The Golem Diptych Video Painting

Video thumbnail. Click to play
click to play in QuickTime / mpeg-4 video for iPod / or direct streaming at blip.tv
.
A short experimental diptych-voodle (aka dooble-voodle) featuring 27473 by two animated frozen frames. The Golem Diptych is a Video Painting once captured as two simultaneously shot long takes in Venice, Italy - 2009.11.06. Every single by two frame is now painted. The true beauty of a Video Painting Diptych resides constantly in its single by two frames. Thus this beauty recedes by the cinematic animation/automation of the video - like a Golem and animated, the moving imagery can never leave the singularity of the frames by two and hence recites the painting and beauty all over again - in each singular painted frame by two. The Golem Diptych is inspired by / and uses the work of Anchor Méjans (The Golem Variations - sawed-off cello sample), Speck (the golem calm heat variations cooling test) and rocavaco (From square till round) - all available and very much audible at ccMixter.org.

Drawing no.1 (Excerpt/Trailer)


click to play a short trailer in QuickTime - (moi and b.k. - all rights reserved)
.
Synopsis:
A short experimental documentary featuring 39’ 28’’ of pure Nordic concentration, revealing the silent magic of a conversation that comprehends a complete immersion from its participants.

An immobile camera frames two young women under a meeting. Unaware that they are filmed, the women are shown in deep concentration while they take notes and listen or respond to other, mostly invisible, participants. As viewers of the video we are not invited to participate in the meeting. Neither are we told about its content and remain 'completely outside' of the happening.

The women are shot from a low angle sitting at a table. Faces turned away from the camera we’re nevertheless able to recognize their features. The utmost attentiveness they signal is fascinating and the subtle body language that unfolds in front of us soon captures us. The drama reaches its first peak when they start to interact with an invisible person who is sitting next to the camera… and the women turn their faces towards us…

‘Drawing #1’ is a digitally enhanced video documentary on the issues of observing body and space morphologies. The role of the spectator is given but arguably not the one of the ‘voyeur’. Rather then the hidden and forbidden view, it presents us - not unlike the films of the Lumière Brothers - with a naive cinematic perspective on the phenomena of everyday life, only in this case it’s about the complete immersion of two Bergman-repertory like ‘protagonists’.


moi & b.k.: video 080 for lomeg-rom.blogspot com - 4'02'' (trailer, 520/390)

the soundtrack for this trailer is an AIR_LOMEG re-mix of Ugly By Now's "You Look Hot" (ccMixter.org)

On Burnouts And Architecture That Must Blaze

Video thumbnail. Click to play
click to play in Quicktime / mpeg-4 video for iPod / or direct streaming at blip.tv
.

We want architecture to have more. Architecture that bleeds, that exhausts, that whirls and even breaks. Architecture that lights up, that stings, that rips, and under stress tears. Architecture should be cavernous, firey, smooth, hard, angular, brutal, round, delicate, colorful, obscene, voluptuous, dreamy, alluring, repelling, wet, dry and throbbing. Alive or dead. Cold – then cold as a block of ice. Hot – then hot as a blazing wing. Architecture must blaze.
Excerpt from ‘Architecture Must Blaze’ (1980)
Coop Himmelblau; Architecture Is Now.
.
A short experimental docu-voodle by bk featuring OMA's tvcc/cctv burnout captured in Beijing, China - 2009.05.08, almost three months after the blaze took place. It's a necessity for Architecture to blaze, but it's a poignance to see it burned out. Soundtrack overlay 'apocolypse outro' by Neurowaxx (ccmixter.org).

A short experimental voodle-voodle daydreaming on body and space morphologies of the common sort... pondering about why the results of all sportive events never are quite the same although the participants do practice year in / year out, day by day... wondering why some things move and some never do... why it is that air can stand still while heavy wind-casts are causing a headache... Immobile air is nothing to write home about - it's home as it was captured in Khur, Switzerland - 2009.04.09 at 11:59:00 until short after the 12:00:00 train passed by. Before the final is decided - AIR LOMEG want to express their gratitude for the runaway!

This voodle used two minutes and 12 seconds in the making and it takes the viewer exactly two minutes and 30 seconds to view it (if you just view it, that is). This voodle uses crapy footage from way before voodle time and like many voodles it has not the slightest clue what it all is about. Text to be deleted or changed soon...
