Algae - Jesed Francis Moreno
Demos, once a tormented lab rat and later a monstrous creation of twisted experiments, found himself stranded on a desolate island, far removed from the trappings of civilization. His stomach gnawed with hunger, he delved deep into the lush jungle in search of sustenance, where he stumbled upon Sarpa Salpa, a peculiar fish known for its hallucinogenic properties rivaling even LSD. Desperation pushed Demos to capture and consume the Sarpa Salpa. As the hallucinatory effects gripped him, his reality shattered into a mesmerizing kaleidoscope of vibrant colors and surreal visions. In this altered state, he delved into the hidden recesses of his own psyche, confronting the monstrous nature imposed upon him and the torment he had endured. Remarkably, the psychedelic trip initiated a process of healing within Demos. It slowly unwound the darkness that had consumed him, allowing fragments of his humanity to resurface amidst the hallucinogenic voyage. As he meandered through the island's enchanting landscapes, the trip provided solace and introspection, piecing together his fractured soul. No longer a monstrous creation but a man on a surreal journey of self-discovery, Demos found himself on a path of redemption amidst the island's vibrant and enigmatic surroundings. The Sarpa Salpa's unwittingly therapeutic embrace had set him on a transformative course that would forever alter his destiny.
Night Periscope - Carl Knickerbocker
Discovered the Periscope social media app on my Apple TV. Appropriated images and voices over the course of several evenings and fabricated those into this collage. The site was discontinued in 2021.
Clap - Paul Shumaker
This film explores the use of both sound and text as response and the relationship between sound and soundless answers.
Banî - Felat Erkozan
Taking place on a suburban terrace, this video provides a perspective on issues of rage, provocation, and revenge in society through the childhood experience. The children fight on a high rooftop with strictly defined borders, surrounded by the layered urban landscape. Even if one side emerges victorious at the end of the fight, the boundaries are not broken, but rather reinforced by a cycle of revenge and violence. This video is part of the video series called "Ordinary Disasters", which focuses on social issues, specifically the concept of alienation from the perspective of an individual memory.
Rain Again - Pierre Yves Clouin
Here it comes.
Walking along, I filmed the reflection of the city and the sky on the rain-soaked ground. Anything in any shot (a bicycle, a tree trunk, a bench, and so on) that was not reflected on the ground was edited out, creating this assemblage of heterogenous screen formats.
Hystérisis - Ana Villanueva
The continuity of a discourse multiplies its materiality. A woman enters the scene and moves across the frame, unaware that the boundaries of the frame turn into her own trap. The continuity of the successive and excessive multiplicity of these women represents the memory that travels between the past and the future, in constant becoming. The transition from the different turns towards the homogeneous, and the feeling of the same, of the identical, begins to grow. Space and movement are the gaps in memory that fill up until they engulf everything, only to be emptied completely. The body becomes ephemeral, and the question of our existence takes on a revealing weight.
PART 03 - Lein ASCII
A walking film, that wander aimlessly in a digital ambient.
Phase - Oh Minwook
This film excavates the period of ordeal on the site of ‘Busan Modern History Museum’. The site had once been ‘Busan branch of Dongyang-Cheocksik Co., LTD’ during Japanese colonial period, and, soon after independence, was used as ‘Busan American Cultural Center’. Divided by the window frame, the shapes the film projects endeavors to stay in the building and hypnotize us. Split landscape and silent texts examine the weathered memories of the past, and the images we are limited to the exterior of the building. Window, which stands between the camera and the landscape, is almost invisible. This sense of invisibility is thus an evidence of the time endured. After all, the combination of ‘Busan American Cultural Center Arson Incident of 1982′ media coverage and its remains continuously generates afterimage.
Anagnorisis - Sophie Bouloux
Reversal, moving from ignorance to knowledge. The reversal, “anagnorisis,” is a celebration of perseverance, curiosity, and the human capacity to evolve. It's an invitation to embrace the unknown, to confront our own limitations and to seek understanding even when the answer seems distant. It's a reminder that in our quest for knowledge, there is always a moment of revelation, a moment when truth emerges from the darkness of ignorance, and as we become more aware, the light of understanding shines brightly. It's a deeply human journey, where we move from darkness to clarity, from confusion to understanding. Anagnorisis is a catalyst for personal growth and understanding of the world around us.

A Dose of Dream - Batuhan Yıldız
As we journey through a child's dream landscape, we witness a fascinating series of paintings and mirrors that reflect and distort our perception of reality.
Ultime Orgie - Johann Philippe
Experimental glitch abstract film with electroacoustic music.
Sous la Terre - Claude Ciccolella
Experimental glitch abstract film with electroacoustic music. The trauma of natural disaster is highlighted in this first part by a volcanic spectral imagery, a belching of fire, smoke and tremors, where the imagination of this frightening phenomenon and the ambivalence of life and death, could have ensure the benefit of catharsis. But the jolt of war quotes, superimposed on this staggering spectacle, plunges us into an intersubjectivity of telluric emotions and an enclave with two languages, that of the image and the written word.
BLINK - Laura Hyunjhee Kim & Chris Corrente
“Blink” examines Human/AI collaboration as a breakpoint in concepts of creativity and artistic identity.
To 'blink' creates a point of convergence and entanglement; a transitory event that holds the power to fix or unfix reality. Each 'blink' creates a subspace beyond what the retina registers, fracturing space-time experiences. 'Blink-by-blink,' the artist duo unveils an indeterminate destination illuminated with imperceptible happenings. AI generated images narrate speculative futures unlocked in kinship with software based co-dreamers. 'Neither here nor there,' an oscillating push and pull between the human-performers and their diffractive aura creates an unresolved cyborgian-world. Contention and flux are deliberate and persistent. In a high-velocity moment of cultural creation, 'blink' and you might miss it, whatever 'it' may be.
Rooted in the pop-sensibilities of contemporary techno-cultural vernacular and poetics, the resulting experiment is a series of kaleidoscopic artifacts and complex culmination of moving images—purposely and immediately outdating itself — provoking human/AI creative collaboration.
Extinction - Luis Saray
"Extinction" is an ambiguous meaning’s operation that brings together 35 mm film fragments rescued from the trash near the Buenos Aires downtown cinemas; re-edited and Soundtracked mixing solar and planetary vibrations captured by NASA, and noises developed playing kraakdoos and other circuit bending sound devices; to re-signify commercial films narrative from the national cinema and Hollywood blockbusters. in an experimental fusion of textual, sonorous, and visual signs; that as vestiges of post-apocalyptic visions and crisis of discourses, serves the idea for reforming the image and its interpretations to allow new meanings, even ambiguous.
** In different mythologies the solar deity is the maximum power light and force. but, human sacrifice is not enough, the stars can devour us sooner than we thought.
* cinema’s movies has imagined the end of the world several times. We really do'nt know how it will be, but by the way of humanity act looks that we will soon be able to discover it and that it will not be so funny or entertaining as at the movies.
La fuerza de los elementos - Isabel Perez del Pulgar
A force is any action capable of changing the state of rest of a body, changing the state of motion, producing deformations and changes in that body. The elements of a force are direction, direction, direction, intensity and point of application. Forces may be contact or distance forces and may or may not move with bodies. Normally, a body is subjected to a composition of forces acting at the same time. This combined action is equivalent to one and the same force.
A storm, an iceberg and a wave, natural phenomena that stun by their violent nature and sublime beauty. Before which the feeling and emotion of being and being are displaced from one's own body. Reaching a state in which the fragility of one's own existence is imprinted.
These uncontrollable and uncontrollable forces appear and disappear in a dance of perpetual transformation. Transforming the territories, transforming the bodies in their continuous and violent movement.

Buenos chicos - James Tabbush
Buenos Chicos is a film made by a wandering, non-human intelligence. The viewer travels through a long night of images. Images constantly dissolve and reform. On the Internet, it's always night.
From the place where the light goes out - Sandrine Deumier
Inspired by existing natural environments and carried by the notion of porosity of temporal planes and crossing of geological surfaces, this work is a dive into intermediate landscapes, neither natural nor artificial, beyond human memories.
