Palm Top Theater Exhibition
In the context of the IFFR "Palm Top Theater" was launched. For this exhibition, curated by Maki Ueda, more than 25 artworks were realized for this immersive cinema device.
The International 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.
Thanks very much to our workshop leaders: Kasper van der Horst and Denise Pakes.
