From installation work based upon Miyajima Tatsuo to 10 second animations about monsters being used as sex toys, from recurring meditations on violent death to babies being born from the arseholes of stressed office workers, The Flash Film Festival promises to be a technicolour daydream of toontastic proportions, using radical projection and programming techniques to deliriously delight your senses.
Curated by James Hollands and Montania Saah, based upon an idea by Orrin Hare.

AFTER MIYAJIMA (MUTATION SERIES) BY ROB DAVIS
After Miyajima (Mutation Series) is a series of art installations for display in spaces, either on screens or projected. Each work consists of one or more computers with installed software and accompanying displays. All images are generated live. As the displayed images evolve, some versions of the installation also generate sounds which are played in the space, with the pieces behaving like wind chimes in a gentle breeze.
