Jürgen Nefzger – Fluffy Clouds

With “Fluffy Clouds”, Jürgen Nefzger takes us on a journey through several Europeen countries: France, Germany, Spain, Switzerland, Great-Britain and Belgium, all of which are strongly dependent on nuclear power. This series goes further than merely cataloguing power stationsIt covers great geographical diversity by situating them in their natural and social environment. The representation of various landscape patterns is underlined by the use of a wide range of colors and lighting situations, following the course of a full year. By choosing the power station as a symbol these images address sociological, ideological and political issues – Raphaëlle Stopin

Floris Kaayk – Metalosis Maligna

Metalosis Maligna is a documentary about a disease that affects patients with medical implants. Metalosis Maligna occurs when a metal implant interacts badly with human body tissue, causing the metal to grow tendrils, which eventually puncture the skin from within and destroy it. The movie shows the development of the disease from its early stages through to the gory advanced stages, by which point entire sections of flesh have fallen away and all that is left is a skeleton of scrap metal.
