Dovilė Aleksaitė Graduation Project

Let’s talk about the weather (2019) Single channel video installation, 12:07 min, loop A video explores a desire to control one’s surrounding environment and predict the future. A fictional weather forecast introduces the viewer through a succesion of weather events—rain, wind or growth of grass—and different emotional states. In this work Aleksaite combines Beaufort`s scale of wind with a David R. Hawkins scale of emotions: High vibrating emotions come together with a light wind and the wind gets stronger as the emotions as anger or shame come along.

Kathrin Hunze, Singularis

SS 2019 Graduation Project The audiovisual performance ‘Singularis’ deals with biological and information technology granular processes in the social context. We undergo unconscious or conscious self-control through Quantified Self management and evolve into improved, elevated people. This process can be described as a singularization of man. Singularis is a Granalysator in which collected biological matter is scanned into point clouds and through an audiovisual granular system is transformed into synthetic bodies. Through the Granalysator emerges an artificially created mesocosmos. “A high-resolution world and the singularized human being are conceivable only in a complex network, in a web of interactions.” -Christoph

Hara Shin Graduation Project

Mouthless Dialogue single-channel video, 6:07 min., 2019 Technology and digital imaging allow us to optimise alternative experiences to satisfy a certain absence in reality. The optimised state is simulated in the scope of artificial alternatives such as artificial sun-lighting for light therapy, machine-made nature sounds to relax the body and mind, ASMR and cosmic and natural images, screensaver-like, on the computer screen. The human psyche encounters the vulnerable and subtle tension of reality surrounded by technical illusions.   Immaterial Mapping single-channel video, 11:11 min., 2018 As an experiment in digital topography, the scenes drift along within the cognitive space —

Ding! * Mengxuan Sun

Audiovisual Live Performance SS 2019 Graduation Project The growing visual language of digital technology and the Internet in the physical world has created an endless landscape. In addition to the landscape, the relationship changed by the network provide people a shared utopian vision. Everything can be shared and consumed. Nowadays human beings have adapted to the world which symbiosis with human race and intelligent machines. The human body becomes an interface that connects reality and virtuality. Human beings are no longer considered to be natural objects that God has made with clay. Humans make machines and parasitic on machines. The

Aaike Stuart – Quake + Stone Works

Stone Works and Quake – explore current relations to media technology, or better, to the outside world through media technology. Both, moving and photographic imagery has been obtained from the web and transferred to physical objects. Causing them to get distorted, cracked and shaken up. Due to the application of natural forces, Aaike Stuart examines materiality in the digital age.   Quake The video installation Quake is an attempt to stabilize video footage of the 2015 Nepal earthquake in a physical manner by setting the projector into counter-movement, using a subwoofer. Being a form of ‘expanded cinema’, Quake addresses the interactions

Silke Schwarz, Ode und Ich

Ode und Ich untersucht die Macht der Inszenierung, der Kontrolle und den Körper als kritische Masse. In der Installation wird unser Begehren nach Perfektionierung, Idealen und Körperkult aufgegriffen. Es werden durch Demontage, Überspitzung, Verfremdung und Überlagerung stereotypische Repräsentationen hinterfragt und die Vereinheitlichung unseres Individualisierungszwangs beleuchtet. Ode and I examines the power of staging, control and the body as a critical mass. In the installation our desire for perfection, ideals and body cult is getting centered. Through disassembly, exaggeration, alienation and superimposition, stereotypical representations and the compulsion of our individualization are questioned.     Ode und Ich Installation, 2018 Audio 8:15,

Sabrina Labis graduation project

[Show thumbnails] Graduation Project KuM, 2017 Sabrina Labis A Personal Color Correction (2017) Experimental Video, 05:22 min The video ‘A Personal Color Correction’ deals with different aspects of color in film and the transformation from analog to digital techniques of color correction. The work specifically focuses on the role of women in film production and is an homage to all female film colorists who were an important part of the early film industry. Finally this video ‘corrects’ the male-dominated documentation of film history in a personal and subjective way. Studio (2017) Neon Light, 27×10 cm ‘Studio’ is a place of

The Circle, the Triangle, the Rectangle and the Crossing

[Show thumbnails] The Circle, the Triangle, the Rectangle and the Crossing is an attempt to decompose the stereoscopic image into its essential parts, in an analogue way, without its aura of being spearhead technology. Six projectors in a triangular structure create one single image in a screen in front of them: A crossing of roads. After having filmed the movement with two cameras situated one next to the other —simulating the distance between the eyes as in a human face —, each of these films is separated into three channels —red, green and blue, or RGB—. The films of each

Graduation project from Eleanor Jones

[Show thumbnails] Eleanor Jones AI in Arcadia, 2016 This was a two-part work presented in a performance lecture and a double screen video installation. The performance lecture addresses the vulnerability of the artist’s body and the performance of proving one’s “body of work” to the judge of an audience, in this case an examination context. She attempted to deconstruct the constraints of an artist’s presentation, with silent performance, narrative, and critical analysis. Without voice, the body of the artist acts as a semantic channel with which the audience are forced to engage in decoding meaning throughout the presentation. This plays
