ASPHALTO / ROUTEMASTER – De Luxe DVD +Book is an attempt to create a ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’ — a total work of art — which discusses issues related to automobile culture, speed, male and female identity through graphic design, photography, street poetry and experimental filmmaking.

It is not only an attempt to achieve a synthesis between different contextual issues and means of expression, but also an attempt to find technical solutions that would revitalise the formative tradition in experimental design and film.

The films on this DVD are assaultive and physical, yet at the same time surprisingly sensual.
