FIGURE A

'Figure A' (2016), is a short animated artist film predominantly in black and white, based on footage captured during an artist residency in Cappadocia, Turkey. The artist director Karin Gunnarsson poetically experiments with modularity, symmetry and rythm through an imaginative network of references to mineralogy, alchemy, Pythagoras and the fugues of JS Bach and the Turkish maqam. Motion Graphics by Akane Hiraoka

SYNOPSIS:

An interplanetary explorer crashlands on a barren planet where it confidently familiarises itself with the surroundings. Through special categorizing and analytical powers, the visitor learns to appropriate the environment and the cultural remnants and allows them to transform and transport it towards new horizons.

PLATO`S PLATES

'Platos Plates' (2013). Paper is brittle, malleable and full of potential; a suitable metaphor for qualities of the human mind. Like the archetypal creature, ouroboros, eating its own tail, the character in Plato`s Plates is ingesting the very material from which it is made and a story of transformation ensues. Starring Liza Callinicos. Director of Photography Jake Scott. Music Composition Noriko Uno
