James Camerons "Titanic" movie was to some extent fascinating by means of those scenes where the spectator could witness the rising water level inside the foundering ship throughout its authentic duration. Now, something quite similar happens to the "Flooded Home", a video installation by Susanne Kutter. In real-time an empty swimming pool is flooded, in which a complete living room has been set up, including furniture, electric devices, carpets and plants. But the dramatic claustrophobia, which has dominated the epic movie, now gives way to a smooth and constant flow of transformation. While we are looking at this process, the fear of the disaster disappears and the inevitable takes its course in a laconic, yet cheerful way. Likewise, the amazing beauty of the image increases when objects slowly escape from gravity, the colour changes into the monochrome green of the water and in the end a totally new but absurd spatial order has been created.

Film Džejmsa Kamerona “Titanik” bio je do određene mere fascinantan zahvaljujući onim scenama gde je gledalac mogao videti, u autentičnom trajanju, kako raste nivo vode u brodu koji tone. Sada se nešto sasvim slično dešava u “Poplavljenom domu”, video instalaciji Suzane Kuter. U realnom vremenu, puni se jedan prazan bazen za plivanje; u njemu je postavljena kompletno opremljena dnevna soba sa nameštajem, električnim aparatima, tepisima i sobnim biljkama. No, ovde dramatična klaustrofobija koja dominira filmom epskih razmera ustupa mesto glatkom i neprekidnom toku preobražaja. Dok posmatramo ovaj proces, strah od nesreće iščezava, i ono što je neizbežno ide svojim tokom na lakonski, a ipak veseo način. Takođe, začuđujuća lepota prizora povećava se dok predmeti lagano izmiču sili gravitacije, boja se menja u monohromatsku zelenu boju vode, a na kraju se stvara novi ali apsurdan prostorni poredak.
