An extravagant film that appears as a message from outer space. A cryptic cocktail of thermodynamic laws, Egyptian gods and extra-stellar intelligence. Chen Yin-ju's primary medium is video, but she also works with photos, installation and drawing. Her recent projects explore the relationship between the cosmos and human behaviour.

PlaceholderHenna-Riikka Halonen 8′
This kaleidoscopic compilation film about biogenetics, 3D printers and new models of artificial intelligence raises questions about new forms of virtual life.
#57Joost Rekveld 14′
A categorical accumulation of abstract patterns. Lines, colours and sounds obey an impenetrable logic. A quiet film that dares to be resolutely experimental.
