321 // MA-P / Moving Illustrations of Machines
I just remembered a great film that I saw quite a while ago, a rather old one from 2000. Watching it again I realised that this film must have had an impact on my work and also on my style – as it was the time when I started to study and workout my own creative skills. And as I am still admiring this great movie with all these machines working together in this dystopian black and white style I think it is important that it becomes part of this blog: Moving Illustrations of Machines by Jeremy Solterbeck.
A compostion of “hypernatural movement and the depiction of vibrancy and life” with the only characters as such being machines. There is a contextual connection to the topic of cloning. “Moving Illustrations of Machines wishes to reconsider what it means to be living. Has technology and cloning changed the definition of the word machine? Is the human machine open to revision by humanity itself? As our technology becomes unfathomably complex, will the human ovum become as eligible for alteration as any of our mechanical gadgets? This film doesn’t propose to answer these questions, only to present them for the viewer’s consideration as cloning and related scientific issues continue to surge to the forefront of our ethical and moral quandaries.”
