Transformation Scenario
Vidéo | 4k | couleur | 20:0 | Allemagne | 2018

In the background of blockbuster films, algorithms have been employed to replace extras in post-production. Since years we are used to scenes in which masses of automated characters fill the screen, animated by algorithms that let them interact, similar to computer games and agents in computational sociology. Such artificial masses are stepping in the foreground. Simulating life began in the movies and computer games, but is influencing many fields today. In architecture, city planning and traffic navigation as well as in predictions of markets and trade, virtual scenarios influence society and change the way we live. Transformation Scenario (2018) by Clemens von Wedemeyer creates a speculative narration on the impact of emulated group behaviour in society. It follows an idea that could be inspired by Jean Luc Godards film Le Gai Savoir: “To find the solution to a problem, be it a chemical or political problem, one has to dissolve it: dissolve hydrogen, dissolve the parliament. Therefore we will now dissolve images and sounds.“ The film is part of a long term project by the artist making reference to the work Mass and Power (1960) by Elias Canetti, shifting the view on imageries of society, crowd control and potentials of masses today. This is especially relevant in times of populism, when numbers are used to construct power, and demonstrations and mass events form moments of resistance.

Une gare dans la brume; des rails qui se perdent dans la blancheur. Un homme qui attend. Entre les nappes de brouillard, un renard, le nez au vent. Mugissements, vacillements, puis le silence. Et toujours la brume. Des images de la nature se mêlent à des rencontres fugitives, des hommes qui habitent leurs propres mondes: un astronome, un musicien, un éleveur de chevaux. Tous sont animés d’une soif secrète de contacts, de liens et aspirent à un regard ouvert sur le monde. Loin des explications, le film restitue un grondement intérieur.

An Act Of Affection
Documentaire | mp4 | couleur | 16:0 | Viet nam | Portugal | 2020

While making a portrait of a single gay man in Lisbon, a filmmaker offers his character a little gift from the bottom of his heart. Not only capturing beautiful interactions between two individuals through a first-person perspective camera, this is also a film on the act of filming.

The film won him “Purin Award for The Most Promising Filmmaker from South East Asia”. He has since then completed a series of shorts on memory, time and internal decolonization. His works have been shown at Locarno, Rotterdam, Tampere, Singapore among other film festivals. At present, Viet is finishing DOC NOMADS, his master program of documentary film directing across three different cities of Europe – Lisbon (Portugal), Budapest (Hungary) and Brussels (Belgium).

A young woman interacts with her own cyborg self. Freed from flesh and thoughts in cyberspace, the digital body extends the movements and expressions of her organic body. In this way, the young woman escapes earthly conventions around the female body.
