Juan Fontanive makes films without using light. Often recycling the mechanical parts of found clocks and pushbikes as the portable containers of his ‘animations’. His interest lies in the beauty of sequential and repetitive movement… Pages fall in neat layers in the manner of a paper fountain, somewhere between film and sculpture - there is no ‘screen’ as such.
We’ve enjoyed Fontanive’s kinetic sculptures before… remember these?

Most sponges eat bacteria they filter from the water, but these sickos are covered in microscopic hooks that cling onto any crustacean who gets too close.
Cells then migrate to the trapped prey, engulf it and digest it where it stands.
You know what it’s like when you see a thing with a backbone getting eaten by a thing without a backbone? Like a spider eating a bird or a mantis eating a frog. Well, this is the shrimp’s equivalent!
