Reynold Reynolds

Impakt Event

15 jun 2010

Apathetic people in a world in decay and the human body dissected through the eyes of science. These are just a few, quite possibly alarming, but, above all, magnificent images you will encounter in the films of artist Reynold Reynolds. With 16 mm film, high resolution photography and stop-motion as his main techniques, Reynolds developed a unique cinematic language which he uses to discuss scientific and philosophical issues concerning perception and time.

Reynold Reynolds was born in Alaska in 1966. In 2004, he was invited by The American Academy in Berlin and was given a studio in the Künstlerhaus Bethanien. In 2007, he received a German grant for the development of two projects. Most recently, his work was awarded at the Transmediale (Berlin) and the European Media Art Festival (Osnabrück).

From November 2009 through to January 2010, Reynolds was an artist-in-residence at Impakt. During his residency, Reynolds worked on his first feature film, The Ultraviolet Catastrophe. In this Impakt Event, some material from this film will be premiered. In addition, Reynolds will show the results of a workshop given during his stay.
