OUROBOROS is director-duo Jeremy Carne + Nikolas Kasinos, based in Berlin, Germany.
Concept and Direction for Film and Animation – Shorts, Music Video, Fashion and Brand Commercials.
INSIDE depicts a human story within a dystopia of utilitarian uniformity, questioning the paradox of urban habitats – being together and yet alone. Examining the friction between volume and silence, internal and external, INSIDE speculates on how human behaviour and relationships have the capacity to adapt to new forms of life.

ELEVATE is an annual interdisciplinary festival held in various central venues around Graz, Austria. With its unique combination of critical discourse and contemporary music and art, guests include social and political experts, climate researchers and activists from all over the world.
Inspired by my installation as Artist in Residence 2019, ELEVATE chose the title HUMAN NATURE as the theme of their 2020 edition. I contributed to the Art Direction of the visual identity + marketing campaign, creating the animated trailer + motion design assets.
We need a paradigm shift. But how can this be achieved? Technological innovation? A return to indigenous ways of life and the expansion of consciousness through spiritual experiences? Becoming one with nature through psychedelic substances?
From philosophy to biology, from physics to psychology, from activism and art to artificial intelligence and the search for spiritual meaning, ELEVATE 2020 manifests itself in a variety of artistic debates on the theme of HUMAN NATURE.
Attempting to represent these diverse and interconnected notions of HUMAN NATURE, my trailer for ELEVATE 2020 fuses cellular DNA processes with artificial replication, in a clinical yet psychedelic context.

TELEMETRY is the collection of measurements, and the process of their automatic transmission, which forms our universal data and communication networks. A personal project which explores the relationship between micro and macro, individual parts and the whole.
A dualscreen digital installation created as Artist in Residence for Elevate 2019. Exhibited in the caves of Schlossberg in Graz, Austria. Images additionally commissioned for festival journal.
Reflecting on the subjectivity of truth and value through the gaze of an Artificial Intelligence – the installation observes a speculative artefact, a creative expression of human existence. Drawing a parallel between the invisible aspects of our personal and global natures, the shadow reveals a chaotic and fluid state of being.
HUMAN NATURE questions the role of the artefact as evidence, and to what end distortion is a defining characteristic of historical narratives. Simultaneously investigating the fallibility of representation as well as the value of error, and the space this opens for autonomous creativity.

An original audio-visual performance by Ouroboros, TIDE is an exploration of time as duration, examining the conflict and flux between stasis and kinesis.TIDE creates an environment where the effect of time becomes perceptible and the correlation between memory and experience is investigated through movement. Reflecting on three axioms of time: past, present and future, in an attempt to analyse and represent its form.
