The story of Oscar, a dog with supernatural powers, and of his master Werner Hirsch, as told by a television crew.
The SPELL project was conceived as a hybrid composition, reflecting the multi-faceted nature of the term from which it takes its title. Spell can refer to an enchantment, a magic charm, but also to a moment, a lapse of time (what meteorology calls a wave) as well as giving the letters of a word in order. The common denominator to all the Spell projects is duality, the double, understood as sharing in a unitary economy. The combination of elements in Spell tends to produce cryptic and solemn events whose manifestation is uncertain or at least dubious. The project is composed of two short films, two audiovisual installations, and a concert/performance.
