The sequences of movement and the plots in Roman Signer’s action sculptures can be viewed as sculptures of space and time. The directions of movement in these documents proceed in a markedly contrasting fashion. Hence, the film is called: “Vertical/Horizontal”. This contrast is underscored by the settings: winter/ice/water/summer/clouds/air. A “commentary” to the story is provided with the abstract signs of sign language and, in particular, with music by Möslang/Guhl.
