Film Festival Rotterdam has brought cinema to the large screen. We think that the intimacy of small mobile screens are giving new impulses to the cinematic experience. V2_ will present a series of films and animations small enough to
watch in the palm of your hand.
Acquaint yourself with a new 3D film experience on the iPod or iPad at the Palm Top Theater exhibition. V2_ initiated a workshop for students and artists to generate new artworks for
this intimate 3D environment. Experiments with space and interaction will form
the heart of the exhibition.
Visitors will experience film and animation in a way that is
strikingly similar to pre-cinema, when watching a moving
image was an intimate and individual experience. At the same time, the Palm Top Theater will
offer a glimpse of a cinema of the future in which the developments
in mobile communication technology and the changing roles of users and
producers will have a profound effect on the future of cinema.
New artworks for the Palm Top Theater exhibition are being developed
by artists Joost Rekveld (NL), Geert Mul (NL), Lia (AT), Arno Coenen (NL), and FoAM (BE) together with Performing Pictures (SE).
