“Cinemetrics is the thesis project of Frederic Brodbeck‘s at
the Royal Academy of Arts (KABK), Den Haag. It aims to create a visual
“fingerprint” for film using the editing structure, color, speech and
motion. Different characteristics are analysed using python and openCV,
and data visualised using a custom Processing application. This allows
films to be interpreted or compared side by side.” – from

“pieces where I am looking into walls
with a thermal camera (seeing the heat
of the different materials) and then
reproducing the infrared version of the
wall on top of our visible spectrum.
the pieces are made with sprayed tempera
paint which moves over whatever happens
to be in the space that I am looking at.” – lance winn

White Wall Tehran (still)
The video work “White Wall Tehran” results from a trip to Iran in
January 2007. On the streets in Tehran I was stopped by the Iranian
revolution guards, because I had been filming them with my videocamera.
They erased 27 seconds of my video by filming the white inner wall of
their headquarters. The re-recording only is producing the white
imagery, that is showing nothing, but at the same time is consisting of
various sound fragments: a radio transceiver, somebody stirring his
coffee, music playing.


i have a show up until june 4th at Oboro gallery!

Because it keeps the reader’s place in various texts, it’s considered an early prototype of the World Wide Web.” – via futilitycloset

“Acconci set himself the task of walking a continuous line down a street,
holding a camera aimed away from him, ready to shoot. He tried not to
blink. Each time he did, he snapped a photo.”

“Here everybody was waiting for the day when a 100 years would have
passed and the
house would be opened once again. It is odd how the
collective memory of a place never dies.”

“‘The Clock’ is constructed out of moments in cinema when time is
expressed or when a character interacts with a clock, watch or just a
particular time of day. Marclay has excerpted thousands of these
fragments and edited them so that they flow in real time. While ‘The
Clock’ examines how time, plot and duration are depicted in cinema, the
video is also a working timepiece that is synchronised to the local time
zone. At any moment, the viewer can look at the work and use it to tell
the time.”

“Talk to me is a physical Web radio. It connects to news Web sites and
reads them out loud using text-to-speech software in a monotone voice.”

“Working with astronomers from the Mauna Kea Volcano telescope, an
image of ‘ancient darkness’

was transmitted on New York television station MNN. Broadcast
for one minute, it revealed

darkness from the furthest point of the observed universe, 13.2
billion years ago, shortly

after the Big Bang and before Earth existed, when stars,
galaxies and the first light began to form.”
