The dream life has always been there. Mere shapes ever so clear and distinct. It is as if her little mind invented these shapes, labyrinths of the mind and for the mind - to drift away and try to lose oneself.  Sliding and hopping between different layers, she will perform together with you; a choreography, a game with no end and a music piece assembled into a sublime instrument to be played out by the sensitive user.
The Patabotany drawings of phantasmagoric trees and plans which intertangle and interdepend on each other, becomes a daydream world for a little girl who was found at the doorstep of a children's house in Rose Cottage Home in Dickleburgh around 1890.

Inspiration / Expiration

Inspiration / Expirationvideo for iPod by Pablo Dias [BR/NL] and Luciano Leite Barbosa [BR/US]
This piece relies on concrete elements to convey a non-narrative message. The starting point is the human body and the nature. By gathering short video and audio samples of organic components, the artists process and rearrange nature, exploring its audiovisual textures and rhythms in a digital looping collage.

Through A Grass Darkly

Through A Grass Darkly
video for iPod by Shihui [CN/NL]
This is a real-time music visualization for Hammock's music. I program continuous colorful ellipses to present the ambient sound, to create an atmosphere of obscurity.



video for iPod by Shihui [CN/NL]
This is a real-time music visualization for Hammock's music. I program cell-liked structure to express my feeling to this music.


Swimming pool everywhere

Swimming pool everywhere
video for iPod by Shihui [CN/NL]
This is a real-time music visualization for my music. The radius of each particle is connected to the frequencies of the music. The random colors are used to present the various electronic tones.


Disconexusvideo for iPod by Ludmila Rodrigues [BR/NL]
The video explores a film sequence extracted from Chinese Connection (A.K.A. Fist of Fury) repeated in three layers and some delay between each other. Each layer received one color channel, a scheme that recalls RGB channels and at the same time the lights of a disco club. The musical choice, which is purposely disconnected with the film, aims to build up new relations between image and sound.

A drift

A driftvideo for iPod by Ludmila Rodrigues [BR/NL]
The video is entirely composed by static images collected via Google search - cities' textures and patterns - in order to build a flow within the depths of the city. The feature of three layers provide the chance of increasing the feeling of a drift. The soundtrack, borrowed from John Oswald/Plunderphonics, a notorious project of sound collage, adds to the copy n' paste character of this work.

Brothers of Metal

Brothers of the sword
piercing through hypocrisy
soldiers of retribution
on the battlefield of evolution

You are many, we are one
brotherhood, father to son
out of reach, out of sight
cross our path, we will fight

We have come this far
we will not step back
we have come to take what's ours
we are ready to attack

howls of derision
echo through the forest
we are wolves, you are prey
no remorse, proud to be this way


TrailScapevideo for iPad by Geert Mul [NL]
When you look out of a train window the elements of the landscape seem to pass by in different speeds. Things close to you travel fast, while mountains in the back don't seem to pass at all... And in that dreamy state of mind that i get while watching landscapes passing by for hours, sometimes locations start to mix up..

videos for iPad by André Cavalheiro [PT/NL]
Videos made from a landscape drawing to create the illusion of walking through lines. The three screens transform the walking path into a visual chaos.

Video from a strange conversion, lines are transformed in visual pixelated patterns.


video for iPad by Yolanda Uriz [SP/NL]
Lepokoa means scarf, if you put it in your eyes it becomes a filter to see real world through, like the Haagse bos is seen in this work.




video for 32'' Flat Screen by Joost Rekveld [NL]
The agents in this piece are based on the first attempts of computerpioneer Alan Turing to model biological phenomena. They navigate a sonic space that stretches from Indian meditations on virtuality and duality on the one hand, to workers who get on with things on the other hand.
