The Centrifuge Brain Project
(DEU 2011, HD, 6 Min. 35 Sek., enOF)
Second Main Award KINO DER KUNST 2013
The Centrifuge Brain Project is a mockumentary about scientific experiments involving amusement park rides. Since the 1970s, scientists have been conducting research to study their effects on the human brain. Adapting the aesthetics of a television documentary, this film takes a tongue-in-cheek look at humanity’s confusing search for bigger, better, faster and higher ways to happiness.
