What happens when we scale things? Increasing or reducing size may seem a simple practice which only changes the measurements of an object. But in fact, scaling provokes brutal breaks and uncanny tipping points where things become radically and irrevocably different.
Johannes Binotto is a Swiss cultural and media scholar, video essayist and experimental filmmaker.

In his experimental video essays, which have won the BFI/ Sight&Sound poll for best video essays both in 2021 and 2022, he explores the transferences between philosophy and media technology and their effects on our bodies and perceptions. He currently leads the SNSF research project “VideoEssay. Futures of Audiovisual Research and Teaching”.
