Mustererkenntnis / Pattern Cognition
Bombardment of a flickering screen accompanied with thrilling audio. This work might make you hypersensitive to the other sounds in your surroundings: a sudden sneeze from someone, or the sounds of a fruit fly. This work challenges the capacities of perception and reception, as much as how videos can make one feel comfortable and at ease, works like this with flashing graphics and distinctive sounds lets one question how technology can guide us to feel certain ways without any physical stimuli.
Thorsten Fleisch― Artist
Thorsten Fleisch (1972, Koblenz, Germany) began experimenting with super 8 film while still in high school. He went on to study with Peter Kulbelka at the Städelschule in Frankfurt. His films have been screened at festivals worldwide including New York Film Festival, Sarajevo Film Festival, Int. Film Festival Rotterdam, EMAF, Melbourne Int. Film Festival and many more. “I make experimental short films. They are literally experimental (...) as I really consider my films little visual and aural investigations. I have a theme that I’m interested in, it might be a material like for examples crystals (in my film kosmos) or something less solid and concrete like high voltage (in my film energie!), and then experiment on that theme regarding what I can get out of it with film and video technology.”
