A trailer containing clips of the new video-installation by the Critical Mass foundation, (in translation) called, "LAUNCH: Dialogue in the Neighborhood".
The video-installation contains four fictional short films based on real-life themes and issues shared with us by residents of a Utrecht neighborhood.
In the actual installation these films can be watched individually and contain several so-called "freeze moments" where the film will pause and icons will appear over the characters onscreen. Clicking on these icons you can find out the thoughts and feelings of these characters at that moment.
Through these freeze-moments it becomes possible to see the layers of thoughts and emotion which exist beneath the outward-visisble actions and communication.
The installation will premiere at the end february 2011 and will be used in several projects by the Critical Mass foundation (criticalmass.nu)
Filmed with the Panasonic 151
