Sebastian Buerkner at IFFR
Animation about a vivid imagination that can be a seductive but debilitating distraction from life.
Flash animated objects as witnesses and players in parallel universes, impacted and agitated by their unexpected roles. Buerkner spectacularly allows us to visualise this virtual graffiti, revealing the full story.
Opening with the promise that 'The following film contains stroboscopic/flashing imagery from the start!', Triband puts the flash into flash animation.
The Chimera of M.
Idiosyncratic, stereoscopic 3D animation. Film as a moving sculpture, a web of spatial deceit, with snippets of arguments, desires and lust.
A riveting play on illustration, online found footage is densely reimagined to ask us whether how we hear is determined by what we see.
Tosse not my soule
Familiar sights of everyday life are abstracted by Sebastian Buerkner’s lush digital animation that contemplates the place of spiritual transcendence today.
Patterns of night travel and night travel in patterns. Eaves Apart is a brilliantly coloured collage of overheard conversations, transitory sights, crowds, rain-lashed windows.
"Say something new!" Moving in together confronts a couple with inevitable adjustments to their personal autonomy.
Impressions of a city divided: no use trying to keep afloat in the tangle of images stitched together into a stereoscopic whole.
