SUMMER FILM WORKSHOPS

This year’s summer workshops will broaden cycle of presentations of PARAKINO. Practical actions organized by Michał Brzeziński and Arjon Dunnewind ( Dutch IMPAKT Festival director) will take place. Structure of the workshops will be similar to the dialog of audiovisual presentations prepared by the moderators. There will be an opportunity to see the newest works promoted by organizations, awarded on festivals, as well as get acquainted with history of experimental cinema within the help on particular works. System of esthetical references in which these works will appear will be a source for discussion and creation of works. Ways of reevaluating and sorting creative space, which are operated by European structures of organizations taking care about promotion of art, will be another field for discussion, and participants will have opportunity, by using their own audiovisual forms make their own answers, enriching this discourse of the contemporary art. They will also master practical knowledge about those dominant contexts.

FAIL and FAKE as AESTHETIC OF NEW MEDIA


http://postvideoart.wordpress.com/2009/04/09/fail-and-fake-and-aesthetic-of-new-media/

[...] Video usualy is presented on dvd or DV tapes, or on youtube, vimeo… All of these mediums are kind of vocabulary but digital video is like virus existing in diferrent media. This specific kind of image is connected with device and time of popularity of it. Digital video is something more than that. Digital image is simulating those effects of devices and this simulation is FAKE! As in my work MANDALA from 2001 where i had explored bad half images synchronisation, and codec errors mixed with small resolution of image.

But it was just part of creative process and all of these errors was my way to find special kind of effects, and finaly it was burned in DVD. So every DVD player makes fake because it is not creating errors, he is plaing his role in perfect way, but we see failure. As many other kinds of ERROR music those video was fake. It is unusual to see the cellular phone video in cellular phone device. Usualy we can see it in the cinema or on the wall of gallery in HD resolution monitors or projected from good beamers. This viral migration of image, triumph of failure of technology is faked. All other sampled noices, technics of failure aesthetic, or simulations of 16mm or 8mm films are the same in the digital video vocabulary. Does not matter if you are using old film effect or effect of pixelisation. All this vocabulary is vocabulary of fakes. Fake needs failure to extend his vocabulary. But video is Fake like any other kind of language. [...]
