Pencil Test
David Ehrlich

Bird Shit

Sometimes, abstraction can be found in the everyday, right underneath your feet. In fact, sometimes it kind of finds you, you just have to look hard enough.

Vocal calisthenics and an ultra stunning example of the peak art of synchronisation.

Pop Psychology - Messages From Synapse 27

A lively blast of attention grabbing sound and images take licence with ideas from the neuroscience of communication between neurons carried by synapses – or something like that.

In an act of near ultimate meta filmmaking, a 16mm film has been dismantled to its tiniest fragments and reassembled as a projectable montage.

An abstract animation that seeks to extend the language of landscape and natural forms into the sensual and psychological space of painting and dance.

Barcode III.0
Adriaan Lokman
Holland, 8'30, 2013 (NL)
A unique journey across a topography created entirely from a form of digital light and shadow, that have been affected by a bristling terrain of poles bending that light in every direction.

Triptyque
Pierre Trudeau
Canada, 3'10, 2012 (NL)
Pirouetting through the innards of the boards, precious metals and wiring that make up our computers, this film works as an exploration into our informatics and electronic waste.

An invitation to associative realisation via a parade of abstract ink drawings that meander through timid encounters and dynamic pursuits.

An intensely imaginative exploration of the way we interact with the opposing pages of a book, utilising a vast collection of lead and wood type to print directly onto film stock.

Steven Woloshen
Canada, 3'22, 2014 (NL)
Made entirely in the front seat of a car with simple art tools direct to film, this hand-made short celebrates the joy of road maps, travel and jazz music.
