When facing the inevitability of losing my hair -my “feminine worth”- for neurosurgery, I decided to take action into my own hands. I aimed to take back my worth, say goodbye, and grasp the last bits of control I had before leaving my neurological fate up to the surgeons.

Relation/Resistance

Nikola Dabic 

Serb Republic, Bosnia and Herzegovina

(2min 11 sec)

Connected via rope which symbolize raw relation and at the same time contraposition between two bodies/artists, they manage to show a law of nature. Linked under the given circumstances, two living beings intersecting their strength in different directions representing different intentions, needs and dreams. The relation which is happening between them is a synonym for unlimited impact between every living beings in the world. Energy versus energy, sometimes innocent game and sometimes fight for a bare life. Universal game of coincidences which are dictating our lives without a mercy. This work shows fascination and obsession with relations and vibrations between two different lives.

An otherworldly walk into and out of the landscape in duplicate, the Doppleganger out of synch, a glitch in the technological sublime, that serves to create collages, dreamscapes and jarring encounters with the ebb and flow of the place. Playing on the history of the stereoscopic view of 19th century landscape photography, perspectives that challenge the

single view, the moving images move and meld, blend and mirror, mesmerize and subvert-left to right, right to left- there are absences too, that create book folds, double page spreads that move and absent the image.

Observations On News Media uses the experimental writing technique of blackout poetry and translates it from a page-based medium into an animated format.

These words were then recontextualised within the video so that they formed six statements which served to provide a broad critique of contemporary news media practices.

Sound Without Melody is White

Friedrich Andreoni

Chicago/Berlin

(53 sec)

Sound without melody is White uses the typical sound “shh” which can be translated in the phonetic range with the character ∫. The main function of this sound is to ask for silence, often used before a concert; a loud conversation between two people; or from a mother cooing her child or as a threat to quiet down. In the midst of protests and demonstrations worldwide, Andreoni shushes the Italian folk resistance song, Bella Ciao into a megaphone. A shush, without melody, becomes a white noise. All that remains is the tactful rhythm of the resistance.

Martial Law, 2020, Statement

The year 2020, (and 2021 so far), was seemingly fictional; issues multiplied, iintensified, and gained attention. On top of enduring a global pandemic, we are still experiencing substantial steps backward in the fight against racism. We’ve seen endless human rights violations as well as our democracy being threated. Amidst this constant influx of bad news, it becomes increasingly difficult and important to avoid

detachment. With my datamoshes I aim to help viewers make emotional connections with its contents to help them retain the mass of events. Reflection is a crucial step if we are to intervene the present moment and preserve its memory for future history.

My audio datamoshes are MP3’s pulled from collected videos. First, they are loaded into Audacity then converted to a RAW file and opened in Photoshop. The visually represented RAW data appears as the static you see in the paired image. From here, I visually alter the image which disrupts and destroys the digital code causing the distortions you hear. Martial Law responds to our lost sensitivity to the dangerous

statements Trump made on a regular basis. By datamoshing the audio of his statement, I make it sound as scary as it should, and metaphorically destroy his words.


 

BOGUE 

Santiago Echeverry

(3 min 28 sec)

Tampa/Fort Lauderdale, FL

Cw: mention of crippled

The House of Tupamaras is a group of Voguing performers based in Bogota, Colombia. They are professionally trained dancers that chose to break from the norm and explore the queerness of their bodies and their everyday self-expressions to turn their art form into a political tool, questioning the double standards of Colombian society. They create impromptu happenings, choreographed dances, kiki balls, etc., and have performed on stage with renowned groups such as Pussy Riot, among others. This series of prints and videos seeks to capture the Tupamaras' attitude, athletic musculature, and spunky personalities. The series of volumetric portraits, that isolate spatially the dancers and create a baroque-like atmosphere, are captured in real time with the Kinect sensor, using custom Java code in Processing 3.0, written by the artist. Photoshop is used for color correction and sizing purposes, without any additional filters. Each individual image, captured in HD at 12 to 16 frames per second, composes longer animated still frame sequences, that are consequently edited into the experimental video component of the series, BOGUE. Seeing Voguing as a dance duel, the original music mixes the sounds of two very famous scenes of Latino soap operas, that portray exaggerated - but absurd - female fights. Captured in real time with the Kinect volumetric sensor, and Processing 3.0,. Edited with After Effects and Premiere.

Early in the pandemic, Window Room created a virtual space to share and program art called Window Room TV. In May 2020, Window Room TV streamed events in collaboration with Living Window, a physical installation featuring 35 selected works, by 24 artists, contributing from 12 countries, programmed by em downing. 

 

Living Window projected selected submissions for a month on loop through a 4ftx5ft window projection, visible at street view.  Living Window was created for passersby--for those on their night walk; for the neighborhood; for a hyper-local audience: free, physical, contact-less public art to those who happened upon it.

 

In collaboration with Window Room TV, Living Window also existed virtually, with artist talks; multiple screenings of the entire Living Window exhibition program; and a live street view stream of the installation. the living window is a fast motion video from the street view stream that broadcast on Window Room TV as part of their physical/psychic space programming.

 

This collaboration brought together artists from around the world and gave support and inspiration to the creation of Parkhaus15.  Many of these artists have work in HERE AND THERE.

The proposal deals with an eminently characteristic trait of our current society, the desire for celebrity, or to put it differently, the desire to get out of the shadows to enter the light, sometimes even hoping to become this "light". The desire for celebrity seems to win over more and more individuals today; and this phenomenon has largely increased with the multiplication of information via social networks, reality TV, the multiplication of screens, and more generally, with all the strategies put in place by the society of the spectacle. In 1968, in the catalog of an exhibition at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm, Warhol wrote: "In the future, everyone will have the right to 15 minutes of worldwide fame. "Indeed, from now on, everyone can claim a form of celebrity if they wish. But what kind of fame is it? What for? And with what consequences? Dungeon is an animation made from photographs of photographs. The elements that make up the film come from prints found in magazines, books, and posters. These images, degraded or even torn, are marked by materiality. They were photographed before being reworked and animated.

Mesopotamian Mud: the third walk

MUD Collective 

UK (GMT), France (CET), Iraq (AST)

(30 min)

A year ago we had planned a walk together through Cambridge to undertake a communal experience of the story of an enchanted pot from the Mesopotamian Marshlands. Due to take place two days before the first UK lockdown, it was inevitably cancelled, but this story reemerged as an audio walk. Recorded remotely, as if the pot had broken into fragments, we tried to communicate from a distance, via online platforms, in constantly changing circumstances. Something else evolved from the process . . Weaving stories of this pot’s journey and the sensory connections between place, ourselves, and land, here this audio walk is presented in an expanded form, whereby the narrative elements are fragmented and the audio further abstracted into a more speculative, messy state. This new iteration is accompanied by slow, still amateur video of an encounter with mud (in its broadest conception) in each members’ locality. In this networking of elements the work suggests these interactions as a series of enmeshed encounters and performances, which ebb and flow non-linearly within themselves and between each other, across multiple simultaneous scales.

You may wish to hold or imagine holding a piece of wet earth or clay, a clay vessel or fragment of a pot.

...there is even a stage of darkness, but with an intensive propensity to clear...’ develops a recent thread in our collaboration working with themes from dissident German Marxist Ernst Bloch’s writings (see Daily into the Blue premiered at ‘Here, There and Everywhere’ at AC Institute New York, 2021). The title is taken directly from Volume 1 of Bloch’s monumental compendium of utopia and imagination, The Principle of Hope (originally published in Germany in 1959). The work itself, specifically created for Window Room X PARKHAUS15, is a freely improvised assemblage of visual and sonic materials produced through live performance drawing/collage and an exploration and re-sonation of the properties of site-specific materials and objects. It was made under Covid-19 restrictions in our studio at Eagle Works, a former steel foundry in Sheffield, UK.

This piece is about the kind of heart wrenching loves that you fall into without paying attention. I was heavily inspired by a part in a book in which a character is so heartbroken, they begin to eat rose petals. I consume my memories of love and heartbreak by eating red roses and force myself to heal from it by chugging the milk afterwards. I chose to only have a blindfold on to symbolize the vulnerable states we find ourselves when in love. This piece is dedicated to all my fellow hopeless romantics.

London

(3 min 6 sec)

glimpsey is a sequence of observational video shots, taken through windows in new residential areas in East London. Contained within the seemingly private space of their own apartments, I have recorded people performing domestic actions that are not remarkable, nor individual but similar and universal. They remain the only source of life framed in these architectural environments. The smallest of gestures are synchronised to simple sounds. The confluence of image and sound aims to dislocate the work from its original context, and dismantle it from the observational ‘here and now’ into a place that is more abstract, and focuses our attention on the formal qualities of composition and rhythm.

Video Dance 1

Sarah Taylor 

Orlando, FL

(4min 11 sec)

Video Dance I is a video work that explores the possibilities of dance that are feasible in digital space but not physical space. Through the process of randomized editing to alter my movements, I both controlled and relinquished control of my actions. However, this self-control only exists in my computer, not in real life. Using the resulting pacing from the video clips, I randomly pared each clip with a sound to add another layer of communication and to juxtapose the dance movements. I was inspired by the work of John Cage, a composer, and Merce Cunningham, a dancer and choreographer; each utilized chance procedures for their designs. The automatism of their work inspired me to automatize myself. As someone living with depression, it is extremely hard to get myself moving and doing. I spend more time dreading and coaxing than actually doing. Video Dance I acts as a digital intervention that proposes any movement and change is better than none.

Because of a corrupted government that did not care for the safety of its civilians, Puerto Ricans were left with no electricity or water for almost a year. With Handwashed Colony I wanted to translate the frustration of having to handwash clothes for months. To make an allegory of the “resources” that we got, I attempt to clean the clothes with mud, which only makes it dirtier. r/ By hiding myself in plain sight, I wanted to represent all of the women that had to deal with this repetitive, exhaustive and unfair task.

Hope Is the Thing With Feathers 

Susan Bruce

Adelaide, Australia

(5 min)

This new work is about hybridity and hope. Birds have undergone adaptive processes through time, and have adapted to changes in the environment and changes in living with humans. The use of hybridity is a metaphor for birds’ ability to adapt. I have used collage to make new birds, and for the soundtrack and I have recorded various bird songs (mainly in South Australia).

Suneimi

Matt Hall

(1 min 35 sec)

Columbia, MO

I manipulate printed images and 35 MM film, accompanied by music I make to create stop motion videos. The imperfection and expressive nature of these images creates the illusion of time passing.  Destroying the image by hand creates the representation of a fleeting moment. The images displayed echo interactions that have dissolved into the back of one’s mind, and these recollections illustrate how quickly a moment will pass and how easily our minds disrupt and distort them.

Kodachrome Syndrome

"Kodachrome Syndrome: to possess memories that aren't even yours"

"Kodachrome Syndrome" is a series of color film transparencies that are from around the world. With no context or particular order, the slide show runs through 100+ images taken from the years 1949-1983. As physical objects, these snapshots were either forgotten, passed down, or thrown away before being resurrected till now. For how we perceive and value photographic images, in many cases, we tie memory with photography. The camera, like a tool, becomes an extension of our body to capture images so that we can assess them later.

Your Body is a Spa

Sasha Goodnow

Columbia, MO

(10 mins)

A woman moves between two screens while a third screen captures her portrait. As music plays, a speaker gives prompts to rest and relax. She watches her busy mind play out frequent loops of tasks, sometimes with emotion and other times with blank observation. Her portrait vanishes and reappears as the screens move to cover her completely, dancing back and forth with which screen is presently to be focused on. Two songs from Muscle Relaxors, a project from Dank Fizzer.

A meandering fairytale tells the story of an inexperienced sentient network coming into contact with different corners of the web. Accompanying a narrative read aloud is a “performance” acted out through the operation and customization of an interactive text and symbol-based web interface.
