Kabuki Geisha

Director: Sylvia Toy St. Louis and Michael Lewis.

This video performance portrait is based on a poem about an elderly woman whom I frequently saw on Montgomery Street in San Francisco on the way to dayjob for several years. She moves like only old dancers move in spite of her obvious mental disturbances, i.e., paranoia, mumbling to herself etc. The grace of that well trained body carries her quite magically through the crowds of workers of whom she seems so afraid. Art seems to be in her blood stream, in every single cell of her body and happening all the time even though she's not in a pracice room or on stage due to sheer muscle memory of making art.

Bio:Fiction Science, Art and Filmfestival, Vienna

The 1st Bio:Fiction Science, Art & Filmfestival aims at attracting public awareness to synthetic biology and its ramifications for our daily life in the future.

 

Synthetic biology is the design and construction of new biological systems not found in nature. Synthetic biology aims at creating new forms of life for practical purposes. By applying engineering principles to biology scientists will be able to design life forms much different from breeding or traditional genetic engineering.

 

We want to encourage filmmakers to share their cinematic visions of a present or future society shaped by synthetic biology. What is your view on a world living with synthetic life forms? Your approach is up to you - the filmmaker, scientists or artist - the entries can be on science, fiction, or science fiction. We welcome regular short film, animation or documentary film. The main criteria is that synthetic biology has to be reflected somehow in the work, but how you do it is up to you.

 

Prizes will be awarded in the following categories:

 

Bio:Fiction Award – Short Fiction

Bio:Fiction Award – Documentary Film

Bio:Fiction Award - Animation

Online-Audience Award

Special Award of the Jury

(the prize money in each category will be announced soon)

 

On http://www.bio-fiction.com you will find more useful and inspiring information on synthetic biology, the entry form and the regulations of the filmfestival.

The nominated films will be presented in public at the festival event in Vienna, Austria, in May 2011. Finally, a Bio:Fiction Award ceremony will build the highlight of the festival.

 

The deadline for film entries is  the 15th of July 2010

There is no entry fee for submitting films.

Best wishes,

the Bio:Fiction team

Stop-Watch

Director: James Shilton.
Cites with Eyes, No steps untraced, Safety or Surveillance. Is the use of CCTV within the public realm, for our safety or control by the state? The 60 people used to produce the film were asked to count to a minute in their heads while sitting in front of the camera. This worked as an experiment on peoples perception of time. The morphing effect was used to notion towards the need for people to protect their identity.
