"one word movie"
a real net cinema work. you become the director and scriptwriter when you
enter your keyword. depending on your keyword your new, expanding
experimental film may be a horror film or a porn film. you can also be the
editor and change the speed, loops and repeats of the live net film. and
because the web is a shifting space and images are being uploaded and
deleted by thousands of users, the oneword movie will never be the same
twice. my old teacher stan brakhage once said "a word is worth a thousand
pictures" and that applies very literally to onewordmovie.
a conceptual and political hack. as the google brand begins its quick
takeover of all text, news, video, satellites, and your frontal lobe, they
overlooked a loophole in their own system. like ouroburos, google may, in
the end, eat itself. simple and brilliant.
the confluence project is an interesting project/performance, partly because
it is such a human invention. it requires not only the our sense of
adventure, exploration, and storytelling, but also our sense of making order
and systems through technology. the confluence hunters in the confluence
project are searching out these invisible man made lines of latitude and
longitude. they use g.p.s. units to pinpoint these 'virtual' locations,
digital cameras to document and prove the journeys, and then the web as an
archival and community space for the project. it's absurd and inevitable.
"i love you"
i love the shifting, cutting light in this project. every click and revisit
regenerates the code, cutting the image, abstracting the message, uniting
the aesthetics. a digital bouquet, it's painterly and ineffable.
haunting loops of cut up textures and fairytale lifecycles flash on the
screen. time and sound lead us through this surreal short story.
