Animation Perspectives: Patrick Buhr_Aaron Jablonski

With hand-drawn lines, animated in 3D, Patrick Buhr strolls through the borderland between staging and real life. Aaron Jablonski expands reality with digital masks and reshapes landscapes through data manipulation. A perfect match for our dialogue series with films, talks and insights into their practice.

After the event, Patrick Buhr and Aaron Jablonski invite the audience to their virtual gallery on Mozilla Hubs, which was designed exclusively for DOK Leipzig: There, they can stroll and browse around themselves and get into conversation with the two artists. The link to the virtual gallery and help for strolling along will be available on the evening of the program.

The talks will be held in English.

Event: Thursday, 29 October 2020, 8 pm (CET)
Moderator: André Eckardt
Language: Englisch
Access: All welcome

Confusing swarm of echoes or spiky punk – immaterial masks, hovering between fashion and art, conceal as much as they reveal about their wearers.

Painting, virtual sculptures, technophile hybrids of reality and illusion – Aaron Jablonski has been creating mobile face filters for social media channels since 2018. Sometimes they form a confusing swarm of echoes around a head, sometimes they come as spiky digital punk. His immaterial masks, hovering between fashion and art, conceal as much as they reveal about their wearers.

During a ramble through the forest we see video colour fringes break through the canopy. Hallucinogenic data errors drag like scrapers across a discarded layer of paint.

During a ramble through the forest we see video colour fringes break through the shadows of the canopy. Rolls of thunder and birdsong spread as a deep red pixel moss carpet. Ambient sounds creep up from the distance to filter the visual world. Hallucinogenic data errors drag like scrapers across a discarded layer of paint. The forest becomes a cathedral for the eyes and ears.

The fascinating virtual sculptures of a deep scan are moulded and pulverized to electronic beats: waves of millions of luminescent coloured microbodies.

An infrared dot pattern scans body shapes to supply system information for fascinating volume images. The space casts are virtual sculptures, mouldable, with unstable aggregate states. DJ Dixon’s “Transmoderna” performance is pulverized to the beats of Mëhill’s track “Through Withdrawals”: waves of millions of luminescent coloured microbodies against a black infinity.

A camera flight around a free-standing rock gets stuck in the moving image. Data smears and artefacts accumulate like layers of sediment and create new formations.

Our hovering gaze circles a free-standing rock on a wide plain. The recording gets stuck. At ever shorter intervals the massive rock formation breaks out of the solidifying background until data smears and artefacts accumulate as fine digital sediment layers and congeal into new formations. The video signal interference acts like a primal force of geological history.

Something About Silence Patrick Buhr
Life instructions from nowhere: “Take a deep breath, say YEEES!” But the anonymous guru becomes a chattering flâneur through his own psychedelic universe of problems.

A voice from nowhere proclaims life instructions: “Take a deep breath, say YEEES! … and stop being boring!” But rules and authority gradually elude the anonymous instructor. He becomes a chattering, contradictory flâneur through the universe of his problem-fraught private affairs. Those therapy units have a really sneaky design.

The Train, the Forest Patrick Buhr
A pylon waves its tentacles. The gaze tries to bring order to the jumble of lines and sketches anew what can be assembled from the remnants of perception.

The gaze follows a line of trees and tries to visually order near and distant branches. A jumble of lines sketchily leaves behind what is and sketchily captures what can be assembled from the remnants of perception. Hand-drawn lines conquer the third dimension with digital crackling. A pylon waves its tentacles.

Celtic cult sites communicate effectively with the cosmos, the terrestrial darkness is churned by energy fields and sunrays. Even in one of his earliest works – a video clip for breakcore pioneer Venetian Snares – David OReilly dissects the myth of a homogenous CGI world, revealing the abrasions of a vulnerable digital DNA.

An Instagram user surface ripples, turns into a graceful feedback vortex and attempts to impress in virtual space. Its motif: the absence of a photographic object.

An Instagram user surface ripples, turns into a feedback vortex and attempts to impress in virtual space. Every segment is an aesthetically arranged repetition. We catch a brief glimpse of the alleged visual content: in a film studio, equipment and a white background are lurking for their photographic object. Absence is staged as a motif that feeds the vain social media channel.
