Taro Yasuno “MUSICINEMA No.9”

The works using internet and letters such as “Nico Nico Douga” and “Moving-Letter-Coordinate Painting No. 7 of 29 Letters by 29 Lines” by Hideki Nakazawa are screened on the wall. Taro Yasuno presented “MUSICINEMA No.9” as a work of movie for music, not music for movie. Yasuno’s MUSICINEMA was rather like “tweets” than music, which I thought the piece was created in a contemporary style.

Kazuhiko Hachiya “Seeking is believing”

Speaking of tweets, Kazuhiko Hachiya utilized Twitter as a part of his work “Seeking is believing”, which is an implementation of showcasing text-based information delivered by Twitter in real time.

The festival also organized a film contest, CREAM Competition, which received 922 entries form 42 countries that included a variety of works such as movies, animations, documentary, experimental movies, film performances and installations.

Shunsuke Matsushima “VOICE-PORTRAIT ~self-introduction~”

The CREAM Prize was given to Shunsuke Matsushima’s “VOICE-PORTRAIT ~self-introduction~“, a work combined with the artist own replicated self-portrait film and voice of someone’s self-introduction which can be found on the internet, as it aims to spread as many users as possible by taking an advantage of the reblog function on Tumblr.

At the theater space, you can enjoy screening of DOTMOV Festival 2009 almost everyday during November. Check the screening schedule before visiting to see it.
