01. PLANET SIGMA, 12’
Directed by Momoko Seto
Screenplay: Momoko Sete
Director of Photography: Momoko Sete, Julien Duillery
Sound Design: Yann Leguary
Music: Yann Leguay
The universe in all its infinitude. On planet Sigma, enormous creatures are trapped inside the ice. And then, all of a sudden explosions erupt from subterranean volcanoes. The ice begins to melt; a global warming concludes the giants’ deep slumber and new life begins. The creatures crawl forth, out of the ice. With the aid of slow motion, Seto fictionalises the unfolding of events. Liberated from time and space, she draws ever closer to the proceedings, in extreme close-ups. PLANET ∑ is the third part of her planet series.

Shhh... was a project, focusing on coastal erosion and the destructive/healing nature of the sea. It is based on collaboration between sisters Alice Bouttell and Helen Jaeger, who wrote a poem from the viewpoint of the sea as a charming and sometimes aggressive lover to the land. It considers the irrepressible characteristics of the sea and relates them in the context of seduction. The poem was translated into French and read by actor Chris Rose. The translation reflects the tone of the original text and contributes a seductive sonic element.

08. THE TIME TUNNEL, 5’ 25’’
Directed by Dirk Koy
Animation: Dirk Koy

A crazy road-movie that seems to melt down into an abstract painting. In the first part Dirk Koy straps a camera onto a carwheel and rides off – from 0 to 140 km/h, to the driving sounds of Boris Blank (Yello). A perfect symbiosis of shot images and their abstraction. In the second part Koy mashed up images of over 250 car wheels into a single, whirling, kaleidescopic animation.

Friday Night is an experiment with sound and motion. There are no messages or hidden agendas, other than to reveal the discoveries made during my investigations. There is, of course, the seed of an idea or a bit of a plan when I begin, but I am quickly directed by the work, answering the needs, sorting the puzzles and discovering solutions through the aid of technology.

“Ἅλϛ” (“hals”) aims to tell the extreme suffering of immigrants died in the Mediterranean sea. The hypertonic drowning syndrome causes a very violent death through osmotic mechanisms, like those destroy the small organisms in the video. A metaphoric representation of biochemical and physiological events of drowning, conceived as an artistic ode to contemporary human drama. The ancient greek word ἅλϛ (“hals”) means salt, which contains sodium, one of the principal elements for the life. But sea salt produces brutal death of million migrant people in Mediterranean. Indeed, the word ἅλϛ is etimologically linked to “hospitality” and also to “salary” that is a factor of ancient economy, as well as the death boundaries for the economy in western societies.
