On October 31 2015 the first short 7 hour and 20 minute trailer was filmed at Hovs Hallar in the south of Sweden. This is the same location Ingmar Bergman used for the iconic scene where Antonius Block challenges the grim reaper to a game of chess in the Seventh Seal from 1957.
The trailer was filmed in one single take for 7 hours and 20 minutes with no cuts and the Swedish performers Stina Pehrsdotter and Niclas Hallberg interpreted the chess game from the film as a Bergman-esque comment on the absurdity and randomness of existence in the scenes; life/quest/power /death/escape/rest/love.
The soundtrack is composed by Marsen Jules/Martin Juhls (marsenjules.de)’
Ambiancé is a 720 hour/30 day long film that is set to premiere on December 31 2020. This will be the artist Anders Weberg’s good bye to the moving medium as a way of expression for the last 25 years and no more films will be made after that. C’est fini.
The final film will be screened once syncronised on all the continents and then deleted. Ambiancé is 720 hours long (30 days) and will be shown in its full length on a single occasion syncronised in all the continents of the world and then destroyed.
Ambiancé will be the longest film made that doesn’t exist.
Up until 2020 three teasers/trailers will be publiced.
The first 72 minute teaser was released in 2014, the first short trailer in 2016 and then the longer 72 hour trailer will be released in 2018.
Absent VIII  a homage to Maya Deren
Nothingness / Ten
Anders Weberg (b.1968)
Anders is an artist working in video, sound, new media and installations and he is primarily concerned with identity. The human body lies at the root of projects that formally and conceptually chart identity and its construction as a preamble to broaching matters of violence, genders, memory, loss or ideology in which personal experiences co-exists with references to popular culture, the media and consumerism. Specializing in digital technologies, he aims to mix genres and ways of expression to explore the potential of audio visual media. He coined the term Peer-to-peer art or (p2p art) in 2006. Art made for – and only available on – the peer to peer networks. The original artwork is first shared by the artist until one other user has downloaded it. After that the artwork will be available for as long as other users share it. The original file and all the material used to create it are deleted by the artist. ”There’s no original”. Six films with a duration between 45 minutes and 9 hours have been uploaded on the file sharing networks in one copy and their original have been deleted. P2P Art – The aesthetics of ephemerality.
