In the beginning, there were your words, which you wrote me to initiate the pictures to do, far away, alone, down there in Seville and Andalusia. Then, after a first silent editing... the film would at last find its final form, an intimate essay and standing between your voice, a selection of Antonio Gamoneda's poems, to listen, and my pictures.

So I had the idea of producing a series of romantic paintings, a pictorial stroll in Paris, a wandering aimlessly displayed, if not to provide a projection support to inner visions, movements of interiority confronted to the current means and technical exchanges and jetable communications, so finally the mobile phone which is the best avatar, an icon of our endless consumption? I do not know if my intentions are very clear, but the images speak for themselves and with less verbiage?

Anoxi: la synthèse
6mn32   color   dolby stereo   2009   Canada
de Pavitra Wickramasinghe
production : Perte de Signal
self-distribution
Remix of a triptych produced over 4 years, the work assemble sounds and visuals synthesis in a narrative composition on the suffocation caused by the lack of oxygen. Theorists of digital art have discussed the similarity of precinematic and postcinematic practices (such as early chronophotograhy and Quicktime video clips). The abstractions created by Robin Dupuis, such as Anoxi, can be understood as examining this connection in an aesthetic manner, but following and creating new forms and rhythms with the possibilites of the digital instrument. In Anoxi the elements in the picture are melting into new forms, separating and coming together in continuous transformation and variation. - Mika Taanila, Avanto, Helsinki

de Danielle Raymond
self-production

Memories made up of family archives, radio archives of Expo 67 and the voice of a woman trying to remember the place, atmosphere and context. In a space that feels domestic, a fireplace and sofa serve as backdrop for different portraits, the reunion of two sisters and a parade of hats. Outside, a crack in a wall reveals a picnic lunch. Images are captured through a 'recorder-projector', a device created by the artist.

A video of a handcuffed blindfolded man detained by soldiers on the street, and dreamlike images of abstract shapes and patterns in rocks and water, are synthesised by a distortion of the video signal, creating unsettling confusion and linkage between the tragic and the poetic, and between different uses of the sense of vision.

It grew up as a collaboration between two artists: Luis Fernandes and Daria Baiocchi. Music is straight connected to images.

A video about visual languages overlaid by dreams and magnetic rushes covered by an inception on this idyllic mirror, featured on the landscape of reality…

Black Salt Water Elegy
16mn   b/w   dolby stereo   2010   Canada
de Solomon Nagler
self-production
self-distribution
A short film that weaves together original and archival material to create an ethereal narrative texture, "Black Saltwater Elegy" intimately links the discordant threads of a popular history of dispossession (Africville) with the solitude of its protagonist's graveyard-shift fantasies. After opening with disquieting archival footage of the demolition of Africville, the film shifts to an austere observational portrait. A palatable sense of the duration of midnight work slowly shifts into subtle gestures that hint towards choreographed events. Eventually, a breech occurs as the protagonist fuses with an emergent dreamscape, where ruined landscapes and the resurrection of an extinct community intertwine. Using the protagonist's disembodied point of view, the audience floats above a reconstructed Africville, one forever present, nesting in a bed of saltwater fog.

This video is about symmetry. First, the subject matter is symmetrical: the Capitol Plaza in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

A breathless body, articulated through a surgical dissection of time. Like a collection of fragments, a being grown increasingly fractured—likely as it searches for itself, for the moments it is made of. Then the intensity of the cry, until the pain is exhausted. An act of desperation, pulverized, until man finally becomes machine, a mechanical monster. And yet, the universe stays put.

Starting from 50 reels of 8mm and super8 film recovered in L’Aquila (Italy) and nearby towns after the earthquake of 6 April 2009, I tried to describe the disaster of earthquake to reach a general reflection on memory and its stratification. Through the alternation, the overlapping, the merging of private images of family life with dramatic images of the same places after the earthquake, the city becomes a metaphor of the fragility of memory.

This video is a study of various "futuristic" edifices altered slightly in video software: a contemporary cargo ship, various airport terminals, the Auckland Sky Tower and the Seattle Space Needle.

We would either be living in George Jetson elevated homes (modelled in part on the 1962 Seattle Space needle)… or if we survived an expected nuclear war, we’d be living in a post-apocalyptic nuclear winter.

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.

Based on the film "Les parapluies de Cherbourg" by Jacques Demy (1964) an audiovisual composition evolved. It reduces the narrative elements of the original movie by turning short sequences into transformative loops and transforming it into a rhythmic composition. In synchronized beats, the sampling of the sound goes along with the visual rhythm of the video. The actors look like virtual singing sculptures and some kind of a grammar of the movie’s single parts can be examined.

"memoriesofasovietsoldier" is a video art work that combines manipulated archive film footage(from "Battle of Russia"), original shootings and special effects. This work treats about reactivation of memories of a person( in this case a soviet soldier ). I’m very interesting in mental process concerning memories flow, above all the way we associated particular images to specific sounds or musics. With this work I try to let go the viewer into the Hyppocampus of a soviet soldier for some minutes. All non originally videos and musics are taken from www.archive.org under creative commons license( public domain ). Other sounds are recorded and manipulated by myself. Editing video and sound are made by myself. The Hyppocampus at the beginning of the video is a little organic sculpture that I made.

This movie was produced as part of a co-creation with the dancer Dimitri Tsiapkinis. He wrote the solo "Delirium Tremens", I realize "Because, I", we work around the same questions. My movie examines the relationship between oneself and the others, attachment and detachment from bodies, the irreducible otherness that separates us and yet defined the social and intimate’s scope of what we are. The image is taken as a material from which the movie is shaped. Movie of collages, assemblages, where narration predates less and less to direct experimentation of shooting-editing. Do not tell a story in a linear fashion but take an idea and turn around.

The film was shot by hand-held camera, and is all in subjective takes. The main "character" in the film is light. Light reveals characters and objects, without care for the composition of the shot or using artificial lighting. Simultaneously with the shooting of the refraction of light, the spreading – ringing of sound is recorded. And the most important – silence, because in the wasteland, on that "island" with no visible boundary between the sky and the earth, in that prison with no fences, silence is louder than the noise of any city.

de Guli Silberstein
self-production
self-distribution
Composed from fragments of reality captured by a mobile phone and a home digital video camcorder, the video contains a surreal journey into ‘non-places’ of childhood in which an older self is following a younger self, re-acquiring a sense of empowerment and quietness. The glitches and imperfections of image and sound suggest a relation between digital form and human perception.

Who are they? Towards where do they walk? Towards a sure death, in the heart of the nonsense. Hypnotic uneasiness, the sound of the knell or the sound of the little death?

In homage to Dada, " the Da ", anagram of " death ", is a strange and dreamlike universe, tinted with fear and with incomprehension, a mental universe where the spatiotemporal marks lose all their rationality.
