Nothing Happens (DK/FR)
In the cold outskirts of town, a crowd slowly and silently begins to take shape among the birch trees in the snowy landscape. Only accompanied by the screeching of crows, the crowd forms a line along the horizon. They are gathered to witness an event. No one says anything, everyone is waiting for something to happen ... but what?
NOTHING HAPPENS consists of two contiguous parts, an animation film and a VR experience. As a film, the work is a visually strong and thought-provoking meeting, where the spectator experiences both watching and being watched. In the VR experience, the role of the spectator is questioned, by inviting them to actively participate in the event. As an audience, you are drawn into the unique and sensuous world of animation - you no longer just observe you participate.
The award-winning couple Michelle and Uri Kranot break with the notions of what animation can do. They move in the borderland between installation art, technology and animation, which greatly involves and challenges their viewer.
