International Calls 2017

Project: Aco

This film was shot in The Monastery of Batalha, a world heritage site that is a wonderful piece of architecture, still unfinished and an inspirational locus for filming as a reflection of moving images. The film happens in the threshold between the material and the intangible as it asks for the viewe;s unique perception and emotional engagement with what is (not) happening in the narrative. The video is at odds with the tendencies in video art and it deals mostly with time, a slow time that gets the viewer deep into images and possible meanings and feelings. The non- linear narrative breaks into fragments but to evoke the imaginary, something that moves us but we can't necessarily grasp and explain. In a way, is a metaphysical experience as well and not a film to excite senses and provoke stimuli in a fast pace. Technology brings up this paradox too: the most contemporary can also be the most anachronic object as it never ends or closes meanings. Each viewer can create his own path as he /she creates his own time for meditation and enlightenment. The musical score was built to evoke both worlds, one as the reflection of the other: the surface and the deep in kind of sound and image alchemy. Loops are horizontal (moving images) and vertical (perception/ film and viewer relationship) expansions of subjectivity and experience.

Project: ECVP vol 5 Crisis and Utopia

The Exquisite Corpse Video Project (ECVP) is a unique video collaboration among artists from all over the world, inspired by the Surrealist creation method, the "Exquisite Corpse". Using the semi-blind, sequential method of the surrealists' game, ECVP participants create video art in response to the final ten seconds of the previous member's work. Each member is asked to incorporate these seconds into their piece, creating transitions as they please, until everyone's vision is threaded together into an instigating final "corpse". Rather than providing a unitary linear narrative, each participant maintains his/her own style, permeated by the diverse cultural backgrounds. Each individual artist interrogates, via different means, a number of genres, tendencies and strategies. Since 2008, this inspiring process of exchange among artists from around the world illuminates the possibilities of a dynamic collective creation via participatory platforms and new communication technology. The ECVP was initiated in 2008 by the Brazilian artist Kika Nicolela and it has had 5 volumes released. The most recent one, ECVP Volume#5, proposes the theme of Crisis & Utopia

Project: The kiss

A contact between two bodies. An intense sharing of information. A chemical cocktail in the brain. The Kiss is an audiovisual work that explores a simple gesture acted out between two lovers. The bodies are depicted as dispersed particles that come together to form two people kissing. The work was created using motion capture, particle systems and real time randomization techniques.

Project: Oxygen is Flowing

'Oxygen is Flowing' parte de la reflexión en torno a la pérdida de archivos digitales y el conflicto de emociones que se genera alrededor de la misma. A partir de esto, se construye un turbulento y alegórico recorrido por diferentes conceptos como la caída, la presión o el azul cielo; los cuales servirán como reflexión y reacción a la era actual, sus desasosiegos, su virtualidad y su intangibilidad.

Project: Map of love

Map of Love es un proyecto multi-plataforma que da vida al mapa dibujado por la escritora francesa Madeleine de Scudéry en 1654. El mapa activa algunos de sus lugares geográficos a través del video arte y la video danza para explorar tales espacios como "The River of Inclination", "The Lake of Indifference", "The Sea of Enmity", "Tenderness", etc. Es un proyecto en el cual han colaborado varios coreógrafos, artistas, actores, bailarines, camarógrafos, y músicos. Expande nociones de especificidad creativa y utiliza una multiplicidad de plataformas expresivas para crear canales de comunicación que van más allá del mono-canal o el mono-mensaje.

Project: Sobre el porqué de Nadie

Sumergidos en una atmósfera melancólica y de desencanto, aceptamos la imposibilidad de que el mundo tenga un sentido pleno. Ya no hay modelos de conducta y comportamiento. He aquí la pérdida de valores y de credibilidad. Todo ha perdido seriedad, incluso la muerte, y esto es lo más serio que puede pasar. Ya no hay nada firme sobre lo que poner los pies, quizás sí sobre el propio vacío que se monumentaliza, las imágenes tienden a el agua y el gas. Las baldosas que aseguran que hacemos pie y sobre las que caminamos con paso firme se pulverizan. En esta desgarradora nostalgia hacia aquel descanso sobre la superficie en que algún día hubo alguna certeza, se desentierran imágenes en que aún había suelo y horizonte, para ser recordadas, dejar que emerjan. Lo autobiográfico (este gesto de volcar la cámara hacia adentro) parece estar condenado a la ficción, no puedo pedirle al vídeo que muestre lo que ha sido mi pasado, solo puedo evocarlo o reconstituirlo. Así, con intención de mantener el pacto de veracidad que atañe al documental <<En un documental la historia que se conforma, está atravesada necesariamente por un valor de verdad "el pacto autobiográfico" que más allá de intentar encorsetar el relato en categorías tales como el carácter verídico u objetivo de unos hechos determinados más bien releva gran importancia a la relación entre el autor y su receptor, ya sea lector o espectadores>>. Todo es rescatado del pasado, incluso Nadie (en algún momento tuvo nombre), y esta historia pasajera que empieza a no retenerse en la memoria. De ahí esa nostalgia desprendida, los reproches sin rencor. Todo transcurre en el presente con unos protagonistas que no son actores. Otros simples individuos que también tuvieron suelo, sin nada trascendental que hacer. Un fragmento de mi vida ya había sido grabado por otros anteriores sin necesidad de un atrezzo, ni el mítico: luces, cámara, acción. Ya que el documental está condenado a la ficción, tanto más si es autobiográfico, el pacto de veracidad obliga más a la verosimilitud que a la verdad. De ahí el uso de estos recursos para representar el yo y la evocación del pasado sin recurrir a la reconstrucción o a otros artificios relacionados al cine de ficción. El autor se convierte en espectador de su propia experiencia.

Project: SSynthetic Electro Replicant

Synthetic Electro Replicant is a CGI animation which plays with synchronisation between image and sound. Most of the motion occurs over durations which are integer multiples of 0.2 seconds (0.2, 0.4, 0.8… etc). A shape can move from one point to another in 0.8 seconds for example. Some timings are occasionally offset (0.8 x 1.5 = 1.2 sec) to create syncopation between image and music, which is sequenced at a fixed rate of 150 bpm. The intention is to discover how a rigid musical timing structure interacts with tightly synchronised imagery. All the visual forms are created with a video synthesis instrument which generates vector based geometric shapes or points. These can be replicated circularly in space to form complex forms and dynamically changing geometries. Colour is used to enhance the visceral quality of the video and interacts with the abstract forms to create richly coloured imagery. Comments on the Soundtrack Inspired by trance and other dance music genres a fixed 4/4 timing structure and tempo is the foundation of the soundtrack. It is primarily a beat based composition but the rhythm is preceded with a more textural introduction. Initially the textural sonic elements accompany the video in a loose and complementary fashion. The 150 bpm tempo grid is gradually revealed as the instruments become tightly locked to the beat as the music progresses and the shapes respond in kind.

Project: inconsequence

Vestiges of temporal migrant populations behind fenced yards. Vacant buildings which once furnished the social and employment needs of a populace. Hedonistic fodder channelling an insatiable desire for consumption. Transience and permanence.

Project: Over against

Montaged footage of Saturday morning clientele vacating a crowded inner western Sydney train station platform then walking single file across a narrow footbridge to Sydney’s largest fruit and vegetable market is edited together with diagonally aligned glimpses of estranged neoclassical sculptures and urban utilitarian constructs.

Project: What remains

The work displays light sources acting in a sort of nocturnal forest; the light shakes the branches and fragments of a sculpture laid on the ground. To achieve it, I began from a static shot, slowly going towards a fragmentation of the the image itself through the light's game. My main interest is on the latency created by the movement of the light, the moments ruled by shadow, when everything is invisible.

Project: I am Going to Cry for All the Men Who did not Cry / Voy a Llorar por Todos los Hombres que no Lloraron

Men suffer just as much as women however it appears that women are less inhibited in the act of crying than men. In this work I am exploring the relationship that men have with crying: emotional suppression versus expression. Men are not as free in shedding tears due to our pervasive cultural and social ideas about manliness.

I am Going to Cry for All the Men Who didn’t Cry / Voy a Llorar por Todos los Hombres que no Lloraron
As an actor my profession forces me to express feelings on command. As a boy I was told, “Boy’s Don’t Cry”. Boys are effectively detached from their emotions and feelings; this emotional cost exacted by our culture turns emotionally whole little boys into emotionally debilitated men. For me, to study drama was a way to reconnect with my emotions and feelings again, to be free. With this piece I want to shed the tears that all the men have held back through the ages.

Project: Yoyu Attacks!

The mediaartist &quot;Heidi Hörsturz&quot; is working in the fields of audiovisual performance, video and soundart. Her work have been presented at international exhibitions, gallerys and art festivals. Her animations, live shows and installations combining contemporary art and modern trash aesthetics. She published a series of limited soundart vinyls and audiotapes which researches the connection of noise, artificial overstimulation and constructed visual associations.

One of the thematic emphasis of her work is the desire of the contemporary society to get more overstimulation in rapidly shrinking attention spans. The search for shocking informations and sexual content and the yearning for a colourful world tries to replace the current depression. The repression of self-reflection with audiovisual brain attacks represents a striving for an artificially constructed world.
