UHD Video collages made from dia-slides.

Variable duration

My grandfather left behind moving boxes with diapositives. Studying his photographs evoked visions of bodies and environments beeing dissolved and displaced, leaving the picture frame.

The title refers to Dia from Greek; through, between, apart, over. I can see my relatives in the photogaphs but their actual essence is beyond sight. They rest between two layers - the captured analog photo and the recreated digital video collage. The projector's light evoke memories and belongings left behind.
