Peripetics by Zeitguised

‘Peripetics or The installation of an irreversible axis on a dynamic timeline’

Zeitguised made a piece in six acts for the opening exhibition at the Zirkel Gallery. It entails six imaginations of disoriented systems that take a catastrophic turn, including the evolution of educational plant-body-machine models and liquid building materials.

Length: 5000F / 3min 20s // Sound Design: Zeitguised with Michael Fakesch.

Glyph & Δ Aurigæ by Depart

Depart: The Dark Matter Of Fact // Leonhard Lass & Gregor Ladenhauf.


Glyph is a projection sculpture with references to ritual monuments such as obelisks or stelas. It deals with cyclic change and constantly regenerates itself. An alphabet based on fundamental geometric shapes (rectangle, circle and triangle) acts as a communication device as well as a pure aesthetic element. All texts displayed are permanently evolving and restructured based on linguistic rules. The installation runs in realtime – the video shows a random segment recorded at schmiede 2011.

Δ Aurigæ

Delta Aurigae is an installation which deals with the periodic coalescence of opposite aggregate states, based on and structured by the rhythm of a double star system like the constellation Auriga.

A world populated by meanders and monoliths, meteors and menhirs that draws inspiration from ancient astrology which was using rock formations and natural objects to decipher the universe and measure it’s cycles. Delta Aurigae is a hybrid between installation and performance, a stage with a life of its own. In idle mode it shows a slow and majestic flow like a glacier, where fringes blur and relations vanish.

Oil & Water by Sam Spreckley

Single screen edit of a two screen video installation, created as part of the Cooper Summer Residency for Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art.. Dundee, Scotland…

oil and water video installation. Digital video, oil in water.

“This work was a product of life pressures and an interest in science and experimentation, specifically biology and cell structures. Oil and water will never mix and it is this basic concept that has driven the production of this video work. I wanted to create a situation where the two try and come together, despite the obvious outcome. The physicality of oil and water will never allow this union and thus causes an interesting to and fro within the video frame. The images have been mirrored and a combination of machine,electronic and organic sound create an almost abstract machine like structure, technology and nature come together in an exploration of force and pressure.”

Sync by Max Hattler

November 2011: In celebration of two imminent honours from the Visual Music Award and the Premio Simona Gesmundo, Sync is finally making its Vimeo debut!

Sync “is based on the idea that there is an underlying unchanging synchronisation at the centre of everything; a sync that was decided at the very beginning of time. Everything follows from it, everything is ruled by it: all time, all physics, all life. And all animation.” (Max Hattler, 2011, ‘Sync: Circular Adventures in Animation’ in Virginie Selavy (ed.) The End: An Electric Sheep Anthology)
