Maribor, Upravna enota Maribor, 2000

StopTrik International Film Festival is dedicated to stop motion techniques of hand-made, spatial animation as puppet film, claymation, object or photography manipulation, animation of loose materials (such as salt, sand etc), pixilation, traditional cut-out and many more. The list of sub-genres could be complemented with such exceptional techniques as animation of lights, fire, yarns, threads. Artists' imagination is limitless and so we can be neither orthodox nor strict while defining the term "stop motion". The ultimate goal of this unique annual gathering is to admire and celebrate artistry of hand-made, spatial animation together with all the other drifters of the surreal, absurd or merry highways who are ready to pursue frame by frame illusion.

16mm found footage digitalized to SD video / 9’40 / 2004


The main idea of this video essay is to reinterpret the process of working with found film footage and the interpretative possibilities. The footage originates from former socialist Czechoslovakia and the artist here attempts to depict, by revealing the creative process, how this epoch may be read. Non-traditional instruments are used here, such as, for instance, randomness. Its impact on the form of the subsequent description of socialism highlights the thought processes and their certain salience as a template.
