Khronos Projector

The Khronos Projector — by Alvaro Cassinelli — is an interactive-art installation allowing people to explore pre-recorded movie content in an entirely new way. A classic video-tape allows a simple control of the reproducing process (stop, backward, forward, and elementary control on the reproduction speed). Modern digital players add little more than the possibility to perform random temporal jumps between image frames.

The goal of the Khronos Projector is to go beyond these forms of exclusive temporal control, by giving the user an entirely new dimension to play with: by touching the projection screen, the user is able to send parts of the image forward or backwards in time. By actually touching a deformable projection screen, shaking it or curling it, separate “islands of time” as well as “temporal waves” are created within the visible frame. This is done by interactively reshaping a two-dimensional spatio-temporal surface that “cuts” the spatio-temporal volume of data generated by a movie. Continue reading

Expanded Cinema: Activating the Space of Reception [uk London]

Expanded Cinema: Activating the Space of Reception :: April 17 – 19, 2009 :: Tate Modern.

Featuring lectures, discussions, performances, projections and installations, this major international conference presents a critical appraisal of an expanding field of film and video art from multi-screen, immersive, performance- based live-projections through to interactive, digital and virtual reality multi-media events.

Coined in the mid-1960s by Stan VanDerBeek, but with its origins in the experiments of early twentieth century avant-garde filmmaking, media-technologies and performance art, the term Expanded Cinema identifies a film and video practice which activates the live context of watching, transforming cinema’s historical and cultural ‘architectures of reception’ into sites of cinematic experience that are heterogeneous, performative and non-determined.

Live Stage: Gregory Chatonsky [ca Montreal]

Flußgeist by Gregory Chatonsky :: until March 21, 2009 :: Artist Talk: February 28; 2:00 pm :: OBORO, 4001, rue Berri, local 301, Montreal, Canada.

Flußgeist is a series of works inspired by the concept of Zeitgeist. Strangely, industries have quite intuitively appropriated this notion to refer to pages giving access to flux suspension, i.e., for Google, words with the most searches during a year. Flußgeist is based on the principle that what is called Web 2.0 is not simply a marketing discourse, but the first industry that feeds on the existence of each and every individual, through sites such as flikr, facebook and youtube.

“The Fifth Day” by Carlo Zanni

The Fifth Day — by Carlo Zanni — is a sequence of ten pictures showing a taxi ride, edited as a slide show on music by Kazimir Boyle. These photos, taken in Alexandria, are ever changing networked stills because linked to critical data describing the political and cultural status of Egypt. Here, Egypt works as a metaphor to investigate topical subjects for the so called “Middle East” aiming for a comparison with the audience’s birth/living country.

Data, retrieved from the Internet and transforming the aesthetics of the photos, can be: the Proportion of seats held by women in national parliament (photo #2), the Corruption Perceptions (CPI) (photo #4), the Literacy rates in adult female and male (ages 15 and above) (photo #7), just to name a few.

Live Stage: Biren + Hoberman [us Los Angeles]

Automata and The Velaslavasay Panorama present: All That Passes Before You, Already in Ruins by Jordan Biren and Denial Clinic by Perry Hoberman :: December 13, 2008; 8:00 – 11:00 pm :: The Velaslavasay Panorama, 1122 West 24th Street, Los Angeles, CA.

Jordan Biren changes course for his new work, All That Passes Before You, Already in Ruins, adding a live film performance to his spectral narrative of transient landscapes, characters and time, melodramatically moving in the shadows of glistening cinematic moments.

Perry Hoberman continues his ill-advised foray as a singer/songwriter, presenting Denial Clinic, a live performance with 3D projection, drawings and songs, chronicling various tales of frustration, loss and self-deception. Continue reading

Reblogged Flussgeist & Ambient Intimacy

I’ve been playing around with various twitter mashups, tools and toys lately, and I just had to give this one a quick mention. Unusually for me, I am about to talk about some art…

Gregory Chatonsky’s work L’attente/The Waiting (warning, Flash-heavy), part of a series called “Flußgeist”, the “spirit of the flow”, mashes up twitter posts with Flickr photos whose tags match keywords in the tweets, along with an ambient soundtrack (pulling in data from Odeo) and video footage of urban pedestrians waiting at the lights, lost in thought, walking, or just standing around.

The overall effect is quiet and beautiful, of course, and it’s a nice comment on the ambient intimacy we are learning to associate with twitter. Continue reading

Live Stage: Toni Dove: Spectropia [us Troy, NY]

Toni Dove: Spectropia :: November 13, 2008; 8:00 pm :: EMPAC Theater, 110 8th street, EMPAC Building, Troy, New York.

Spectropia is a highly imaginative live-mix cinema event, a “scratchable” movie performed by video DJs playing a movie “instrument”. Toni Dove’s sci-fi hybrid, features time travel, telepathy, and elements of film noir in a drama set in England, 2099 and in New York City, 1931, following the Great Crash. Live performers orchestrate onscreen characters through an original mix of film, performance and a unique system of motion sensing that serves as a cinematic instrument, creating a narrative form that is part video game, part feature film, and part VJ mashing. The audience sees through characters’ eyes, hears their interior thoughts, and even talks with characters via Dove and her co-performer, R. Luke DuBois, in a post show Q&A.
