LENNY

LENNY
by Cyril Amon Schublin
Country: Germany
Year: 2009
Duration: 17'


An adolescent relationship experienced through a webcam lens and
a computer keyboard.

“The use of computers and internet has changed our perception and
the way we relate to reality. Curious about the wide spread use of
webcams, I have discovered the so called vlogs or video blogs. Young
teenagers record themselves in all possible situations and show the
images produced online to an unknown public on Youtube. Inspired
by these real characters, I created the figures Anton and Lenny, who
meet each other in the world of the internet. I decided to abandon
them into both a virtual and an urban reality by forcing them to
confront their webcam screen existence with the real public space,
recorded on classical celluloid film. I asked myself: How would they
communicate and what does it mean to face someone virtually?”
