Abstract-animation artist Max Hattler presents a cross-section of his work in special versions created for Deep Space 8K at the Ars Electronica Center.
Hattler’s 2005 abstract War on Terror classic Collision shines in never seen before, super-high-resolution detail, while Heaven and Hell (2010) the looping diptych inspired by Augustin Lesage’s spiritualist visions realizes its fully trippy potential on Deep Space’s sixteen-meter-wide screen. III=III, a stereoscopic animation exploring binocular rivalry, which was first shown at the Animamix Biennale 2015/16 in Hong Kong, connects to Max Hattler’s presentation at this year’s Expanded Animation Symposium. Expanded Abstractions is rounded off with the UHD world premiere of Divisional Articulations, Hattler’s 2017 audiovisual collaboration with composer Lux Prima, where fuzzy analog music and geometric digital animation collide in an electronic feedback loop of repetition and distortion, and spawn arrays of divisional articulations in time and space.
