Advanced Truthis a film depicting “the nature of things” – visualizing the subconscious world of imagination, meta-imagery and using its “unpredictability” and “accidents” as a metaphor for the internet. Things that seem unreal and utterly uncanny, nonetheless resonate with many of us by stimulating the limbic system of ancient fears and emotions of the “human animal”. This imagination is reflected in the potential of today’s revolutionizing computer technology and software. The Code, the “driving force” behind the software, is more important.
Berlin-based video artist Gero Doll is known for a spate of highly hallucinatory digital films. Each animated film is crafted out of entirely different parts and themes; yet, like a fractal, each is clearly part of an identifiable stylistic whole.
