a knife all blade | video 1’57 (2008)

by Gabriel Menotti (br/uk)

This video was produced out of darkness, without any kind of subject but the camera itself. The lens was covered so that no light could reach the cmos sensor. What you are seeing is the feeble attempt of the compression algorithm to make images out of nothing.


In den Seilen hängen (On the Ropes) | HD video 3’40 (2010)

by Carolina Redondo (cl/de)

Der Körper ist schwer, mühvoll reibt sich der Organismus über Seile, die ihn tragen, ihn hin und her gleiten lassen. Lebenslinien aus Stoff, schlaff und stramm zugleich. Weiß auf Weiß – monochromes Rauschen am Rande des Abgrunds.

In this video I am filming myself while trying to put on lipstick during a ride on a high-speed rollercoaster, but I only succeed in part. I am almost apathetic while riding the loops and my sad eyes revealing this cannot make me happy.

I can’t believe it’s not art | HD video 1’26

by Richard Jochum (at/usa)

I can’t believe it’s not art is a short video in which a performer is picking petals from a daisy referencing to the old childhood game: She loves me, she loves me not. By expanding the popular diversion into the field of the arts, the video adds humor to an often dreadfully serious debate about whether a certain object, image or artifact is art or not. The outcome is based on an understanding of art as a process rather than a product, a social construction rather than an isolated entity by itself.
