Re: miniscencje


Reconstruction of verbal identity code is an opportunity to visually verify the relationship of culture and subject (person). Reconstruction of this was the main axis of the video of my work, but the new project uses interactivity and processuality of modern tools of creation and presentation. It allows me to go beyond the hitherto developed methods of work (generative and cascade). Re: miniscencje are an attempt to give video art events unique performative dimension, more personality creator a precondition for the time and energy. Video footage is remixed on the fly and live they create new, more robust, multi-structures. They are the next step of development meditation video. Videos will be stored in a spontaneous dialogue between public power and the energy part of well-known works. Game of the video materials is an experiment with the creation of the tasks performed by operating on the border of the suspension of the computer. Playing with the unpredictability of interest to me as a transition from the aesthetics of liquidity, videomantry, trance and meditation, to the ecstatic intoxication noise, images and sounds generated by loaded straight from the perspective of human manipulation, but the computer require the conversion of huge amounts of data. Semantic of these transformations is the human mind as time-consuming and sometimes results in similar effects. So here there is a similar transition from saturation aesthetic pleasure of looking at the small forms, from false sense of understanding of the media often ironic photographs enlarged to unify many of the synthetic sample sizes in one dynamic transmission. The project is diferrent from my other major film projects, and diferrence is the basic dynamic of video-identity of post-humanity, which does not have a closed film structure, but transforms and adapts to the current situation. The computer is not a metaphor for the mind - is its extension.

IMAGO MVNDI (2002) remastered in 2010


http://postvideoart.wordpress.com/2010/10/31/imago-mvndi-2002-remastered-in-2010/

IMAGO MVNDI is the first known to me Polish digital & structural film where layer of material was put as the subject. Coding/decoding errors it contains video files - so today called as data moshing, and errors in the definition interlace in video that has been used as a deliberate visual effects that was used on multilayer composition to express unification of inner and outer landscapes. Layer of contents provides a sort of private prayer, connecting issues of territorial and spiritual identity, which was so simple and devoid of irony expression was rejected by me in subsequent works of art because of the possibility of overusing the various nationalist movements. The film was pushed to the margins as dangerous, but an intimate spiritual adventure in which the religious syncretism is poured into the form of Catholicism, and attachment to territory. Film was inspired by works of Stan Brakhage that I read about only in Ryszard W. Kluszczynski book (Film, Video, Multimedia).
