Still from A. Watch 20 sec excerpt

Dan Lageryd's video A / B shows a seventeen floors passage down a narrow staircase, followed by an ascent up a parallel staircase. The staircases depicted in A / B are isolated spaces, illuminated only by artificial light and with fireproof steel doors on every other landing. An emergency exit empty of personal belongings, the setting for the video does not so much indicate a place as it does a mere form. A form which, at the same time as providing the film's subject, outlines its choreography.

Still from B. Watch 20 sec excerpt

On moving down the stairs, A / B displays the halting movement of two overlapping frames trying to meet each other, constantly reproducing the secluded space of the recording. While the incessant sound of footsteps on concrete keeps wiring back the viewer to the physical urban setting, one is tempted to wonder what kind of space it is that the video actually stages – rather than depicting any specific place, A / B seems to be offering its viewer a document over the ongoing process of producing and reproducing the very space of the recording.

An apartment unfolded. The soundtrack consisting of the sound of an empty flat mixed with the sounds that seep in from outside.

Still from Essingeleden. 5 min, 23 sek. Video collage, 1920 x 1080 or 2560 x 1440. Available in screening version and as a loop.

An afternoon on the motorway, going nowhere. See the sun set over southern Stockholm's industrial area in 10 journeys
made into one - a two hour drive pieced together into a five minute panoramic video collage.
The image is constantly expanding and contracting, changing speed and focal point in an effort to keep time and space together.
The mostly unintelligible dialogue between driver and filmmaker, drowned out by traffic and mixed with the squeaking
of wiper blades, makes a pleasantly cacophonic soundtrack.
Acquired by
the National Public Arts Council (Statens Konstråd) in 2012.

Still from Eugenia. 3 min, 51 sek. Video collage, 10 x 768 x 576 or 3537 x 1261. Loopable.

The same car journey repeated ten times over a period of six months, each time with the camera pointed in a different direction.
The panoramic reconstruction leaves the surroundings disjointed, both in time and space and the static nature of the architecture
is no longer reliable.
The noise of traffic and the engine multiplied by ten makes a roaring soundtrack.

Available in various formats, best shown using 10 video projectors.
This film is distributed by Filmform.

Still from This Land is Your Land. 1 min, 58 sek. Video collage, 6 x 768 x 576 or 2309 x 768. Loopable.
 
Documenting the view from a hotelroom on the 13th floor overlooking Shanghai, the film concurrently presents six different views, filmed at
six consecutive nights, among them New Years Eve. The accompanying sound is a mix of racket from the street and noise from within the room
- sirenes, car horns and fireworks blended together with international television news on economy and a childrens choir singing
”This Land Is Your Land” by Woody Guthrie.

Available in various formats, best shown using 6 video projectors.
This film is distributed by Filmform.

Still from Kulturhuset 2008 01 15 13:00-17:30. 5 min / 1 min. Video collage, 25 x 768 x 576 or 2510 x 1442. Loopable.

Filmed from twenty-five different positions on different levels inside Kulturhusets wide glass facade,
the movie reconstructs an afternoon on Sergels Torg - from daylight to dusk - in just a few minutes.
Given the width of the image and the time it spans, this short film can be said to contract time and expand space...
The soundtrack is comprised of the aggregated sound of the building and its visitors.

Available in various formats, best shown using 25 video projectors.
