Verschleif // Laurin Döpfner

Mit einer Tischler-Kantenschleifmaschine wird vom Werkstück (Holz, Walnuss, Trafo, Schädel oder analoger Kamera) immer ein halber Millimeter abgeschliffen und fotografiert.

Aus ca 650 Aufnahmen entsteht ein Kurzfilm von Laurin Döpfner, der die innere Struktur von Natur und Technik gegenüberstellt.

With an edge sander, half a millimeter is sanded off each work piece (wood, walnut, transformer, skull or analogue camera) and photographed. About 650 photos are made into a short film, which contrasts the inner structure of nature and technology.

STOPCYCLE by Benjamin Ducroz

STOPCYCLE is a series of 25 small scale sculptures, which as an ensemble create a seamless 25 frame animated loop. the work explores changes of form, and sound using repetition through time. the sculptures shapes are organic and layered in form, much like topographical maps. the forms are descriptions of anatomical regions, as well as being formal experiments in geometry and motion. their shapes are infinitely cycling, beginning anew once they end – they can be interpreted as tangible, shapeshifting clocks.

Unity by Tobias Stretch

“What is absolute unity?
This is the way, In which the study of One
has the power of drawing and converting the Mind
to the contemplation of True Being.”

Film written & directed by Tobias Stretch • Music by Christopher Bono “Unity”.
Performed by the New York Virtuoso Singers • Conducted by Harold Rosenbaum.

Homage To The Mineral Of Cabbage

A stop motion short directed and animated by Stephanie Dudley. Based on the poem “Homage to the Mineral of Cabbage” by Erín Moure, from her book, Little Theatres.

The film Little Theatres is an interpretation of what Little Theatres are. It is an exploration of layers: layers of space, and layers of words, both spoken and written. The exploration begins and ends with a simple cabbage.

Stop motion is the medium here, showcasing a world of miniature, handmade sets and puppets, that are animated one frame at a time. The film’s voiceover is in the poem’s original language, Galician. Its translation is contained within the film. The English words unfold as graphic elements within the scenes, as the poem is being spoken.

His nature is to devour and absorb others. When one day a gargantuan foreign object appears in the skies. Drawn in by mysterious creatures of light, the Ohm tracks them across the planet, changing the known order of matter, time and space.

Directed by Eva Franz & Andy Goralczyk this extraordinary animated short film fuses high-end CGI and photographic images, miniature sets and traditional stop-motion puppet animation.
