airborne for 8 minutes is a short experimental film which developed out of the shooting of the film Deserts and Backbones. It was shot as a cooperation of the Australian artist Heather Winter and Alexandra Reill, Heather Winter mostly performing.

Later on, the original material was treated by Alexandra Reill and the theme of reading life between the lines, with all its pleasure and suffering - an ever reappearing theme in the work of Alexandra Reill - emerged.

Heather Winter is a fine artist and photographer who has worked for a number of years around the idea of landscape. She lived for 15 months with the Ngarinyin people of the Kimberley region of Western Australia, an experience which had a profound influence on her ideas and her work. (1) Heather Winter's [recent] work is informed by cross cultural encounters of disparate worlds from Ngarinyin Aboriginal landscapes to the bombed devastation of Belgrade and New York City (2001) and reflection of her Swiss father's flight from Iran as a refugee in the 40s.

Alexandra Reill, born in Vienna, is a media artist; she invests her work with sociocultural themes, examining the societal and sociological repercussions of digitalization and the information age for human identities. Her digital visual worlds and live compositions are characterized by rhythmic dramaturgies and the conscious employment of abstract formal language.
