Sandy Claes and Daan Wampers are two media artists that explore the boundaries of animated film. Their latest project ‘Exploded Film’, offers an exploded view on (animated) film. This installation consists of a rollercoaster shaped track that represents the typical story plot of a movie. A camera follows this track up and down, producing a film that is simultaneously projected in the installation set up. Well-chosen key moments of the story plot are placed on the track, and when the camera passes them, short film sequences are injected into the projected film. As such, the visitors are also part of the projected reality.
In their talk, they will unveil their working process; the ups and downs of building a rollercoaster installation.
