Dance with me
Austria 2016, 8:46 min
In Dance with me Marianne Vlaschits devises a speculative vision of a future, where space travelling is exclusively carried out by female astronauts due to their lower energy profile. The basic concept of the poetical unfolding of this alternative universe circles around the “anthropic principle”. This philosophical consideration by theoretical astrophysicist Brandon Carter states, that the Universe is observable only because it meets all requirements that make a life possible for the observer. The animated drawings are citing scientific as well as psychedelic sources and follow the fictional female space traveller into unknown “event horizons” of the cosmos.

The on-going screening series Phantom Horizons
presents digital as well as analogue works that question the paradigm of linear perspective, seeking for a new kind of “status perspective” [Bedeutungsperspektive]. The latter was a development of medieval painting, in which the size of figures is determined by their hierarchical significance. Extending this approach with deconstructivistic ideas and contemporary possibilities of film creation, the presented works open up multifaceted, unseen horizons.
