Tonight the selection made by Screencity Lab "City as a contest" will be screened at the Waterpieces Festival ( 7:30 pm - Peldosais Makslas Centrs "NOASS")

The video program "City as Context" is a selection of international short movies based on the concept of city as a medium and context for video content. Most of the shorts selected are specifically made for the medium of urban screen: this is one of the public outputs of the ongoing hybridization between real and virtual world.

The screening starts with what looks like a screen error or interferences, virtually enlarging the common experience of a normal screen to an urban dimension (Codec Lossy). The focus is then shifted to the noisy advertising layer that covers everyday cityscapes: thousands of messages push us to consume (Paradiseator) and reach the ideal of beauty (Loop) to be finally happy, using slogans to convince us (More Power to you) also in politics (Election/Coverage). This layer adds more and more information to the universe of signs and symbols of the city itself (Subliminal Wien and I Ride to the Edge). As homage to the festival name, the programme continues with a collection of shorts from Screencity Festival that deals with water in the city context (City Distortions, Les Baigneurs and Thames). Cities are also the background for sudden epiphanies that change the perception of the environment around us (Venice and Passing-by). The screening ends coming back to the screen concept, now multiplied in Times Square (Bjork in Times Square).
