ECVP screenings and exhibitions have been taking place in various countries since June 2008, such as Sweden, USA, Greece, Canada, Brazil, Australia and South Africa. The second volume of the project with 12 new videos has just been released in October 2009 in Sweden.

Juliana Monachesi writes:
“The Exquisite Corpse Video Project, having embraced random and chaotic processes, departs from the Dadaist method of creation. Each artist responds to the ten seconds of video sent by the previous artist with one minute of his own, from which he sends the last ten seconds to the next artist. The result is video that runs about ten minutes. The power of a video made by twenty hands surpasses the current vogue of the collective practices in the visual arts. Notably, the artists involved in this project each have a “solo” career, participating in important festivals and exhibitions worldwide. Beyond emerging as a new “collective,” the ECVP experience distinguishes itself by gambling on the possibilities of sharing and creating through the platform of decentralized social networks that have spread through the world wide web. And it offers an aesthetic answer to the mayhem of audiovisual content jamming the same www by showing that there is intelligent life on the You Tube channels.”

My latest project is an animation Video for the band D Numbers’ song “Ghost Talk” from their soon to be released album “Onda”. It started out as a few ideas, sketches, and a song. I collaborated with Nick Toll, another visual artist for creative input. The process was experimental in several ways, the imagery and storyline was not thought out in advance, but was a result of the process of giving life to and creating a world from a collection of ideas. So it was more connecting the dots than traveling in a straight line.
