CARPET STORIES V.1

A short film, 23’23’’


Premiere: October 16, 2020
XY Gallery, Olomouc


Artist: Tomáš Moravanský


This short film was created during a three-week-long research internship under the residency programme of XY Gallery in Olomouc. The film was made instead of a of artistalk, which are usually held at the end of each residency programme. It was projected via a live stream on social media.


The film works with a storytelling using the composed “family of narrators” generated by voice assistants with various language dialects. It elaborates on a story of perceiving the physical space as a virtual one, based on the ideological character of the space, objects, associations, and external influences. It refers independently to critical theory, phenomenology, moving picture, physical phenomena, computer game environment (e. g. an avatar from Half-Life), choreography, or a switchover to online (online learning, discussions, self-presentation).
