Energie! won the 3. prize at Movies & Stills in Frankfurt [Germany] and is nominated for the Best Experimental Short at the San Joaquin Film Festival. Also it will be screened at Open Eyes in Marburg [Germany] in july, in the Andalusian Center of Contemporary Arts in Sevilla [Spain] in august and at Best of Trickfilm Festival Stuttgart in Shanghai [China] in september.
I have been invited by Marco Mancuso from DigiCult to this year’s Dissonanze in Rome, Italy in may. He also organized a screening at the O’Artoteca gallery in Milan afterwards and a lecture I’ll give to the unsuspecting students at NABA.
As you can see I arrived at web 2.0 and now have a blog of sorts integrated (thanks to wordpress). Also, you can now comment on my posts, films, music, whatever. If I don’t like your comment though I’ll delete it. All my films are now embedded.
While working on ‘Energie!’ I developed my own method for making electrophotographies (or kirlian photographies as they are also called). I used a 30.000 volt transformer to expose photo paper with high voltage electricity discharges. Here are a few electrophotographies that I made. Some of them I used in the film. They were exhibited at the following galleries:
2006 Maschinenblut – V8 in Karlsruhe [Germany]
2007 Energie! – Kunstverein Friedrichstadt in Berlin [Germany]
2007 Kunst in Serie (group exhibition) – t27 in Berlin [Germany]
2008 Energie! – O’Artoteca in Milan [Italy]
2008 Erosion (group exhibition) – Klaipeda Exhibition Hall in Klaipeda [Lithuania]
2010 Collectif d’en Face (group exhibition) in Rouen [France]
2012 High Voltage – onder hoogspanning (group exhibition) in Heusden-Zolder [Belgium]
Die Maschine liebt dich auf ihre Art 
The machine loves you her way 
Pleasing and comforting electronic compositions. ‘Quién Sabe’ makes you want to sing along. ‘Disguise In Love With You’ seduces with a modulated smile. ‘Krachendes Holz’ almost succeeds in its secret wish to become solid matter. ‘Tesla Coil’ makes its point in a quiet and thoroughly subtle way. ‘Tokyo2’ slowly drills into your head to finally discharge its electric charm full force right into your brain.
