‘The main topic of AMIFF 2016

The theme of the first festival is ‘Memory and Identity’. The relatively short history of film is now starting to measure up to a considerable size, and our identity is intertwined by film. Questions like ‘how does movements in film history reflect on movements in society?’, ‘how do we understand ourselves through film and moving images and its history?’ and ‘How are memories and identity treated in film and moving images?’ will be explored.

The theme ‘Memory and Identity’ is inspired by the strong focus currently on the use of archive material in moving images today. Topics for discussions that springs out of this are fact and fiction, power and powerlessness. Who gets their stories told? Can art function as democratization of archive material?’

At Random String symposium June 10th 2016, Warwick Arts centre, University of Warwick, UK I worked live on a new Kinetic Collage work using hashtags, tweets, graphics and photos scraped from Twitter. The recycled digital debris formed an abstract document of the symposium and later microFestival held at City Arcade, Coventry 11th June 2016.

FILE Electronic Language International Festival 2016

Auroville Dream (Tales From the City) will appear at FILE Electronic Language International Festival, Brazil 2016 as part of the Anima+Games program.

In the 2016 edition of the FILE Festival, after nearly a decade carrying FILE GAMES and FILE ANIMA+ independently, we decided to unite both festivals to create ANIMA+GAMES. By joining animations and games in the same event, we can point out aspects that would go unnoticed if shown under the very logic of each one of them.

It’s not about just a way to raise similarities and differences, but especially to emphasize the creative aspects that can occur in the mutual influence of both medium. To this end, we conceptualize what we call metanoumos. We are inspired by the concept already known of the games theory: the metagame, which states that any strategy or action, as well as methodologies used in games, go beyond the set of certain pre-stablished rules. They are those heterodox and external elements that affect and change the decision of who plays.

ANIMA+GAMES is an event that aims to show and to encourage the mutual influence of both medium. On one hand, the animations with its own strategies of creation and production with its already known influence from cinema, and on the other, games, with the notorious problem between narratology and ludology, and also between games and metagame.

“Sluice__ bring attention to highly credible artwork across a number of disciplines, in this instance screen based media. The recent Sluice fair during Frieze week demonstrated their commitment to showcase art forms ranging from performance to painting, new media to site specific installation and the attendance and reception of the fair showed London’s appetite for a variety of contemporary art offerings in this busy period reaches beyond the pull of Regents
