Offered is a piece from the project: 29 Palms, CA 

29 PALMS, CA is a feature film / art piece that explores and chronicles the dreams and fantasies of a group of individuals who live in a trailer community in the Californian desert.

The world depicted in the film is inspired by the photographs of German artist Stefanie Schneider in that it combines the notions of reality and fantasy and explores the resonance of both within a desert landscape and a transient culture. The characters portrait in the film, (an actress, a singer, a DJ, a motel owner and his wife, a US army soldier, a mystic a princess, a recluse, a movie ticket seller, two hitchhikers, a doctor, and so on), are to be played by both actors and non-actors. The story is constructed through the interpretation of real life communications (i.e. phone calls, emails, conversations) that have taken place as the individuals depicted in the story try to make sense of events that have occurred in real life. In this sense the story is, in part, a biography and social commentary, and the characters are the exaggerated alter egos of the individuals who play them.


Life Inside Pieces of Graffiti  
by Marc Foster


Late afternoon, Hollywood Hills, August 14, 1996 – a birthday party. Heated Pool.  Blue lights surrounding it. It becomes night. It’s like a fancy hotel. People conversing, using language. Everyone hungry for a way of being with everyone else - the mournful, solitary howl of Hollywood stereo- types. It’s here that Marc meets Stefanie aka “Steffi”. We are seated across from each other at a table. She is wearing a very bright dress and speaking loudly, like someone who pulls a knife from their mouth that smells of roses. I was curious. We end up talking about the desert - how we both like to drive past the palm trees, waiting for the sun to come up.  We connect, we become friends, we remain friends. We both believe in foot kicking. Foot kicking harder. Foot kicking through doors. Dramas always dissolve. Thoughts disappear. Life eventually ends. Stefanie’s pictures though, her creative being, will stay behind - as a reminder of what it feels like to peer out different windows and into the intricate landscapes of a great artist. 

One meets so many characters in her pictures, many resemble images of rock groups, road signs or trade-marks. It’s as if these character’s performances aren't inside pieces of Graffiti.  All of her endings are unstable, they spill over, they leak.  They change, chameleon like, in self-protection as we look at them. She is desert. Desert is quiet even though everything is resounding. There is no light except for the sun. She takes a picture, she is the picture... she looks at it and she is the star.  She is the light, she is the noise.  She is a true artist having to get from place to place through pure magic. An artist who exists through fragmented chunks of various stories.  Her stage is never divided:  Bottle crashing. Glass enactments of themselves but rather they exist as life breaking. Cursing. Screaming. Laughing. Head smashing. Crying. Hyperventilating. Long phone messages. Endless e-mails. Forgiving. Loving. Existing as a true friend. Her art is never divided.

Stefanie Schneider
Stefanie Schneider

United States Minor Outlying Islands

Stefanie Schneider lives and works in the High Desert of California. Stefanie Schneider's scintillating situations take place in the American West. Situated on the verge of an elusive super-reality, her photographic sequences provide the ambience for loosely woven story lines and a cast of phantasmic characters. Schneider works with chemical mutations of expired Polaroid film stock. Chemical explosions of color spreading across the surfaces undermine the photograph's commitment to reality and induce her characters into trance-like dream-scapes. Like flickering sequences of old road movies Schneider's images seem to evaporate before conclusions can be made - their ephemeral reality manifesting in subtle gestures and mysterious motives. Schneider's images refuse to succumb to reality, they keep alive the confusions of dream, desire, fact, and fiction. She is currently working on the 29 PALMS, CA. 29 PALMS, CA is a feature film / art piece that explores and chronicles the dreams and fantasies of a group of individuals who live in a trailer community in the Californian desert. A defining feature of the film is the use of still images and the use of voice over. Characters talk to us / themselves / you about their ambitions, memories, hopes, fears and dreams. The film is to be shot using a mix of super 8 and 16mm film stock and Polaroid images. Certain computer-generated effects will also be used to enhance the films surreal mood and to animate its dark humor. Radha Mitchell, Marc Forster, Udo Kier, Max Sharam among others are participating in the project. Stefanie Schneider received her MFA in Communication Design at the Folkwang Schule Essen, Germany. Her work has been shown at the Museum for Photography, Braunschweig, Museum für Kommunikation, Berlin, the Institut für Neue Medien, Frankfurt, the Nassauischer Kunstverein, Wiesbaden, Kunstverein Bielefeld, Museum für Moderne Kunst Passau, Les Rencontres d'Arles.
