7Colors for the scents

Created as a scented flipbook.

CITRUS⁴

For the debut screening of this one, the exhibition space was perfumed and citrus sweets were given to the visitors. It’s a pity we can’t experience the olfactory elements of these creations, but maybe you are able to get some synesthetic kicks from the animation!

The Incredible Shadoks

27 Jun

The Shadoks are kind of outer-space bird-like creatures designed and created by the French experimental animator Jacques Rouxel in the late sixties, in the spirit of newspapers comic strips like “Peanuts”. The Shadoks divided the French nation as much as the political debate about the future of democracy.
The Shadoks live on the shadok planet where everything is going wrong, and their efforts to escape to Earth are constantly foiled by rivals from another planet.
shadok cover These silly creatures with their own brand of logic first appeared on TV in 1968 and quickly became a cult. Their main mission was educative: criticism of the French society with absurd humor. The animated cartoon, revoiced by Kenneth Robinson (who replaced the French comedian Claude Piéplu), intrigued many a British child! Actually, the Shadoks used rules like:
* The more you fail, the more you have a chance that it will work in the end.
* Better to pump even if nothing happens than to risk something worse happening by not pumping.
* If you have 999 chances in 1000 that the thing will fail, so hurry to do the 999 first tests, because the 1000th will probably be the right one.
* Why do simple when one can do complicated?
* In order for there to be the fewest discontent, one only has to always hit on the same ones…
* If there is no solution, it’s because there is no problem.

Gandahar

13 Jun

Gandahar (René Laloux), is a French animated science fiction and fantasy film released in 1988 in the U.S. It is based on Jean-Pierre Andrevon’s novel Les Hommes-machines contre Gandahar (The Machine-Men versus Gandahar).

The peaceful people of Gandahar are suddenly attacked by an army of automatons known as the Men of Metal, who march through the villages and petrify their victims with lasers. The resulting statues are then collected and transferred to their base. At the capital city of Jasper, the Council of Women orders Sylvain to investigate. On his journey, he encounters the Deformed, a race of mutant beings who were accidentally created via genetic experimentation by Gandahar’s scientists. Despite their resentment, they are also threatened by the Men of Metal and offer to help Sylvain.

A European DVD release of Gandahar, in French with English subtitles, was released in October 2007[2] by Eureka!’s Masters of Cinema label.
