Splice Lines (2012) consists of two artworks, an image montage and a short film, each constructed from the isolated splice lines in Kurt Kren’s 1964 film 6-64 Mama and Papa. The cuts in Kurt Kren’s performance documentation enhance the violent actions performed by Otto Mühl. By removing the splice lines from their original context, the chaotic nature hidden within Kren’s precise editing system is instantly revealed by both image and film.
