More Matter

Trailer of the Film "MORE MATTER"

How we experience the world around us depends significantly on images. They shape our perception of the world to a great extent. This aspect is particularly interesting when it comes to the representation of all those phenomena that is invisible to the naked eye, for example, due to their small size, high distance or spectral nature. What do visualizations refer to when they have no visual origin, when technologies produce them? More Matter builds on this problematic of referencelessness and the artificiality of data images, leading the viewer into a world of associations of their own. The film shows an animation build from originally photographic material. It has been transferred from 2D back into 3D. Data emerges in places where there was none, and bizarre edges appear where the information density of the photographs cease.
