Streaming Festival and Geborgen Kamers present:
15 - 17 April 2009
Fragments brings together video work that in some way address the idea of fragmentation, whether through visual technique or concept. Several films in this selection focus on the object of the photograph -a reminiscent of a fraction of time and memory. Others are based on the structural elements of film making such as the close up shot and abstraction as the basis.
This selection is the curator's response the truly eclectic collection of works from three editions of Streaming Festival database. Therefore, the concept of Fragments becomes an ambiguous expression in this context simultaneously symbolising a fragment of the Streaming Festival collection as well a metaphor for fragmentation of images and ideas.
Streaming Festival is an online platform for artists and filmmakers. Its aim is to create an international showcase of work in high quality made possible by using streaming servers rather than download. The festival takes part once a year, and the 4th edition will be broadcasted from 20 to 30 November 2009.
