  • Wolfgang Lehmann - Image of myself as act; Study No.2 (2002-03)

    Selbstbildnis als Akt; Studie Nr.2 / Image of myself as act; Study No.2
    A film by Wolfgang Lehmann (7 min., 42, b/w & colour, 16mm, Germany 2002-03)

    I love signs of transience such as patina, scratches and age; they are traces of history and existence in pictures. They are signals for irreversible time. There are no longer any negatives of the original footage because all the material was combined to form a whole during editing. The images on the screen are the result of the extremely short sequences of shots, as a rule in two or three frames. The >smudge< is anything but a reduction of the image; on the contrary, as a result the pictures gain a degree of diversity and richness. The marks where the film is spliced was something that excited me even in the >classics< of film history, and here this has been taken consciously to the extreme by me. What interests me is not the analysis of the material but rather the very conscious way of dealing with the aesthetics of it. The nakedness of the body is not the most essential aspect of the film. Nakedness is something natural, no more and no less. The desire to work with material, the rhythm of the images, the editing and assembling of the pictures, the light and the colours - these are the real self-portrait because it is in these that I find my passion for creating. - Wolfgang Lehmann

  • Michael Woods - Disney World (2010)

    The representation of being in motion picture is the direct result of an inflated super ego, a facade that coats the real in an illusion of impenetrable madness and gives birth to the Super Id. We are in an inorganic suspension by which we must posit nothingness onto the world in order to understand ourselves as being. It is this nothingness that we project, from the screens in Hollywood to the streets of New York City, that will lead to an inevitable collapse of the systems of meaning as they fall pray to the cancer of representation.

    We are now in the Warholian mode of being, and the avant-garde has not reacted against the banality that now coats our existence.

    Everything is now Disney World.

  • Alberto Cabrera Bernal - Perforaciones (2009)

    Alberto Cabrera Bernal - Perforaciones (2009)Cinema made out of the minimum and essential: light, its projection and a violated media (black film obtained from processing unexposed colour footage). After "Cada cuatro fotogramas" (Every four frames), the approach to 'negative' filmmaking continues, building by demolition, the film showing us what survives the physical removal of any of its parts. The image is made of points of light on the verge of disintegration, holes that pierce a surface, the celluloid, giving us a compulsive drip of frayed forms that will make us think of the outbreak of the screen. The sounds of Mattin, cracked, shrill, lacerating trebles, stick to the images with a maximum relevance. From the first frame, the frontality of the movie avoids complacencies of any kind with the viewer, forcing him to question the resistance of his listening and his eyes.

  • Maximilian Le Cain - Ten Pieces of Video for Internet (2009)

    For some time now people have been quizzing me about any possible intentions I might have of putting some of my work online. I've remained reticent about doing so and at least part of this reticence stems from a real interest in the nature of online viewing. In other words, I wanted to create something specific for the internet rather than simply using it as an inferior vehicle for work best seen otherwise.

    So, that's what I've gone and done. In fact, it's even more specific than internet-only work; it's especially designed for watching through YouTube, that glorious, terrifying audiovisual sewer.
