New Project - www.FromTheSunsetTerrace.com


I'm glad to share with you my new project.

http://www.FromTheSunsetTerrace.com

it glues the sky of Naples (from a webcam) and a citystrip from a village in Germany.
+ music + words.

There is a LIVE MODE and an ARCHIVE. The Live Mode doesn’t save any movie, instead keeps rendering new films that are available for view only in a specific dynamic time frame during the sunset (it changes
with seasons).
The Archive hosts a selection of HD versions rendered with a “time acceleration” process with the sunset
coming from the day before. The Archive also contains multi language subtitled versions of the film.

Carlo Zanni (La Spezia, 1975) is an Italian born artist whose work is focused on the intersection of computation and representation using and fusing old and new media (Drawing, Painting, Film, Internet) to create ever changing live environments fed by an Internet data flux. In the past years his work has been shown worldwide in galleries and museums including: MAXXI Museum, Rome (2007, 2006); New Museum, New York (2005); Gavin Brown's Enterprise at Passerby, New York (2005); P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, New York (2001). ICA - Institute of Contemporary Art in London held his first retrospective in October 2005 and published the book "Vitalogy". In October 2006, "8-bit" a documentary by artist Marcin Ramocki featuring an interview with Carlo Zanni premiered at MoMA, Museum of Modern Art, New York. With "My Temporary Visiting Position From The Sunset Terrace Bar" - 2007 [ www.FromTheSunsetTerrace.com ] Carlo Zanni keeps investigating what he calls DATA CINEMA: a new way to approach filmmaking and narrative forms at large based on the use of live data feedback gathered from the Net, to create time based social consciousness experiences.
