Festival opening act – IZLAND & jesusonecstasy (SLO)
20.08. / 20:00 h / Gallery Makina
IZLAND is a project focused on exploring the creation of abstract visual realities, based in experimenting with various analog techniques. It draws inspiration from chemical experiments, interactive artworks, experimental film and animation, the principles of cymatics and mechanical gadgets. Jesusonecstasy is using analog synthesizers and a digital drum machine he designed and built himself to create electronic music in real time.
The music based on improvisation is not limited to a single genre but emerges through a knowledge of the capabilities of the gear. The music moves from atmospheric sounds to break beats, passing through low tempo and IDM with an omnipresent electro feel.
You are here… elsewhere – Matthieu Tercieux (FRA)
20.08.– 22.08. / 21:00 h / Uspon Konzula Istranina
A monumental urban interactive map, a journey that begins under your feet, in your neighborhood, and takes you to the stars. The projections react to movements in real-time allowing the visitor to explore every corner of the image.
The contents of these animations are the result of creative workshops which included children (3 to 12 years old) who drew Pula as they perceive it. The workshops where organised in collaboration with Gradska knjižnica i čitaonica Pula, association Piccoli Terremoti and association Aboriginal.
Lum.e – Matthieu Tercieux (FRA)
20.– 22.08. / 21:00 h / Uspon Pavla Đakona
House walls are being transformed in a playground in which the participants project their colored shadows on the wall and create shapes with their bodies. The result is a big interactive art work. The space in front of the kinetic sensor becomes a place of socialization and play, and the space on the walls becomes its colorful reflection.
12 sati kasnije / 12 hours later – Davorin Marc (SLO)
20.08.– 22.08. / 21:00 h / Uspon Konzula Istranina
What happens when we film the event in the morning and then project it 12 hours later from the same point on the same area in the 1 to 1 scale? What do people, light and sound tell us? Are they the same, similiar or different than 12 hours before?
234th day of the year – A. Sinkauz, N. Sinkauz, I.M. Klif, M. Piškulić (CRO)
22.08. / 22:00 h / Gallery Sveta Srca
Day of the year is an experimental audio-visual project by the brothers Alen and Nenad Sinkauz, Ivan Marušić– Klif and Miroslav Piškulić, which explores the relation between live video act and sound. The audio material is a dislocated version of noise, drone, techno and industrial. The name of the performance is changed every time depending on the ordinal day of the year, thus pointing out the improvisational.

Cities often hide interesting stories that inhabit what is seemingly and superficially an empty space.

By participating in this installation you could find out about interesting stories from the “in/visible Pula”.
