Encore II (radioactive) (2004, 11.5MB, 3:31 min.)

Isaac Julien  is one of Britain’s most innovative and
provocative filmmakers. He has been involved with
forging a new language around black representation.
Although his works largely retain a conventional narrative
approach they are shot through with strategies
which then serve to disrupt the stability of this narrative.

Call for experimental video: ADTV

patrick lichty:

Post widely:
Call for Experimental Video: ADTV

In the ever-accelerating media culture, how can video art explore the
contemporary cultural milieu? For that matter, how can it interface with
genres like New Media to create novel modes of audience engagement?

ADTV (Attention Deficit TV) is an experimental television program created in
the spirit of Dada, the Situationists, and Fluxus to address the disjoint
nature of contemporary culture in a playful manner. Mixing elements of the
attentive, the inattentive, the frenetic, and the discontinuous, ADTV seeks
to challenge the established protocols of television, motion graphic

design, video art, and New Media.

ADTV will consist of 1-3 30-minute pilot episodes which will be 'broadcast'
from an top-secret media laboratory deep beneath the bowels of a Midwestern
US university. Each episode will be of an ad hoc format of segments rarely
longer than 30-90 seconds each, with the exact configuration depending on
the content and daily occurrences surrounding the show's creative process.

Hosted by creators Patrick Lichty and Nathan Murray (with Gregory Little),
ADTV wants to provide a potent palaver for the undulating underground of the
transmodern mediascape.

In the end, our goal is to deliver 20-30 minutes of content akin to the
irresistible media train wreck that changes channels every 30 seconds. No
need to flip the channel - we'll do it for you.

The resulting ADTV episodes will be broadcast on WBGU-TV and distributed via
V-Podcast through

ADTV be a high colonic for what ails you?
ADTV be a palate cleanser or an after-dinner aperitif?
ADTV be a cutting-edge critique of contemporary culture?
ADTV be a mirror of a surface-deep media milieu?
We have no idea. Our goal is the solely the process of ADTV's media stream-
of-consciousness firehose.

ADTV Call for Content!

HARKNESS A/V at MONKEY TOWN features Bradley Eros, Ray Sweeten, Zach Layton and Chika

Nick Hallett:

Friday, January 27
58 N 3rd St
(btw. Kent & Wythe)
Williamsburg, Brooklyn 11211 for reservations and info

Harkness A/V selects an evening of multisensory performance featuring work by Bradley Eros, Ray Sweeten and the duo of Zach Layton and Chika,

This event finishes off Monkey Town's amazing "VIDEO WEEK" featuring rhiz's "laptops vs. craptops" and works of cory arcangel (hosted by EAI)

These artists combine electronic sounds and projections from a variety of 'alternative cinema' sources to create an immersive media environment, maximizing Monkey Town's quadravisual screening system. For those out there who miss the 'chill-out room' era, this event should be for you...

Ray Sweeten will present, specifically for Monkey Town, a piece for four oscilloscopes. An oscilloscope is an analog instrument that graphs the flow of electrical impulse on an x and y axis. Though its main applications are in scientific research, Ray uses the 'scope to visualize
compositions of sweeping electronic sound, creating sculptural Lissajous patterns and tesselations that seem to journey into the beyond. Ray has presented his oscillographic work at The Kitchen, Ocularis, PS122, and the Roberta Beck Memorial Cinema.

Bradley Eros uses the medium of cinema to evoke primal, biological forms:
fire, water, undulations of microscopic life, and the systems of the human body. His experiments with color liquid projection and the decomposition of celluloid have led him to a unique aesthetic of ethereal and sensual beauty, which are most often accompanied by haunting sound collages (also Bradley's doing). He is the founder of the Robert (now Roberta) Beck Memorial Cinema, hosted by Participant Gallery and was featured in the Whitney Museum's 2004 Biennial.

Zach Layton and Chika will perform their celebrated "alpha wave" collaboration. Zach generates a variety of sine ...

A Lion King Remake

Lion King Remake: A recipe for Hilarity and Disaster (or at least a few good laughs over lunch with a copyright lawyer).

This is what you get when you add:
40 or so severely fatigued freshmen game design students
+ a cruel instructor ready to indulge in his student's childhood dreams (which in this case, are sponsored by the Disney Corporation).
+ a staged classroom battle and eventual consensus over candidates for 'remake' (close competitors included Terminator 2, Harry Potter & LOTR).
+ each student given two 15 second segments of LK to remake.

chaos ensues
