Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven
A film about love, identity and re-incarnation, all trapped in the cycle of evolution. ‘The Lips of Osiris Ani’ was originally made to accompany a live performance by Club Moral in which Danny Devos shouts, his head under water, the sound amplified by a hydrophone...

LOOKING UP

Bernard Gigounon
‘Looking up’ is, as Gigounon puts it himself, a trip through time and space between the astounding and reality. The short video starts with a sky at night, accompanied by the mesmerising sound of an army of crickets. We look up, as the image evolves very slowly it becomes clear to us that the thing we thought to have seen is not actually what it was, or is...

THE CONTAINERTAPES

Els Dietvorst
In the summer of 2001 the artists organisation NICC placed a container on the Fontainas square in the heart of Brussels. For one week Els Dietvorst used the container for auditions. 200 people auditioned in five days! This video is a report of three hours of these auditions...

ROMANTICOS DE LAS MARISMAS

Luc Gobyn - Luke Aaron Clark - Luismí Garcia

Hans Op de Beeck

The cold, self-reflecting strips light slides towards us over the stairs, and betrays a downward movement. In this symmetrical image only the metal of the escalator stairs can be seen: no actors, no props...

BREAKDOWN

Karen Vanderborght
In ’Breakdown’ digital editing techniques such as morphing are used to bend, crush and transfigure two different perspectives of a flat building into each other in a background that does the same in the opposite direction...

OUR CITY

Maria Tarantino
This is Brussels, the capital of Europe, a city of concrete cages wrapped in glass, planned by businessmen and politicians, set in motion by construction workers, and animated by office people. But there, in the narrow spaces just beyond the reach of bureaucracy, lies the Brussels that still breathes...

QUOD

Alexis Destoop
‘Quod’ is based on medical macro pictures of the eye. Through animation techniques the inner depth of the perceived “object” was accentuated. Then the animation was integrated into a 3D model, which was conceived as an unfolding surface. Contradictory principles are bundled together in a slowly transforming dynamic, a hypnotic dance of micro movements....
