Six Seconds Around Me - Landscape of Sound and Moving Images
FaticArt Project Philosophy: Open the window and film my world: feelings, set in action, reflections, visions, reactions, all this in the lapse of time of seconds. Landscape of images and sounds that is around me. The project call was for artists from all the world. "It is necessary to send material of the duration from 1 to 6 seconds (from the title of the event) of images/photo in sequence (moving images), with ambient sound."

Loose Minds in a Box was a collaborative work that explores the basic concept of the "box". The box is a metaphor for the physical, social, political or psychological constraints that we and/or others place upon us. The box also represents a sense of place in the realm of the virtual as well as in our sub-conscience. With the aid of performance artists, electro-acoustic musicians/composers, virtual reality and motion capture artists/technologists and others. We looked at many of the numerous representations the "box" encompasses.
