Daniel Rossa & Urban Screen – 555 Kubik Projection
How would it be, if a house was dreaming?
This is the question Daniel Rossa asked before creating Kubuik 555, which was custom made to be projected on the facade of the Hamburg Kunsthalle.
‘The basic idea of narration was to dissolve and break through the strict architecture of O. M. Ungers’ “Galerie der Gegenwart” says Rossa, who worked on the project with Urbanscreen, a company that specialises in producing custom media installations using large-scale projection.
Sandra Eber : Unfettered
Unfettered is a Silent stop-motion pinhole film, an experimental study in rhythm and movement that converts flowers from static and delicate icons into bold, dynamic graphic elements. The images were patiently acquired one frame at a time, without a computer or lens, using a 16mm film camera adapted for a variety of pinhole and double-slit techniques.
Images free from a lens
Flowers free from roots
Rhythm free from sound
A version with each row aligned horizontally was projected on the mediafacade of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb earlier this year.
Sandra Eber teaches at the Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema Concordia University, Canada.
