(2007) Domestic Safari is an experimental movie by me and video artist Anders Weberg.
What if we started to see the material worlds of domestic settings as wild places? Is there a potential for the exotic and uncanny in the inconspicuously mundane? Domestic Safari is a journey through three different homes in three different European countries.
The film and it’s soundtrack is based entirely on manipulated recordings from the three places in Finland, Italy and Sweden.
This audiovisual excursion aims to call forth imaginaries and a profane illumination that disorient and estrange the materialities of everyday reality.
