About the films
Artist Karina Sletten (1993, Bergen) has in recent years explored a term that she calls ruin constructions which refers to the physical and social constructions that characterize urban space.
In this work Sletten has juxtaposed several interviews with some of the city's construction projects at the time. Abandoned houses, cranes and gravel appear in the background of conversations with social geographer Alf Jørgen Schnell, landscape theorist Janike Kampevold Larsen and visual artist Lars Sandås. Who produces landscapes, how it affects people and who is most affected are some of the questions presented in this work.
Fluid Interference (2022) is a new piece for electronics and video created with old video synths and a Buchla Music Easel. The work is about systemic violence against transgender people in Norway.
Aron Dahl (f. 1989) is a composer, synth nerd, saxophonist and singer based in Oslo and Los Angeles. His work is a genre defying mix of auto fiction and documentary, ambient, chamber music, sentimental love songs, field recordings, techno and pop, encompassing themes of queer identity and sexuality, alienation, power, vulnerability, and transcendence.

Life After Death is an audiovisual piece where the title reflects on the creative process – digital files of various sizes and types get deconstructed and reinterpreted as images and video sequences, which is an allegory to the decomposition and reintegration of organic matter after its’ decay. Life After Death is about the fear of the unknown, the uncertain, the inevitability of change, dealing with personal emotional trauma, and coming to terms with the unrelenting, unstoppable nature of time.
Zétény Nagy is a sonic, visual, and multimedia artist. He is currently a Graduate Research Assistant and pursuing a Master of Science degree in Creative Technologies at Illinois State University in the United States. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Electronic Music and Media Art at Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest, Hungary.

Suuri Kutsuminen (The Big Conjuring) by Oslo-based artist Camilla Edström Ödemark (b.1985, Finland) meditates on how language informs the understanding of our human condition by highlighting the museum as a place for naming and labelling. The auditive landscape is composed by the Oslo-based artist and musician Simon Daniel Tegnander Wenzel. The visual material was recorded at the Zoological Museum in Copenhagen and the Natural History Museum in Oslo.
Camilla Edström Ödemark (b. 1985, Åland) is a graduate from Kunstkademiet in Oslo. She also has a previous BFA from Konstfack. Her practice arises from an interest for the conditions characterized by a constant negotiation between the self-aware body and its surroundings.
*The work Suuri Kutsuminen was created for the project Falnande Språk. The factory production is supported by FABRIKKEN for Art and Design (DK) and The Cultural Council.
