Siphon 虹吸 Experimental film Special Screening



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)
