Installation PLAKFILM at City:Land festival, 9-13 October 2018
With a role of tape and a magic lantern, the children in PLAKFILM gauge the turbulence of our age. They roll out transparent tape in the streets where they grew up. When they strip the tape away, an imprint of the city comes with it: dust, sand, candy wrappers, insects, glass, bits of fluff… The strips of tape thus form an ultra-realistic diary that is brought to life using an old magic lantern. Can all these forms and images help us to predict the future?
The installation Plakfilm is part of the festival CITY:LAND (Kaaitheater).

In Waking Hours at 8th Imagine Science Festival, New York, 16-24 October
The 8th Imagine Science Film Festival takes place October 16 – 24, 2015.
The festival theme is “AIR”!
Air. Nitrogen, Oxygen, Argon, Carbon Dioxide. The substance that fills our lungs and fills the skies. The medium through which birds and airplanes glide, not to mention sound waves. Easy to overlook, impossible to live without. The 8th Annual Imagine Science Film Festival will focus on air in all its forms and meanings: respiration, aeronautics, the elemental composition of the atmosphere, weather, climate, sublimation, gas properties, the mechanics of sound, and all of the mundane and esoteric ways in which air touches everything in and beyond our world.
Each night of the festival moves to a different venue, circulating through the tri-state area with 116 short films and 10 features. We celebrate both scientific merit and visually engaging cinema with awards presented on closing night.
This year’s program was curated with a great deal of help from Bennett Glace, Ozge Calafato, and Maya Edelman.
