A long term project,which started on my journeys to the Alps in 1994. Pylod is mainly a semi documentary short film, but also gave the name to an extended project, consisting of photographs, drawings and an installation.

The movie depicts with its intimate filming and expressive sound, a mechanical parallel existence, with a relentless rhythmical willingness. With poetic, repetitive and romantic imagery, it takes the viewer into a mechanical world. The encounter with the machine as a seductive organism is also a meeting with the darker reasoning of the human mind. Associations such as restlessness, longing, loss, impotence and loneliness intrude into the images of a powerful and frozen mountain realm.

Pylod was realized in the period between 1997 and 2000. It received 3 prizes and was shown on 22 short film festivals world wide.
