A circular looping animation projection installation.
“There is an underlying unchanging sync at the center of everything.
A sync that was decided at the beginning of everything, and that rules everything.
Everything follows from that… all time, all physics, all life, all animation.”
Sync premiered on 25 August 2010 as part of ‘Time, What Makes Us Tick?’, an installation/exhibition at Noorderzon Performing Arts Festival in Groningen, Holland.
‘Time, What Makes Us Tick?’ is a collaboration by artists Max Hattler and Nelleke Koop and scientists Prof. Dr. Eric Bergshoeff and Prof. Dr. Martha Merrow, conceptualised by Nathalie Beekman, produced by Pavlov E-Lab (Groningen, Holland) as part of their ‘Open Mind’ series of sci-art collaborations, and supported by the Open Workshop department of The Animation Workshop (Viborg, Denmark). Music by Dennis van Tilburg. Animation by Andreas Thomsen.
When conflict becomes a spectacle, the lines between destruction and entertainment get blurred…
