Hallucinations in variations. Last moments of life, synaesthetic delights, bad trips and mind-expanding pulsations.

The influence of ocular light perception on metabolism in man and in animal
Thomas Draschan & Stella Friedrichs (Germany, 2005, 16mm, 05:00 min)
A found footage film, which uses an Italian Sixties softporn soundtrack, which is repeated twice. Each time a sequence of images is synched to the soundtrack. The film images are illustrating acts of ocular light perception as well as imagery with strong visual impact.

Mirror mechanics
Siegfried A. fruhauf (Austria, 2005, 35mm, 07:30 min)
The mirror is an instrument of deception. It can never correspond with the images presented to it, although it can reverse them, twist them into their antitheses: into counter images.

Kurt d’Haeseleer & Wies Hermans (Belgium, 2005, video, 09:00 min)
Fossilization is a hermetic meditation on the happy decay of Western civilization. It blends oil addiction, social segregation, speed, mass tourism and mass media into a dirty pixel cocktail with a sour aftertaste.

Oliver Pietsch (Germany, 2004, video, 14:00 min)
Scenes from mainstream movies skilfully edited into a stream of unconsciousness and elevated by an emotive sound mix. Sneak a peek at high times in Hollywood with this compilation of fake intoxication.

Robert Seidel (Germany, 2004, video, 10:01 min)
_grau is a personal reflection on memories coming up during a car accident, where past events emerge, fuse, erode and finally vanish ethereally. A very private snapshot of a whole life within its last seconds.

Ryoichi Kurokawa (Japan, 2004, video, 04:05 min)
Sound and image are constructed of completely digital generated materials and treated as a unit.

Tina Frank (Austria, 2004, video, 02:00 min)
The doors of perception, electronic style.

Even odd even
Barbara Doser (Austria, 2004, video, 07:30 min)
A pulsating pattern of black and white lines, permeated by a thick carpet of sound. The vision glides at times as in picture puzzles into a new spatial dimension.

Michaela Schwentner (Austria, 2004, video, 05:25 min)
Schwentner translated the music of Radian into an abstract video, using evolving square and rectangular windows.

Thorsten Fleisch (Germany, 2004, video, 05:15 min)
The mystery of the crystals under closer examination. What is it that makes them possess magic powers as claimed by mystics thorough the ages? by growing crystals directly on film their mystical qualities shine straight to the screen.
