An interview with David Stodolsky, member of the Cryonics Institute, who guides us trough the Building-Monument built over the previous house of Walter Gropius in Dessau, Germany. Renovated by Bruno Fioretti Marquez Architects in 2008, the construction reproduces the original volume of Gropius` house. In the film, the house works as a metaphor of what is fossilized. The idea of Modernism remains in this case in a fossil state, and survives in time as a trace of what once was. This video is part of a reflection on the act of conservation (of ideas, of bodies) as a human activity.

Esteban Rivera, Bogotá, Colombia (1981). He is finishing his Master studies in Art and Media in the Arts University in Berlin (Universität der Künste, Berlin) under Prof. Ai Weiwei and also as student of Prof. Anna Anders.

?Some things didn?t really matter, you know, some mutations didn?t matter all that much?they were neither beneficial to survival nor detrimental to survival?but if they just hung on, there?d come a time when?that was the thing that saved the day.? Charting the beginnings of the time, through the descent of man, on to an uncertain future - all shot throughout the seasons in the garden of S, who lives in the wilderness and builds contraptions.

There is a Happy Land Further Awaay
Film expérimental | 16mm | couleur et n&b | 20:0 | Royaume-Uni | 2015

THERE IS A HAPPY LAND FURTHER AWAAY (20 mins, S16, col/b+w, 2015) There Is A Happy Land Further Awaay (2015), captures the landscapes of the remote volcanic Republic of Vanuatu archipelago, before they were devastated by Cyclone Pam in early 2015, the footage becoming a ghostly document of an ecosystem now irrevocably altered. A hesitant female voice reads a poem by Henri Michaux, recounting a life lived in a distant land, full of faltering and mistakes. Island imagery of active volcanoes, underwater WW2 debris, children playing, and wrecked boats transform into intangible digital recollections of the island, made on the opposite side of the world. Images of the eroded land merge with eroding film, a lone figure on a boat drifts at sea.

Ben Rivers (born in 1972) is an artist and experimental filmmaker based in London. His work has been shown in many film festivals and galleries around the world and has won numerous awards. His work ranges from themes about exploring unknown wilderness territories to candid and intimate portrayals of real-life subjects. Rivers`s practice as a filmmaker treads a line between documentary and fiction. Often following and filming people who have in some way separated themselves from society, the raw film footage provides Rivers with a starting point for creating oblique narratives imagining alternative existences in marginal worlds. Rivers uses near-antique cameras and hand develops the 16 mm film, which shows the evidence of the elements it has been exposed to – the materiality of this medium forming part of the narrative.

?What would be left of human action, human traces, human constructions, human buildings and wider ripple effects of humans after that length of time?assuming, that humans disappear in the geologically near future.? A fragmented road trip through Britain on the peripheries. Down empty roads, off in the wilderness, a few lone stragglers. My first stop geologist Jan Zalasiewicz, talking about the Earth in One-hundred millions years time.

Ben Rivers studied Fine Art at Falmouth School of Art. Since then he has worked predominantly in 16mm film, showing in international festivals, galleries and UK theatres. Recent works have included two commissions from Paul Harnden Shoemakers ? making works which fall somewhere between documentary and fiction. These works are then exhibited in mock miniature cinemas in boutiques in Japan, Europe and USA. His latest work is an ongoing series of portraits of people living somehow outside of (the generally accepted idea of) society. The first part ? ?This Is My Land?, was premiered at London Film Festival 2006 and exhibited by Measure Arts in London 2007. In 1996, Ben co-founded and has since co-managed/programmed Brighton Cinematheque - renowned for screening a unique programme of film from its earliest days through to the latest artist?s film and video.

Ce film retravaillé à la main montre des milliers de personnes faisant l'ascension d'un terrain sur une montagne rocheuse. La destination et l'objet de leur ascension restent obscurs. Un pèlerinage incertain, mystérieux et troublant pavé d'intentions inconnues. Le titre "The Coming Race" est tiré d'un roman de l'époque victorienne de E.G.E Bulwer-Lytton portant sur un peuple vivant sous une montagne.

Fortunate Isles: Landings
Vidéo | hdv | noir et blanc | 3:50 | USA | 2016

Drawing upon the name of earthly paradise in Greek mythology, the film ‘Fortunate Isles: Landings’ explores the awakening of sentience and biological complexity within digital images. To fully inhabit utopian and cinematic visions of analog & digital interpretations of landscape, ‘Fortunate Isles: Landings’ is filmed on location at sites of human achievement and continuous habitation; the level Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah and remote cliffs of Salvage, Newfoundland. During filming, performers wore chroma-key suits on location that, in post-production, allow the suit’s geometric faces to be digitally blanked and replaced with hand-drawn animation. Through the dialogue of gaps and joins created by the subtle collapsed spaces between layers of inter-narrative animation, questions of evolution, reality, and wonder begin to surface. The figures each carry a drawn experience inscribed into their outer forms. A patina of frames progressing forward echoes an imprinted memory; Landscapes are portable.

Jacob Rivkin is an interdisciplinary artist living and working in Philadelphia, PA, USA. His animations and sculptures focus on how we experience and internalize landscape, memory, and desire. His work has exhibited widely, including at the Arlington Arts Center, the Chemical Heritage Foundation Museum, the Vancouver Art Gallery, the Animation Block Party, and the National Museum of Australia. He holds lecturer positions at the University of Pennsylvania and the Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University. He received his MFA from the University of Pennsylvania in 2013 and BA from Vassar College in 2007. His awards include selection as a finalist for the anthropoScene Film Competition in 2016, a Fulbright Student Grant in 2008 to study Chinese Traditional Landscape Painting in Hangzhou, China, and the Weitzel Barber Art Travel Prize in 2006 to study Buddhist Sculpture Practices in Western China. He is a member of the OOF Animation Collective and in 2014 he was an Artist-in-Residence at the Hacktory in Philadelphia, PA.

Yasujiro Journey
Fiction expérimentale | dv | couleur | 46:0 | Indonésie | 2006

"Yasujiro?s Journey" fait le portrait de l`errance fictionnelle de Yasujiro Yamada qui, en 2002, voyage en Indonésie à la recherche du grand père dont il a reçu le nom. Ce grand père a apparemment été un soldat japonais qui a survécu à un crash d`avion au dessus de l`Indonésie, sur sa route vers Pearl Harbor en 1942, mais qui n`est jamais rentré chez lui. Le voyage du jeune homme n`est pas tant une quête au sens littéral pour retrouver le vieil homme, mais est une recherche spirituelle, dans ce paysage étranger que son ancêtre a parcouru. Le fait qu`il ne trouve pas ce qu`il cherche, et que c`est lui-même qu`il ne trouve pas, est particulièrement significatif dans l`une des scènes du film, où il empile des pierres qui emplissent la hauteur de l`écran, puis s`éloigne, est insatisfait, les renverse et construit à nouveau un monticule. Le son du vent, très présent tout au long du film, fonctionne comme un avertissement, comme si un démon socratique l`avertissait d`une erreur. Le thème du voyage est central dans ce film, et dans l`?uvre du cinéaste. Il interroge également son pays natal et les générations antérieures, qui n`ont pas vécu dans un environnement urbain. Faozan Rizal veut aussi explorer le paysage du point de vue d`un étranger, et il est significatif que le protagoniste de cette errance soit un Japonais.


Faozan Rizal est un jeune cinéaste indonésien. Ses films ont fait l`objet d`une rétrospective non officielle au 18ème festival international du film de Singapour en 2005. Il a réalisé plusieurs courts métrages de type expérimental, ou se situant aux frontières de différentes pratiques. Il explore les propriétés et les textures du film, explorant les régions entre cinéma et photographie. Il a également réalisé une série de moyens métrages, d`environ 30 minutes, en collaboration avec la danseuse Katia Engel, dans lesquels la danse et la photographie sont si intimement unies que ce serait une erreur de les décrire comme de simples films expérimentaux. Il serait en effet difficile d`imaginer la performance indépendamment de sa retranscription dans le film. L`imbrication de différentes formes d`art n`est pas surprenante dans le travail de Faozan Rizal, qui a étudié et pratiqué la danse javanaise dans sa jeunesse, et qui a étudié la peinture avant de s`inscrire à la Fémis. Il a été acteur, directeur de la photographie, scénariste et réalisateur. Son travail se situe au-delà de la narration linéaire. Il exprime des sentiments et transmet des idées par la juxtaposition d`images concrètes et spécifiques, par la répétition de mouvements, l`usage de longs plans séquences. Ses films ne sont pas transparents au niveau de la narration, mais le son y est hautement significatif. Rizal n`a pas abandonné l`idée de récit d`histoires, mais il abandonne ce qui n`est pas nécessaire au c?ur essentiel de la narration, c?ur qui est l`essence de toute narration.

Film expérimental | 16mm | couleur | 10:45 | USA | 2006

Apprendre à aimer à nouveau, tout en ayant peur, le film alterne entre le romantique et l'horrible, en donnant une forme tour à tour sceptique et indulgente à l'expérience du beau. Un monologue de Frank O'Hara (provenant d'une pièce de théâtre du même nom) tente de miner la sincérité du paysage, mais des forces plus puissantes font surface.


Depuis l'an 2000, Michael Robinson a réalisé un ensemble de films, vidéos et oeuvres photographiques qui explorent la poétique de la perte et les dangers du travail médiatisé. Son travail a été projeté au cours de représentations tantôt personnelles, tantôt collectives, à l'occasion de divers festivals, cinémathèques et galeries, dont le Festival International du Film de Rotterdam, le New York Film Festival, le Times BFI London Film Festival, Media City, Anthology Film Archives, Viennale, Cinematexas, le Wexner Center for the Arts, ICA London, Impakt, le Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Chicago Filmmakers, PDX, et le Festival du Film International de San Francisco, d'Oberhausen, et de Hong Kong. Son film "You Don't Bring Me Flowers" a été élu "Meilleur Film International" au Festival de l'Image de Toronto en 2006, "Meilleur Film du Festival" à l'Underground Film Festival de Milwaukee en 2006, et Michael s'est vu attribuer le prix du "Meilleur Espoir de la Réalisation" à l'Ann Arbor Film Festival en 2007. Originaire du Nord de New York, Michael a obtenu un Bachelor of Fine Arts à l'Ithaca College, et un Master of Fine Arts à l'University of Illinois à Chicago. Il réside actuellement à Chicago.

Krystle can't stop crying, Alexis won't stop drinking, and the fabric of existence hangs in the balance, again and again and again. – MR "The Dark, Krystle brilliantly re-purposes the artificiality of stock gesture, allowing viewers to see its hollowness and to feel it recharging with new emotional power. Equal parts archival fashion show and feminist morality play, Robinson’s montage rekindles the unfinished business of identity, consumption, and excess in 1980s pop culture." - Carrie Secrist Gallery, Chicago

A modern prophet’s visions of mythical destruction and transformation are recounted across a turbulent geometric ceremony of rising curtains, swirling set pieces, and unveiled idols from music television’s past. Together, these parallel cults of revelation unlock a pathway to the far side of the sun.

INFLECTIONS
Vidéo | dv | noir et blanc | 3:0 | Espagne | Hong Kong | 2012

INFLECTIONS is a real-time generative system that temporally rearranges video sequences based on mathematical equations. It explores the relationship between duration, simultaneity, and expectation. The technical concept of the work is based on the idea of a one-dimensional random walk: a mathematical representation of a journey along a linear path. The path contains several nodes or decision points. At each node along the path, the walker decides at random whether to go forward or backwards. In this work, the ?path? is the timeline of a movie clip. The program identifies a set of "inflection points" (or ?decision points?) along this timeline. An inflection point is a moment that contains no motion, where movement comes to a standstill. It is thus a good point to change direction. Imagine now the computer program walking along a movie timeline. When it reaches one of those inflection points, it makes a yes-no decision, either to go forward or move back. In this project, the walk is not random, because the program relies on some non-linear dynamical equation to make each decision. Inflections uses equations that exhibit chaotic behavior and for this reason can be used to simulate a random process.

J?ai demandé aux habitants du camp Aïda à Bethléem d?esquisser des cartes de ce qui les entoure. Les dessins en train de se faire ont été enregistrés en vidéo, de même que les récits qui animent ces géographies subjectives. À travers six chapitres qui forment autant de courts-métrages potentiellement indépendants, vous découvrirez pas à pas le camp de réfugiés et ses environs, vous suivrez les trajets d`hommes, de femmes et d`enfants et leurs tentatives aventureuses de composer avec l?état de siège sous lequel ils vivent. Un hommage à ce que j?appellerai résistance par contournement, à l?heure où la possibilité même de cette résistance semble disparaître.


Till Roeskens, né en 1974 à Freiburg (Allemagne), vit à Marseille. Amateur de géographie appliquée, Till Roeskens appartient à la famille des artistes-explorateurs. Son travail se développe dans la rencontre avec un territoire donné et ceux qui tentent d?y tracer leurs chemins. Ce qu?il ramène de ses explorations, que ce soit sous la forme d?un livre, d?un film vidéo, d?une conférence-diaporama ou autres formes légères, ne se voudrait jamais un simple rapport, mais une invitation à l?exercice du regard, un questionnement permanent sur ce qu?il est possible de saisir de l?infinie complexité du monde. Ses « tentatives de s?orienter » s?élaborent avec le souci récurrent de toucher un public non averti et de rendre les personnes rencontrées co-auteurs de l??uvre. A exercé entre autres au Plateau à Paris, à la Forteresse de Salses, à la Villa Saint-Clair à Sète, au Musée d?Art Moderne et Contemporain et au CEAAC à Strasbourg (Bourse de la Ville de Strasbourg), à Langage Plus (Québec), au Musée d?Art Moderne de Collioure (Prix Collioure), aux divers FRAC : Alsace, Languedoc-Roussillon et PACA où il élabore actuellement un premier long métrage documentaire. A récemment remporté le Grand Prix de la compétition française au FID (Festival International du Documentaire de Marseille) 2009.

Die Idee zum Clip "It`s a small world" entstand, als ich in auf einem Flohmarkt in Los Angeles ein Fotoalbum kaufte, in dem alte Polaroidfotografien einer amerikanischen Familie zu sehen sind. Der kurze Film ist eine Art Hommage an das längst vergangene Südkalifornien der sechziger Jahre und stellt die Reise nach, die die fotografierten Personen damals unternomen haben.
