The Dissonance of Memory (chapter IV)
The montage film The Dissonance of Memory (Chapter IV) takes its point of departure in the multilayered narratives surrounding the areas of Gellerup and Toveshøj outside Aarhus in Denmark. Tracing the waves of change, progress and re-design of the area – from the never realized original plans till todays Helhedsplan (grand masterplan) – through a re-contextualisation of material from the local archive, current political issues and discriptions of recently digitized private images that are not yet available to the public. Visually the film mainly consists of scanned images from the citizen driven magazine Skræppebladet between 1970-2010. The soundtrack is composed of field recordings from the area, processed into an abstract soundscape.
