Synopsis: A visual poem, trying to capture the poetics of a cinematic rain shower into the structure of its images. ‘Tears in Rain’ combines the techniques of datamoshing and slitscanning, injecting noise into the images of the 1982 science fiction classic Blade Runner, so that they mutate into a new visual poem.
Bio: Jeroen Cluckers (BE) is a video artist and experimental filmmaker. He explores the audiovisual potential of video and film by researching, deconstructing and transforming the language of both media. He attempts to write audiovisual poetry, resulting in dreamlike, often painterly images that leave traces and balance on the edge of recognition and alienation. His work has been exhibited in more than 20 countries, at festivals and venues like FILE Festival, The Hermitage Museum, Kasseler Dokfest, Ludwig Forum für Internationale Kunst, Internationale Kurzfilmwoche Regensburg, Athens Digital Arts Festival and ISEA.
