Johannes Langkamp is a new media artist based in Rotterdam. He carries out ongoing, playful research into video as a medium. Inspired by the everyday, he makes many short fragments of video using simple means, giving them a raw and sketchy style. The film 158.12 is a staged situation, which explores the mechanics of composition. A twirling lamp moves around a flat image (display) and seems to merge with its running content. The film is one of many videosketches made in 2012. The titles are generated by the date of origination of each work; the 06.06.2012 was the 158th day of 2012.
