NIERIKA / Antoine Danis / 2016 / France / 7:41

Experimental

For the gray days of winter, I was going.

The head in the wind, the eye watching.

From flowers to leaves, and from domes in mature forest.

The sounds and images met.

MONOTONE RED-COLOURED GNOME / Vera Sebert / 2016 / Germany / 7:10

Experimental

Text fragments and moving lights appear, shaped like abstracted aquariums, windows and screens, overlaying each other and disappearing into a black and endless room. Inside a sphere that neither consists of air nor water, our view is banished by the glowing composition and entraped into an absent-minded and hypnotised stare. The strange sound of fish-voices, artificial colors and grainy footage stimulate the senses and generate their own narration that manages without story.

ONE / Juha van Ingen / 2015 / Finland / 7:39

Experimental

The starting point for ONE is a video taken with a mobile phone. The camera hasn’t been able to capture the original view and the resulting video contains only mystical glitch. What causes the glitch? What is the moment or subject, which was originally attempted to be documented? Is there a huge planet or a tiny cell in the video? PErhaps it is something else – a human or even god? The soundscape of ONE is homage to big questions, a mash-up of 60’s sci-fi cinema soundtracks.
