«One Word Movie» is an on-line platform which organizes, based on user-supplied terms, the flood of images on the Internet into an animated film. A word turns into images, images turn into a movie. This project plays with the tension between on-line and cinematic approaches to images. Consequently, it functions as well online as in real space. Hence, it will be presented in two versions: as browser-based application and as an installation. The on-line version is accessible via a normal internet connection and standard browser at www.onewordmovie.ch. The installation, closer to the cinematic experience, consists of three video projections onto three screens.
