Alejandro G., A Shared Silence

Alejandro G., A Shared Silence, 2013, Digital Video, 5:58 Final Project, ARTV-320 Film + Video Art, Spring 2013

“A man looks directly at the camera and proceeds to apply another reality to his face, revealing a desert landscape. Using greenscreen compositing techniques, this video depicts the performative action of applying a mask and then removing it laboriously and thoroughly—the mask being a projection, desire, memory and/or psychological state.” — Alejandro G.

Wild Wild Waves -‘Silence’

Wild Wild Waves – expression
Definition : live electronic band from Lyon (France) with double bass, vibraphone, electronically modified drums and machines.
Vocation : to paint some sound pictures with hybrid frequencies and textures. To make people dance.

This video was filmed basing on the theme of rotation and perpetual movement, by using numerous techniques such as timelapse, hyperlapse and infinite zoom. This psychedelic music video shows the will of the director to stay in the pre-digital era with an craft preparation : from the cutting to the drawings, through subjects filmed on a green screen.

Director : Thomas Blanchard
Lighting Technician : Maud Regnault

Peer Bode

Working in film until the early 1970s, Peer Bode was first exposed to electronics by his father Harold Bode, a developer of the first modular audio synthesizer. He worked as program coordinator for the Experimental Television Center in Owego, New York, collaborating with resident artist/engineers in constructing prototype imaging tools, thus continuing his commitment to “tool expansion” and “personal studio making.” Recognizing the limits imposed by designers of industrial and consumer technology, Bode sought to externalize the “hidden coding and control structures” of the video signal. His videotapes investigate the semiotics and phenomenology of the medium, specifically through the synthesis of audio and video signals.
