Making Taste goes deep into our list of works that have escaped the confinement of our curatorial ideas but have stood out overtime. The videos in the program vary in content and create a spattering of works that defy our desire to shuffle them into a certain context.

Title: FEST

Statement: “Fest” is a tribute to Youtube culture. Similar to the protagonists in fail compilations, characters in “Fest” are dealing with unexpected results, extreme situations and chaos. Freedom and spontaneity are common elements and are picked up within the animation. The technique is a combination of puppeteering and dynamic computer simulation and varies between physically accurate and broken. Like the fail heroes on Youtube, the animator is never fully in control. Animating like this feels closer to real-life filmmaking: the simulation results are unpredictable and personal. Thus, the focus shifts from outcome to process. The animator is left with the challenge to find the right balance between control and chaos.

Title: Doorcuts

Statement: Doors, gateways, thresholds, and openings of any sort hold a mystery behind them though highly predictable and standard. In stories beyond film and literature there has always been a history of connecting a fantastic adventure into a new universe, alternate era, metaphorical space or memory by entering a door. In this work, Zak Tatham has focused on linking many of those memories together to create a possibly endless series of mediating connections. The experience develops in collaboration with the traveler (Jesi Jordan) who leads us through the Doorcuts.
