Layers (2012-2014)

A supposed conversation takes place in between some actors on stage. Statements on speculation by authors from the Middle Ages to Present join to a formless dialog. The original text fragments outline different attitudes and disciplines. The film Layers consists of several layers of speech and commentary and a form of argumentation to which a technique called layering is a conceptual reference. Known as a manipulation technique in high-frequency trading, layering is an expression for a brokerage firm that makes and then cancels orders they never intended to carry out.
