The Armadillo and Other Stories

@ VOL 3 ON JUN 20, 2014

Bettina Hutschek's artistic practice is set on multi-disciplinary research and thus generates various forms: essay films, book works or performances. Always based on observations from reality and on narrative practices, she juxtaposes layers of fiction and reality in order to create “transitory spaces” - these transits procreate mental spaces and mythological narrations. Put shortly: she tells stories.

Time and Interaction

@ VOL 3 ON JUN 20, 2014

Video game maker, critic, and professor Pippin Barr speaks on the interactive medium of games, and how the concept of time is exhibited within the medium. From games where you must complete a number frenetic tasks lest your character die, to those where your character is sentenced to 100 real-life years in prison (i.e. we will never live to see what happens at the end of his sentence), Pippin demonstrates the power interactivity can have over our thoughts on time.

Building a Picture

@ VOL 1 ON OCT 24, 2013

As a child, Aiden Celeste had always wanted to be an architect, but his life drove him to the field of research art. He discusses the process, theory, and execution of what he calls "building a picture" -- through the oculus of a camera obscura, he finds himself in a unique and wonderful otherworld. The results of his exploits are conjoined and overlapped to form something greater than a singular piece.
