The Scene Machine Live (TSML) is an interactive installation that presents the public with an accessible way into the film collection of the EYE Film Institute Netherlands. The ‘machine’ contains over a thousand intriguing Dutch film clips from the EYE collection: in colour and black and white, encompassing fiction and non fiction. TSML allows users to access unique film clips in a simple and intuitive way. Users can choose from a number of pre-arranged themes or put together their own theme by making a selection from more than 200 key words including “love”, “bicycle”, “music”, “night” and “sorrow”. The TSML’s clever technology makes it possible to play different clips alongside each other and gives rise to all kinds of surprising connections between the images. .
