SCREAM
1:46, 2009, single channel or installation, color

Homage to Edvard Munch's painting Scream.
"Fifty people are expressing a range of emotions and are becoming one face, resembling a day, a week, or a lifetime. Scream is about "the pain of being alive", about perpetual wound of our existence. But the pain is overcome by connection with others.

"Natasa Prosenc's video Scream explores the intensity of the interstitial moment between pre-personal affect and personal emotion. This interstitial intensity is visualized with the series of brief close-ups of faces -- male and female -- moving along as they emote through the states of just "being there" to laughter and crying, culminating in one final scream. The warm coloration of images accentuates the sur-faces and luminosity of the faces, unifying them in a rhythmic flow. It is this rhythmic pulsation of displayed emotion that distills into affect as an expression of raw sensation -- a scream. Prosenc's video Scream therefore is itself an intensified expressive sur-face, generating the interstitial force of the organic, undisciplined affect."
