sadescription Musee Hofstadt
2mn31   color   stereo   2004   USA
by Nika Offenbac & Devan Simunovich
"Musee Hofstadt" is an exploration of complex behaviors within biological systems, both real and simulated. Based on the Typogenetic theories of Douglas Hofstadter, the performance and its documentation are constructed around the string manipulation rules he developed to model the processes of genetic replication. Repetitive sets of deterministic actions are codified with Butoh style movements, incorporating actions in sets of 4 and 16. The characters positions directly correlate to the number of string terms and total instructions in Hofstadter’s system. This rule base system is also implemented programmatically in the postproduction process. Typogenetic algorithms were scripted in Perl and used to drive video processing in Jitter and to build generative 3D geometry in Maya.

sadescription Flux
11mn   color   stereo   2005   Brazil
by Kika Nicolela & Suzy Okamoto
A body defies exterior; wanders through the path from the imoptency to the vital force. A red tissue wraps it and cuts it from the rest of the world. The body gradually fuses with the elements around it- a clay building, a valley, a river - striving to balance the inner and outer world.

sadescription Elaine Drive
6mn   color   stereo   2004   USA
by Robbie Land
"Elaine Drive" is an abstract exercise, which explores my anxiety involving the concept of infinity. This notion has haunted me since early child-hood growing up on "Elaine Drive" and it’s surrounding neighborhood. The impression developped in this environment help form my perceptions of this existential predicament. The images of "Elaine Drive" are organized to flit much like a stream of conscious motion in order to summon the experiences felt when dealing with this boggled idea of infinity.
