Entwicklung im abgegrenzten Raum (Development in a delimited space), 2001

1-channel video, Flash animation transferred on DV-pal, 0:55

Concept: Christian Niccoli
Animation: Petja Dimitrova

A computer animation composed by nine points framed within a rectangle. These points together
represent a close group of young people such as the youth of a small town or a circle of friends,
translated here in a delineated context (a rectangle). Aesthetically inspired by video games of the
1980s, the development of the nine points reflects, as if it were a game, the behaviour and
decisions of each member in choosing a partner in a delineated space. The animation is a reflection
on love: is love determinate by a self-motivated process? Can it also be found, if "chosen", in front
of the own eyes?
