    Floating World Animation Festival 2010 presents: DMTV – We’ve dug even deeper into the vaults of psychedelic animation to curate a heroic dose of visionary video art for this year’s animation fest. For our fourth annual animation fest it was time to focus on what we liked best from previous shows and continue to seek out films that really embrace the infinite mysteries that resonate with us. The result is DMTV, a program that goes further into experimental realms of video art and abstract visuals. Rounding out the evening are two of my favorite local bands, Atole and Nice Nice who will perform with live visuals mixed by e*Rock and Yoshi Sodeoka. Highlights of this year’s program include: Travel, aka The Trip (1973) – Kihachiro Kawamoto studied puppet animation in Prague in 1963 before going on to create his own haunting puppet and cut-out animations drawing from his own Japanese heritage. Travel depicts the journey of a young girl into the Dali-esque landscape of her own psyche. Apeiron (1996) – Eurico Coelho depicts a modern technological labyrinth where society has surrendered to the cold lamps of their computer screens. The entirety of this ten minute film was animated on a Commodore Amiga 4000, giving the film a completely fresh aesthetic that has outlived the technology with which it was created. The Peace Tape (2008) – With a title hearkening back to the analog era, The Peace Tape is a frenetic remix of old and new "found" video. Culling his sources from thrift stores (countless straight-to-VHS childrens' programs), the Internet (a single YouTube clip featuring "dog in a dog costume"), and his own designs (flash animation of eyes and mouths, subliminal flickers of text), Ciocci concentrates hours of light entertainment into a dense, four-minute block. Saved from total sensory overload by the musical logic of Extreme Animals' "A Better Way," The Peace Tape is cryptic, hypnotic (and above all), empathetic. "Culture is out of control," Ciocci explains, "but it is ok." Whose Toes (2009) – Barry Doupé’s films are as surreal as any Lynch or Jodorowsky movie, but with an added level of weirdness because they are rendered with Sims-like polygon graphics. Showcasing the late Princess Diana and JFK as its main characters, we are invited to return to past events that have caused discomfort, and to re-imagine a misstep in time. The Unclothed Man in the 35th Century A.D (2009) – This original animated web series is based on graphic novelist and comic book artist Dash Shaw's latest book of the same title. Shaw's animation has been widely praised for its eclectic style, innovative design and emotional depth.

                    • "Floating World" by Peter D. Gerakaris

                      This short film by Peter D. Gerakaris takes viewers on a microcosmic odyssey through his organically detailed "Floating World Accordion Book" (http://www.accordionbook.com). Based upon a hand-made, hand-drawn, & hand-painted bi-fold book, Gerakaris seeks to explore new perspectives on his analog cosmology by melding it with the digital, four-dimensional "space-time continuum" of video. The organic abstractions and minutia of the bi-fold accordion books literally and metaphorically unfold in a non-linear format over time, originally conjured from travel, dreams, unconscious drawing, & shadow forms of the botanical world. These elements coalesce into a contemporary, yet personalized riff on "Ukiyo-e" -- a floating world where the nocturnal & diurnal blur. In dialogue with many of the "visual loops" from his artwork, Gerakaris also composed and recorded an original musical "loop" as soundtrack for this fantastic voyage. The video will be projected in a large, antique movie theater June 20 - 25th, 2013 for the Mykonos Biennial in Greece, curated by Lydia Venieri. More info at: http://www.petergerakaris.com/
