Ex Terrat -
An Audiovisual Experimental Animation based on Reinhold Bidner´s personal Paris-Dérives in 2015. The Idea was to walk through/explore and to feel inspired by the Urban Landscapes & Textures, the City, the Street Art, the People and the Museums of Paris as a starting point.
Based on that the main focus was laid on Faces (but also athmospheres) that are rather on the darker side of the spectrum. Reinhold Bidner let himself get inspired by what he collected/ photographed/ filmed or sound-recorded and created his very personal & distinct Imagery/Animations/Portraits (and Sound) out of it through various techniques such as Compositing, Hand Drawn and Computer Animation, Morphing, Layering and Double Exposures, Stop Motion Animation and Music- & Sound-Production.
Paris combines so much Contrast, so much Beauty and Life and Creativity on the one hand, but also Horror and Misfortune and Destruction on the other at the same time, and this work tries to capture that in a rather abstract and individual way.
It not only covers portraits, but to some extent it also is a Portrait of a City full of Creativity, Humor, Love and Communication (but also the brutal opposite of all this), that leaves Bidner behind speechless but also clueless every time.
