SPECIAL  JURY AWARD @ STTP JANUARY 2017 AWARDS

Director: Acci Baba

Country: Germany

Duration: 02:25

Sinopsis: An experimental film to explore behaviors of an artificial system reaching the point of saturation. Central to the work is the aesthetic combination of geometry and life, expressed by collinear structure and living ants. The sugar water falls from the sky, artificially creating ecosystem for ants to survive. Ants walk along the infinite path, leaving pheromones for the others to follow. Soon one of the ant chose to escape from the saturated system, realizing they have been walking on a infinite path. The others followed and continued walking in to the void as they form an another circular loop. Through the perspective of micro organism, the artwork finds the relation between the viewers to reflect the formula emerging from the hyper reality.
