Blog-In Movies

(0)

Launched on June 27th, Doron Golan's DVBlog presents a wide range of web-based cinema--artist projects, historic pieces and even relevant tutorials--indexed by categories such as "satire," "documentary odd" or "ephemera." A loose group of artists, among them Lew Baldwin, Yoshi Sodeoka, Tim Whidden and Golan, curate the site, straddling time and genre quite freely. The only stipulation is that the works be in Quicktime, a platform whose architecture Golan describes as "superior." To date, selections have included "Spamalogue" by Ze Frank, in which the humorist enacts a spam email message from an alleged government official who pleads for huge sums of money to be channeled quickly into his bank account, also seminal net cinema pieces like "Little Movies 2" by Lev Manovich and short videos by artists such as Scott Hessels and Peter Horvath. With so much cinematic variation, watching movies on the DVBlog is like skipping theaters in a multiplex--with no risk attached. At the same time, as each day passes, the bloggers are building a rich archive that distills salient concepts as well as fleeting ideas or attempts involved in this emerging form. - Lauren Cornell

Golden Numbers

(0)

On August 15, 1945, Korea was freed from Japanese occupation, but the country was divided into two and ruled as trusteeships by the Soviet Union and US. A 4km-wide demilitarized zone (DMZ) was set up, surrounded with barbed wire and electric lines, littered with mines and monitored with a search light at night. Gigantic speakers blared loud propaganda calling for people to defect, but these broadcasts were stopped in summer 2004 and the speakers were removed.

P1010883.jpg

Golden Numbers is a sound installation that uses 32 of these speakers.

In the installation, the numbers from 0 to 36525 are read out. This number represents the number of days in the hundred years from August 15 1945 to August 15 2045. Recordings of old radio broadcasts and sounds produced in real-time from encoded signals are heard intermittently, and the audience can also broadcast their own voice through the same microphones that were used by military personnel at the DMZ. The sounds mingle slowly around a circle and allude to the passage of time and history. The voices recorded into the microphone show that everyone lives within the flow of time, and contributes to history in some way.

In the middle of the circle is Red Symbol, a red art object in the shape of the head and hands of the late Pope John Paul II.

By Park Lee Chang Shik, Noh Joe Chuel, Yim Minju, Seo Hyojung, and Yukie Sato.
Golden Number can be seen till August 21 at the Seoul Olympic Museum.

Thanks Manekineko!

Announcing: Rhizome Location

(0)

Francis Hwang:
Hey kids,

I just rolled out the next Member feature here at Rhizome.org:
Location. Go here to see what I'm talking about:

http://rhizome.org/location.rhiz

Location gives Members the option to be searchable by their country of
residence. Right now we imagine this will be most useful for those
Members who live in countries where the new media arts scene has a ways
to grow.
