On February 20th, Birgit created a one-night cinema to screen, a looped and altered version of an NOAA video that condenses satellite imagery from the 2008 hurricane season, combining it with various soundtracks (of music both commissioned and found). Presented with video introductions by Hollis Witherspoon impersonating Werner Herzog, Birgit’s project has a peculiar blend of romanticism and irony.
