The exhibition gathers artworks that explore the respective possibilities of analog and digital moving images. The works range from Expanded Cinema to analog and digital experimental films to virtual reality installations.
Digital image technologies open up entirely new artistic possibilities. Their emergence, in turn, also affects the access to analog techniques of image production. The speed, accessibility, and omnipresence of digital images allow us to experience the mechanical precision of analog projectors, the tangible quality of the filmstrip, and the exposure and development process in a different light, as it were.
The exhibition presents artworks that idiosyncratically explore the technological and mechanical foundations of their respective media. By juxtaposition and contrast, analog and digital technologies are presented as what they are: two genuinely different ways of recording, processing, and reproducing moving images, each with its own specific set of aesthetic, material, and conceptual possibilities.
