    "Victory" is a computational exploration of the Hellenistic sculpture "Nike of Samothrace". The classical masterpiece is decomposed and reconstructed using an algorithmic 3D model analysis. The extrusions are generated by a custom software patch. The 3D polygonal structure is analysed and re-meshed according to various parameters. Motion is never entirely predictable. Through a process of dynamic deconstruction and the shifting lens of digital technology, Victory offers a new experience of an iconic masterpiece.

    "Time o´ the Signs" is an experimental - narrative but also documentary - animation about digital time thieves of our time, media stupidities and ongoing daily routines. This work wants to question: how do we (not) want to live in a future society? Better, faster, more efficient, your faceless shadow in the cloud. Your clock: tick tock, Your stats? They drop... The system knows you, better than you do. So you post as a ghost, you stream your dream and you augment life´s content. Say “Buy Buy” to happiness! A.S.A.P.! C.W.O.T... Machine life balance, apple every day, so smart! Designed for the deadline, you resigned from your life, fin(e)? In your safe home, immersed in your comfort zone: Time´s up-load? Life filed? All under Control? Or just "Ctrl - alt – delete"?...

    URBAN SPHINX is an animated short film that creatively documents the presence of street art at various neighbourhoods of Valencia, Spain, between 2018 y 2019. In URBAN SPHINX are animated these pieces of ephemeral art, connecting each image in continuity like the frames of a film. All these faces look at us with widely opened eyes, as if they tell us that we exist, but we might not exist —and the world would go on.

    This work is 'digital direct animation' made by overlaying digitized 8mm films and scratching them by Photoshop. Using my diary film taken from January 2016 to August 2017 as a material, the video taken with my iPhone at 12:25 June 29, 2017 appears.

    Directed by: Yuri Muraoka
    Screenplay: Yuri Muraoka
    Animation: Yuri Muraoka
    Music: Mendelssohn / Elias, Op.70 ( W.Sawallisch / Rec. in 1968 )
    Production/School: Nonoho Suzuki
    Dialogue language: No dialogue

    The portrait of me and my daughters which depicts the relationship between “the personality” and “the world / the society” as of 2018. This is the story about an intense dichotomy inside / outside of me. It goes back and forth between “the personality” and “the world / the society”, my daughters become social / universal existences from personal existences. The definition of “red” extends to “life” and appears as a powerless and religious Daruma doll which loses its arms and legs. “White” and “black” rise above a simple dichotomy and start to possess the concept of “gray”. And the world which is made of a mix of various colors becomes “transparent”. If you keep sticking to “the personality”, it changes to “the world”. This is my destination throughout my creative activities and shows what the world is.

    Music: Jing Wang
    Production/School: harvey goldman, Jing Wang

    Uriel, prophet of poetry, prince of presence, archangel of the sun, propounds a new troublous truth and suffers the slings and arrows of the celestial Czars.The tumultuous times are upon us. Oh, Nicolaus Copernicus, transcendental historian of heliocentric geometry, forgive us, absolve us, evolve us, if you can. The “visual music” collaborations of Jing Wang and Harvey Goldman attempt to produce a synesthesia like experience. The audience is encouraged to “see” the music and “hear” the visuals. The imagery and audio components are constructed without hierarchy, a true melding of sound and image.

    There are 11,926 pharmaceutical drugs available worldwide, this film shows 2863 of them. Pills and capsules are choreographed into a cacophony of shape, color and size, resulting in a satirical commentary about our cultural, recreational, and economic dependency on pharmaceutical drugs.

  25. Worms 'n Holes: A film not about science 01:00
  26. United States 2019
    Directed by: Jeremy Speed Schwartz

    This film is not about Einstein-Rosen bridges, annelid behavior or geological formations. Any connections drawn between this work and metaphysical concepts of cyclical time are not the fault of the animator. Furthermore, the animator takes no responsibility for your epiphanies regarding 10-dimensional matter interactions, the psychological underpinnings of trypophobia or methods of asexual reproduction via quantum entanglement. This film is about Worms 'n Holes.

  27. Punto Agitato 11:17
  28. France 2019
    Directed by: Celia Eid, Pierre-Stéphane Meugé
    Production/School: Celia Eid
    Dialogue language: no language
    Subtitles language: no subtitles

    Punto Agitato unfolds in a moving world where there is no definite space nor precise time. A continual energy pervades Punto Agitato throughout  in a flutter of hesitant ambiguous and feverish gestures. Out of abstract images a narrative is born, which the spectator will interpret according to his own experience and sensibility.

  29. Jealousy 07:18
  30. United States 2020
    Directed by: Kimberly Burleigh

    Jealousy is an experimental 3D animation. It features an elemental digital construction of the plantation house meticulously described in the seminal 1957 novel La Jalousie by French writer Robbe-Grillet. No characters are depicted in the animation – just as the novel emphasizes settings and objects over characters/dialogue. The compulsively observed settings and objects reveal the obsessive mindset of the main character, a jealous husband who suspects his wife of having an affair. The soundtrack features sounds described in the novel; nocturnal animal cries, insects whirring, etc. The animation expands on the novel by making settings and objects dynamic; furniture self-constructs, objects move, and lights shift.
