ckollision – human plays machine plays human plays machine

To what extent does an increased focus on digital media influence the perception of my own reality? How do we filter playfully information and what is the impact of immersion on my own psyche?

Students of the School of Art and Design Kassel together with computer scientists of the University of Kassel present answers to these questions. By invitation of the 34 th Kasseler Dokumentarfilm- und Videofest they organise an exhibition where video games, interactive installations and VR experiments are presented in an artistic context.

VR-ZOETROP / Interactive Virtual Reality Experience / Developer: Filip Dippel, Max Holicki, Petra Stipetic Programmer: Peter Müller

The hand that draws explores materials on a haptic level while it is directly linked to the technological interface of the future, where computer games, installation works, and virtually real experiments establish themselves as forms of creative expression. The interplay of systematic research and inventive curiosity reflects autonomous approaches of working with computers and points indirectly to the key visual of the current Dokfest.

The impulse for the organisation and selection of this year’s exhibition contributions from Kassel was given by the team of the animation class, where animation is taught as a form of artistic expression in the department of visual communication. What helps is the physical and organisational proximity to visual arts, graphic design, new media and film departments as part of the School of Art and Design Kassel.

From this base, paths open up to the wide variety of modern animation, from digital production to experimental techniques, to interactive narrative forms and transmedia dissemination.

About Sticky Frames

Images that stick to one another, that diverge and converge. Images that stick to your memory like a piece of gum to your shoe.
But “sticky” means more than that: Stickiness can be tough and relentless, persevering and enduring. These adjectives describe the young animation artists of this collective. There are seven of them: Ines Christine Geißer, Kirsten Carina Geißer, Evgenia Gostrer, Theresa Grysczok, Florian Maubach, Lina Walde and Alma W.Bär.

The Sticky Frames artists affect Kassel, as a meeting point in the middle of Germany and a birthplace to ideas that reflect, recreate and touch their environment. The festival invitations and awards the artists received are many. Also the list of cities and countries, they went to, to expand their network and collect new stories, that should be told.

In their work they throw light and colors on situations that might seem trivial at first glance, but which will change your perspective about them – like the relation between a cat and a garbageman or the search for happiness out of the perspective of horses.

Wherever the Sticky Frames tour of short films stops, something starts moving, something gets off the ground. But the movement of their audiences is an interior one: They’ll be glued to their chairs.

About Palm Springs International Shortfest

The Palm Springs International ShortFest — now in its 23rd year — is the largest short film event in North America

A highly competitive festival, ShortFest receives 4,200± submissions from over 100 countries around the globe. Approximately 325 shorts are selected and screened in 90-minute themed programs, with many of the remaining titles available for viewing our Film Market. An Oscar® and BAFTA®-qualifying festival, ShortFest has presented more than 100 shorts that have gone on to receive Oscar® nominations and/or awards.

The festival also includes the ShortFest Forum, a series of panels, master classes and roundtable discussions designed to provide emerging filmmakers with both the knowledge and the networking opportunities to further their careers in the film industry.

With hundreds of filmmakers and industry professionals in attendance and an audience of 22,000 avid filmgoers, ShortFest is defined by a decidedly casual atmosphere and a taste for the unconventional. It’s not what you might expect to find in Palm Springs in June…

REVIEW: Galleriefest 2017

Also this year, the popular gallery party took place in the Südstadt of Kassel. The galleries presented a varied program of exhibitions and concerts, entry was free. And the Trickfilmklasse was part of it.

Who hadn’t seen the program of Trickreich 17, or just wanted to watch his or her favorite films again, could have done this at the weekend of May 19th – 21st 2017.

The location of the Trickfilmklasse exhibition wasn’t an ordinary one – in the studio of Wasserbetten (waterbeds) at station Weinberg. The audience had the opportunity to lounge on very pillowy mattresses and to enjoy the films in a relaxed atmosphere with candle lights.

The Trickfilmklasse says thank you to the owners Peter and Irina Ritter, for the opportunity to present their films in this special way and for the nice and energetic support. We like to be there next year too!

REVIEW: ITFS and FMX 2017

Stuttgart: Beim Internationalen Trickfilmfestival in Stuttgart (ITFS) war auch die Trickfilmklasse vertreten…

…und präsentierte in der dortigen GAMEZONE verschiedenste Spiele und künstlerische Installationen.

»Übungen in Neugierde« war der Titel der Ausstellung, die für den Betrachter zu einer Entdeckertour wurde.

Eine Highlight war die Präsentation dreier brandneuer VR-Projekte: Bei »Where is Joe« kann in die Gestalt eines Riesen geschlüpft, und eine virtuelle Stadt erkundet werden.

»Zoetrop« macht es möglich, mittels virtueller Farbe im 3D-Raum zu zeichnen und eigene Animationen zu erstellen und »das Labor« verbindet visuelle Wahrnehmung mit haptischer Erfahrung und bietet ein spannendes Tasterlebnis mit Überraschungseffekt.


Trickfilme von Studierenden wurden auf der Werkschau im Kino präsentiert.

Parallel zum ITFS fand zudem vom 1. – 5. Mai die FMX, Conference on Animation, Effects, Games und Transmedia unter dem Motto »Beyond the Screen« statt. Die Trickfilmklasse präsentierte sich und ihren Studiengang an einem von den Studierenden designten Stand.

About Galeriefest at the Südstadt of Kassel

Bereits zum fünften Mal verwandelt sich die Frankfurter Straße während des Galeriefests zur Kunst- und Kulturmeile. Türen und Tore öffnen sich und führen zu unkonventionellen Ausstellungsplätzen und zu den bereits bestehenden Kunst- und Kulturorten, die den Besuchern neue, interessante, vielleicht auch kontroverse Ein- und Ausblicke auf zeitgenössische künstlerische Positionen bieten.
