IN OUT Festival 2011

Mon Aug 01, 2011 00:00

Gdańsk, Poland

The fifth IN OUT Festival 2011
"This year’s edition of the IN OUT Festival has introduced several changes to the rules of presentations and awarding. We encourage you to read the rules and the application card very carefully. The first change is about presentation of the videos in two sections during the Festival. The first section will be for those videos which used to be the only subject of the previous editions, which is videos exploring medium aesthetics and referring to the video and film concept as “photography enhanced” by the time dimension. The second section will be devoted to “visual narrations”, which doesn’t mean giving space to action movies or feature films. This new part of the festival wants to show works of artists who build wider and more complex forms of artistic expression based on the video-identity idea. The videos are then supposed to provide a powerful statement on issues that are fundamental for culture: “who I am, where I come from, where I am and where I am going to”. We hope that the statements will be formulated in a language of plain images and not abstract verbal notions. We also hope that the participating artists will choose to show works which put together
the environment of contemporary media with the environment of their own domestic scene and also with their individual internal experience shown with forms referring to a structural movie. If a video is an internal screen for the imagination, then the pictures produced by a medium which has been purposefully and creatively damaged will give images of a pure structure of a video, and thus will be a metaphor of pure perceptual structure which will introduce their value by neighbouring with the world of various media experience.”
Curator of the Festival: Michał Brzeizński

a) visual narrations: 2000PLN

Works complete with an application card must be submitted until 1st August 2011.

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.
