Flotsam & Jetsam I: Monobloc by ffmpe (Henrik Mauler) shows a metastable cloud of floating chairs. Invisible forces clump the chairs together and pull them apart like jetsam on a shore. The chairs themselves represent a finely tuned mix of famous 20th century design and the Monobloc plastic garden chair as a sign for unassuming mass manufacturing. The camera is bound to chairs floating in the swarm. A weightless, merely visual tree fragment appears from time to time to signify a switch between dynamic chair-cameras. Occasional screams of a group of people underscore an uncanny, disoriented feeling.
