Entrop draws inspiration from the pre-film animation device called the cylindrical zoetrope: a spinning cylinder containing a sequence of images or three dimensional objects resulting in the illusion of motion. Entrop is based on a virtual three dimensional version of such a zoetrope, using digital means to go beyond the traditional physical relation of energy and movement. The work explores the tension between various forces and spatial perception in sound and moving image: energy is being fed into a system, resulting in movement and centrifugal forces. During this build up of energy and speed the system becomes unstable and new accidental possibilities of sensory perception present themselves.
Entrop has been screened at Sonic Acts, Amsterdam, NL; Stuttgarter Filmwinter, Stuttgart, DE; Aguilar Film Festival, Aguilar, ES, Simultan Festival, Timisoara, RO; and VIS Vienna Shorts, AU.
The work is part of the online edition of the Kurzfilmtage in Oberhausen in May 2020.
