"This performance creates animated projections with paper cutouts, day-glow erasers, candy-canes and glow sticks, haling from Verbiesens rebellious cartoon world with spastic, abstract animations."

 
  XY-Mechanix  
 

A perpetual motion machine of shape, color, and perspective. In this mesmerizing stop-motion performance by artist Marieke Verbiesen, space is collapsed and turned ambiguous, revealing the true nature of dimensionality for what it is: pure visual illusion. Inspired by early experimental animation filmmakers like Oskar Fischinger and Slavko Vorkapich, Verbiesen blurs the boundary between the avant-garde spirit of yesteryear with the technological boundlessness of today in this striking ode to physical filmmaking.

  XY-Mechanix is overall a tribute to Analogue Futurism. A term coined by german filmmaker Max Hattler, as a new emerging genre which aims to create animated films 100% digital-effects free.
