Echoing science fiction films, Ursulimum's starting point is history.
Facing the unknown, blindfolded under his helmet, a seven-year-old boy allegorically sets out to explore the deep magnetic force fields in the city which is considered the holiest on the globe. A psychological journey, perhaps a fantasy, perhaps machine or a seraph in a breached temple. Just as he lifts the cloth that covers his eyes to see, the film ends and re-loops (when in installation mode) suggesting an expedition without a beginning or end, a recurring loop suspended in time.
Film maker, video artist, visual designer and sound composer, Ran Slavin’s work is centered on time-based media and the use of electronic and digital technologies to explore the dynamics between photography, fiction, digital intervention and narrative. His work explores cinema, multi-channel video sound installation and various musical sub genres.
