Jan van Nuenen at IFFR
Warning: Petroleum Pipeline
A photo and video collage in black and white computer animation. A desolate desert landscape is slowly transforming into a futuristic industrialized world. Indefinable machines are branching off into more complex mechanisms, which are producing an industrial soundtrack while moving rhythmically.
The Origin of Creepers
This real-time computer simulation of a fictional ecosystem is a breath-taking visual trip. Originally developed for the woods of Vlieland for the Into The Great Wide Open festival, it has now been adapted for Rotterdam, the natural habitat of IFFR, in collaboration with Art Rotterdam. It will be shown during the evenings on the 'backside' of the Pathé Schouwburgplein.
