Untangling Noises of Matter |  installation | Louis Braddock Clarke | Het Diepe

The short film ‘Untangling Noises of Matter’ deals with an ancient perspective onto the transduction of metallic powders found deep inside the Earth.

jianjian | film installation | LiChun Tseng | Ketelhuis

jianjian consists of three looped 16mm film projections of different durations, moving independently of each other. Each loop is a film strip with image and optical sound; therefore, in practice a different combination of image and sound is created at any given moment. Different elements are brought together, letting them communicate in an ever-changing balance. Formless objects are captured to create a visual experience, which gives a concentrated experience of timelessness and spacelessness in the moment. The images are captured as reflections on movement, awareness, observation, being and transformation. Image by Lichun Tseng, sound by Robert Kroos. Supported by DKC Rotterdam. Read more >
