Pink Twins’s Overlook (2017) is screened in the international competition of Melbourne International Animation Festival, held from June 18–25. The festival is Australia’s largest animation festival. Overlook competes in the Installation Animation programme #2 titled “Colourful Escapes”.
Overlook (2017) had its international festival premiere in the international competition of Annecy Animated Film Festival earlier this June. Impossible architecture, an ancient burial ground and a lure for psychotic janitors were the building blocks of Overlook Hotel in Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. In this story vignette, chaos animators Pink Twins add zero gravity and a rupture in space-time continuum to the mix and serve a taster of subtle cosmic horror.
Pink Twins is a duo of visual artists and electronic musicians, brothers Juha (b. 1978) and Vesa Vehviläinen (b. 1974), based in Helsinki, Finland. Active as Pink Twins since 1997, their videos work on the crossing of visual art and music. Live Pink Twins deliver improvised digital soundscapes, often combined with video screenings. Pink Twins have shown their works in exhibitions and festivals in all continents and performed audiovisual live shows through Europe, Americas, Asia and Australia.
