Facing the Unknown
Running time: 13 minutes 59 seconds
As often in Yamamoto Takayuki’s practice our world in this video is reflected in the eyes of the child. As the wonders of the universe is explained in its increasingly intricate detail, flickers of wonder at its scale as well as frustration at its complexity register in the eyes of two small children. As a professor of physics explain the phenomena of black holes, much of what they felt they knew about the world becomes undone.

The Moonwalk Machine
Running time: 5 minutes 4 seconds
“The Moonwalk Machine – Selena’s Step” is a short film visualizing an amateur scientist Selena’s attempt to imitate her idol, a superhero Lunar Girl by constructing a high heel rover and launching it on the surface of the moon. To create Selena's rover, Sputniko! sought out NASA's Universities Space Research Association and Lunar Planetary Institute for an accurate prototype. Through a series of complex calculations, scientific breakthrough, and hands-on engineering our protagonist rewrites history to leave a very female imprint on our space legacy.

The Space Camp
Produced on the occasion of Tom Sachs' “Space Program: MARS 2012” at the Park Avenue Armory in New York, “Space Camp” is an athletic, dietary and psychological conditioning program, designed to prepare Tom Sachs' crew for the rigors of the Mars mission. Handmade but carefully studied and obsessive in detail, the crew recreates every aspect of a space program regime, the minutia of the costume and comradery of the mission.
About Director: Tom Sachs
American sculptor Tom Sachs often recreates culturally significant objects or event in inexpensive, non-industrial materials.
In a multimedia practice Singaporean artist Ho Tzu Nyen often juxtaposes historical facts and with performed rituals and absurd or humourous situation. In Newton, we are one hand floating in gravity-defying whiteness, whilst at the same time watching a seemingly significant white opus falling to hit our all-white protagonist in the head. In a Sisyphean circular narrative, normal laws of physics and time seem to have been dissolved, and action have little or no consequence.
About Director: Ho Tzu Nyen
Singaporean artist Ho Tzu Nyen represented Singapore in 54th Venice Biennale and has participated in Cannes Film Festival and Sundance as well as numerous media art festivals and international exhibitions.
Planet A & Planet Z
A first work in the Planet series, “Planet A” shows a worrisome, strange yet playful world composed only of salt crystal formations. The physical beauty and corrosive character of these crystals appear like an invading and dangerous force in a fragile ecosystem.
In Planet Z, the second in the Planet series, the artist creates a gigantic world out of oddly domestic protagonists: sprouts, mold and fungus. These tiny elements infest and colonise, in a dystopian vision of a rapidly changing world.
About Director: Seto Momoko
Through her video works, extensively presented at prominent film festivals around the world Japanese artist Momoko Seto invites us to undertake sensorial journeys through highly poetic and unusual worlds.
Towards the Possible Film
In a surreal encounter, two otherworldly figures meet the indigenous inhabitants of a rocky coast. The meeting of tribes is charged with tension and distrust, and narrated in hallucinatory, distorted bursts. Their indigenous dialects long forgotten and their temples in ruins, perhaps the inhabitants here have reason to be on guard, as the fragility of civilisations is explored as a science fiction narrative, with strong colonial undertones.
About Director: Shezad Dawood
London based artist Shezad Dawood creates multi-media works drawing inspiration from his Pakistani, Indian and British cultural heritage. His poetic practice across a variety of media is concerned with notions of place and language and translation.
“Black Rain” is made in collaboration with scientists and sourced from images collected by the twin satellite, solar mission, STEREO. Here we see the HI (Heliospheric Imager) visual data as it tracks interplanetary space for solar wind and CME's (coronal mass ejections) heading towards Earth. Using raw scientific satellite data which has not yet been cleaned and processed for public consumption, the work reminds us of the presence of the human observer who endeavors to extend our perceptions and knowledge through technological innovation.

A re-imagination of traditional the traditional myths of Mao Son, who is said to have come from Venus millions of years ago. During a new visit to contemporary Japan, the Defender Lord wants to reassemble the trinity of Love, Power and Sun to bring harmony and peace to the universe. In a fluid mix of genres, the film questions the role of outsiders and highlights the tension between tradition and new thinking.

With the help of musician collaborators, Makino Takashi creates unpredictable encounters.
Lunar Economic Zone
From a mid-autumn lunar celebration in 2028, this animation reflects a version of the future where China has mastered the extraction of ‘lunar minerals’ and has become a resource-rich and technologically advanced superpower. The film unfolds as a Mid-August Day Lunar Mineral Parade takes place in the newly-formed Lunar Economic Zone, an administrative agglomeration of Shenzhen and the Moon. In this not too distant future many of the hallmarks of our contemporary life remains, and the parade although grander and more urban that we could currently imagine still carries an uncanny resemblance to the world today.
