    Desire Management is a film by Noam Toran comprising five sequences in which objects are used as vehicles for dissident behaviour. In the film, the domestic space is defined as the last private frontier, a place where bespoke appliances provide unorthodox experiences for alienated people: An airline hostess with a unique relationship to turbulence, the owner of a mysterious box which men ritually visit to look inside, an elderly man who enjoys being vacuumed, a couple who engage in baseball driven fantasies, a man who is forced by his partner to cry into a strange device. Part of the NY MoMA and Frac Ile-de-France collections.

            In the hands of designer Wieki Somers and her partner Dylan van den Berg, ordinary objects become stimuli for a more poetic take on our daily lives. They explore the hidden qualities of objects that can evoke memories - and stir the imagination. Studio Wieki Somers won various prestigious prizes and their works are included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Centre Pompidou in Paris and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. One of Studio Wieki Somers'current projects is Frozen in Time. It's a series of products inspired by photographs of an ice-storm in the north-eastern Netherlands on March 2, 1987. For one day, the whole landscape was covered in a thick of layer ice. A giant still-life in which everything became connected - and the passing of time seemed to stop altogether. http://www.wiekisomers.com CREDITS Commissioning editor Submarine: Geert van de Wetering Producer: Olivia Sophie van Leeuwen Research Assistant: Liselot Francken Director: Mattijs Mollee Camera: Wiro Felix Sound: Eric Leek Editor/Colour Correction: Maurik de Ridder Music/Sound Design: Pastelle Music Produced by Submarine, Femke Wolting & Bruno Felix http://www.submarine.nl Commissioned by DutchDFA http://www.dutchdfa.com Like Dutch Profiles on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/dutchprofiles

              Object for Lonely Men is a film by Noam Toran which tells the story of a man so obsessed with Godard’s "Breathless" that he builds a tray full of objects which reflects the physical language of the film. The objects include a mannequin head which resembles Jean Seberg (the female lead), a gun, hat, telephone, Herald Tribune newspaper, sunglasses, ashtray, steering wheel, rear view mirror and a pack of Gitanes non-filtered cigarettes. The tray serves as an outlet for the man’s desires, allowing him to directly channel the influence of cinema on his fantasies into physical action. Part of the permanent collection of NY MoMA
