In this case it is about recycling glass bottles and how they got up to 100 people in one night to go this recycling point while only two went to another nearby.

Further Abstracts by Alma Alloro


Alma Alloro is a Berlin based artist. She describes herself as a contemporary retro-futuristic artist.

Further Abstract is a series of drawings converted to a GIF animation and then converted back to a manual animation spinning from a bicycle wheel. A triangle, a square and a circle move in space, spin, decrease, increase transform and disappear in series of short animated loops.

The drawings became a series of animated GIFs, exhibited at Caesura Gallery. The animations then stepped back from digital to analog, bringing the manual groove one step further, with images on spinning wheel, the animation triggered by a strobe light. This subject works meticulously for hours and hours on a seemingly pointless mission. This meticulous process is contradicted by the extremely short duration of the animation itself.

The work brings forward the production process, recanting the roughness of an earlier aesthetic in animation such as those expressed in the experimental abstract films of Hans Richter’s ‘Rhythmus 21’ from 1921.

Teknobyen Construction Process

During the construction of the building we had a webcam installed in the building just across the street pointing to the construction site. It was a great way to monitor the process in Norway from our offices in Madrid and Delft.

We made this video with some frames captured from the webcam along 12 monts, from june 2011 to june 2012.

Yosemite Park

This is a film we made using a few sequences captured by the WebCam in Yosemite Park (CA)
It is inspired by Malcolm Le Grice “Berlin Horse” (1970) and the Structural Film movement.
Using a fixed camera position and a sequence of loops, Light and Time become the main elements.
