Schmid builds her own projection screens which range from formats currently in use ( in this case 4:3, the format she uses the most as using 16mm as her main medium) to entirely fictitious ones (the 4:1 “Viktoriascope”) and if possible she then films them in the exact same format. While at an artist residency at the Djerassi Program in Caalifornia, the artist constructed one of these screens from wood and canvas and installed it within the program’s sculpture park. Still standing there, it is an unexpected object on the pathway to a scenic view of the rolling hills on the Djerassi property. In ‚A proposal to project‘ Schmid shot this site-specific installation throughout a single day when the screen turned into a projection surface for the subtle interplay of shadow and light from the surrounding trees and shrubs. Cinema without film. (Text: Claudia Slanar)

A film poem celebrating the dualities present in the everyday. As I go, impressions and questions present themselves. The intimacy of looking at my child. The ethically loaded gesture of capturing images. The entangled encounters across generations. They confront me. The comfort me. This was always meant to be a reflection on making with one’s own hands.

Can the liquidity of writing be grounded in the material of film-image? How to distill an experience from the toil of one’s everyday? The relentless flow of life passing through…

Fascinated by the wonderful canadian autumn light the filmmaker was inspired to create this visual exploration of the two fundamental elements of film: light and movement. Look how beautiful the light moves is an attempt to remain in time rather than space. Shot in a house in Montreal, the images capture different light situations in real time and time lapse using in-camera editing. The filmstrip of the Super8 cassette was handprocessed and remains unedited. The title referes not just to the captured light movements, but to the moving light on the screen through the projector’s bulb and to the journey the original, unprinted light media made – from the house in Montreal into the projection booth of this screening room.

DAMN MONEY (Let my tongue cling to top of my mouth) is a black & white 16mm fiction shot between 2008 and 2014 in and around the building occupied of the Precarious and Intermittent workers' Collective of Paris and suburbs. This film was conceived and performed by protagonists of this collective, which was evicted. The fable of this film experiment, borrowed from american literature, takes place in 1938, in the bar inside Chicago's train station. It recounts a sudden departure, without return, which is due to happen 22 minutes later, leaving just that much time for an explanation. When the film starts being shot, we are in the 19th arrondissement of Paris and it is 2008.  The "subprime mortgage" crisis is happening, and we know that the building we are in is to be demolished. There are eleven of us, and our method consists of agreeing : agreeing on the French translation of the text, agreeing on the shots, on the shooting, on the editing… The importance to agree had to be confirmed, and it took time. And when we finished the film in 2016, a shiny new building replaced the one we had known.

The adventure of Melissa and Gustavo starts aboard a red cargo ship crossing the Atlantic Ocean. It takes them to Berlin, a city of constant movement, where the old has to give space to the new. The couple finds a home and transforms it into the center of their own universe.

As time passes and seasons change, life and cinema become one and their room becomes an ever-changing stage, where friends are invited to play their own roles. In this state of transition Melissa and Gustavo lose sight of their path and their world starts to tremble.
Until one day a cosmic portal appears in their home opening connections between the past, the present and the future, confronting the two travelers with extraordinary discoveries.

MUITO ROMÂNTICO is a stream that carries along hearts and minds. A playful rearrangement of experiences, memories and fantasies into a journey transcending space and time.

Plucié/Des Andes are film artist Marek Pluciennik and sound artist James Andean. Together they have developed a unique audiovisual performance practice, drawing on the diverse background each has in their respective fields, seamlessly blending film, sound art, and performance art.
Marek Pluciennik emphasises the tactile qualities of film, not just as a vessel for content, but as a material medium, by treating and transforming the film during the act of projection, most commonly by melting and burning the film as it is projected on the screen, as well as through the digital capture and transformation of both materials and process. The visual results are thus a combination of the film content, and the beautiful, strangely transfixing display of colour and texture as the film bubbles, melts, and dissolves. The results capture the transitory, ephemeral nature of experience, art, and performance, as images, scenes, narratives, and people melt away on the screen. Pluciennik's live treatment of the film extends into the digital – as these physical metamorphoses are recaptured, digitally treated and transformed, and projected anew – and also into the realm of performance art, as his methods are played out in front of, within, and around the audience, sometimes requiring the participation of audience members, and often extending into broader metaphors of performance action.

An homage to Shirley Clarke's 'Bridges Go Round' (1958) this is a 16mm colour film of New York's Williamsburg Bridge shot originally on high contrast black and white film. It was printed, and reprinted using a colour addictive contact printer, and it includes double exposures (during the printing process) and various other techniques to achieve the 'double colour' effect in a single image, as well as incorporation of solarisation during development to some sections.

{16mm projector, film loop, glass object 2016}
A multifaceted glass curio is made subject, forcing interpretation. Projecting a filmed image of this icon directly through the actual object itself results in an accumulation and proliferation of invented meaning. A rumination on the power of pointing camera and projector.

White Sands National Monument, in the Tularosa Basin some miles from Alamagordo, New Mexico, is the world's largest gypsum desert. Its 700-some square kilometres are home to brilliant white dunes, unique desert flora and fauna, and, of course, the atom bomb. On all sides, the Monument is surrounded by White Sands Missile Range, where some of the world's deadliest military apparatus is proven. This contrast between the serene and the violent inspired the Arenas Blancas series.

Part 2: Impression Of Scale takes as its source material the individual gypsum crystals that form the eponymous dunes. By photogramming the sand grains that make up the desert, one is subject to a manipulation of experienced scale: the objects flying past on screen are at once microscopic and galactic. To further emphasize the immensity of space that exists all around us, the original source material is filtered through red and cyan filters on an optical printer and the film is intended for viewing through anaglyph 3D glasses.

Note: Film is in progress, with expected completion April 2016.

Kairos est un film-poème dansé, une marche sur les rives de la Méditerranée qui évoque aussi bien la disparition du mythe des sirènes que le périple des migrants, entre exil et résistance.
Il se déploie dans la tension entre une conception linéaire du temps, qu'on pourrait assimiler au cours du monde, au destin des choses et un temps absolu, hors durée, où l'action crée de la profondeur dans l'instant.
Le Kairos désigne pour les Grecs ce moment fugace où tout se décide, le point de bascule, la fenêtre qui s'ouvre et dans laquelle il faut s'engouffrer.

Écorce rugueuse des arbres, tapis de feuilles mortes et de branchages, parois lisses de la grotte : Les surfaces touchées, explorées, comme lues, par les mains qui s’y promènent, composent un chemin d’autant plus séduisant qu’il ne suit ni balises ni ligne droite. À l’écoute des bruits de la forêt, de la nuit, des cours d’eau, du vent et de l’orage, au plus près des animaux, du modeste scarabée à la majesté couronnée des cerfs, jusque dans les recoins sombres d’une grotte ruisselante où semble régner une figure mi-humaine mi-animale sortie d’une imagination d’enfant, nous parcourons auprès d’un personnage féminin mystérieux et à l’âge changeant, un territoire de rêve ou de souvenir. On l’explore et l’on s’y perd.

Harmony (n.) a consistent, orderly, or pleasing arrangement of parts; congruity.
Forgive my nerves— rattling of my subjective coloring and inverted subjects! With a focus on my affinity for the ephemeral, this is in part a remix of left over footage shot and then re-printed on a now defunct and sorely missed Kodak film stock, 7285. A record of my trudging foray into Step-Printing and the indulgence of rediscovering old scraps of images. Conversely, I applied the techniques of Richard Tuohy’s Chromaflex process to weld together then shred apart film scraps guided by an electric pleasure for a visual clash and at moments, harmony.

Apartment was shot on Aviphot 16mm colour-reversal stock and hand processed and edited at the Artist Film Workshop lab in Swanston St. It was premiered at KLEX festival in Malaysia, November 2015.
The observational documenting of the inanimate objects in my apartment was directed by natural light in the mornings and evenings. The visual tempo of the apartment is further examined through the use of optical printing and the effects of still photography and film.
This is a work scan that has been cropped and the scan was colour corrected as a work print only. Ideally this silent film is to be screened as a camera original 16mm film.

Experimental poetry film based on the psychological novel Aporia, the first book of a young contemporary Croatian writer Hrvoje Milic.The character’s constant and neverending contemplations create a tensive psychodrama, in which the exterior expresses his state of mind and emotions, all negative - absurdity, superficiality, bitterness, disgust. Excerpts of poetic prose, read by the author, the sound and experimental use of montage, subtitles and black screen are creating a rhythmic spiral sinking into the (un)conscious.

Using colour gels, lenses and masking, two black and white film loops are transformed into immersive light sculpture. It is little known that the Lumiere brothers' train arriving at a station, which first screened in 1896, was reshot in stereo some forty years later. Here we find ourselves on that train, moving infinitely forward and back.

‘jianjian’ consists of three looped 16mm film projections of different durations, moving independent of each other. Each loop is a film strip with image and optical sound; therefore, in practice a different combination of image and sound will be created at any given moment. Different elements are brought together, letting them communicate in an ever-changing balance.

My role in creating ‘jianjian’ is to set the parameters enabling the work to come into existence. Formless objects are captured to create a visual experience, which gives a concentrated experience of timelessness and spacelessness in the moment. The images are captured as reflections on movement, awareness, observation, being and transformation.

An unfaithful remake of Man Ray’s 1926 "Emak Bakia" made with out the use of a motion picture camera, ELONA EM EVAEL/LEAVE ME ALONE is a nonsensical response to brutality alongside a celebration of silver process. Whereas Man Ray alluded to death with a rending of collars (a funereal tradition in many cultures including Ray’s, Judaism) , ELONA EM EVAEL/LEAVE ME ALONE chooses from a surplus of tragedies the recent Amnesty Internationals Report “Will I be Next?” on US drone strikes in Pakistan and a list of the 101 children killed by them as of April 2015. Juxtaposed with footage of the filmmakers young sons (standing in for Ray’s muse and mistress Kiki of Montparnasse) the film obliquely points to the privilege inherent in the banal peacefulness of my family’s everyday life. The film is black and white hand printed and processed. It should be played at 24fps with the soundtrack provided by the image. It can be presented as a two projector “stereo” film or a single strand positive or negative mono film.

"Wake" is a dirge in celluloid. It is a celebration of my fathers life, a meditation on his body and a visual record of mourning. When my father died, there was never a chance to see his body after life had left it. This film was made by placing his ashes directly on 35mm film in a dark room and moving the film a frame at a time. What we see in this process of photograming is not the object in the photographic sense, but instead a representation of the space surrounding an object. The photogram is a shadow charting the distance between things.

The Islands is an experimental documentary which consists of mundane objects and 35mm film photographs I took in three islands: Inishimore (Ireland), Staten Island (United States) and Tsushima Island (Japan).

I’ve been traveling to many places, but I never feel that belong to any of them, even my country Taiwan. Taiwan is an island, which has changed hands many times in its 500 year history. Till now, Taiwanese struggles with their identity debates. Floating between nations and identity complex, I travel to islands; perhaps, to catch a glimpse of homeland. By constructing, re-filming and hand animating the photographs and mundane objects, I interpret history as a contemporary process. Island is no more a geographical term, but a state of mind, in which I plant the root of my very own.


**The Islands is also part of a film installation in which contains the film itself and five video sculptures. To know more details, please visit: http://hsuankuang.com/the-islands/

A processed based film about film processing. Taking an industrial film processing machine as its subject, the film turns the machines' image and sound into a reflexive poem. Hovering over its oxidised surface an attempt is made to land on its endless outpouring of loaded filmstrips full of hidden treasures and avant-garde conflict. An E-ternal polyester leader provides abstract rhythm and profound blabbering appeasing the gluttonous intestines of the rattling mechanism. Body and soul rest in over exposed flashes of transcendence: a star is born and extinguished beyond its capitalist demise.

This film rephotographs over 200 internet-sourced images of ‘Macbeth ColorChecker’ cards on to super-8mm cyanotype emulsion. Macbeth Cards (precision tools in colour film processing), were a popular accessory for small-gauge Kodachrome filmmakers in the 1970's. They have since been re-adopted by contemporary digital photographers, who use them to compare lighting scenarios on internet blogs and forums.
Tracing the history of the colour calibration card through many lenses, I effectively remove all colours, save one.

Three screens and quadriphonic performance, Au Nord/Journées blanches is the first partition of Bleu Tungstène which is an experience of associations and autonomies, dialogues and ruptures between super 8 pictures sometimes video-projected, slides, processed samples and electric guitar at the heart of which the spectator is immersed,
Au Nord/Journées blanches consists of expectations, recollections, respirations, such conditions who create “le temps d’une jounée, blanche”, as we say for a night. Such times when certain acuity enables to find the exoticism to that which is, each day, before our eyes. The desire to contemplate and to be attentive, to watch and to hear the outskirts of a city, its infrastructure and suburban sites. Distance, sometimes dismay. Exaltation and withdrawal sometimes soft or violent. Pulsation and electronic textures are questioning these common places where the camera
persists.

Brice Kartmann : composition, programmation, guitar and samples.
Damien Monnier : pictures and projection.

What is a unique identity in a world where so many already exist? Does the question of the “end of the world” really infer a loss of a sense of selfhood? And in a more practical sense, will humans as a species overwhelm the planet’s ability to support us by sheer reproductive force?

This film was created as part of Iris Film Collective's End Of The World commission, using basic black and white materials and DIY post-processing equipment. It exists as either a 3-channel (as seen in the video) or a single channel piece.

16mm, Dual Projection, Color & B/W, Silent, 14 minutes, 2015 /// Music by Warren Ng & Ben Hozie
A view through cracks between fish markets and high-rise buildings; urban imagery of Hong Kong and the indulgence of domestic life. Massage parlors, dim sum parlors, nail parlors —its Parlor City, baby! Hyperactivity: a sausage dog chews on a rib-eye bone while a Filipino family prepares a dinner of three to four different ethnic cuisines.
Incited by the airy weight of digital platforms and their approaches, I imagined ironing flat potentially conflicting 16mm negatives via an industrial contact printer. Views thicken; detail lost over generations. A dream of turning two images into one, a density of information reserved for the modern cloud.

Intimacy is Hair in the Drain explores the intimacy of cohabitation and the everyday bodily functions and rituals of self grooming one is privy to in a shared home.
To make the film I collected and rayogrammed my hair and used this footage as a curtain or mask, through which the viewer glimpses private moments of my partner and I in our apartment. The result is an abstract yet slightly voyeuristic portrait of a couple's shared life.
Soundtrack by Francis Plagne.

Installation, 3 x 16mm-projectors, 3 projectionscreens, B/W with colored filters, 2014

Schmid’s 16mm film installation is based on James Clerk Maxwell’s method of additive colour-mixing that led to the creation of the first colour photograph in 1861. A section of cloudy sky has been filmed thrice on black and white film, each time through a differently coloured filter (red, green, blue). Projected through corresponding filters, the images appear on three screens in degrees of overlap, resulting in a layered distortion of the conventional image of blue sky and white clouds, seeking to reveal the cinematic apparatus behind the composition. The mechanics of the film image become a palpable experience for the viewer. The clouds’ ephemeral state of constant motion reflects the variable nature of the image’s final appearance. Scratches and dirt marks on the hand-processed material and variations in projector speed underline the impression of fragility that is an inherent component of works on analog film.

There is a syrup tasting carnivorous urge to conquer sexual ineptitude in overbearing glances and center the camera in the infinite void of consensual reflections of nothingness. But you will dance unlike you have ever danced before, with threads of everthing you know are repackaged in metastatic digital packets of data rapidly going nowhere, blinking quickly into things outside the periphery of consciousness and knowledge towards digital sickness which thirsts for absolution. Not even the rabid gnashing of your teeth can escape the banal. Better to grin at the costumes floating about and accept the perpetual post-Panoptic suspension.

I had a strange dream the other day. I'm on the road, I walk across a large lawn which belongs to a castle or a palace. I know that I have to go inside the palace and I know that I need to find a safe. I want to open that safe. I wondered how the numbers could be, but then I realized: I do not need any combination of numbers, I just have to ask the right question!

Periphery is a film-installation that breaks down the medium to its elements - light, movement, image surface, projector. These components are dissolved and recomposed. Thus, film is exhibited as object and material, its physical properties become an aesthetic experience in itself.
The installation consists of a turning film-sculpture that is projected upon and through by two 16mm projectors. The speed and the direction of the turn can be controlled. The sound comes from contact-microphones that are placed on the pro- jectors.
We developed Periphery for the Finissage of the Videonale Parcours and later shown it at the t.b.a. (time based academy) at Kunsthalle Düsseldorf/Salon des Amateurs, Weltkunstzimmer Düsseldorf and Film-Museum Düsseldorf.

Des visages âgés nous regardent. En un noir et blanc granuleux, leurs expressions indécidables défilent dans un léger ralenti. Ci et là, des marques sur la pellicule font penser à l’action du temps sur la matière filmique : s’agit-il de moisissures ? de taches ? d’usures de projection ? Petit à petit, pourtant, ces marques évoluent et deviennent de plus en plus manifestes, révélant leur nature vivante : c’est de la chimie, qui semble travailler la chair de l’émulsion sous nous yeux pendant le propre déroulement des images.

The masked arts of Indonesia are thousands of years old. They are commonly referred to as wayang topeng (wayang: shadow or puppet; topeng: mask). It is believed that wayang topeng originated from tribal death rites, where masked dancers were considered the interpreters of the gods.

In the lowest rungs of Javanese society a unique manifestation of these masked traditions can be found. Its practitioners are performers, but they are not merely entertainers. Their aim is not simply to amuse. Their ambition is to be respected, to be honored, to be successful. They have embarked on a path they know will lead to a higher state, to an honorable and noble position.

Lack of budget in the months after the shooting, the coil was misplaced, forgotten ... Retrouvée twenty years later and lost again ...

Escaped from a moldy cardboard in 2010 (a story), it was finally revealed in December 2014 (forty years later!) To The Abominable. The generic, internegative, the 16mm copying and scanning has also been made there (in 2015).

Suddenly it happens. You realise you’ve been looking at something for an undefined amount of time, not thinking, not moving, not realising the clock ticking away. Whether you are a person staring out the window, through the trees, past the clouds and into space, or the proverbial rabbit, caught in the headlights of an oncoming car, you know the feeling of being transfixed.

To convey this feeling on behalf of Cakewalk's tune of the same name, no less than 18 meters of film was hand painted, perforated, stitched and coloured, with all editing done straight to the material itself, using a ruler and a calculator. This organic and highly analogue process has lead to a perfect marriage between a highly hypnotic soundtrack and a brain-freezing visual work.

Building upon almost a year’s worth of planning and experimentation, this video runs parallel with the visuals for the band’s live set, where the film is manipulated by hand and mechanical apparatus, in direct response to the band’s performance. Synaesthesia is an oft-abused term and source of inspiration, but in this case the fusion of sound and image will be different, 100% anchored in the physical realm of scissors, loops, paints, light-bulbs and many many volts of blazing electric power. Stay tuned for demonstrations.

Interweaving documentary images from the two matrilineal tribes of the Moshu (China) and the Kuna (Panama) this film connects alleged female societies from continent to continent. The link between these two worlds is the filmmaker herself, trying to cope with the otherness of what is seen and the strangeness of the inner experience. Refusing to see at times, unable to make visible.

A tribute to Jacob Böhme: Morgenröte im Aufgang (Aurora or Dayspring)

Jacob Böhme is undeniably something of a miracle in the history of mankind, particularly in the history of German thought. Jacob Böhme (1575-1624), the shoemaker and visionary of Görlitz, is the least known, most mysterious and at the same time potentially the most influential figure in the German history of ideas. His philosophical work, which amounts to thousands of pages, posits a radical Christianity and contains a wealth of anthropological, cosmological and natural philosophical ideas which have still not been fully explored to date.

‘Morgenröte im Aufgang’ is a film which attempts to bring this important person closer to a modern audience, thereby throwing light on some fundamental spiritual issues of our time.

‘Morgenröte im Aufgang’ is not a biographical period-piece documentary, but a feature film, in which Jacob Böhme, personified by an actor as “The man who writes”, speaks to us in his own words, based on the edition of the collected works of Jacob Böhme published in Amsterdam in 1730.

35mm shots of Madrid are digitally expanded and rearranged to emulate the sensations of another city: Barcelona. The patterns created are a graphical representation of one aspect of perception: the olfactory sense. The grain of one image originates airy particles that impregnate our vision. The images become the smell of night at the coastal town, and the orange tree courtyard in the district of Raval. Each photogram is printed on transparent tape, and glued on clear 16mm leader.

Synopsis writen by Mónica Savirón for the film program “A Matter of Visibility” which she curated for the First Look Series Festival, 2016, at the Moving Image Museum at NY.

Synopsis:
Technology sees our corporeal existence as burdensome, resulting in the body's dissolution and disconnect from the very ground beneath our feet. Hand-processed 16mm film and the electronic flicker of an old CT computer monitor create degrees of purity, traversed by the dancer's movements. Orange Trill is a cinedance in which the performance challenges the film to match its moves.

One of the series of labodoble experiment of the natural (organic) film developers.The structure of the film is based on the chemical formula of the Rhus Typhina's developer. The main protagonist of the film is a species of flowering plant in the family Anacardiaceae whose leaves and berries are mixed with tobacco and other herbs and smoked by Native American tribes. We tried to apply the properties of the Rhus Typhina in the photochemistry. The film captures the research, experiments, harvesting and preparationof the film developer in which latter original negative was developed. The nonlinear structure of the chemical formula as well as nonlinear research of the process are reflected in the order of the frames. There is no post-production except the sound. All editing work was made while film was loaded in the camera before chemical development.

The expanded cinema performance Pattern / Chaos is a negotiation between the unpredictability of organic processes and the regularity of frames, optics and motors. Images that are in first instance perceived as abstract turn out to be concrete precipitation from phenomena that surround us in every day life. The work can be understood as an attempt to undermine the assumption that the natural world and the human world are opposites. It is presented as a humble curation of organic readymades.

"L’œil du cyclope" s’ouvre comme une blessure entre la nuit du cosmique et celle de l’infiniment petit. Lumière, image de l’éveil de la conscience humaine. Conscience du spectateur comme du solitaire personnage principal. La lumière comme force primitive et opérante du film. "L’oeil du Cyclope", avec une grande maîtrise des bases radicales de la fabrication d’un film, évoque le cinéma du théâtre d’ombres et de la lanterne magique, en étant ponctué de mises en abîmes des caractères primitifs du cinéma : lumière, défilement, mouvement mécanique et circulaire. Le film suit la marche d’un unique personnage à travers bois, montagnes, cavernes et déserts. Il pourrait, si on le veux bien, représenter un archétype humain universel, et sa marche, le déroulement d’une existence. Chaque escalade, plongée, passage souterrain prend une aura symbolique. Aura renforcée par le caractère froid mais intime de l’image cinématographique, nous rappelant que notre vie n’est qu’une étincelle dans la nuit.

Shot on Super 8 in Ostende over the course of two summers in the early 2000’s, Catherine Libert’s Phénix was finalized in 2015 after hours spent in the lab, months spent on the optical printer and years raising funds. Vacating all forms of psychology, the film takes us through Claire’s journey after the brutal disappearance of her loved one. The character experiences at a physical level Henri Michaux’s Connaissance par les Gouffres. The text streams through the Film as its lone source of appeasement. The Film develops through convulsive editing structured by rhythm breaks, jump cuts, alternations between overexposures and burnt film. It is a work of fiction that could equally be a documentary… an experimental logbook of sleepless nights, blind suns, bereavements and loves.

Intérieur, jour. Centre de Recherche en Oncologie à Berlin, janvier 2011. Une équipe de tournage rencontre des chercheurs. Utilisant du film argentique, l'équipe enregistre des expériences réalisées sur des souris. Les souris sont soumises à différentes mesures. Il est difficile de dire avec certitude si le film traite d'un ou plusieurs tests, d'une ou plusieurs souris – les tests et les animaux nus sont trop semblables. Parallèlement à cela, l'équipe du film documente ses propres activités, nécessaires au tournage.
Dans Laborat, le cinéaste Guillaume CAILLEAU entrelace différents niveaux. Il rend compte des examens réalisés sur l'objet de façon très précise, tout en pensant simultanément le processus de la documentation elle-même. La distance à l'objet se voit suspendue. L'objet devient le sujet, le spectateur un complice. Une fresque d'images. Le malaise s'installe.

Confused, frustrated but encouraged, he puts his whole "„him” into this film. The filmmaker approaches his life struggles as a dilemma between the filmed and the non-filmed, the translation and the impossibility of communication, the voice-over and the subtitles. As a fan of Kon Ichikawa and Yasunari Kawabata, and a lover of Michio Takeyama’s novel „Harp of Burma”, he tries to express that complexity in a series of multilayered fictive/true stories through visual, audial and, especially, textual manipulations while questioning the power structure of image quality. Mixing his banal daily life, his past, and the filmmaking process, the filmmaker raises several anthropological and life questions on nature, origin, language, non-existence, identity, visual media and dominant cultures. He strives to find answers in a circle of interpreting himself in a conflict between oppressed and powerful languages, retranslating what is translated and letting others reinterpret him from both within and without the film. Everything becomes useless when one transcends boundaries inside the mind.

Northern Lights is a live cinema performance for five 16mm projectors and hand-processed film loops. Kootstra, a visual artist based in Finland, in collaboration with audio artist Arvid van der Rijt, construct a continuously shifting spatial and immersive environment, with images of natural phenomenon emerging and receding from legibility. “Footage taken from real life alternates with hand-drawn patches of colors, switching back and forth between the projected illusion and the raw material of film. Flying birds show themselves barely recognizable as we arrive in the dusk. Artificial lights arise and pop up in a dreamlike landscape of light and darkness. From the pulsating film loops, colors start to emerge out of the black and white images. As the last colors disappear, the lights fade away into the darkness again.”

An investigation of the optical film strip, where light triggers sound; passing objects as noise across and out of the visible frame, and through the unseen strip.
The artist, the action, and the consequent sound, all skirt around the edges of the visible film frame. Dissolving the usual boundaries of framing and structure, this is an extended format film, asking the viewer to see what isn’t in view and to hear the shape of things

object - content - pattern binary code / projection - framed - reading content

First work from the 'QR CODE / FILM' series.
Following in the footsteps of classic authors such as Gil J. Wolman, Peter Kubelka or Tony Conrad, who worked with alternating white frames (transparent) with black (opaque) in the 50's & 60's (last Century).
With this series, which starts with the basics of 'cinema' -the light and no light-, even pretend to step over that line of work metric, structuralist, conceptual or references to flicker, etc.
But with the addition that fits into a new context, with new technologies, in which his -structure- content of the pattern obtained by its own title that generates your personal QR CODE (Quick Response Code), what would be the 'New Barcode'.

The original work is in 16mm film, you can enjoy both its projection (through devices that are found in almost all users, as SmartPhones, Tablets, etc.) and the classic dark room or as object-inert work, which is none other than the provision of 16mm filmstrips vertically placed one beside the other, encased in between two transparent Plexiglass plates.
Reading, for projection, is from top to bottom and left to right (occidental reading).
This disposition celebrates the first of the exhibits as Paul Sharits's 'Frozen Film Frames' in 1965, who honors at its 50th anniversary.

The road to get to this piece, into the path of Antoni Pinent, has been a natural route, having previously worked with these techniques work available as objectual 'GIOCONDA / FILM' (1999) or 'KINOSTURM KUBELKA / 16 variaciones '(2009), as well as compositions in which modifies the spatial units of frames, such as in the use of technical' film quartet ' editing.

The Ginza of fable and memory.  This is the first film I have finished using the 'chromaflex' technique that we developed.  This is a novel colour developing procedure that allows selected areas of the film to be colour positive, colour negative, or black and white.

The Patthorst lies in East Westphalia, it's a small forest, where I come from.
There they burn this brandy. Tastes like vodka and chili. Pretty intense.
If you mix it with vitamin C, and washing soda you can develop wonderful movies!

Sans-titre (24xH2o) is a 35mm projection performance, all edited with original altered movie trailers.
Those distorted commercial frames reveal their materiality and take us to another cinematic environment.
Leftovers from original shots become sets for a new experience.
Fiction turns organic and rhythm.
Screen finally looks like a disturbed and moving luminous painting.
Sans-titre (24xH2o) shows the projection materials technique by placing it in the middle of the audiences.
The projector mechanics frees its own energy that also fill the screening room.

An expanded cinema performance in which the light of two super8 projectors and the films produce and modify sounds and noises in real time.
Images and movements on the films were originally produced working on a cathodic tv screen and a digital camera and then mixed in projection with other images shot directly on super8 film in order to produce some sort of short circuits between different technologies and in the same time some parallelism between different events.

A film based on fragments of the story La Gente Perra by the Colombian writer Gomati D. Wahn (1923 -1993). The story, which takes place 3000 years in the future, tells of the character of The Admiral as he searches for the land of the Dog People and the riches that it hides. However, as is typical of Wahn’s style, the story is assembled out of altered existing texts, in this case, historic accounts of the conquest of what was once known as the New World.

In 1984, for three weeks in May, what appeared to be a giant cloud shrouded the small town of Hüllen-Hüllen in darkness. Before the end of the month the cloud had dispersed and life seemed to return to normal. One month later, however, the town was hastily abandoned and its residents were nowhere to be found. They left most of their belongings behind in such a way as to make one think they would return at any moment.

The search that followed led investigators to a cave on the outskirts of town. Inside the cave a number of homemade contraptions were discovered. Connected by a variety of mirrors and fitted with a wide array of lenses, they were found to form a large projection device. Even though at first sight it appeared to be either unfinished or broken, it was eventually determined to be in working order. When it was turned on it projected a series of images onto every surface of the cave. Initially the source of the images could not be established, yet upon further examination it was found that the images were engraved directly on the lenses of the machine.

Along with the machine a sheet of paper covered in handwritten text was also found. It was titled Wolkenschatten. Beyond the uncertain clues provided by the images and the text, no verifiable explanation for the disappearance of the town’s residents has ever been given. For the sake of preservation the engraved images were transferred onto 35mm slide film. Copies of the text and images were made and archived together. We have been lucky enough to obtain one of these sets. For the benefit of those interested in examining this strange occurrence, we’ve put them together as a narrated slideshow.

This film is a radical test-case for Godard’s notion that ‘a film must have a beginning, a middle and an end – but not necessarily in that order’. It is no biopic or film-version of a book, though it does follow Nabokov’s traces closely, especially the novels Ada or Ardor and the autobiographical Speak, Memory. In both these novels the theme of time is central – and the film too, in content and form, is a meditation on the phenomenon of time.

At the beginning stands the ‘moment of awakening’ that Nabokov describes in his autobiography: in an old flickering ‘homemade movie’ he sees his pregnant mother and an empty pram awaiting him, as yet unborn.

The work of Sector 16 in this film was to create this "homemade movie" from the beginning of filmmaking. The 16mm-sequences are used as a guiding theme in this film.

Burning the Sea stands at the paradoxical crossroads between the lively energy of a revolution in progress, the momentum of a departure to Europe, and the violence of a welcome declined. The film targets what constitutes the sensitive framework of an existence at a time of rupture; that which is the smallest, the most common, far from exoticism, but haunted by a dream, like an exhortation. It is not a film about emigration or revolution, it is an essay on freedom, or rather an essay that stages freedom: a real and fictitious attempt to escape which involves the making of a film, taking part in the process of emancipation: burning the sea, borders, laws, papers, etc. What does it mean to break with one’s past life, leave one’s country and family in which, somehow or other, strong links of solidarity, mutual assistance and ancestral ties to the land still prevail, and join a world mythologized and dominated by capitalist relationships? What is meant by ’living one’s life’?

Fabriqué à partir de simples morceaux de pellicules, ce film d'à peine 10 minutes est la tentative précaire d’une fiction : ce sont des bribes d’histoires déposés sur l’écran, des sous-titres qui font balade, des mots tendus sur l’image.
Joindre aux images les mots qui leur ont été enlevés, en déterrer les restes, apposer sur la montagne nue son pendant de récit enfoui, afin de donner à l’image d’autres possibles, à la fiction d’autres modalités. C’est ce que tente ce film, rejoignant ainsi des problématiques posées aussi bien par l’image que par la question de l’invention d’une langue. Enonciation collective, un film peuplé de récits sans loi, de fictions sans histoires véritables, inscrivant l’image dans ses devenirs en lui joignant des voix venues d’ailleurs, et pourquoi pas celle de l’histoire, celle qui ne se voit ni ne s’entend. Aux blocs nus des montagnes, le film oppose le morcellement, le démantèlement d’un tout à reconstituer en dehors de l’image et de ses cadres, l’inscription de points, d’un flux tendu de visibilité.

Two 16mm-filmloops are projected in a blackbox filled with fog generating moving light beams. Besides the sound of the projectors you can hear the original sound of the first encounter of Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader taken from the movie Star Wars Episode V. The cinematic space is transferred into the blackbox, in which the audience is allowed to have a new perception of the familiar movie scene. The lightbeams become the Jedi-lightsabers due to the combination of the light and sound in the mind of the audience.

Triple exposure is a landscape film created with cinematic accelerations, a cluster of distorted visual impressions from the nature, a dynamic trip through the forest of the region of La Selva, Girona. The approach to the figurative elements (branches, leaves, trees, bushes, birches, heaven) are transformed by different optical effects to stand between the lyrical and the abstract.

Along with mechanical and magnetic, optical is one of the three analogue sound recording systems and the one that has been most frequently applied in cinema, though magnetic is also widely used. Its biggest advantage is that the soundtrack is on the same support as the celluloid, to one side of the strip of film. That means that it never goes out of synch with the image. It is converted from electrical impulses collected by photocells that modulate the light beam, etching black marks on the celluloid that correspond to peaks and valleys.

The process shows us that in film, in other words on celluloid, sound is also image. Miguel Aparicio takes this premise and probes it by filming the horizon line in his hometown. The peaks and valleys between the various buildings on the skyline are profiled and duplicated upside down, arriving at marks similar to those drawn by a photocell.

Synopsis
The winter reigns as the Traveler crosses by feet an ancient landscape.
In this place there's also another presence, someone who's very similar to the Traveler. Does the Traveler realize this figure that cohabits the same space as him? Is the other a guardian angel or a devil?


About the film
In the Traveler's Heart was produced during an artist-in-residence program in Nida, Lithuania. During 9 weeks in the winter of 2013 the artists wrote the story, scouted locations, manufactured the costumes and props, built the scenery, recorded sounds and finally shot the film. The 16mm negative was processed parallel to the shooting, in a self-made laboratory.
A hand made film, made by four hands.

The film was commissioned by the Contemporary Art Centre, Vilnius, with support of the Nida Art Colony and Goethe-Institut Vilnius.

This experimental documentary was filmed while I was an artist-in-residence at Arteles Creative Centre in Finland during March of 2013. I was interested in the transitory nature of a residency, and what we as artists were searching for by coming there. I feel that the experience was a surreal, altered state of reality, and I am interested in why this is so appealing. In the midst of conducting interviews with my fellow artists, we were also developing alternate identities for ourselves as part of our performance art dance troupe, Lumi Crew. This work functions as a portrait of each artist individually, while also striving to understand the drive to create and the elusive dream of the "Art Life".

This film is an entirely new work that is haunted by the artists past. This work is the third in a series of films in which the artist explores themes of death, nostalgia, memory, post-memory and autobiography by trying to make sense of the suicide of her father. The family summer home where both the artist and her father grew up is the catalyst for these themes. The artist returned to this place, where she projected her film “Ice Cream” (2010), edited from 16mm family film footage, on to the buildings as a film within the film. Consisting of a guided tour by the artist, images of projections, and a heart wrenching voiceover by the artist’s sister, this film is a poignant exploration of how a person’s death can irrevocably change a place.

The super8 projector, the film and the image are used as instruments to produce and modify in real time the light and, using some self-made photosensitive sound devices, the sound.
Super8 films are prepared by scratching and patching, piercing and ink drawing to be used in a multiple projection at different speeds. The projection is then manipulated with glass, prisms, lens and mirrors. The projectors and their internal mechanics are also used as sound producing objects in relation with voice and electroacoustic stuff.

« In olden days, every single day, every single hour, every single minute was sloping toward the day, the hour or the minute after, and all of them were aspirated by the time’s aim which provisional existence created like a vacuum. Maybe this gossip in which I was involved would have ended, after milleniums of incidents played in loop. This time circularity was still a secret, and my short life was for me a a straight segment which the two ends absurdly pointed toward infinity. Inspired by this expert from "Vendredi ou les limbes du Pacifique" (Friday or the Pacific limbos) by Michel Tournier, this movie is the story of the slow erasure of Hannah’s identity, story which itself disappears quickly in simple succesion of cycles and material.

Narrative and non-narrative coalesce in this short avant garde work by Amanda Thomson. A woman's voice sketches out an enigmatic romance while the camera gets lost in the patterns of sunlight on windswept leaves and water.

Shot on super 8, a medium uniquely suited to finding unexpected shapes in the familiar world, the film ultimately abandons nostalgia and memory for a moment suspended in the eternal present.

In early 20th century Vienna Robert Musil invited Sigmund Freud to partake in, what he called, “a very special séance”. Seated at the table Musil revealed that they were going to summon the ghost of Franz Anton Mesmer, discoverer of animal magnetism and forefather of hypnosis. Musil told Freud about a series of dreams he had which involved a talking flea. Musil, who had secretly become a follower of the imaginationist school of animal magnetism wanted to question Mesmer as to the meaning of these dreams, in which said flea foretold of impending catastrophes all over Europe. It is said that Mesmer obligingly appeared and spoke in a repetitive and oblique manner. Mesmer’s words were transcribed by Freud in several scraps of paper and hidden separately in a series of objects that, owing to the vicissitudes of history, would end up in the collections of three Viennese museums. Legend has it that he who could piece together the text would find instructions for the assembly of a film.

We visited these museums and, unable to break away the objects from their glass prisons, have made an attempt to reconstruct the film, hoping that the magnetic force inside the objects would transfer to the film’s silver halide crystals, therefore allowing us to make sense of the single written testimony left over from the séance. In her diary, as the lone entry for that date, Eugenie Schwarzwald, the only other known participant, wrote: “A distinguished flea hypnotizes the ghost of a distinguished man.”

A color-separation portrait of the Exarchia neighborhood of Athens, Greece, made during the Anti-Austerity protests in late 2011. In a place thick with stray cats and scooters, cops and Molotovs, ancient myths and new ruins; where fists are raised like so many columns in the Parthenon, this is a film of surfaces - of grafitti'd marble streets and wheat-pasted city walls - hand-processed in red, green, and blue.

When George Sand and Frederic Chopin decided to spend a winter in Mallorca, was a sign that the romantic disease was spreading in the world. Inspired by the letter and spirit of the 24 preludes that polish musician composed on the island, I draw a line through the Majorcan countryside, looking for spots where nowadays still is possible to feel the echo of that primal romanticism that I also suffered.

The Chase! arose from research I did in my final year at Simon Fraser University into the first twelve years of cinema history, sometimes called “Early Cinema.” The fascination with technology, the emphasis on spectacle, and the determination of individual exhibitors to out-do one another and compete for audiences with their own enterprising contraptions spoke to a sense of wonder that I have always had for the medium. I designed and built this installation in the style of those early entrepreneurs and showed it publicly for the first time in a storefront (the late Trench Gallery) just steps from the storefront where the first movies in Vancouver BC were ever shown.

In the cinema half time we seat in the darkness because a shutter has to hide the moment of changing images in a film projector. That Darkness makes illusion of movement possible. Cinematic darkness plays with the cinema effect. Sometimes it creates illusion of the cinema without film projection. It makes cinematic in the darkness.

For over ten years a group of artists of Sector 16 have been working on a film about consciousness and the reception of the medium film itself.
"GEISTZEIT" is the product of these years of research and work. The films main string is about the individuation process and selfawareness embodied in the figures of child, adult and mentor.
The voyages through destructed and natural landscapes of these characters lead to a final ascend in flicker-sequences. The film is structured in eight parts analog to eight levels of
consciouness.

It is through songs that people leave the sky of their childhood to enter into active life in the reign of civilization.
It is through songs that they return to primitive life.
NOBODY DID ANYTHING
A cinema-poem that was born out of road signs found scattered on the road.
The theme is a war, an opaque and archaic war that is never named.
The text is a chant about the behavior of a "timeless-man" during a war.
The film's structure is drawn around the road signs found as fragments of a trip, as images stolen from our daily living.
The "writing on screen" is the object of the research.
The images were filmed during more than one decade of peregrinations throughout the roads of this planet,
accompanied by a Super-8 camera.
The images are never a direct comment about the text;
rather they will try to become moving in which we can place ourselves to listen to the voice of the chant.
A damage LP vinyl that repeats itself?
The time and the rhythm are those of the repetition transported by the wind, as the text tells in its conclusion:
Now that you know this, try to protect yourself and save your head. If you cannot do it, at least, you will not be bored.

Al di là della grande Storia del cinema italiano e della sua morte annunciata, c'è un'altra storia, quella di un cinema invisibile e resistente che nessuna tempesta potrà annientare, perché tornerà sempre, libero e spontaneo, come le erbe selvatiche sui margini dei senteiri.

'CAMPI ARDENTI' è il quarto episodio di 'VIE TRAVERSE', road movie cinematografico che percorre l'Italia dal nord al sud alla ricerca di un cinema independente, estremamente vivo, anche se considerato morto. Dalle rovine del Circo Massimo a Roma, passando per le periferie dimenticate, fino alle macerie di Pozzuoli, il film cerca di incontrare un cinema di sopravvivenza, quello di Beppe Gaudino e Isabella Sandri.

by JP Rhem and Nicolas Feodoroff (FID)
The eminent Russian writer Ossip Mandestam, who died when deported to Siberia in 1938, wrote in 1922: “My century, my beast, who will dare looking deep into your pupils?” Nathalie Nambot used this question as a starting point. You don’t notice it at once, but it gets confirmed gradually, as slowly as a survivor’s breath: her film is a long dedication to rebellious lucidity. Yesterday’s lucidity (yesterday?), from the Stalin era to today’s Russia (today?).
Her project is all about recording immobilism and countering it with the rhythm of uprisings, thus mixing temporalities: the merciless continuity of horror with the sharpness of verses and screams. Obviously, it is ambitious. But also modest, because in order to stir up the past without succumbing to emotionalism, you need some incarnated complicities. Mandelstam. His wife Nadejda, who rescued his texts from oblivion by learning them by heart. A friend, Anna Akhmatova. They are all witnesses, in the present tense: they are living testimonies waiting to be heard, repeated and interpreted, as they wander through the city and landscape. They all say that what we get to see isn’t the exclusive property of winners. They are also very much in the now: they bring up the carnage at the Dubrovka theatre in October 2002, and the public words of Stanislav Markelov, a lawyer murdered in the street in January 2009.
“Written kisses never reach their destination / ghosts drink them on the way,” is the quotation that comes as an epigraph. The film is convinced of their possible exorcism.

With Le Point Aveugle, we propose a session of live cinema, visual and sound performance using several projectors 16mm, turntables and some wires. The pictures and sounds are manipulated and modified by various means: variations of focal and volume, superpositions, repetitions of sequences, partial maskings, transparent objects using for pictures and analogic filters for sounds...
Conceived as a dialogue between several film-makers and musicians, this performance considers the film image and the sound as material and light, as a spouting out visual and sonorous stream of the darkness and silence, destroyed and reconstructed permanently.
By abandoning the story to redefine us on the nature of the film medium, we try to create something of the order of a contemplative journey, leaving to every spectator the care of leading its own investigation...
This project is presented like a workshop of research in permanent evolut ion fed by the various sensibilities of each personality who meet this adventure since 2002.

Production : Collectif burstscratch.
Coproduction : La Filature, Scène nationale – Mulhouse.

A travers quelques archétypes du cinéma d'amateur, détectés dans le corpus des films collectés, Ad libitum propose un hommage à ces documents cinématographiques inconnus. Il s'agit de faire basculer le contenu sémantique des images du film de famille vers un imaginaire contemporain qui interroge le regard sur cette manière de filmer et d'être filmé.

Des sculptures/machines à projeter, à montrer et à amplifier, inventées et réalisées par trois acteurs d'Ad libitum (Christophe Auger, Joël Massey, Laure Sainte-Rose), sont installées dans un espace d'exposition plongé dans le noir.

Images argentiques, électriques et vidéographiques /une plongée vertigineuse dans l'univers transfiguré du film amateur.

Les dispositifs mis en oeuvre, sont conçus pour générer à partir de la "matière image" brute, des transformations, des distorsions, des confrontations inédites: effets d'anamorphoses optique s et électriques, composition sonore utilisant des ambiances familiales et des "bruits machine".

Une mise en scène où se côtoient, dans un même espace d'expérimentation, art plastique et patrimoine cinématographique.


Un univers allant de l'abstraction à l'onirisme, un voyage dans le temps des images: de la mémoire activée à l'ici et maintenant.

Get out of the way! Get this, Charlie; get this, Charlie! It's fire—and it's crashing! It's crashing terrible! Oh, my! Get out of the way, please!

Oh, the humanity! ah! I—I can't talk, ladies and gentlemen. Honest: it's just laying there, mass of smoking wreckage. Ah! the screaming. Lady, I—I—I'm sorry. Honest: I—I can hardly breathe.

The images are not lost…they are spectral and the dance steps repeated over and over in time fights the Fade – a falling down that breaks the spine of the book of life (mankind). Nightime stay “Yes”…are there really “better angels of our nature” nasal and distant the sound of the migratory mind search – I need to relearn the route – the electricity has been losing juice – still a third rail running through my brain causing the 400 agitations of Julie…a real separation of colours…time gets rooted and stalls a little bit of gr ey matter dies – part of the Fade – the over medicated culture of society – the pharma fog contributes to our cyclic emptying of tragic past events and there it goes again before we know it we are in another former deja vu again man versus man versus nature the essence of the organics…the transformative alchemy…I need a tool to dislodge clogged synapses and arteries…perhaps a snake…ecstatics make the engine run dilation of the flesh…maybe it’s true through the emptying of self loss of memory the fade of pain mankinds reason

Africa, 2003: the mechanisms of memory.

I shot the image of a landscape and buried simultaneously a film strip in the same place where the sequence was shot: the emulsion, the victim of erosion is thus subjected to biochemical degradation. The result of these natural processes of decay are then conserved in the state of their dissolution. Those two images, and their negative versions, are then entangled together thanks to double exposure and bi-packing techniques.

These landscapes in fusion, it's the logic of a world that reveals itself. A bipolar world, where invisible takes shape with the visible, where the first dissolves itself into the second and vice versa.
