sadescription A Fundamental Error
3mn25   color   stereo   2016   Spain
by Alberte Pagán
"A Fundamental Error" is a retake on my portrait of Kubelka Surfaces - Peter (tube), in which I reshot his face off a tube screen. Here I delve into its hexadecimal code so that it degenerates even further. The champion of analog cinema, the meticulous montage artist, thus becomes an utterly unpredictable dance of digits and codes.

sadescription Conventions in western art favor portraits that position the face slightly off-center to avoid disturbing symmetrical compositions
1mn20   b/w   stereo   2016   United Kingdom
by Slawomir Milewski
Carbon dioxide from burning fuels causes global warming, a process capable of changing the world's climate significantly. The amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has increased steadily over the past 150 years, and so has the average global temperature.

sadescription Tension Sketch_3
3mn03   color   sil   2015   Australia
by Scott Morrison
The work uses the complete transcribed text of the June 2014 orientation video message as delivered from then Australian Government Immigration Minister Scott Morrison. This "message" was played to detained refugees on Nairu and Manus Island in their attempt to arrive to Australia by boat and subsequent capture and detainment. The similarities of our shared namesake are obvious - this work takes the perhaps humorous coincidence and instead looks to provoke and question notions of privilege, representation and authority. The work acts as a broader portraiture of national identity - when the individual, the politician is removed from the original context does it also represent all Australians as the words are representative of Government mandate? The karaoke styled treatment towards the text offers a visual counterpoint - evoking a paradise filled with hope and burgeoning safe shore - as if in a dream.

sadescription Affordable Dreams 01
1mn21   color   sil   2017   France
by Sandrine Deumier
Through the apparent variety of cybernetic bodies, the series Affordable Dreams present fictional variations of state of consciousness. In this dehumanized dream world, connected or/and augmented bodies stretch out in remained desirous objects to turn out to be just the reflection of their own affective machines. This reflection is perhaps none than an other state of human being.

sadescription Soft Butterfly
0mn51   color   sil   2016   France
by Sandrine Deumier
An androgynous character wakes up in a space which is neutral and translucent. Formed by a moldable and reconfigurable material, this extremely tactile space is a place where anything is possible. The character adapts to her emotional states and elements of her surroundings. However, this ability to return from infinity to her reconfigurable reality will eventually present its limits.

sadescription SONG N°24
3mn45   color   stereo   2015   France
by Céline Trouillet
A young man from Montpellier performs "Wild World" by Cat Stevens. The pictorial aspect suggested by the backdrop evoking nature in terms of fauna and flora, combined with the classical references hinted at by the floral crown worn by the singer, associated with pagan gods, conjure up the savage and Dionysian side of the world. This is echoed by the title of the song and reminds us that the destiny of human beings lies beyond their control, at the mercy of external forces.

sadescription Municca
7mn50   color   stereo   2017   Italy
by Salvatore Insana
Facing the boundaries, losing the contours. Island inside island, Municca, Santa Teresa di Gallura. Corsica on the horizon. Wind and granite. Enduring the phase of dormancy with the blazing sun, between tracks bleached from the sea, the eroded thought, in touch with forces that do not want (more) to know about human being.
