But her eyes said that gunshot knew he had a creation, and that was why parrot was wise of bulk

Watch trailer

‘But her eyes said that gunshot knew he had a creation, and that was why parrot was wise of bulk’ is selected by Jens Maier-Rothe and is inspired by the wondrous world of spam poetry, automated emails from the chicks with dicks on how we make that extra mega buck from home, ditzy television shows and videos from the local home depot store, brainy quotes and hairy proverbs in our daily mail – in short, all the stuffy decor that clutters our brains and follows us everywhere because it’s deep and sublime, and we know it. Separating wolds from the bushy filigree was a fragmentary orange of ice. Anyone can win the heart of audiences by putting on just the right shades of rosy rails.

Deep Blue

Deep Blue brings the tales of water. We have explored only 5% of the world’s oceans. The undiscovered majority of the ocean has been part of heroic stories; it is a sailors grave and a vikings funeral. What we know about the deep blue and what we use of it can be compared to how we use the Internet, just the tip of the iceberg.
Arnar Ásgeirsson selected One Minutes with an apocalyptic or post-apocalyptic feel to them, almost science fiction, referring to his surroundings in Iceland that, according to Ásgeirsson, often feels like a sci-fi film.

How To

‘How To’ deals with convenient tips. It is a compilation of short films that teach us something within One Minute. What do you do, for instance, if you have to tie your shoes and have only one hand free? Another film shows a variety of ways to separate an egg yolk: not all of them are very practical. One of the films was made by Hans Aarsman himself. He had an uncle Loek, one of those characters found in every family, who told unforgettable stories. Aarsman’s uncle taught him how to wash his hands in a jiffy when they’re covered in black grease: first rub them with olive oil, then with soap and only after that, rinse them under the faucet.

How To

Twenty-three One Minute films
curated by Hans Aarsman

‘How To’ deals with convenient tips. It is a compilation of short films that teach us something within One Minute. What do you do, for instance, if you have to tie your shoes and have only one hand free? Another film shows a variety of ways to separate an egg yolk: not all of them are very practical. One of the films was made by Hans Aarsman himself. He had an uncle Loek, one of those characters found in every family, who told unforgettable stories. Aarsman’s uncle taught him how to wash his hands in a jiffy when they’re covered in black grease: first rub them with olive oil, then with soap and only after that, rinse them under the faucet.

Thirty One Minute films
curated by Lorna Mills

‘Ways of Something’ is a contemporary remake of an episode from John Berger’s BBC documentary, ‘Ways of Seeing’ (1972), compiled by Lorna Mills. The thirty-minute video consists of one-minute videos by thirty web-based artists who commonly work with 3D rendering, gifs, film remix, webcam performances, and websites to describe the cacophonous conditions of artmaking after the internet. It is, in effect, art about art about television about the internet.
