MY DIVINE WET DREAM

Sarah Fichtinger, 2021, [country], 7 minutes

vs (or ‘virtual spiral’) explores the dynamics between time and body through hypnotic and spiralling images of data centres and physical bodies of our omnipresent data cloud.

KIKERIKI

Lea Gander , 2021, [country], 3 minutes

My Mum is a superwoman! She lost my dad – the love of her life – in an accident. Now she is doing all the work at our organic farm alone with my brother. I really appreciate their work and love for it, but I wish they could take more days off and rest. I decided to bring our farm to live, so that the work is doing itself!

LEBENSZEICHEN

Ingrid Gaier, 2021, [country], 5 minutes

AUF DEM GRUND DES WÄSCHEKORBES

Adele Razkövi, 2021, [country], 7 minutes

Animation, painting, music, sculpture, literature, and dance – utterly different disciplines flow together and merge into a polyphonic ode to an ordinary everyday object.

AMAZON WOMAN

Anna Vasof, 2021, [country], 4 minutes

A celebration of the head’s universality that questions its primacy at the same time. In 24 ten-second shots, the Amazon Woman demonstrates everything a head can do.

SEEDS HOLZBUCH STUDIE II

Iby-Jolande Varga, 2021, [country], 2 minutes

Sphere Loop, Tetrahedron Loop and Cube Loop – all of which are animated with 24 phases – send out their Circle Seeds, Triangle Seeds, and Square Seeds in order to morph into each other.

METANOIA

Astrid Rothaug, 2021, [country], 9 minutes

FROZEN JUMPER

Tina Frank, 2020, [country], 7 minutes

Algorithmically generated digital patterns mutate and overlap, like a never-ending flow of images steadily “contaminated” by abnormalities. In contrast to the pattern recognition of data-processing systems, this pattern recognition remains without a simple, exhaustible sense.

WE ARE ALREADY HISTORY, AND WE DON'T KNOW IT

Dagmar Schürrer, 2021, [country], 6 minutes

The film illustrates the nature and function of the brain and of technology through animated imagery of brains, idealised representations of humans, superimposed abstract patterns reminiscent of the human cell and neuron structures as well as electronic wiring.

FOISCHES VIECH

Ulrike Swoboda-Ostermann, 2021, [country], 3 minutes

A music video to Attwenger’s song foisches viech, accompanied by distorted visuals and found footage of animals.
