to breath. The calm images have an acoustic counterpart, agitated and intense, handling the restlessness under the surface of peace.
> TULIPA, 2007, 3 min
video tulipa concentrates on the formal interplay of color and sound. For this, Goldt once again uses a digital flower picture as the starting point for her cinematic conversation. The picture is disaggregated into its color components and then transferred to an abstract stripe pattern. Thus, in tulipa, too, not much remains of the romantic genre of the flower picture other than the title and the electronically scanned color values of the original picture. Instead, the color dynamics of the picture are released from the flower motif and gain powerful intrinsic value through the consistent process of abstraction. The dynamic interplay of the color values and the spatial potential of the colors are thus revealed increasingly over the course of the color changes in the film.
