1972 | Koblenz · Germany
Thorsten Fleisch made his first film experiments with his dad’s Super 8 camera when still in school. Later he studied experimental film with Prof. Peter Kubelka at the Städelschule in Frankfurt.
Thorsten Fleisch works with digital and analogue film. With materials such as the body, crystals, fire and electricity, he worked directly on 16 mm film strips. Crystals are grown on the film and 30,000 volts burn through photo paper. The results are poetic and abstract visual systems with references to catharsis, cosmos and the universe.
He created commissioned work for Gaspar Noé and Basement Jaxx among others.
His films received several awards and were shown at festivals worldwide. He is now working on his first video game called 'Teslapunk'.
Lives in Berlin, Germany.
