Goldcoast/Goudkustje 2016 for MUX VIDEO ART FESTIVAL, Asheville, USA
Mux Video Art Festival, Asheville 2016
Foregrounding text and sound as main
narrative guides, this film presents itself as narrative as well as visual
presence: slowly, subconsciously transforming in form and tone. The Silent version of Goldcoast was projected on a big screen between trees in the Tolhuistuinen in Amsterdam during Icarus festival 2015; Here it’s silence slowly pulled people in. At Mux Asheville Video Art Festival it was shown with a soundtrack produced by the filmmaker herself using a system generating a pattern combined with her personal remixes of Composers Messiaen and Alva Noto.
Festival Feedback from audience. “Some of my friends have been looking at this short-film three times, and me too. I think I like the film for its subtleties, the cheeky changes in tone of the text, sound and the sort of slowly changing constructed image. It gives me time and space. I think what I really like about this thing is that it depends a lot on how I look at it. It keeps changing character so I kept looking. It think it has a lot of details to offer for who is open to them.”
