A bewitched spirograph traces virtual stellar systems in a de-pixelated image made up of errors, datamosh and flickers. What’s the central thread between the Muybridge’s horse and the Digital Moving Image? Technique is a short trip around virtual galaxies to reveal the still metaphysical technique’s soul (What’s the metaphysic? 1929 en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_Heidegger)
The music video “On Movement” (produced by sixt sense) is part of the earbook “Insight Outside” created by Bertil Mark. The piece “Ghop” (Bert-ill meets Michael Wollny) is one of 26 songs published, composed by diverse artists.
It is an audiovisual journey through Mexico, shot in 1999 by Stefanie Sixt on Super8. Sometimes more than a decade passes by until all elements of a project come together to one point. The poet Lydia Daher completed the piece by adapting one of her poems to the video.
Traveling means seeking and finding impressions, people and inspiration. During our lifetime we are following up ideas of what we imagine could be ideal, trying to catch a goal. If we can reach it the goal might look quite different from what we originally thought of. There are two ways of seeing it: Getting stuck at the unfulfilled or move on to take the next adventure.
Set in The Road to Calvary by Pieter Bruegel, The Mill And The Cross calls into question the dimensions of artwork and its significance in the transmission of values and meanings. Through this setting Majewski thins the distance between reality and artistic dimension and uses the figure of Brughel himself to tell his own view on the role of art as a vehicle for shared meanings and values. Through the interpretation of Rutger Hauer in the role of the famous Flemish painter.
The Mill And The Cross is part of VirniXage, the new film series dedicated to the intersection of film with video art.
Il termine “Strata” definisce una formazione geologica costituita da molteplici sedimenti di roccia, ognuno dei quali possiede caratteristiche proprie e una sua storia. Il progetto Strata, in cui rientra questo video di Quayola, consiste in una serie di film, dipinti e installazioni che investigano il legame tra l’estetica digitale contemporanea e le icone dell’arte e dell’architettura classica. Come nei processi geologici, gli strati di differenti epoche interagiscono, producendo formazioni interessanti: qui vediamo l’arte digitale ‘giocare’ con quella neoclassica del Gran Teatro di Bordeaux.
Images & Music : Jean Piché Year of production: 2010-11 1080p24 Please note: this a a single screen variant of an original 3-HD screens work. What you see here is one third of the actual image. Océanes is part of a continuing series of videomusic works exploring the aesthetic potential of particle based computer generated imagery. Analogous to granular sound processing, particle synthesis allows for the creation and control of complex materials using an large number of very small components. Sound and image coordination does not explicitely use synchresis as a discursive device but aims for an elevated relation based on metaphor and emotional detachment, as if contemplating a field of images from a distant perspective. The music for Océanes is composed by the author utilizing mostly his own music software (Cecilia). All sounds are derived from formant synthesis (FOF), yielding realistic but highly extended vocal and woodwind timbres. No samples or recordings are used. Formant synthesis is similar to granular synthesis and creates sonic matter by accumulating a succession of formantic grains. Océanes exists as a single screen theatrical version and as a triple-screen installation work.

GHOST is a study of model Natasha Poly. An investigation into the obsessive behavior of the public eye and it’s lingering effects on those chased and caught by it. The piece utilizes multiple shots, all presented head-on, giving the audience an opportunity to experience the deconstruction of an icon as it strips the beauty out of fashion.
A video projection unearths layers of habitation and activity underneath Mulberry Street’s sidewalks. Using excavation as a metaphor for the city’s past, forgotten urban dreams, and the dark space of memory and imagination, small apertures along the sidewalk open up to an animated vista.
