KungFU Disco (2016, 1’39”)
Kungfu Disco is a video collage made of found footage and animation. By means of de-structuring and restructuring classic film archive footage, this project interrogates the delicate entanglement between kungfu, disco, and the human body. Besides the interplay of moving images created by different mediums, Kungfu Disco also presents an environment that taps into the unconscious visual experience.
