Oporovak proposes a methodology for what it calls ‘information recovery and the solving of â integrity problems. Taking its inspiration from data recovery solutions and the language of achieving complete visibility via forms of HD technology and big data the film is part alternative software training video and part the voice of a subversive hybrid machine. It takes the intent of information restoration into a new context with its apparent ability to manipulate all sorts of digital and non-digital materials via its sentient interface and performative actions which apparently can operate at molecular level. The film utilises the voice of an unreliable narrator who acts to draw the viewer in and raise their awareness of inbuilt human desires for clarity and visibility and the desire to develop new forms of technology that can manipulate all sorts of digital and physical materials. The final section of the film looks towards a `sensing mechanism` that has the functionality to manipulate and alter any type of visual material at its source and the capability of connecting with and manipulating the subconscious of its viewers.

Charlie Tweed is an artist and academic based in Bristol, UK. He has a PhD in art practice (Kingston University) and an MFA in art practice (Goldsmiths College). His video, text and performance based works interrogate the affective qualities of digital technologies and their use in the control and management of populations and environments. He employ strategies of re-appropriation and speculative fiction, often taking on personas of anonymous collectives and hybrid machines, to outline subversive plans for enhancing and escaping control mechanisms and renegotiating relations between human and non human.

Overlook
Animation | hdcam | couleur | 5:27 | Finlande | 2017

Impossible architecture, an ancient burial ground and a lure for psychotic janitors were the building blocks of Overlook Hotel in Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. In this story vignette, chaos animators Pink Twins add zero gravity and a rupture in space-time continuum to the mix and serve a taster of subtle cosmic horror.

A soundtrack of interviews with the gymnasts accompanies images of them training and of empty gymnasiums. Archive film footage starting from 1970s and clips from a feature fiction film shot in the same locations reveal not only a continuity in picturing this sport, but also the structures of recording it.

The video "I feel blue, they sense rose" questions the process of seeing by deconstructing the medical gaze. How does science remind us of women`s bodies? How can the appropriation of the female body be documented through medicine and its history? The artist confronted herself with knowledge by working with historical artifacts from the Medical Collection at the University of Zurich. This collaboration gave her the opportunity to explore history on a subjective and interactive level.

Paula Tyliszczak (*1986) grew up in France and Poland and has a background in the Arts and in the Humanities. After completing her Bachelor`s Degree in International Relations at the University of Warsaw, she moved to Switzerland and studied Fine Arts at the Zurich University of the Arts. She later followed a Master`s degree in Contemporary Arts Practice at the Bern University of the Arts. As an interdisciplinary artist, Paula Tyliszczak mainly works with video, sound and language. Guided by her interest in the body as a social construct, she develops works at the interface between art and science, as well as between subjectivity and objectivity.
