sadescription Memento Mori
11mn   b/w   sil   2006   Greece
by Nikos Veliotis
"Memento Mori" completes a trilogy of short videos (the two previous being imago & obJet). "Memento Mori"’s material consists entirely of post-mortem photographs of children found on the internet. Post – mortem photography was a common practice, especially with children, in both Europe and America during the 19th and early 20th century. It is also referred to as "memento mori" photography. The video reflects the initial shock and grief experienced when confronted with one’s wounded inner child, one’s dark, frozen layers of pain and loss. It proceeds formally through the use of a simple kind of animation: multiple layers of still images in a varying speed pendulum motion. The animation generates a perpetual emergence figures. The video is silent; the environmental soundtrack of each specific screening is defined as the 'audio' of "Memento Mori.

sadescription Magic Mountain
3mn35   color   stereo   2005   USA
by Sandra Powers
My films incorporate early film and painterly aesthetics, resulting in surrealistic imagery that is derived from my dreams and imagination. They exist in a theatre setting that is starkly visual, revealing a poetic and sometimes macabre world. I hand - crank my camera and hand - splice my films. Each film has my fingerprints all over it. To express my cinematic ideas further, I paint and optically print the film. Once the film’s structure is all the set, I reprocess the film using a variety of digital compositing and effects software. My artistic choices are intuitive, personnal and decisive. In both my films, "Magic Mountain" & "Las Hijas De Endor", audio is used to portray emotion...

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.

sadescription Brain Damaged
21mn21   color   stereo   2005   Argentina
by Gabriel Otero
The sound draws the letter, that protects the word in the language. The dialogue appeases the violence and fertilizes the land. The city erects its civilization againts the dersert. It exhibits without modesty its power : houses, schools hospitals, libraries. The spatial carrer, the nuclear medicine and was it digital. The man and its reason codify and they build : the passion, the expansion, the ambition, the concentration, the urbanization, the contamination, the tension, the friction, the explosion,... the word conflagration...
