Red Spot by Huang Ruei-Feng

“Red Spot” von Huang Ruei-Feng gewann bereits mehrmalig internationale Preise. Leider wurde die Ausstrahlung des Films auf dem Beijing International Film Festival kurz vor Beginn von den chinesischen Behörden verboten. Die beeindruckende digitale Animationsarbeit des taiwanischen Künstlers stellt die grausamen Morde an Robben in Kanada dar.

Based on a true story.

“Every year, hundreds of thousands of seals are stunned by hunters. The hunter drags the seal’s body which is fully covered with blood, all along to the boat where the bloodstain extends. For the seal, it is a death path of agony and resistance. For me, this is a symbol showing that the route to animal conservation is full of obstacles and hardships.”

Directed & animated by Huang Ruei-Feng.

I Can’ See Your Angel Face

Diese handgefertigte Animation der Künstlerin Renfang Xu erzählt eine Geschichte über das Erwachsenwerden, über Selbsterkenntnis, Entwicklung und Liebe.

“This is a story about growing, finding, self-evolution and love. The animation was made by hand-crafted and generative graphic, show the subconscious concept behind geometric abstractions. With the context changing, life become nomalization and efficency, the relationship between human and screen is geting intimate. Every one has own coordinate and motion path. The randomess and bugs of code are the metaphor of anxiety and nervousness.”

What Is Life? Is Death Real?

Was ist eigentlich der Unterschied zwischen Leben und Tod? Auf den ersten Blick wirkt das wie eine ziemlich dumme Frage. Aber wenn man versucht eine klare Definitionen zu finden, wird es plötzlich sehr verwirrend. Die Wissenschaft ist sich bis heute nicht einig.

Und Moment – wenn wir nicht ganz sicher sind was “Leben” bedeutet… was bedeutet dann “Tod”?

Kurzgesagt – a team of designers, journalists and musicians who want to make science look beautiful. Because it is beautiful.

So what is the difference between you and a rock? This seems like an easy, even stupid question. But even the smartest people on earth have no idea where to draw the line between living and dead things. Which leads to mind-blowing implications.

What is life after all? And is death really a thing?
