Shift, Max Hattler
Animate Projects presents five new commissions in association with Lupus Films, for Channel 4ís Random Acts.
2012 is a year that historically many cataclysmic or transformative events have been prophesied to come to pass. We invited artists to respond to these portents of a coming apocalypse, in three minute films.
The artists - Oliver Harrison, Max Hattler, Jo Lawrence, Phil Mulloy, and Alan Warburton - take distinct and varied approaches to the theme, exploring ideas of transcendence, extinction, fetishisation, selective vision, chaos and quiet reflection.
The five films were broadcast on Channel 4 and had their online premiere on randomacts.channel4.com in April 2012.
