Series: Video without-camera, reinterpreting "camera-world" Berkeley theory "to be is to be perceived".

Overlaying the gaze open to the world with the actions of the man who flees from being perceived.

A place super charged by our shared past. microstructures in the light identified with my memories of this place, the people, the events and their connection to the present. Sounds of the wind. the gentle foraging of chickens. playful guitar practicing by my daughter lexie sitting beside me. If this place and memory and time have an iridescence, could I find a way to preserve it eyes left; the garden. Eyes right; the chickens. eyes forward; lexie and the guitar. “it’s a film!,” I exclaimed and I leapt to my feet to find my bolex camera. wind the camera, shoot left. wind the camera, shoot right. wind the camera, shoot forward. a single 100ft roll shot in that moment. Hand processed and toned on that afternoon. a bright moment that could have been lost forever brought back to life by a projector bulb in the barn that evening. a moment i can hold in my hand.

Ephemeralization is not the answer maybe, but this ephemeral symbol, the butterfly, stands for self-organizing, self-regulated, self-sufficient - but never fixed or rigid - systems in nature, that can help us to reimagine an ecological approach.

The shots extracted from these films are kept at its original length and the artist argued that while working on such a critical subject, keeping the integrity of the shot is the least he can do, in a moral way.

“Dakhla” reflects on the concept of uncertainty and the imprecision of a changing reality as an ever-present confrontation. Through a narrative that describes a metaphoric trip to the middle of the sea between two distant points on the same latitude to see life in perspective, representations of the ephemeral and unpredictable emphasize on the idea of a future that feeds off chance and speculation. This work dwells on questioning how uncertainty conditions thought, thus generating new possibilities for the future and reflecting on the probability of a change of course of the past.

We were asked to write and interpret a demonic monologue digging into some personal anecdotes. My own was pretty cathartic. Sources of inspiration were Innocenzo Spinazzi’s marble statue, La Religione aka La Velata, now at GAM museum and Cesare Lombroso, the Museum of Criminal Anthropology and one of his seminal texts, The criminal woman: the prostitute, the normal woman (1893). Some effects processed in the US, during a residency at Signal Culture.

"Deux femmes (for Man Ray)" creates a dialogue with Man Ray’s porno footage that was found in his atelier after his death in a canister titled “Deux Femmes”, shot in 1937. Man Ray’s preoccupation with the female body as sculpture and the imminence of amateur pornography today, were what necessitated a dialogue to me. Adhering to his particular compositions and actions within them, I collected matching shots from online amateur pornos. Then I printed the frames, and presented them in the video as a paper stack. This unhurried process of paper stacking slows down the otherwise speedy porn media consumption and allows us to examine the female body as sculpture today.

A filmmaker and a dancer meet in the same location twice a day - once in the early morning, once in the late afternoon - for five consecutive days. They create a series of ten in-camera 16mm films: a piece that maps the progression of improvised dance and cinematography and their collaborative relationship. Both artists untether their training in premeditated construction and make, act, compose, move, see, and interact in the moment. Can the camera act as a dynamic partner, more than simply a new "stage" or documenting device for the dancer? Can the dancer be more than a subject embedded within the frame and altered by the cut?

by Di Hu
self-production
self-distribution
This video is an analytical montage of shots extracted from more than 60 films from the Chinese Cultural Revolution period. It exclusively studies the moments of the interpellation of the Ideology (Louis Althusser) which are represented physically by music, words, gazes, gestures and situations found in these films. I keep every shot at its original length because the shot is the minimal unit of the cinema. When we work on such a critical subject, keeping the integrity of the shot is the least we can do, in a moral way. Strictly speaking, Ecstasy does not lend itself to a specific synopsis, but this does not mean that there is nothing to look at in it. The multiple symbols and meanings extracted from a wide range of shots make up the narratives found in this video: The resemblance of the music in different films, the dramatic gazes with catchlights (like they are absorbed by an overwhelming feeling of great excitement, where the title Ecstasy comes from), the repetition of the words (like ‘Mao Zhuxi’, Chairman Mao), the robotic gestures (raising one’s head, turning around), the faces with tears, the symbolic objects which reincarnate the transmission of ecstasy (like needle, spanner and apple) and the exaggerated film techniques (close-up, zoom in). This video is one of a series of videos and they are not only reexaminations of the cinema of that period but also reflections of history as told through cinema.

Rise into being, mature, perish – Fruit tells a creation story. As the animated short film unfolds, it brings forth a play of shapes illustrating the dialog between two mythological forces – the West and the East. In it the vibrating entities of black and white are constantly being split apart and reconciled by red, in a playful and dramatic choreography of forms and figures. The journey is narrated in three parts which function like three rooms that are being crossed. In the first room of this triptych the viewer dives into a cosmos of inorganic, dead matter with astronomic dimensions and simple shapes that oscillate. The second room produces living creatures that exist in cycles of eating and mating. In the third room dwells the human being, incessantly striving, searching, erring. A plant bearing leaves, flowers and a ripening fruit is the recurring motif that runs throughout the entire short film. The polar opposites, black and white, are complemented by the omnipresence of red. As the events progress, they begin to form cyclic patterns. Yet the structure of the story as a whole remains linear. A world awakens, unfurls into a pulsating multiform variety of creatures, and dies once it has completed its course. Fruit reveals itself to be the answer to its own question, an answer that seeks meaning – the Fruit, that nourishes human existence.

The first story describes the relationship between different genders, which happens on grass field. The second is a lesbian story, it happens on a sea shore. The last story is about self-attraction, which happens in a rainy day. The whole story is about a woman "eats" herself at the end. It is like a long poetry.

Study of the face like landscape, screen of the emotions, metaphor of the passage of time and the contradictions that nest in the construction of me. The light as matter of the form, of what the eye sees and does not sees. Direct to the perceptions broken down the given thing like real. Game of shades talking in a mute alphabet on the identity and your fragility. In a world in which the social structure is cracked, where the communication has developed into a game of abalorios and the poetry looks again for your horizon.

With the advent of the DSM-5 (classification of mental disorders) and a tendency of psychiatry to think of the illness in terms of symptoms rather than focusing on the human point of view, the Artaud centre poses as an alternative.

Solastalgia is a concept created by environmental philosopher Glenn Albrecht to define a feeling of unease tied to the upheavals and mutations we are experiencing today. It is the homesickness we may feel when we are still at home, but our familiar surroundings have grown strange to us. Nowadays, this state of loss of bearings seems to become generalized under the pressure of heightened development. In the Anthropocene Era, affected as we are by the rising world population, climate change, and the transformation of our ecosystems, this may be a form of latent distress that haunts us all.

Opposing forces surround us. We live in constant contrast. A movement, a flow, a dynamic blend of dual aspects. There are times to follow and times to lead; moments to act and moments to be still. Things are never static. We are not part of an exact equation, but of an evolving rhythm. When we create sparks, a fire starts, and life begins.

The work uses the complete transcribed text of the June 2014 orientation video message as delivered from then Australian Government Immigration Minister Scott Morrison. This "message" was played to detained refugees on Nairu and Manus Island in their attempt to arrive to Australia by boat and subsequent capture and detainment. The similarities of our shared namesake are obvious - this work takes the perhaps humorous coincidence and instead looks to provoke and question notions of privilege, representation and authority. The work acts as a broader portraiture of national identity - when the individual, the politician is removed from the original context does it also represent all Australians as the words are representative of Government mandate? The karaoke styled treatment towards the text offers a visual counterpoint - evoking a paradise filled with hope and burgeoning safe shore - as if in a dream.

“The origin of stones” questions the ideals of the past and their validity in the present through the decay and fall of monuments built to preserve a historic memory. With a text based on a debate that puts in doubt the efficiency of a scale used to document the proportion and appearance of archaeological remains, this work looks to ruins as elements of live content linked to the present and emphasizes the powerful yet fragile nature of the narratives of history. Thus, it mirrors the impossibility to imagine the promises of a future on the ruins of the recent past, representing in this way a model of a fallen utopia.

42mn   color   stereo   2015   Austria
by Jennifer Mattes
self-production
distribution : sixpackfilm
Trading stories is in search of clues and tells one or several stories about storytelling and about love. But trading story is no love story. Based on a journey from Hamburg to Qindao in 1905 from the director’s great grandfather, she followed his traces embarking on a containership. Today the route is an important trade lane. Therefore the filmed material is set in a trading context. But in search of the clues the topic evolves sideways into found footage fragments and texts. The story can only be told by using these “sideways” and thus develops into an odyssey on the ocean of symbols, images and feelings. In a collage of the journey’s documentary graphical material, found footage from the internet and films as well as own lyrics and texts from other sources, dimensions and assumed consequences of a globalized, technological and networked world are dealt with on the platform of feelings. The containership’s cargo or load is the cargo and load of the story and all stories as well as the one of love. It becomes the metaphor for the unconscious, a representative of a society’s body, a symbol for the new beginning and the venture of life reflecting its tensions, ambivalences and contradictions. And ambivalence was already the archetype of the ship.

by Ana Barroso
self-production
self-distribution
This film was shot in The Monastery of Batalha, a world heritage site that is a wonderful piece of architecture, still unfinished and an inspirational locus for filming as a reflection of moving images. The film happens in the threshold between the material and the intangible as it asks for the viewer's unique perception and emotional engagement with what is (not) happening in the narrative. The video is at odds with the tendencies in video art and it deals mostly with time, a slow time that gets the viewer deep into images and possible meanings and feelings. The non- linear narrative breaks into fragments but to evoke the imaginary, something that moves us but we can't necessarily grasp and explain. In a way, it's a metaphysical experience as well and not a film to excite senses and provoke stimuli in a fast pace. Technology brings up this paradox too: the most contemporary can also be the most anachronic object as it never ends or closes meanings. Each viewer can create his own path as he /she creates his own time for meditation and enlightenment. The musical score was built to evoke both worlds, one as the reflection of the other: the surface and the deep in kind of sound and image alchemy. Loops are horizontal (moving images) and vertical (perception/ film and viewer relationship) expansions of subjectivity and experience.

"The mysterious stirs a reaction: an “ah!” This “ah!” is not an “ah ha!” or “Eureka” — that is, an exclamation of discovering an answer. The “ah!” response to mystery is more a dumbfounded recognition and appreciation of an inexplicable power or presence. For Shinto, though, the point is to accept the awesome as part of the world in which we live. To deny or try to eradicate the wondrous mystery is no less than to run away from home." - Shinto: The Way Home, Thomas Kasulis

The work displays light sources acting in a sort of nocturnal forest; the light shakes the branches and fragments of a sculpture laid on the ground. To achieve it, I began from a static shot, slowly going towards a fragmentation of the the image itself through the light's game. My main interest is on the latency created by the movement of the light, the moments ruled by shadow, when everything is invisible.

Yellow tea cup: refugees at sea records contemporary news footage projected into my immigrant grandmother’s vintage tea cup. The cup becomes a window onto the world, bringing world events closer to home, while evoking the tensions and intersections between private and public, past and present, order and chaos. The contextualizing frame of the tea cup acknowledges the filter of individual experience through which our perceptions are shaped, as we try to comprehend the human dimension of reported events.

"Timeless"... We live in a restless world, which is changing faster than ever. What was true yesterday is already meaningless today. Irena Paskali is seeking in her work "Timeless" for the never changing condition of mankind, the essence of human being. On the one hand, it is the human quest for meaning and wisdom, emblematised by the apple. The little girl, standing on the edge of a small lake, still in the need to find her way into life. Secondly, it is the spirituality of man, who strives for transcendence - depicted by the scenes around the historic center of Ohrid, Jerusalem, the Dome of the Rock, Golgatha - it is also about loneliness and being abandoned, impressive staged through the woman, whose face is not visible - and her slow steps upwards the stone stairs.

—O| is a triptych of abstract animation loops. This work takes inspiration from Wayuu patterns and transposes them into a contemporary moving image context. A forever-expanding, mandalic circular structure (O), symbolising the universe, is flanked on one side by moving vertical patterns (|) which stand for rain, growth and life, and on the other side by horizontal patterns (—), symbolising earth, drought, and death.
