Rubbernecking, (Paolo Pennuti in collaboration with Mirko Fabbri), 2010. 11:33. Video.
Camera: Sony pd170
Rubbernecking is an ironic combination of visual and audio snippets, recorded in a documentary style. According to the German biologist Jacob Von Uexkull, every creature lives only in its own Umwelt (its subjective world), which is like a single bubble of soap, pulled apart from the others. A Landscape can be imagined as a collection of individual worlds, similar to notes on a musical score; every note is relevant in itself and at the same time it is in relation to the others. Rubbernecking depicts a landscape-milieu ruled by forms of control and by the lack of individual possibilities to escape from the dynamics of a society which doesn’t consider people and animals as individuals as such, but rather as elements of the system.
