Roman De Giuli is a German photographer, filmmaker and lecturer for media production at the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg. He is specialized in organic visual arts, that is creating practical effects with everyday ingredients without the use of computer generated imagery. His compositions mainly consist of fluids, powders and colors which are applied on glass planes and petri dishes, arranged in stacks to create vivid, three dimensional scenes. High resolution stills and videos are exclusively captured with macro lenses to cover tiny areas in enormous reproduction scales. Roman does extensive studies of organic patterns, their behavior and movement. With the help of music and sound design, he transforms the abstract narrative potential of organic visuals to experimental montages with a cinematic character. Besides video stock footage and prints he offers liquid light macro shows for public events, where organic patterns are emerging in real-time on a tiny surface, filmed and projected in 4K. However, his most popular works are macro cinematographic short films like STREAM, SINGULARITY and RADIOLARIANS which got international publicity, not least because of his visual compositions which are completely new to the human eye.
Terracollage presents and discusses the evolution of experimental film and gives detailed insight into organic FX and its methods. It is dedicated to all people creating new visual forms in uncommon and creative ways.
