Siphon 虹吸 Experimental film Special Screening


“虹吸”现象是一种天然的力量抗衡,三台各有显像问题的曲面屏和一部高清数字投影构成独一无二的非完美观看容器,将反常的观影体验桥接到观影者既熟悉又陌生的装置之中,光影在这里扭曲缠绕为莫测的感官隧道,恍如梦境般重回模拟信号年代。这是两种影像展示方式——展览和放映的混淆和博弈,SIPHON既包含了空间感,也有严谨的时间编排顺序。在科学技术飞速发展、影像语言变化万千的当今,我们有必要保持一种反思的态度,同时理解介质带来的时空变化在艺术呈现中的重要性。

在BISFF2022,由于实体展览与防疫政策的冲突,我们改为大屏幕放映的形式,但仍然会保留这个原始的名字和思路。(丁大卫)


Siphon phenomenon is a kind of natural countervailing force. Three sets of curve screen with displaying problems and an HD digital projector constitute a unique and imperfect image container which bridges viewer's abnormal watching experience to their familiar but not recognized device. Through Siphon, light and shadow are twisted as an unpredictable sensory tunnel, and viewers will feel like traveling back to the analog signal age in a dream. This is a combination of two video presentation mode—Installation exhibition and live screening, and it contains not only a sense of space but also a choreography of time.Nowadays, with the rapid development of science and technology, image language changes a lot. Siphon makes people aware of the attitude of reflection, at the same time, understands the importance of spatial and temporal variations presented by the medium in the art. BISFF2019 will show 13 experimental works from around the world in the Siphon presentations.

In BISFF2022, due to the conflict between the physical exhibition and the epidemic prevention policy, we changed to the form of big-screen screening, but we will still retain the original curatorship title and ideas.(Dawei DING)
