Video Artists:

100x100=900 Project: 100 videoartists to tell a Century


 

 

About The Project:

To celebrate 50 years of videoart, conventionally recurrent on 2013, Magmart | video under volcano organize the videoartistic

project 

 

100x100=900 (100 videoartists to tell a century).

 

The concept:


The idea base if project is that to evolve it is necessary to understand what of past must be once and for all archived. In this sense, to call 100

videoartists to interpret anyone a year of the past century, besides to constitute a really global narration of 1900s, rapresent an attempt to processing

the past, not by coincidence entasted to artists, and not by coincidence videoartists - due the moving imagine (cinema, television, web) is one of

characterising elements of 1900s.

Maybe never like videoart, an art has been so intimately close to languages of contemporary, at their grammar and syntax. And the progressive

switchover to digital of any expressive form by images, render always more subtle the wall that separate the artistic use of medium by all other uses.

In this sense, videoart can reasonally be consider like the form of art more inner at XXI century, and in this - hence - gifted of more suitable

communicative tools for comparison on this crestbetween the two millennium. For the same reason, is even - potentially - that in prospect will can

exercise a more significant influence on shapes of communication.

To approach, through an artistic and plural look, the history of 1900s, therefore want be - at same time - a coral and visionary narration of century,

its new reading in an artistic key, its interpretationand elaboration. Avoiding from a historiographical or political look, for its own nature partisan,

and resorting to artists look instead, subjective and partial but not partisan, the project want exite a collective consideration on near root of our present.

And absolutely freedom of any artist, which the only bond will be to focalize her/his own work on a certain year, presumably will bring with itself a

capability of unsettling, and at same time of re-alignment, of our view of century.


100x100=900 also call the artists to experiment a different context for their own production: indeed, even if interpretative freedom is strongly

solicited, is plain - in primis at involved artists - that global vision of artworks will determine a meta-layer of reading, that include and overcome that of

any artwork.


This consciousness is highly probable that - even if under unpredictable shapes - will reflect itself on creative process. At same time, this is the first

time that a similar project is tryed, at least for videoart, and then is an experiment itself.


With absolute awareness of enormous differences, the inspiring model of project should empathize with Terræ Motus, where Lucio Amelio calls

some artists to intervene - exactly in a global way - on an event of tragic greatness like earthquake.


At end of project, will be published a catalogue. Is our intention to cut a closed number of young art critics in this publication, preferably of different

geographical and cultural origin.

The Unstitute is Presenting A selection of works with us

 

We will be working to display some wonderful works from

the Unstitute at our gallery. Due to the duration of some of the works we will be attempting to

create the First Annual Derby International Film Festival where we can display these works among others.

 

 

Physis- Fragments 1-9 'de Oratore' (47 min, 2012) https://vimeo.com/46481853 (please note that the parts of this video can be also shown

individually such as 'Soft Time' (15 min) https://vimeo.com/56876326 and 'Waste' (3 min)  https://vimeo.com/56805601)


'Over a period of 4 months, The Unstitute became the object of a series of Obscene Letters which were deemed unfit for publication.

The material was sent to a specialist named CADE; a catatonic who never speaks his own mind. Cade was instructed to translate the letters

into VideoForm for the purpose of public dissemination.'



The Double (58 min, 2010)59 https://vimeo.com/141284

 

On April 9th 2009, maverick video-maker and self-professed ‘outsider’ Arkhip Ippolitov failed in his bid to commit suicide. The investigation

that followed revealed a man on the fringes of sanity who had all but erased his identity in favour of living out his life as a fictional

character; a character doomed from the outset. Most curious however is that the process of his breakdown was documented and released

in the form of the award-winning motion picture ‘Goliadkin’.

This documentary, produced in association with The Institute of Film and Video Studies, Copenhagen, attempts to discern fact from myth

and make sensible the question: ‘Who is Arkhip Ippolitov?’


“It is ironic that he [Ippolitov] chose to appropriate the character of Dostoevsky’s Goliadkin as his own, for this is a character driven to

desperation by the strange and sudden appearance of his Doppelganger. It is doubly curious when we consider the circumstances of his

suicide, his towering resentment toward the success of his movie and the tragic codicil he sought to execute against himself. But what is

by far most uncanny is that this movie is a record of his self-destruction and that we, the audience, are capable of taking pleasure in the

spectacle.”


Tomas Blauveldt

Delivery (12min, 2008) https://vimeo.com/10401587

Delivery from The Unstitute on Vimeo.

 

J-P Sartre once stated that the only free man is the man in chains. Stemming from an attempt to develop this idea, the film ‘Delivery’ wrests

its suspense structure from two cases of men seeking meaningful performances within confined parameters; the now infamous chess game

between Garry Kasparov and IBM computer ‘Deep Blue’, and the case of Anthony Blunt; art historian and KGB double-agent. Central to this

attempt is the production of a synthetic universe in which contrived scenarios, filmic devices, edits and sound loops constantly refer back

to the process of ‘reality production’ and the parameters by which individuals engage in producing images. ‘Delivery’ consists in a

deconstructed journey of the image of free choice and the absurd quest for a meaningful existential performance both in front of the

camera and behind it.

 

 

Royal Male or Coppola's Spyglass (12min, 2009) https://vimeo.com/7838441

Royal Male or Coppola's Spyglass from The Unstitute on Vimeo.

 

Royal Male or Coppola’s Spyglass’ is an experimental narrative about a woman in search of her image, her body and her expression. As she

encounters the male in the language that pins down her gender, her image begins to decay into archaic stereotypes of the feminine that

are rooted in fear and horror, and the language she is subjected to becomes one of violence. In an attempt to experiment with the

possibility of a feminine language the video emphasises the value of the interruption; in sex, in language and in image, and introduces ETA

Hoffmann’s character of the Sandman as the deliverer of dreams to the

sleeping, and of nightmares to the awakened.



 “How does one express the struggle for identity in language that does not fully capture the complexity of identity? Royal Male

experiments with the medium of film in order to reject the gendered confines of language and to create a new voice that explores the

possibility of agency through the techniques of visual

and acoustic interruption.” -

Yana Sakellion

 

 

Synopsis:

Pereselenije (n) from Russian ~ ???????????~ moving from one place to another, relocation, migration.
This animation addresses the longing, the waiting, and the moment in front of you in the process of immigration. It is inspired by artist's own experience, and
 is produced in a collaboration with composer Jonathan Kolm. Moving images and the music were developed simultaneously often informing and inspiring each other.
 Each movement represents a different stage of the migratory experience. Pereselenije, Movement I represents the first phase, "the departure", and Movement IV is
 the last in the sequence describing the stage of "settlement".
*The animation is completed using modified images/video and generative graphics (AfterEffects/Trapcode).
Full credits:
Animation: Yana Sakellion
Music: Jonathan Kolm, composition; Mauricio Salguero, clarinet; Mary Voutsas, piano

Sara Al Haddad and Simon Coates

title: ???? ????? (We Lived and We Saw)

 

 

bio:

Sara Al Haddad is an Emirati artist and Simon Coates is an English artist. Both live and work in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. Sara is a graduate of The

American University in Dubai and completed two solo shows in the Emirate in 2012/2013 as well as taking part in Art Abu Dhabi. Sara uses fibres and yarns in

 multi-media artworks that reflect and comment on the role of the female in her own society. Coates works in film, sound, paint and print in works that interrogate

the politics of emotions. He manages and curates the UAE’s only non-profit arts centre (DUCTAC). He also writes for the Harpers Bazaar Art Arabia magazine.

 


synopsis:

???? ????? is the first collaboration between Sara Al Haddad and Simon Coates. ???? ????? can be translated as We Lived and We Saw. The short film with

 sound is a reflection on gender politics, both in the Middle East and worldwide. The video piece shows Sara in contemplation as she embroiders a large quilt,

sitting cross-legged on the ground in the same way as women have traditionally sat to carry out their embroidery works in the UAE. The soundtrack has its basis

 in a field recording Coates made at an Emirati wedding in Dubai, wherein the genders are segregated and the man dance, chant and drum.

has a chance to win Bitcoins just by playing. One coin corresponds to 0.01 Bitcoins.

The citizens’ habits are tainted by the game. Coins are hidden all over the city, you can

spot them by scanning the local area with your device, but often they are not easy to

grab. People started to leave their jobs in order to collect Coins in the streets. All over

the city people are jumping and running around with their smartphones, trying to grab

as many virtual coins as they can, while the App developers’ identity remains covered.

“I don’t actually make my work – my work makes itself.

I use my Artwork as a means to express and study my own experience.  I offer it to others as an experience to relate to.”

– Amy Karle

 

 

 

 

 

Who are we? Why are we here? How do we understand our place in this world? These are the fundamental questions that Amy Karle is e

ndlessly confronting with her work. For Amy, Art is a means for the continual exploration of issues involving the body/self divide, material

and spiritual duality, transformation, nostalgia, transcendence and search. Her Artwork serves as an agent of awareness, both for herself and

for others, helping us to confront these essential questions that strike at the chords of truth and ignite self-realization.

 

Over the last decade, Amy Karle has allowed her Artwork to flourish and enrich the lives of others in various environments around the world.

Life itself inspires Amy Karle’s Artwork. Living fully present in the moment while simultaneously being conscious and embracing the forces

that have shaped who we are and who we will become, time, illusion, and the dichotomy of loss and fulfillment frequently re-emerge in

Amy Karle’s Artwork through time-based processes and ephemeral experiences. Amy Karle unifies the material and immaterial by creating

Art around and about the body that may function as a transformative device to transcend the material and provide an experience of the unseen.

This is integrated in the way Amy Karle often offers viewers situations where they may observe themselves from a removed perspective.

“Dressing up” is such an example where the wearer may be instantly transformed by garments that may serve as new “skins”, a catalyst for t

he foregrounding of transformative energies contained in the polyvalent body. Amy considers fashion a means of exploring such potential in

addition to creating immersive environments that the viewer can step into and participate with.

 

Amy Karle attended Cornell University and the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University, where she received degrees in Art

and design and philosophy. Amy currently works as a full-time Artist, is experimental with new materials and media, and is working with and

developing new technologies with three dimensional recording, sound and scent. She has worked in the luxury goods, fashion and auto industries

breathing life into commercial products with her expertise of stimulating internal transformations through an external vehicle, informing product

experience via design. Amy Karle also dedicates herself and her resources to orchestrate large-scale Art and fashion benefit events and has

spearheaded numerous Art-related charitable endeavors for various humanitarian causes.

 

Amy Karle’s mission is to raise consciousness and touch others with her Artwork. With each piece, she opens the door to new questions that

must be answered next. This process insures that her Artwork promises to remain a lifelong endeavor. Amy considers her work successful when

the artwork functions independently from her and she contributes to its message as a participant rather than as its creator. 

Amy Karle is available for commissions worldwide.

Title: To love is to let go?
Time: 5:07 mins Date: 2012 

Category: Experimental Short

Synopsis: The film is a self-portrait of sorts that is a confrontational (albeit visual) dialogue I have with my displaced self. It highlights the fears, fixations, escapism and

anxieties of the protagonist, essentially representing a tussle with a dual identity of sorts- living between two parallels and altogether incongruous worlds. The West and my

home country of Pakistan.

mistakenly add facts that never actually happened over time. Carmen Tiffany received her BFA from

Minnesota State University in 2005, and her MFA from the University of South Florida in 2010. Working in several mediums,

including installation and video, Carmen has exhibited internationally. Recent Exhibitions and Screenings include MOCA Miami's Optic

smart, and visually elegant.

 

 He has concentrated on pivotal subjects: the social and intellectual import of the eminent writer, Aldous Huxley;

an experimental film essay on evolution featuring Richard Dawkins (and the gorillas of the London Zoo); an essay on

architecture extending from the early works of Mies van der Rohe to the steps of the Burning Ghats of Varanasi;

a hyper media installation that questions ‘chance‘ — as quantum indeterminate noise — to edit film; a feature

comedy collaboration with one of North America's most outrageous theatre group on Shabbatai Zevi, ‘the other’ grea

t Jewish Messiah; and now (2013/2014) a double versioned feature documentary on psychedelics.

SHOT ON BLOOD:KOZMIKONIC ELECTRONICA 

1/2 of the film was shot using a hand cranked 35mm camera, a 1912 Bell and Howell 2709 — B. The other half of the film was shot in

HD. The film was hand processed and using the colour matrix and gamma of a hand made emulsion (using his own tinted blood cells

for grain — based on a 1930’s patent) the film was then transferred to high definition video. 

The work is about representation today 
— analog / binary — & electricity & hydro power & British Columbia & the beginnings of cinema via Eadweard Muybridge & the energy

certificates of the Technocracy party & the absolute value of noise & the year 1957 & regional modernism & the binary communication

revolution & Vermeer's “Milk Maid” & Poincaré recurrence theorem & the great Canadian cowboy singer Wilf Carter & Western

Culture & the concept of Grace in Catholic painting & the Tath?gatas of Buddhism & Boris Karloff as Frankenstein reaching for the

light.

Artist Bio

 

Vin Hill is an artist and technologist. Born and raised in Chicago, IL, he lived in Des Moines, IA for ten years before moving to

 Washington in 2004. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Washington in 2012. Vin has worked as a web software

architect, database administrator, and systems analyst in the banking and healthcare industries while creating art in multiple media:

 music, film, interactive audio and video installations, and network-based systems artworks.

His work is an attempt to interrogate the sublime while accepting the answers may be beyond our grasp. Vin places significant

importance on using computers to act as his agents in this interrogation, performing complicated actions in a coordinated way based

 on flexible rules while in close communications with each other. He believes the answers are to be found between rules and

 randomness, intellect and emotion, flesh and machine.

Vin's music is currently available on iTunes, Amazon, and Bandcamp under his stage moniker Oyo. He has exhibited and performed live

shows in the Seattle area. Vin was featured on KEXP 90.3 FM's Sonarchy Radio Show in 2010. He has lectured and worked as a

teaching assistant in Experimental Video classes at the university level.

Vin Hill currently resides in Seattle, WA with his wife Sabrina and daughter Maya.

 

Artist Statement

   
  • Do our creations replace us, extend us, or something else?
  • What remains / emerges when a signal and source are divorced?
  • What is the relationship between the knowable, expressible, and interpretable?

My work is a response these questions while accepting the answers may be beyond our grasp. Crucial to this endeavor is the embrace of

cutting edge technologies such as computer vision, real-time video editing, the use of datasets collected via information networks, and

various psychoacoustic techniques.

I place significant importance on using computers to act as my agents, performing complicated actions in a coordinated way based on

flexible rules I define. My influences are numerous and varied. Several of the most important are Vito Acconci, Gary Hill, James Coupe,

Paul Lansky, and Steve Reich. These artists exemplify elements of my artistic credo: that the answers I’m looking for are to be found

between rules and randomness, intellect and emotion, flesh and machine.

The answers I'm looking for are ultimately inside us.

Stay tuned for his next exciting interactive project:
Project Title
!watching
 
Short Project Description
An interactive video installation which raises questions about position, power, privilege, pleasure, and the visibility of their exercise.
 
Project Discipline(s)
Visual, Installation, New Media, Interactive, Video
 
Project Description
“!watching” is an interactive video installation inspired by works from three artists: Titian’s “Venus of Urbino”, Manet’s “Olympia”, and
Guy Bourdin’s “Mistressand Maid”. These works depict women as an earthly version of Venus, speaking to sociopolitical power arrangements
. !watching uses these ideas as a starting point. I present three models – one in an evening gown, two dressed as housekeepers – engaged in
a power exchange. Each one becomes Venus while serviced by the others, the current Venus signified by the “crown” of red high heels
lovingly placed on her feet. The work is displayed on a large HDTV. As viewers approach the display, the models stop and stare at the
audience. This is done using a camera mounted near the display. The camera captures live video of the viewers and uses custom software to
recognize faces and alter the video in real time.

About The Artist:
I am a working artist with a lifelong interest in the use of technology. I have studied and used project management techniques, multiple
computer languages, and knowledge about building computer systems to achieve various creative ends for the past decade. I am also an
electronic music performer / composer who has self-published two albums and presented my music during an hour long recorded
performance on KEXP 90.3 FM in Seattle, WA as part of the Sonarchy program in 2010.
 
In 2012, I earned a BA in Political Science and BFA and in Digital Arts and Experimental Media at the University of Washington. I studied
under artists Shawn Brixey and James Coupe, and composer Joshua Parmenter. My focuses were sound installations, experimental video,
and using computer systems as an art medium. My previous projects included a sound installation in a library which used networked
computers hidden in library shelves which read aloud algorithmic poetry generated from texts appropriated from internet news sources
(Logos Zontanos (2011)) and a video installation which relied on computer vision and sand to control a montage (Ken (2012)).

Balam Soto

 

New Media Artist Statement:

New media artist Balam Soto merges existing and custom, digital technology with artistic concepts and aesthetics to create exploratory works, including 

interactive art installations,muralsart video and performance.

By merging art and technology, Balam provides a seamless interaction between humans and technology, creating art works that react to the presence or behaviors of

individuals.  A true “geek artist”, he first conceives the idea for a new project based upon an artistic concept - not yet considering the digital technology or resources he

has available.  From there, he makes it work, working independently on the artistic and technical sides of the project.

 

Biography:

A prolific artist, Balam has exhibited his new media artwork in fine art venues worldwide.  Venues include the World Maker Faire at the New York Hall of Science Museum in

Queens, NY; El Museo del Barrio in Manhattan, NY; Bronx Museum of the Arts, NY; Queens Museum of Art in Queens, NY; Everhart Museum of Natural History, Science & Art in

Scranton, PA; the Centre Cultural in Brussels, Belgium; the National Library of Cameroon in West Africa; the Art and Technology Corridor at the Three Rivers Arts Festival

in Pittsburgh, PA and Museum Miraflores in Guatemala City, Guatemala among numerous others.

Balam has received three “Editor’s Choice” awards from the World Maker Faire held at the New York Hall of Science Museum in 2010 and 2012.  In November 2009, he was

awarded the “Latino de Oro [Golden Latino] Award for Arts & Culture" in Connecticut; he has also received "Official Citations" from the Mayor of the City of Hartford, CT

and the Governors of Rhode Island and Massachusetts.  In April 2008, Balam was honored with a Diploma of Recognition as a “Maestro,” a Master of Visual Arts, by the

National Congress of Guatemala for “being a valuable and outstanding artist with international success.” 

Balam is the owner of Balam Soto Studio and co-owner of Open Wire Lab, both located in Hartford, Connecticut.

project statement: http://www.jingzhoustudio.net/projects/inner_shrine/statement.html


SYNOPSIS / STATEMENT Inspired by the poem "Journey Home" composed by the noted Indian poet, Rabindranath Tagore,
combined with my writing,  "Inner Shrine" reveals the emotional and spiritual journey in searching of one's soul. To find the
inward space of one's own—the home of the heart, one has to experience life to the fullest. It is the most intricate encounter
that wanderers have to undertake, through which they find the essence of their existence and the answer for who we are.
SCRIPT (POEM)
Inner Shrine
The time and path that my journey takes are long.
I came out on the chariot of the first gleam of light, and pursued my voyage
through the wilderness of worlds leaving my track on many a star and planet.
It is the most distant course that comes nearest to oneself,
and that experience is the most intricate which leads to the utter simplicity of a tune.
The travelers have to knock at every alien door to come to their own,
and in the end, one has to wander through all the outer worlds to reach the innermost shrine.
 
The eternal moments travel through channels of light;
never can one grasp the mere feelings nested close to the heart.
 
I am.

Michael Woody lives and works in the Champaign Urbana Illinois. He has an MFA in Painting from the Savannah College
 of Art and Design and an MFA in New Media from the University of Illinois. Michael has shown in galleries, underground
festivals, on closed circuit video programs and has been featured in a series of pirate broadcasts in the states and abroad. 
His work deals with cultural and institutional knowledge and representation. Michael borrows elements from specific case
files and archives in order to explore the potential of historical revision.  His work expresses the value of immediacy,
 interpretation and revelation rather than seeking any appeal to precision or truth. Michael is currently working from an
obscure murder case from the Deep South, a family album of extreme bikers, and a 50-year history of broadcasts related to
the influenza virus.
Arlington is a brief video sketch that relates several stories from within a biker community in Arlington, Texas. It
focuses primarily on the role of motorcycles within the culture. The piece features the machines, depicting their influence
as a catalyst for important events within the member's lives.
 

 

 

 

 

Kevin Logan:

Kevin’s cross-disciplinary practice spans over two decades, comprising installation, digital media

and sound composition/design. He has exhibited and performed internationally, has had sound

works on compilation CDs and audio-visual works screened in festivals worldwide. He is currently

 a PhD student at University of the Arts London, where his research explores the sonic through

gesture and performance.

‘Seamless’ by Kevin Logan (Audience Programme Note)

‘Seamless’ is  a compositional performance mediated through the lens of two video cameras.  An unidentified man sits at a table, he sonically manipulates

 a teapot, smashes it – then reconstructs it using Gaffer tape. Jump cut edited, what starts as aural documentation evolves into an electroacoustic composition.

Seamless’ objectifies the faceless entertainer, dislocating the event from its history. 

With a nod to the oeuvre of Tommy Cooper, if Laurel and Hardy were to have extended their ineptitude into the practice of musique concrete, their 1932 short film

The Music Box’ may have been a precursor to this.

The title ‘Seamless’ makes reference to kintsugi, the ancient Japanese art of fixing pottery with lacquer resin seams, whilst also winking ironically at the virtuoso dance

 music DJ in his / her endeavour to make the transition from one record to another imperceptible. Although the incitement by traditional ceramic restoration methods is one

of a more esoteric nature, this strategy for a composition takes these notions then re-punks and re-purposes them. Its inspiration extends from Vaudeville to Metzger’s

1959 manifesto ‘Auto-Destructive Art’, from the unpredictable humour of Fluxus concerts, to contemporary laptop electronica.

Like most things created by humans, computers often break-down while doing the work they were
programed to do. I exploit these weaknesses, using the flaws as the genesis of my art. Through
“databending” (forced errors or subverted “natural” function), I wrestle control away from the
computer that results in unique digital output. The investigation of this distortion produces a
self-reflexive understanding of digital technology that appropriates the semiotic nature of visual
language. These images are then manipulated into a photographic or video medium. The final
pictures attempt to destroy and reconstruct cultural significance and raise questions about the
mediation of art vis-a-vis technology.
   
Moreover, the forced glitches create a simple aesthetic that is rich in color and texture. Stripes
become convoluted and intermixed; light and dark turn and twist into each other creating a
dramatically chaotic architecture. Unique formal qualities of texture, light and motion are formed;
 and, contrast and flow growing more evident. Furthermore, pulsing, glowing light and patterns
suggest movement and exploded and degraded pixels mutate into inorganic shapes. The data of
this process is recorded to construct a digital terrain that striving to familiarize the now unfamiliar.

Semaphore (of Dendroid Origin)
single channel video, running time:14:11, 2011

 

Conceived as an origin video to the photographic series Dendroid--a collision

between the digital landscape and landscape photography--Toban Nichols

expands on this investigation with Semaphore. Traditionally, a “semaphore” was

a train signal that indicated the state of the track ahead and how a train should

advance, such as: clear, caution or stop.

In the video, we see scenes of two people in a domestic space which alternate

between panoramic vistas of rolling foothills, a craggy coast and an urban

shipyard. The semaphores--the man and woman--perform seemingly arbitrary

gestures which then allow the viewer to proceed into the meditative landscapes.

 Keeping with his distinctive process of manipulating technology, Nichols elevates

his deconstructionist tendencies creating vibrantly colored star-burst explosions and kaleidoscopic

“semaphorms” that whimsically transform and dissolve back into the scenes.

The digital distortion layered on top of picturesque tableaus (and the canned

sounds of nature) suggest the way technology has mediated our interpretation

 of the surrounding environment and the transient ebb and flow of the

 techno-distortion highlights how visual/ digital information invades our daily

routines. Additionally, Semaphore considers the exponential rate of technological

advancement (predicated by Moore’s Law) and society's unquestioning forward

march toward a mutable and unforeseen future.

     MARTA IVANOVA

 

                     Born 1991-03-22 Russia.

                     Lives and study in Vilnius, Lithuania.

                     Education: National M.K.Ciurlionis Art School, sculpture specialty. 2003-2010

                     Vilnius Academy of Art, Photography and Media Art Departament, 2010-2014 (BA)

                    

      

     Marta Ivanova is photography and media artist, mainly interested in woman‘s theme and the

 ways of her body expression. She explores woman‘s body as a battle field, as an atlas.

            Marta is trying to push a creative link to a viewer of a woman as a “spot”, a

“masquerade master”; woman as a residue, as a man - scanner object, a skin cast-off,

a woman as a bedroom. By using video and photographic media in works, artist creates a

 'thin' intermediate layer between tenderness and violence, between concealing and unveiling,

between HIM and HER.

  

“Neckties”

The work “Neckties” consists of ties projection and screen work with

shrinking- releasing tie loop.

The projection “Neckties”consists of various scanned neckties,their sound

was recorded by special computer program,which converts images to sound

.Every sound had specifics Audio accents ,which were heighten manually

from hearing.

Neckties set reminds the ( Y ) incomplete chromosomes set. The second

component is another detail of necktie ,which is displaying on the A3

format screen .In shrinking and releasing move I observed masculine

masturbation moves .

Necktie has various links,statements,but I choose the link to phallus.

“Phallus is not the physical body organ, but the goverment/power

symbol,organ.”

“Woman desires phallus, but gets only penis.”J.Lacan

The projection was exhibited in the dark cube.Every necktie was very

powerful and had their own message to the audience.

And the video screen was near to the projection ,but you couldn’t see

both segments in one time.

  worldwide.

 

 

Dandakaranya - The jungle of punishment

 

Death. Disaster. Destruction. Displacement. Dandakaranya, the jungle of punishment, was the mythical

abode of Lord Ram and sheltered a primitive tribe who hummed uncoded songs of life. The mysterious

character of terrain reinforced the enigma. Few ever visited Abujhmaad, the unknown hills. The myth is

stripped off today as the woods are now the nucleus of the biggest insurgency in independent India,

Maoist-police conflict, that has seen over 5000 corpses in the last 15 years. Animals disappeared, tribal

life destroyed, natives migrated as police bunkers today dot the once secluded forest and rebels lurch in

dark with stolen weapons.  Encounters and rapes have acquired a yawning banality, tears elude the

barren eyes. No end in sight, the battle rages on

At the Dawn of the 21st Century: A View-Thought The Red Window "(The Critical Time of the World

Civilization)

"ALL AROUND US ARE RACIAL AND TRIBAL, WAR, BORDER, PHENOMENON,TRAGEDY, VICTIM,

CONFUSE AND CONFLICT. HOW ARE WE TO INTERPRET THESE -- SIGNS OF THE TIMES -- IN

THEIR PROPER CONTEXT?"

Basic Concept:

My goal is to investigate the expressive possibilities of conceptual visual language and to develop

Collaborative New Art as part of both Contemporary Art/Contemporary Global Structure and the

Technological Civilization in which we live today. I am especially interested in finding out how

contemporary art can enhance the distribution of information and foster a profound universality in

the human nature and cross-cultural artistic and critical collaboration. The meaning of the very

possibility to enrich contemporary art may also come into question. In my inquiry, I am guided by

 the following set of questions: Are sensations-reactions to contemporary art still significant today?

 In what way and how can contemporary art theory and practice address and help solve today’s

global problems? And finally, Can contemporary conceptual art disclose the corrupted social

values in mega polices and create a bridge between the present and the future generations?.

 

 

 

 

Aaron Oldenburg:

Aaron Oldenburg is a game designer and new media artist whose primary interest is in game rules as

 an expressive medium.

 His video and interactive work has exhibited in festivals and galleries in New York, Berlin,

São Paulo and Los Angeles, including SIGGRAPH and FILE Electronic Language International Festival.

He currently works on physical computing projects, designing new interfaces and electronic sculptures.

He teaches game design as an Assistant Professor in University of Baltimore's Simulation and Digital Entertainment

program and has an MFA from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. October 2003 he finished two years as an

HIV Health Extension Agent for the Peace Corps in Mali, West Africa.

 

Baptize, by Aaron Oldenburg: This is from a series of experimental video games exploring religious actions.

As an atheist who nevertheless feels religion to be a part of my life, I choose certain rituals, activities or mental games that

people play to reinforce their faith and attempt to simulate them through game mechanics. I begin with verbs such as “Baptize” and

with these attempt to create game mechanics that express feelings associated with those verbs,because the essential expressive power of a game is through the repetitive performance of an action.

Molly Bradbury:
Derive suggests the tension and anxiety of urban existence. Visually the piece presents a scenario for a hyper-vigilance towards
stimuli, though the seduction of the spectacle draws the viewer in. The ephemerality within the mise-en-scene provokes an unsettling
desire to rest on a moment, though the moment is always deferred.


Molly Bradbury is an artist working with video and sound, currently residing in Santa Fe, NM.  Bradbury’s work draws on her

interest in phenomenology, perception, and synaesthesia, and allows viewers to become immersed in the worlds proposed by the works.

Though Bradbury’s background is rooted in classical music, her extensive knowledge of experimental sound and moving image

practices shapes the work she produces.  While studying at Mills College, Bradbury had the opportunity to work within a community

of colleagues on collaborations resulting in live music performances with Bradbury’s large scale video projections

Francesca Fini:
Francesca is a a videoartist and performance artist from Rome Italy.
1) LISZT (2012) - category video
duration: 6 minutes
statement: It is the beginning of the 20th century and three children are posing for a family photo. The children are young pioneers in a colony of Christian immigrants in

Jerusalem. The subsequent intervention of the photographer has added to their bewildered faces the false colors of the photos of the period; a combination of chromatic shades with the odor of

cookies and hot milk, porcelain dolls, long sea journeys, dusty old books, and an artificial “innocence”. This is the point of departure for a digital transformation in which the lower part
of my face replaces that of the children, in a reversal of time and meaning crystalized in a non-time and non-meaning, as a different kind of story comes to light which, superimposing itself
on the peculiar circumstances in which the photo was taken, looks for its metaphorical significance. In this way the three children become three human archetypes imprisoned in the eternal
pillory of a family photo. It is a forced communion that translates into reciprocal impatience and an increasing verbal violence that superimposes itself on the words, preventing any kind of
interaction. The sense of incommunicableness is obtained by juxtaposing fragments of phrases found on the Internet, in a mash-up that unravels into a contemporary senseless dialogue that
reveals how a word not listened to is, consciously or not, violence in its pure state. And therefore the universe concealed in this photo, the epic of human dreams and illusions, in the family
album of the search for a lost innocence by these ancient pioneers, is translated into a form of violence that throughout history has brought extreme consequences. When there is only the word,
one’s own, the mouth becomes a weapon. Nonetheless, the invitation to listen is recuperated in the end, in a sort of message of hope that I consign to the world through these three unknowing ancestors.

2) VIRUS (2012) - category video
duration: 5 minutes
statement: A video on the obsessive manipulation of my own image, which becomes a metaphor for the general confusion between real and virtual of the "Société du spectacle" prefigured by
Guy Debord. The digital culture and its tools become a self-destructive virus. I could work on the face of Osama Bin Laden, but the fake photo-montage spread by the media as proof of his
death is already an unattainable work of art . I then brought the concept within myself, in the heart of my "feminine" self-destructiveness, where the pen of the tablet becomes an "augmented"
surgical scalpel deep into the void.

3) WOMBS (2012) - category video
duration: 6 minutes
How do you see yourself in the mirror? We do not ever see how others see us, we do not see how we really are. Wombs is some sort of dream about femininity. A woman meets her golem, a
piece of clay without features, to be fashioned at will. The golem is a double of the woman, but an amorphous double, a newborn entity still sealed in its purity and fierce innocence. A deity
(maybe an evil one) who is daughter and mother at the same time, in whose womb the woman hides to find peace.

4) PARNASUS (2011) - category video
duration: 10 minutes
Parnasus is a video that tells a dream. And like all dreams, it comes from a small image nested in the mind. The image is a marble statue white as snow. I've never been driven by the
fantasy of Winckelmann that still subdues our imagination. All that white marble disorients me. I feel lost, I need color spots as if they were signs in a map. A misunderstanding, that of
Winckelmann, that becomes the metaphor for an even deeper and more dangerous mistake: the illusion that the past, crystallized into a kind of noble and abstract projection, it is always better
than us, it is always perfect.  So in my dream I return to the statues the color denied. The color erased by the passage of time as you cancel the losers of history and forget the evils of the world.
I return the blood to the ancient statues, and the ferocity and the violence that always pervade human history, in an infinite loop of death and delusion. An absolute and unbearable violence that
with their unreal perfection those white icons had perhaps to exorcise. A dream that serves to abstract from the dream, to return to talk about the real world. The video was shot in Cine Ars, the
famous laboratory in Cinecittà Film Studios managed by a family that from generations creates props and scenographies for movies. But the growing use of CGI in movies are putting their work
in danger,narrowing their field of action and transforming their work in modern archeology. An image of a Time that is already the Past. So I thought to treat the fake statues has 3d graphics, \
cutting them out from the video frame, rigging them with a 3d skeleton and animating them. The hand-made Analogic fake but real becomes even more fake, while recycling itself to survive the
Digital Age.

 ERIC SOUTHER is a time based media artist with his BFA in New Media from the Kansas City Art

Institute and is currently earning his MFA in Electronic Integrated Arts at Alfred University.

 

Eric has worked on many collaborations including The Life of the Techno

Buddha, where he worked with engineers to develop an interactive brain wave cap to control video and sound. He has also worked with

 dancers in developing interactive multi-media dance performances and collaborated with another EIA grad to construct an interactive

video opera.

 

His own work develops modes of information flow in which he can control and reinterpret code in order to create electronic forms.

He selects informational substructures out of the immense amount of complexities that are embedded in our everyday interactions with

electronic media. He is interested in the threshold of perceiving these data sets. What information is lost when the layers of data become

too hard to see through? How can we make the complex comprehensible? How do we describe the unseen signals that run through our

electronic culture? These are questions Eric explores with the use of Max/MSP/Jitter, creating interactive installations, single channel

 videos, and digital drawings that are also functional programs, which he has termed “Aesthetic Interfaces.” Eric has shown his work

nationally and internationally including New York, Chicago, Beijing, Barcelona, and Cape Town, South Africa.

l:ed is a group of artists currently composed by the picture slayer Dorianne Wotton and the soundsmith Exome?ne.
l:ed as in « l : Experiments in Digital »
l:ed as in « l : Æsthetic of Desolation »

Along with their own works, the two partners Dorianne Wotton and Exome?ne are collaborating since 2004 around the concept of « æsthetic of

desolation » their work extends to the areas of photo, music, video, digital arts and multimedia performance.
Their more recent works are « Synæsizer » (digital art installation), « Glitch-O-matic » (digital art installation) and « X-Peri-Mental »

(audiovisual live act)

These recent works as they tend to involve new partners and artists made them create this group in order to facilitate the emergence and the shaping

of new pieces of art.

This group aims to facilitate the creation of new pieces of art (especially multimedia and digital), to promote and disseminate them.
So l:ed is open to every person and institution in order to facilitate collaborations between its members and the completion of their projects.

Exome?ne (soundsmith)

Two activities are filed under the name Exome?ne: soundsmithing and digital apothecarium. Soundsmithing : My approach is very physical.

I often start a new work because I felt the urge of transcribing an image or a feeling into sounds. Once the idea is set, I work sounds like a potter with

clay, or a blacksmith with metal: hammering, stretching, twisting sounds until they fit all together into a coherent piece of music.
Digital apothecarium : This latter part of my creative activity goes beyond sound but my approach is quite the same: playing with an abstract

material as if it was physical in a more experimental way. The sound in itself is no longer triturated but what generates it through several techniques

to do so: databending, generativity, algorithm, glitch...
Site : www.exomene.com

Dorianne Wotton (picture slayer)

Dorianne Wotton lives and works in Paris. Her approach is multi-disciplinary : photography, video, graphics, installations... She describes herself

as a « digital artist ».
Dorianne Wotton focus on representing the æsthetic of desolation which means outline what makes sense in the multitude of every little things

which do not fit into the common æsthetic and moral codes. Everything is then subject or object for her creations.

She is not limited to a single technique : accident, blur, noise, deformity, textures, superimposition, everything is potentially useful to her work.

The synæsizer

A synæsizer is a device that makes you see what it hears and hear what it sees. Thus, it turns you into a synesthete, justlike Kandisky, who could hear music in

colours or Nabokov, for which letters would conjure up colours.

To do so, it is an artificial synesthete in itself: its video system is directly plugged into the audio and vice-versa. If we compare it to a human being, it can hear

with its eyes and see with its ears and what it sees alters what it hears, which endlessly alters what it sees...

T echnique

The technique used here is the "databending", which is a form of "hacking" in the primary meaning of the word. Files or datastreams, whatever their original

purpose is, are interpreted as audio files. Raw data often generates raw sounds, this is why Exomene developed a specific interpretation and refining process,

partly based on the analysis of a spectrogram/on a spectrogram's analysis.

In this version of the synesizer, the music is generated by "Visions denaturees", a photography series by Dorianne Wotton, and the video synthesizer has been

set up both by Dorianne Wotton and Exomene.

Synesthesia

Databending does not apply to computers only. Like it's altering the semantics of signs, databending is possible with all symbol systems such as the human brain.

When a human brain bends data, it is also synesthesia: union of the senses, etymologically.

Synesthesia is a neurological phenomenon affecting about one person out of 23. The most common form of synesthesia is the processing of letters or sounds

into colours.

The use of synesthesia by artists is not new. Kandisky made a theory about its use in painting and Baudelaire got inspiration from it in "Correspondances",

for example.

This device is therefore an artificial (multimodal and bidirectional) synesthete, its senses having been melt together. But that quality of being a synesthete is

only the consequence of its primary function, which is to generate a synesthetic experience on its user. It's an artificial synesthetic generator, what can be

called a synæsizer.

 Video Synopsis:
  Listen 2 Me Work (7 min. 30 sec.), which was shot in 2010 at Art Basel Miami Beach, is a video-based performance about working--that is, sitting, kneeling,

  reading, writing, doing something, doing nothing, consuming, and enduring. Part of my ongoing investigation of the relationship between labor,   young women,

  and the State, it confronts the pleasures of the American Brand Identity as well as its pains. It also features my failed rendition of the tragically forgettable

  Lindsay Lohan song “Too Young To Die."  

 


 

Evelin Stermitz

M.A., M.Phil. 1972 / Austria

Working on media and new media art projects by using different media like photography, video and net, including installations and conceptual works.

The focus of art work is on gender based female and socio-cultural topics. The issues of projects are about gender, role models and the gap between man

and woman referring to the theory of Jacques Lacan in terms of “the Other” and the performativity of the body by Judith Butler. An important task is the female

body and the outgoing connection to created symbolic meanings of gender in history and nowadays. A main emphasis is on performative works.

In media theory the main interest is on the representation and approach of the female body in everyday media and media art encouraged by Barbara Kruger’s

work “Your body is a battleground.” Study of Pedagogics and Media Communication (1996 – 1999) at the University Klagenfurt, Austria, completed with a

master’s degree in Philosophy on the thesis “Imagoes of Dancing Women in Film” in the year 1999. Received a scholarship for the postgraduate study of

Visual Communication at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, (Prof. Milan Pajk – photography, Prof. Srec?o Dragan – video

and new media) in the year 2004. Graduated with a Master of Arts degree on the thesis “The Female Body in Context of Media Art” in the year 2007.

Bio

Teresa Nunes Alves de Sousa, born in 1979 in Lisboa (Portugal) studied painting and drawing first at the experimental art center

ARCO in Lisboa and in 2011 completes the BA in Fine Art (Installation/Sculpture) at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design

in London. Her work is mostly based on performative text and video questioning what she defines as an essential space&time of the

frame. Her continuous investigation within phenomenology of architecture breathes through the film work where the space of the

frame becomes her dwelling space.

 

Statement

As one may experience the frame as space - in the sense of dwelling in it as a space- within-a-space - then the frame may be

felt/thought as a construction of space in its own right. Thus questioning of the space of the frame in relation to its own physicality

and that of the space and time which support it. An apparatus to question the essential correspondence between the space and

time of the seer and the seen: the contained and inaccessible double within the flat frame as representation and experience overlap:

which one is to be dwelled upon: my space or the space of my frame?

 

 

 

    Printed images of work. What are they? Images? Work? Or images of work? It is an industrial like process is it not? Small

thumbnails prints cut and stacked together: a deck of cards. Years of work in a hand of cards or a hand of cards in years

of work? Which is the jocker and which is the ace of hearts? Sometimes documentation is documentation of work, sometimes

documentation is work and work is documentation and documentation of work. The never ending spiral & the moon game. Catch me

 if you can. We spin, the earth spins, the moon spins, the universe spins for sure. Thus our stillness. The window, the first still, the

 architectured frame. Yes, build an inside to frame an outside. The canvas is the window and the window is the canvas. Perspective

sets the rules. The nostalgic divine arcadia & the garden of Eden. Paradiso’s canvas. Hortus conclusus. Nature imitates art.

Nature = scenario. Velasquez reflects it. Later the seer and the seen. The subject is in. The Divine falls, Nature dies, landscape lives.

 The countryside, the mountain, the seaside. Law protected scapes, obviously, the beholder’s eye. The still frame, the moving frame

and the live frame. The  Absolute has fallen, antropo’s relativity is empty. But not the timeline frame. Long live the Heritage.

Landscape = scenario.  Mass production, labour. Male confusion, Female Sapiens release. Travel, communication, networks.

Multiplication & Complexity. Nano & Parallel. The Subject is falling, Landscape is dying, I∞ lives.

 

                       

                          Marcantonio Lunardi


Artist Statement:


By placing his work between the traditional documentary genre and the visual experimentation , has tried to mingle the specific technical and linguistic

knowledge he acquired in different forms of expression, and he is constantly searching opportunities to connect the ones with the others.

One of the most significant features of his work is the development of a poetic of exploration of the relationship between the aesthetic and political content.

The action is the recurrent theme of his production : action as historical memory, but also as a representation of the present which wants to overpass itself

and its symbolic stillness.

 

Bio:

Born a Lucca (Italy) 1968.
Lives and Works in Lucca and Istanbul.

Director, cameraman, documentarist, Marcantonio Lunardi has practiced, since the beginning of his experience, a contamination of visual techniques, which is

the most significant feature of his work. Graduated from the Festival des Peuples, hestudied, among the others, with Daniele Gaglianone, Leonardo di Costanzo,

Gherardo Gossi, Marie-Pierre Duhamel Muller. By following the master class with Michael Glawogger, Sergei Dvortsevoy, Thomas Heis, he has been able

to deepen his knowledge of the directing art and of its hardest aspects.

 

  

Default is a work of art on the disillusionment of a system which has reached a turning point. A man, alone, sits among the ruins of an abandoned factory in front of a

phone. His hand holds the receiver and brings the handset to his ear. A series of answering machines, whose metallic tones, like a filter between the citizens and

their Country, direct him in a vital suspension made only with waitings. His request for being heard is mediated with a series of numbers, recorded voices and

impersonal sentences which bring him in a compulsive carousel of information and pauses. Suspended in this non-place, where time expands and the collapse of

society seems impending, a man can only wait for an answer which will never arrive. Mistaking a key, a timetable or a sentence means starting afresh. In the loop of

the pre-recorded answers the nature of a Country is subtended, which is not able any more to speak to its citizens, more and more faraway, inadequate, absent.

The key to read this work lies in the static nature of the picture, which is based on the symbolic elements introduced by the author. Under the ecclesiastic vaults

of a factory of the early XIX Century, a liturgy takes place. The phone from the Sixties, emblem of the economic boom and the table, covered in white cloth to

symbolise a sacred banquet, are the ritual props of this celebration. The phone call becomes a metaphysic event, like a prayer devoted to a faceless and nameless

entity whose answered cannot be always trusted. From the point of view of the citizens, what the Countries usually call a default, becomes the communication gap

in which the inability to comply with the terms of the social contract is resolved.     

                         

                          

 

TRILOGY OF DECADENCE 3 - LAST 21 DAYS

In twenty-one days, Italy has seen change its political system. Silvio Berlusconi, after 17 years of government, is forced to resign by international economy..

There are days when the national media overwhelmed the citizens of numbers, graphs and lan- guages unknown to most. But the people have the perception that

the set of data unintelligible, radically affect on their daily lives, on their freedom of movement. The actors of this story lose their shape and are replaced by the

spectrum curves of the respective voices. The graphs thus generated are similar to those of marketplace whose laws are apparently different from the biological laws,

but they really are derived from human impulses such as fear or elation. The cash of a small shop in the suburbs becomes the simulacrum of an economy that does

not exist anymore while the money disappears in the slow performance of a stock index.    

 

TRILOGY OF DECADENCE 2 - SUSPENSION

"Suspension" express the author’s mood squeezed between the social condition and the political situation around him. This work is based on a waiting condition:

the Italian citizens expect long since that something changes. Today each home, each family has one or, many time, more TV. But TV, since the late ’80,

became a sounding-board of a culture full of superficiality, degrade, destruction of each ethic form. At the beginning the voice of the leader is clear but quickly

becomes distorted, chaotic, incomprehensible and changes in a continuous background noise that accompanies the daily life of all Italian families. The meaning of

his words becomes unimportant because citizens feel his speech like a disharmonic interference with their lives. Each protagonist observes the viewer with an

attitude of expectation and an underlying question: “Will anything change?” But change seems impossible because TV get the upper hand. The final epiphany of the

leader dominates the viewer, transforming him in a player of the drama on the screen.

Nadya Primak is currently halfway through her senior year of college at Oberlin majoring in Visual Arts

(with a concentration in ComputerScience) and Russian. She was born in Krasnoyarsk, Russia, but her family moved to

the United States when she was four years old.

Since then she has lived in several different states and had the privilege of traveling back to her place of birth and

elsewhere abroad.

The internet and new media was what kept her sane when she didn't know where to call home and, because of its ever

changing nature, she doubts she will ever tire of it.

"This video was a project for my Senior Studio class, an advanced course for art majors at Oberlin College. We were asked to spend 12 hours nonstop working

on a piece. My goal was to make a commentary on how the past, especially our childhoods, become surreal as we get older. Since we cannot go back to them,

and our memory begins to fade, we don’t always remember what was real and what wasn’t. I chose old (public domain) Soviet cartoons because I spent my

very early years in Russia."

Art Statement
"Don't interpret. Experiment." - Gilles Deleuze

"When Information is brushed against information the results are startling and effective. The perrenial quest for involvement,
fill-in, takes many forms." - Marshall McLuhan

The cornerstones of my digital art-making are my desires for experimentation and for interpersonal connection.
My experiments have roots in the multi-disciplinary art of John Cage and Allan Kaprow, numerous video artists and
underground film-makers, as well as in the open source programming community surrounding the programming language
Processing. As was the case for Cage and Kaprow, an important aspect of my work is how it connects to my teaching as well
as my life.

My digital work, whether in video, drawing, writing or code has always been a kind of ongoing sketchbook. Composition,
both in the visual and musical senses, takes priority over story in my work. I am particularly interested in generative means
of making my work surprising and unpredictable. My method of working is notational and modular. Parts of the work may
appear in an online journal or blog, a gallery installation, a festival screening, a panel discussion, or maybe some combination
of these formats. Altogether these different modes of exhibition allow me to “think out loud”, as well as revise and remix
that thinking over time and space.

Over the years I’ve worked with friends, family, students, strangers, and community members to explore how digital
 media open up new channels for communication and self-discovery. The process of creating, recording, editing, and
distributing work provides joy and flow in my life. Since the electronic means for these processes are always becoming
 more affordable and accessible, it is a real pleasure to share my skills and interests with those around me.
My enthusiasm for sharing these things can be viewed as a mission, not simply a career.

The ubiquitous presence of cameras, sensors, computers and the internet will all come to bear on changes in art, education,
and everything else we encounter. The ability to critically view and creatively produce objects, whether digital or analog,
will be increasingly important types of literacies heading into the future. The task of coming to grips with these literacies
calls for a willingness to experiment and connect with other people. This is where people like you and I might lend a hand

Network in Movement: Movement Museum, Body, Breath, Gaze Multi-museum, Autopoiesis, Transformation, Liminality, Emergence, Presence Trans-museum

http://muzej-pokreta.org

Network in movement is a three-part project that consists of Movement Museum, Body, Breath, Gaze Multi-museum, and Autopoiesis, Transformation, Liminality,

Emergence, Presence Trans-museum. What connects all three Network in movement projects is the research of movement as a medium; at Movement Museum we ar

e interested in the performance, but also the performativity of singular movement, movement as such, or pure movement; at Body, Breath and Gaze Multi-museum

we are interested in the physicality of the movement – body-movement, breath-movement, gaze-movement – and the potentialities of generating new movement

physicality arising from the body, breath and gaze as the singular performance media. At Autopoiesis, Transformation, Liminality, Emergence, Presence

Trans-museum we are interested in performative status of the autopoietic, transformative, liminal, emergent, present movement; we would also like to approach

and research – autopoiesis, transformation, liminality, emergence, presence – as a set of organic tools for making the singular movement. Movement Museum

establishes with an open call invitation for collaboration in various categories: Movement-Choreography, Movement-Image, Movement-Motion Picture,

Movement- Video, Movement-Sound, Movement-Architecture, Movement-Design, Movement-Installation, Movement-Photography, Movement-Performance.

This open call’s subject are the following questions: How to notate the singular language of the movement, and how does it function?; How to generate the singular

language of the movement, and how does it function?; How to document and share the singular language of the movement, and how does it function?

Questions can be answered by: score; diagram; video work or work in any artistic media. Movement Museum tends to perform its open setup live; it is also conceived

as a multi-day event marked by the practical realization of the open setup through all artistic media. Movement Museum's tendencies are aimed towards the creation

of social network and the possibility of networking by the new transcultural language of movement, but also the attempt to make every movement and visible. The

aim of the piece is to find the singular language of movement and rediscover new conceptual and performative ways of networking people. Network in Movement is

not just the virtual formation (http://muzej-pokreta.org), it was set for few times in real time and space as living and traveling network of different, but co-exiting

performer's body museums.

Here and now – at the Movement Museum – how to make the first movement – the one of naming the movement? And is it really necessary since we think of

movement – as the naming without being named?

The simultaneity of the conceptual movement exhibit and the movement exibited in the concept:

Corpography – videography – somagram – corpo-geography – soma-grammatology – soma- dramatology – body-text – body not-art – presence not-art –

writing before writing – self-questioning the form of language before language – crypted-bodyology – corpogram – corpor(e)al videography –

corpoGraphics/videoGraphics – aspirated body (im)materiality – conceptual generator – museum outside the museum – breath physiognomy made visible –

body without figure – choreo- corpoGraphy/choreo-audioGraphy/choreo-videoGraphy - bodyScaping-breathScaping-soundScaping in the coexistence –

body-essay - choreo-cognitive movement linguistics – geo-choreometric composition – diagram – emancipated choreographic object – making the negative space

visible – museum-writing movement – writing in movement – grammar of Becoming – choreo-philosophy – automusealization without the museum –

autodocumentation without the document.

page1image27616 page1image27776

We hope to rethink an idea of museum itself, and to rediscover the body as the living and Becoming museum, as we also hope to develop new performative tools and

rediscover new conceptual approaches to the perception of an exibited object, for example - can we and how can we exibit Presence - by the score, task, diagram,

video work?

BodyScapes/FractalScapes/ImageScapes

We use different tools in order to generate bodily and digitally the idea of fractal BodyScape. First of the choreographic tools we're using is conceptual dvd map

made of nineteen fractal animations of performer's movement. We try to embody and represent the idea of fractal body and fractal movement geometry.

Choreographic video tool BodyScapes/FractalScapes/ImageScapes we use in order to digitally generate the conditions for embodying, or disembodying the fractal

ImageScape. We transfer the physical moving image into the digital image. This interactive video installation is a base of different bodies in movement in order to

make transfer and recombination of different (em)body(ing) ideas.

Self-portraiting Objects

Self-portraiting Objects is a video work with interest in the process of Becoming an object by transformation and audio-visual deconstruction of representation.

Image-object and sound-object co- emerge together in the third “Becoming a sound” and “Becoming an image” objectified (id)entity.

Sylvia Toy:
Sylvia Toy. I am an actor who never goes out the door without a camera. I have been a performance artist for 22 years. I am a
trained videographer and have been a video artist since 2006. Art is part of my daily routine. I do not believe in inspiration.
I do not believe in writer's block. I make art even when I don't feel like it. People are prolific because they are disciplined,
focused and motivated - not because they have either a magical amount of time or flashes of inspiration. I was a professional                                                                                  
gallery artist who carved iconic life-sized wooden figures for 27 years. This link is my listing in the African American Visual
Artists Database: aavad.com/artistbibliog.cfm?id=7820. I was a professional theatre arts for 17 years - my favorite review
of my performance art was written by Jack Helbig in The Chicago Reader in 1999 about my solo play, Alan Klasky Never
Loved Me, chicagoreader.com/chicago/alan-klasky-never-loved-me/Content?oid=896247.
My work is exhibited on the curated online art venues, VideoArt.net Artist and ArtChannel.info. My videos have been screened in CologneOff 2011,

Dither Doom: 
 
problematize&&aestheticize technological glitches&&errors as a means to develop&&introduce socio-cultural critique(s) on wo/mans’ nature with techology
Description

the movement consisted of mostly screen based ‘artworks’ deeply rooted in a fatalistic sense of hyper awareness and excitement that the apocalypse was approaching and unavoidable.
 much like the dirty new media artists that preceded them, the mayan new media artists sought to problematize and aestheticize technological glitches and errors as a means to develop
 and introduce socio-cultural critique
(s) on wo/mans’ nature with technology. however, mayan new media artists’ integral focus was warning humanity of their
certain and undeniable doom, and this sensibility manifested itself as a collective ‘paul revere’ persona in the immediate months prior to the end times on a
variety of social media platforms like TUMBLR, FACEBOOK, and TWITTER.”

… 2012 DITHER DOOM

“late october of 2012, commonly referred to as ‘the golden era of dither doom’, was a unique intersection of nihilistic joy and an overwhelming sense of forlornness”

“recorded in october of 2012, the album became a seminal ‘music’ in the dither doom canon, and further, the catalyst for many of the later era dither doom
bands that formed days before the end times in december of 2012”

“art historians typically refer to the movement as mayan new media art, or also commonly referred to as ‘end times aware art’.”

“post-dither doom is characterized by heavy use of analog synthesizers and a sense of nihilistic apathy
”MAYAN NEW MEDIA ART MOVEMENT

artist statement
Life is a performance and all potentialities arise from the act of trying. Improvisation is the essential element of creative space, the building
block of collective experience. From this transcendent lens, a dance is the sum of its singular inspired parts; a song is the reverberation of a
instantaneous and euphoric emotional eruption.
My interdisciplinary practice is a manifestation of the duelling identities, sound and movement, that joust deep in my psyche. To process my experiences I use many articulations of these
disciplines to understand the world around me. I create pieces that explore human eccentricities through vocal abstraction, physical manipulations, experience, and visual metaphor.
The desire to communicate on a sensory level is of utmost importance to me and everything I see, hear, and do has the potential of being source material for choreography or noise
soundscapes.
 A buzz, a purr, a railing, a sidewalk, a table, a dress, a halting train, a humming refrigerator, a creaking door, a giant ladder, are all opportunities waiting to unfold.
Incorporating these inspirations from everyday life, my solo sound practice has evolved from random sounds to focused repetitive, looping cyclical patterns, and processed, affected vocals,
with continual articulations on the same sound or combination of lyrics. A variety of conceptual techniques are explored in this practice of sound making utilizing tools like voice, breath,
throat singing, discarded electronics, keyboards, a modified theremin, field recordings and delay pedals.
Video and installation are key forms used to delve into my fascination with the complexity of perception and its potential distortions. One of my recent works,Cupboards, a piece in which
 I climb  through my partner’s kitchen wearing only a slip, defines this process. The piece was conceived, performed and filmed in one evening, making its physicality muscular and urgent,
and its- sound mundanely authentic. Cupboards explores domesticity, confinement and legitimization, set to a symphony of the sound of my breath and
growing exhaustion. The low-fi combination of lighting, and improvised movement creates a strong sense of anxiety and suspense. Other conceptual video performances, like of Bladerunner,
pick up where the themes explored in Cupboards leave off, critically engaging with elements of popular culture, such as reality television that reflect the complexity of our social and
 self-made realities.
These solo expressions are only a part of my situating my practice of being an artist within a guarded and yet connected human landscape.
I have always carried a sense of heightened urgency in the creation and musical production process, and in my most recent projects, this urgency has become a central theme
in my work.
The now is my tomorrow. I focus attention on the life spans of my musical performances, understanding that they exist before and beyond the physical presentation of the work.
 Each work is a holistic and unfamiliar territory in which sound and the surrounding elements combine to create a unique output. Over the years, my improvised process has honed
itself to focus on a single point of departure. Every articulation and every musical choice is based on a work’s originating concept. The resulting performance videos like
Don’t forget me,
offer immediate images that are at once simple and understandable, but sad in their strangely shaped authenticity and familiar in their organic, visceral movement qualities
 that are inevitably universal. It’s in this place where the intimately familiar and uncomfortably foreign meet in creative discovery.

moving progressively towards the digital image. Since 2000 she is conducting research in the field of experimental film, based
on two axes: the moving image - the aesthetics of representation of movement, and the formalization of thematic and scientific
concepts. She made ??a few experimental animation combining these two research areas: Web, TIME, LIQST_liquid state, and
Landscape, which were programmed and awarded in international festivals devoted to avant-garde cinema, animation and v
ideo-arts.
She is also involved in international conferences where she presents these movies or articles about the image and its

The Failure of Images (Fifty Wars After 1945)
Carolyn Kane, 2011
Images suggest access to another time and place, to someone else’s reality. Images of war––photographic and electronic images to be
precise––are expected to give more: truth, ethical commitment, politics, historical record, recognition, commemoration, shock, horror
(and the pleasures therein). This has been the case with war photographers like Roger Fenton and Robert Capa who courageously took risks to procure
 records of the realities of life and death in war. However, images remain images.
 Many people who view images of war (which have become increasingly graphic and saturated in global culture) have never experienced war.
Privileged, protected, and safe, one may view images of horror and atrocity on a tiny electronic screen, coarsely filtered through compression
and decompression algorithms, rife with noise and digital artifacts. How could one expect such an image––even thousands of such images––to ever
become more than a sample or fragment of a much larger, complex, and often distant, incorrigible struggle? While images of war (along with captions
and sound tracks) candidly point to the aggression, anonymity, corruption, rage, and zeal of war, no sooner has this been indicated then the delivery
platform (a television news cast, a website, a photograph) segues into another subject, advertisement, or current event, further distantiating the image
of war from war itself. Our images fail war and yet war constantly and perpetually calls upon images to communicate itself. The Failure of Images
(Fifty Wars After 1945) explores this paradox and responsibility. In less than fifteen minutes of digital video, I chronologically reassemble found
archival footage from fifty wars after 1945. My image manipulation techniques are basic: layering, enlargement, and juxtaposition. Many of the color effects
and distortions (pixilation, blurs, and artifacts) are a result of compression-decompression processes intrinsic to online video. Appropriately, these (natural)
distortions inadvertently act as a form violence and self-censorship, further mediating war away from its depictions.

ARTISTIC STATEMENT
A musician and a painter for a long time, I focus on video art and audiovisual performances to make my two favorite medium meet: sound and image.
At the origin of each of my creations, musicality plays a role as important as image does and each one influences the other by transmediality. The result is a
series of experimental videos and performances where sound and image are so inseparable that the one without the other would lose its meaning.
I particularly appreciate using short sequences (samples) and repeat them all along my experimentations, wishing to transfigure commonplaces into coherent
work.
The sequences are treated as mere utensils, found objects, used to create visual and musical compositions at a time.
Unlike Scriabine's, Kandinsky's or even Schoenberg's works with whom I like to identify, neither sound or image come first ; the two mediums take birth in a
same creative impulse intended to be reactivated.
 My technique is to capture very short samples of about 2 or 3 seconds, where sound and image are straight away equally important. The strong constraint of my
approach is to never separate them but to play with their perceptive complementarity. These samples are multiplied in time but also in the picture, undergoing
successive distortions that affect the frame rate, color, scale, not to mention those imposed necessarily to sound. The repetition,
 time lag and arrangement of the samples create a near-musical rhythm that in some cases may be at the origin of the final composition.
To summarize, sound, rhythm, musicality on the one hand and the constantly evolving plastic composition on the other are inseparable elements of my approach. It’s how I
 get what I call rhythm'n'split.
I force myself to the utmost simplicity in the audiovisual shootings inspired by everyday life. Neon tubes that light up, passing cars, banging doors, ringing phones
become visual “OCD”. Things are distorted and manipulated, reassembling a new obsessive and compulsive reality, close to Dada by its humor and only made sustainable
y the rhythmic harmony obtained. From the chaos and apparent anarchy of these collages emerges an aesthetic based not on the meaning or the message but on the
intermedial coherence between sound and image. My videos are as aesthesic as aesthetic, in order to bring the viewer to experience the immediate sensory elements of
everyday life.
 Convinced that art must leave the premises devoted it and come out to meet people, I try to deal with video art as street artists do, with the desire to deliver the essential
 in just a few lines or blocks of color. I do not want my videos to live on the margins of society, solely locked in official art places, but to fit into the urban landscape to
become accessible to everyone.
 To go further in that direction, I decided to produce audiovisual performances, extensions of my videos, to try to share
the aesthetic experience with the public in a unity of place and time, like the musicians who perform in concert after having produced their album digitally.
 
Ali Kirby:
Ali is currently in my third year of a degree in fine art in Limerick School of Art and Design, specialising in Sculpture and
Combined Media.
My practice is mainly object based, combining making with found objects. I also work with photography, video and installation. In this
video I am exploring themes of cultural identity, anxiety and the subjectivity of memory, using domestic objects to create a highly
charged environment.
Ali will be presenting "Dwell."

 Katrazyna Randall and Dawn Nye:

Katrazyna Randall and Dawn Nye have been making collaborative works since 2001. They have been i
n exhibits and festivals across the United States, most recently at The Art Kitchen in Milan Italy. T
hey both currently live and work in Maine, U.S.A.
 Ms. Randall has shown all over the United States, as well as in Micronesia. S
he is a combined media artist who uses traditional media as well as new media to explore her subjects. Her work
is influenced by philosophy, social criticism, design, politics and the history of art.
 
  Ms. Nye has worked as a graphic designer but has maintained a studio art practice for the last 20
years. In her work she is most concerned with telling stories of conflicting human desires, best
intentions, beauty and futility. She uses humor, pathos and the history of image to connect to i
deas that cannot be accurately described with words. She is influenced by graphic design, film,
animation, music, literature and the history of art--but also by the people she meets,
the neighborhoods she has lived in and the headlines she reads.

Larisa David: 

 

 

Bio Eggs, has a ritualistic form in which the action of breaking is repeated over and over, reminding us of the habit of destroying

objects on New Year’s Eve, in some cultures, to purify oneself. The eggs employed in the work, are filled with confetti, making

the moment of them breaking sensational, but also commenting on the sensationalism of destruction with no point seen on screen.

Larisa David

Born in 1988, in Targu-Mures, Romania. I live and work in Bucharest, Romania.

I work with video, installation, photo-collages and photography.

My work is focused on identity behavior, and how synthetic constructed conducts take form and are influencing us in daily practices.

I am interested in the line between fiction and lived life, between nonsense and sense; the way life is portrayed in narratives and plots of mainstream forms,

interrogating the behaviors and values that are absorbed and used in local contexts.

Because many behaviors are normalized by media and arguably we are raised by entertainment industry, I take a look at, and confront popular visual culture: films,

commercials and music videos, in search for the hidden meaning in the media’s official discourse. My position is that we all need to be habitants of global culture,

to understand constructions artificially made that are invading our lives and influencing our perception.

I appropriate, interpret and recycle existing material, remove elements to disrupt their form and reconfigure them with a new grammar that allows me to dig

deeper to their core and highlight their hidden content. This process allows me to make strange and unnatural images, revealing a new visual grammar.

Eliminating certain elements, like brands, products or narrative, allows understanding of the fetishistic nature of gestuality and absurd choreographies that are

employed in creating images.

I explore in my video work, time, performativity and repetition, reminding viewers of the mechanical aspect of video, but also to trivialize actions, to center on the

sisyphean aspect of life. I tend to use repetition and loops because I find them powerful and obsessive, relating to specific psychological impulses and at another l

evel,  mimicking the continuous loop of images and gestures in our culture.

I am looking for ways to insert in my work juxtaposing elements to explore banality, creating images that are built on tension and confusion.

I insert new possibilities, détourned domestic objects and actions, to form an altered reality gravitating around chaos and order. The piece,

I received a Bachelor Degree in 2010, in Fine Arts, Photography, Video and Digital Image Processing at the University of Art, Bucharest. In 2009,

I received an Erasmus scholarship to study for one semester at Brera University in Milan. In 2012, I received my Master Degree in Video Art, at the

University of Art, Bucharest.

Zhu Xiaowen:

Artist Bio:
Xiaowen Zhu is a media artist with a primary focus on video. She uses the medium to explore her interest in the change of personal

perception in a global nomadic context. Most of her work deal with the motivation and reflection of going/existing elsewhere and the

in-between space of a culturally complex environment. She is described as a visual poet, social critic and aesthetic researcher.

Her questions are often raised not only from her own experience as an international traveler, but also from her observation and reflection as

acritical thinker and an active communicator.

Currently, Xiaowen Zhu resides in California for a year-long artist fellowship program at San Pedro, the port of Los Angeles.

She received her MFA in Art Video from Syracuse University, USA and BA in Film, TV & Media Arts from Tongji University, China. During

her undergraduate study, she attended an exchange program in Academy of Art and Design Offenbach in Germany.

Her projects have been shown at Dumbo Arts Center (New York, USA), V2_Institute for the Unstable Media (Rotterdam, the Netherlands), I

Phone Call in Noir (3 min, 2010, Silent) http://vimeo.com/38889437

This is a three-minute re-edit...

of the B-movie "Shock" (Alfred Werker, 1946) that tells a fictional couple’s September 11th story. This video, built on a calendar square

dated“Tuesday, September 11,” explores collective memory surrounding the terrorist attacks, and questions the veracity of authored

film texts.


The Vase (1 min, 2009, Silent) http://vimeo.com/38740030

In this video, a mysterious young woman clips off sunflower heads, wrecking havoc on a vase of crickets. The desperate, yet graceful

 movements of the insects are a silent plea against environmental degradation. The directorial manipulations evident in the work ultimately

serve to question the veracity of documentary nature cinematography.

 Javril Well:

                                       Javril – Artist statement

Javril’s work represents a vision of the world as it is experienced and as it is imagined by one individual. Javril extracts everyday events and occurrences

and analyses them through video and other media. The outcome of thes explorations of the world is a body of work that is simultaneously universal

and personal. The work focuses particularly on places of consumption, sites of mobility and public spaces, as these spaces are a type of crossroad of

complexity that seems to characterise contemporary society. Javril’s work appears as a kind of naïve sociology, innocently prodding and exploring what

may be mundane or banal, but that can also reveal new dimensions not normally expected or experienced. By focusing the subject matter on the

outside world a sense of the modern human experience is evoked. However such close examinations of the mundane produce a new outcome: the utterly

familiar is made strange through exploring them through new associations

and interpretations.

Javril lives and works in Paris, France.

Scott F. Hall: Janae N. Corrado, Elise Frost, Freya Gustava, and Eleni Manolaraki

Scott F. Hall is an artist working in sound, music, instrument design, still images, video, and sculpture. Hall has invented unique instruments

such as the microtonal power ambient bass, harmonitar, arpegguitar, and the duoquadramonotar. He has created several original sound

practices which range from the capture of field recordings to composition within the harmonious confines of twelve-tone music to

creating sound in ways which are essentially free from the shackles of tuning and time. Mr. Hall will be presenting videos with stereo

 sound by Scott F. Hall, Janae N. Corrado, Elise Frost, Freya Gustava, and Eleni Manolaraki.

Eleni Manolaraki holds a Ph.D in Classics from Cornell University. Before acquiring professorship at the University of South Florida,

she taught at Williams College in Massachusetts and at Washington University in St. Louis. Her fields of specialization in which she

is widely published are Roman historiography, epic, oratory, and natural history.
http://languages.usf.edu/people/emanolaraki

Freya Gustava is a lyricist, singer, and experimental artist from Houghton le Spring, Tyne and Wear, UK.
http://www.youtube.com/user/FreyaGustava

Elise Frost is a summa cum laude BFA graduate from the University of Florida in Dance Performance. Choreography and improvisation

have been focal in her artistic exploration of movement and life. Her strong belief in the power of the artistic journey through daily

expression has been influential in her research of many unique art forms that contribute to the universal human experience. Frost trained

 with many renowned artists nationally and internationally and conducted many workshops and classes as a teacher at Harwood-Watson

Dance Studios. She has choreographed dance and theatre works for the University of Florida, the Johnny Holloway Theatre, and three

professional dance companies.
http://www.hwdancestudios.com/faculty-and-staff.html

Janae N. Corrado's dreamlike and surreal work is a fusion of personal experience and influence created though a partially intuitive

process which mines her own subconscious and the human collective memory. Amorphous wash applications and the sinuous grain of

the wood panels she often paints upon combine to provide an open field for viewer cloudreading. However, her process of nearly

automatic drawing gently focuses meaning in her pieces. Corrado's work is rich with timeless visual elements, moody atmospheres,

and the romantic narrative subtext of a 19th century Symbolist expressed uniquely in the diverse international context of contemporary art.

BIOGRAPHY

 

I was born in Lima, Perú, a country ravaged by terrorism and civil unrest. Despite its chaos, Perú is also a land

of great natural and artistic beauty. My country’s conflict between violence and aesthetics has served as the greatest

influence on my work.

 After graduating from college in Perú, I immigrated to the United States to pursue a MS in Industrial Engineering at the

University of Texas. My engineering career allowed me to escape the restrictions placed upon women in my homeland

as a result of gender. Still, while working as an engineer, I continued to pursue my life-long interest in fine arts. After

years of being torn between my daily professional career and my nightly classes, I finally decided to fully devote myself

to the study of art. My journey took me to New York City where I obtained a MFA degree in Photography, Video and

Related Media at the School of Visual Arts. I currently live and work in Florida exploring my vision through photography,

video and installation. I teach in the Visual Arts Department at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, FL.

Biography – Danny Winkler and Emilia Loseva

 

The main principle of these works is the becoming of images. They follow the shadows dancing in the reading halls of estranged planes – containing the

 descriptive forms of fashion, ancient ritual texts and those of contemporary philosophers, stylised haiku poetry and metaphysics; projecting a visual world

that hides within the blink of an eye – of the art of Sergey Parajanov, turbulent priests, desert roads, torn-apart images, faded photographs, untamed animals

staring into the camera lens.

Our present occupation is a new video art work, drawing together video, Super-8 and still images within a narrative inspired by the stories of Gustav Meyrink.

 We are working on a book of English translations of the Russian Futurist poet Vasilisk Gnedov for Wakefield Press, following translations of Russian

Futurist poets for St. Petersburg band ZGA and Chris Cutler. Further art collaborations include the completion of a book for a multi-disciplinary

Peat Art project, sponsored and issued by the Latvian Artists’ Union, currently on tour in Latvia and Sweden (www.peatprojects.com).

Danny Winkler started his artistic career as an experimental art-photographer, having previously worked on development, environmental and media

 projects for the United Nations, One World Media and the British Council. Having completed postgraduate Visual Anthropology studies at Goldsmiths College

in London, he is currently directing films, working on documentary scripts for TV and writing freelance.

Emilia Loseva is an independent author and artist who has developed concepts, designed installations and written essays for art events, booklets and

catalogues. Published in Russian language newspapers and magazines, including Labrit, Biznes Baltija, Ibo, Daugava and Tretja Modernizacija, and author

of the projects Czuzhiye and Metro, she is currently completing a book of poetry for publication with illustrations by the artist Dmitry Lavrentjev.

 Recent art events include:

  • ·    Untransparent Objects in Mirrors (2011)  Art-installation curated by the Latvian National Museum, Riga;
  • ·    The Other Side (2010)  An exhibition of lithographs and video-installation, Riga;
  • ·    The Teeth of Maldoror

Biography 
Diran Lyons studied Sculpture and Painting at California State University, Fresno and New Genres and Painting at
University of California, Santa Barbara, where he was a Regents Fellow.
His art practice is heavily conceptual with exacting craft and edgy content, including indoor and outdoor installation,
video and photography, painting and drawing, and performance. Committed to the tradition established by
Joseph Kosuth, Robert Smithson, and Barnett Newman, he embraces the written word as a critical part of his
artistic practice, publishing texts and making paper presentations concerning philosophical issues, his own
artwork, and that of others.
Lyons currently lives and works in Clovis, California, exhibiting different bodies of artwork nationally and
internationally. His Political Remix Videos have been featured on major media outlets,
including Wired Magazinemaxkeiser.com, and the IMDb most popular short film ratings, where he was the first
remix artist ever to reach #1. Examples of his remix work have been presented at Ars Electronica in Linz,
Austria, Open Video Conference at New York University, and ROFLcon at Massachusetts
Institute of Technology. 
His viral video 99 Problems (Explicit Political Remix) won the Pirate Flix Video Remix contest, curated by
 Cory Doctorow, and was featured on Entertainment Weekly,BillboardBoingBoingBuzzFeedCollege Humor
Daily DotDigital SpyEgoTripLandfuse.tv, Gawker, Guardian Music, Hip Hop Chronicle UKHuffington Post

notable film festivals and video exhibitions includes LA Shorts Fest in Hollywood, CA; Athens Video Art Festival 2010
 in Athens, Greece;RE/Mixed Media Festival in Brooklyn, NY; WPA\C’s After Effects at Corcoran Gallery of Art,
Washington DC; Antimatter Film Festival in Victoria, British Columbia,Canada;Xperimental 5 Film Festival in
Nicosia, Cyprus; International Film Festival no. 10/2007 at the Museum of New Art in Detroit, MI; amongst others.
His feature length experimental film, Goodbye Victoria (2009), won the “Best Feature Film” award at the Chashama
Film Festival in Manhattan and earned the honor of inclusion in the 2009 Streaming Festival highlight features program.
Lyons’ 2006 solo museum exhibition, ENGULFED, at the Gulf Coast Museum of Art in Largo, FL, affirmed the
repurposing of existing ideas and materials by advancing Friedrich Nietzsche’s notionof the aesthetic object
as a ‘Creative Lie.’ The exhibit consisted of six works tailored to appear as a group show of internationally recognized
artists whose practices rework classical theories of the sublime. The artworks therein, produced by Lyons himself,
were original and hitherto unseen by the public but labeled with the names of the artists fictitiously included in the
exhibit.The illusory environment called into question the reductive qualities of museological discourse and its role as a
trusted gatekeeper of art as a homogenous archive of recognizable bodies of knowledge.

ARTIST STATEMENT

 

Place becomes a starting point of reference within my work. By taking the histories, local folklore, and

mythology of specific locations and filtering it through the myriad of my own personal history I am able to create

a hybrid of contextual imagery within my videos and installations. My work addresses experiences of being

an Asian American woman integrated into multiple cultures paralleled with an upbringing in the Southern

 United States. Throughout each video there is a reflection of my multicultural background interwoven with

contrasting historic locations and environments that construct a dynamic contextual network of iconic referenced

imagery. Translated through the medium of video I use cinema and poetic imagery to produce an

 abstract visual story.

 

 Nadya Primak:

 

Bio: Nadya Primak is currently halfway through her senior year of college at Oberlin majoring in

Visual Arts (with a concentration in Computer Science) and Russian. She was born in Krasnoyarsk, Russia,

but her family moved to the United States when she was four years old. Since then she has lived in several

different states and had the privilege of traveling back to her place of birth and elsewhere abroad. The

 internet and new media was what kept her sane when she didn't know where to call home and, because

 of its ever changing nature, she doubts she will ever tire of it.

 

Karl Baumann:

 

 

 

 

 Karl Baumann is a digital artist, filmmaker, and scholar. His current work explores immersive and mobile cinema to

navigate the complex layers of urban spaces. After completing an MFA in Digital Arts and New Media (DANM) at UC Santa

Cruz, Karl taught media literacy with the Boys and Girls Club and participated heavily in Occupy Oakland. In addition to

his locative and playable media projects, Karl has produced multiple feature documentaries and experimental videos,

synopsis

Animation exploring the visual culture of video games and the spread of popular gif files. The imagery of

Magritte's surrealist paintings gives a working platform for modular elements and texture, thus sharing, the action

with layers that emulate lo-fi quality and bug / glitch images of early computer machines.
