sadescription Roppongi Blues
2mn30   color   stereo   2005   Netherlands
by Marina Chernikova
A nocturnal tour around Mori Tower in Tokyo. The impressive constructions of the day dissolve in the lights of the night. A garden of glass and steel turns into a garden of lights and reflections. Trip to the “other side” of the lights. The visual structure allows the viewer to see images as if he was looking through a moving kaleidoscopical crystal glass.

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 Consenting Adults
3mn30   color   sil   2004   USA
by Neil Needleman
If my older relatives had known I would butcher their 8mm home movies like this, they would never have given them to me. But they did, and I couldn’t resist. The Antimatter Underground Film festival calls this work... "a looping dance of desire and disapproval".

sadescription Totalité Remix
6mn49   color & b/w   stereo   2005   France
by Johanna Vaude
"Totalité remix" has been shot one image after another, based on already existing images, paintings, photos : Vésale’s “the écorchés”, drawings by Agipa de Nettesheim and Leonardo da Vinci, photos by Muybridge, Marey, Londe, architectural plans... These still images are knocked together to give the movement, rhythm and echo necessary to refer to these times where Man has tried to find through research, science, philosophy and art the concept and sentiment of Totality. The editing image by image allows us to explain the connections that link each image, their contents and their symbols. Like a synthesis, through the prism of Totality, the film shows all these questions and researches about Man and his world.

sadescription Cellular Activity : Bechet Vibrato Fragments
16mn   color   sil   2005   USA
by Neil Needleman
Jazz great Sidney Bechet’s deep, wide, passionate vibrato (one of my favorite sounds in the world) inspired me to set my camera swooping, swishing, and dancing over a wide range of surfaces, textures, and scenes. This frenetic camera movement is editing together via a strategy that I call Cellular Activity -a repeated, growing, and transforming pattern of very short shots (or cells). The result is a rhythmically intense and vibrant feast for your optic nerves.

sadescription (D-TOUR)3
5mn30   color   sil   2006   France
by Sylvain Legrand
Braiding of a video shots in mini-DV and re-arranged numerically in the aim of perceiving unsuspected spatial and temporal motifs. "D-Tour ô cube" is seeking to build, from the original film many times retouched, new architectures, to explore the magic of new geometries, to melt during the projection in the eye's spirit. "(D-TOUR)3" extends the previous research, by using a "magic candle", tries to crystallize asymetries of outlines and colors, to transform them, to metamorphize them. Development of a variant of "anorthoscopie", "(D-TOUR)3" oscillates between synthesis of movement and movement of synthesis.

sadescription Video
1mn06   color   stereo   2004   United Kingdom
by Alison Ballard
A (very) short experimental animation inspired by early 'absolute' films. Abstract and intangible with a low-fi approach to a hi-tech medium, "Video" focuses on the relationship between image and sound, each influencing the creation and development of the other.
