XX.XX.2020 is an abstract and symbolic film with movement, tempo, colours and light. It has a threatening and mysterious atmosphere with unknown moving objects, which come nearer and move further away. The music of Renè Munoz Còrdova supports the atmosphere in the world in the year 2020. Like corona virus comes and goes, people have to avoid other people: near and far away… Eija Temisevä.
Purple Toon/Tune- Researched and generated during an experimental media residency at Signal Culture, Owego, New York and completed at Oolite Arts takeover at Anderson Ranch Art Center, February and March 2020. Barron Sherer
Situs inversus viscerum totalis -This video is part of “Body of Evidence”, a multi-medium exhibition inspired by the impact of art on health held at the Adelaide Convention Centre 30 May – 1 July, 2016 featuring John Blines, Gina Czarnecki & The Australian Dance Theatre, Meg Cowell, Ian Gibbins,
Naomi Hunter, Cheryl Hutchens, Hans Kreiner, Kerryn Levy, Deborah Prior, Damien Shen, Angela Valamanesh & Thomas Yeend. Curated by Carollyn Kavanagh.
Situs Inversus Viscerum Totalis is a rare birth abnormality in which the positions of the internal organs are reversed. Sometimes, the internal organs are duplicated in mirror image, which is fatal. This video
takes those ideas to generate mirror-symmetrical images derived from Ian’s videos of living cells, his body, and the Adelaide Convention Centre. The soundtrack is made from sounds recorded at the Convention Centre. The quotes come from a well-known human embryology textbook. A different
version of the video was projected onto the windows of the Convention Centre. Ian Gibbins.
Interferences (1av3)- Interferences have consumed and lived a long time in our cohabitation with television and monitors, two dry blows to signal and tuning failures, breakdowns, maybe the dog has bitten the cable, … and subsequently manufactured interference, found, provoked, are part of our
audiovisual culture. We resume the discourse initiated in the early eighties and we have no choice but to declare again that the interference is beautiful. Luis Carlos Rodriquez.
Ring – Angelina Voskopoulos. Some of my artwork over the past years has been focused on ‘minimal movement’. My view regarding the power of that which is minimal has been reinforced by research, the application of ideas and the results from previous research. The movement of a unit is considered to be that which drives all things. I don’t wish to lead anyone to wonder about the physical world and its laws or create religious questions regarding God and creation. The project is centred on Man and his inner world. That which I call minimal movement, is the internal movement, internal action or intensity and how everything doesn’t necessarily have to entail external action. Even total lack of movement indicates internal intensities, conflicts, disputes and concerns.
I Touched The Digital Film (Or I touched the digital photography) is a craftworks series contrast against the digital flow of the images. The canvas is the scanner, the light has been produced with the movement of the hand
and the objects, getting the visual exhibition of the noise produced by the same objects set up. The hands grow up like a red rose on paper (acrylic painting on the print scanner) to remember the big man of Germano Celant and the techniques introduced by Georges Méliès. The sound takes out the traditional language and translate it in Morse International Code, making it like a mono sound with the visual effects of the noises ambient. Pasquale Palladino
Twisted-Film leader, twisted, inside out/ Upside down. Matt Helme.
Silent Edge is a work that questions vision itself. A reflection on the concept of limit, and the relationship between horizontal, vertical space, visible/invisible. Enzo Cillo.
