Streaming Festival 4th edition Highlighted artists

In the train by Elton EerkensA post modern look at the daily life.
Two men in a train are having a conversation about seclusion, illness and women.
InharmoniCity by Selfish and USO ProjectThere are places where consciousness and matter coexist. Perhaps they share the same origin.
We learn that collective consciousness is shared among human beings, dynamically redistributing itself via unknown processes.
It permeates objects themselves and contributes to reality in its entirety.
We can perceive only a small part due to our biological nature and our tools for scientific research.

Mechanical Figures June Bugs by Helena BulajaMechanical Figures is a collection of short films inspired by the scientist Nikola Tesla - a journey through the creative process from idea to ....
The project first of all questions and reinvestigates the film as a form of art which is today more and more consumed through handheld and mobile devices, as well as the Internet, which raises a question what kind of film can truly entertain and content a contemporary consumer.
Sweet by Matthieu CherubiniThe idea of this work was to do a video without any pre-ideas/stories/guidelines/..., the only “data” allowed was the song Sweet composed by Alessandro Ratoci. Whole visual part appeared instinctively by listening to that song, in order to create an osmosis and a strong relation between sound and images.
The dancer’s cut by Enrique PiñuelA good dancer can dance to the beat of any sort of music. The film offers us a visual and sound based choreography, reusing pictures taken from different sources (Classics Movies Vs. Spanish Folklore) put together to the beat of a session mixed Ninotchka Art Project.

...Niland 1 by Leneweit and Rodriguez...niland 1 is built on the separating line of both water and air, the center of which is the man in adaptation by a rise of the sea level.
...niland 1 is based on a concept. Niland (no land) is an idea conceived by gruppefisch representing a futuristic of how life adapts under the surface of the water.
The artwork is based on climate change and especially the rise in sea levels. Humans change with nature and are in a constant process of micro adaptation whilst on a large scale, Darwinian survival concepts continue to rule. This interdependent relationship makes human cause and effect at once. Within this framework, the intention is to show humans in relationship to the environment and their responsibility in climate change; man adapting to the effects of his own product.
Excellence award on: CREAM 2009 – Int. Festival for Arts and Media Yokohama, Japan.
Second prize on: GIGUK - Gießen VideoArt Festival 2009. Germany

Dead SEEquences by Fabio ScacchioliDead SEEquences is a video composed of 3770 frames. Working frames by frames, we find that nothing happens inside each single image, but all pass between the frames, in the invisible gap that separate a frame by others. The film is here, but there isn't something to see, the most important remain invisible and uncertain.
There is no truth to discover. The truth is always elsewhere.

Goodbye Victoria by Diran Lyons and Matthew PotterBradley Mason (William Patrick Shaffer) needs a job, or so says his girlfriend, Victoria (Victoria Amato). A tempting opportunity arises when he reunites with old friend Randy (Tyler Jopek), who had moved away from their boyhood city of Charleston to California.
Goodbye Victoria provides various impressions of scenesters in the United States, whilst reflecting on the notions of contradiction, infidelity, memory, time, and the effort to increase one’s power through deception.
The first full-length film by co-directors Diran Lyons and Matthew Potter, Goodbye Victoria is a disorienting, time-line jumping, hipster-flavored homage to Godard.

Copyright is for losers by Ninotchka Art ProjectWith the appropriation, manipulation and edition of a big quantity of images and sounds, I make a new piece that questions the limits of the copyright and of the originality of the work of art.
