This is a post on personal behalf.
I’ve made a new short/videoclip/fashionfilm, you might want to check out.
You can find more info on the Vimeo Page.
It’s sorta like Erik Natzke’s print works as moving image: Jonathan Caplin uses Flash Re.Drawwer to loop through the frames of a video, looking at the pixel colours and then plot’s the results to a ‘canvas’. After ‘grabbing’ each rendered frame as a BMP with ZinC, he reassembles the output in AfterEffects to n ew versions of the original video footage.
On his blog he shows some more experiments with processing and real time video redrawing :)
An artistic visualization video that extracts and compares words, in realtime, by decoding rss feeds of 3 different news websites. The text is then decomposed and separated according to words frequency. The resulting structure interacts in real-time with audio frequencies, being partially sequenced. Video patch sends back triggers to audio section, generating audio-video interaction feedbacks. Words extracted and decontextualized are constantly remixed in the patch, obtaining new meanings or creating a kind of subliminal messages. Everytime the patch runs, structures, camera movement and the latest news change, making it an unpredictable experience.

You see those animated illustration-videos quite often again these days, so here’s a very nice one for your viewing pleasures:
“The Blackbird video is a music visualization project by Katja Schweiker and Thomas Frenzel. Both are working with an experimental approach on intermedia projects, striving for content generated designs.
This artwork was done for Michael Fakeschs audio-visual project called VIDOS—a collection of music visualizations based on Michaels latest album DOS. The video‘s design is based on visual samples that quote Michaels auditory style and mixes analog with digital elements—metaphors of the real and the immaterial. It‘s about trying and failure—trying to leave behind, trying to live in a forward-turned way, trying not to resign or surrender, trying to get aware.”
Greetings to Kai.
Transmediale is over and has been as always an inspiring experience! One of the most exciting events was the Generator.x project. It’s a project of Marius Watz which deals with the role of software and code in current art and design. The had a very atmospheric performance night, moreover a workshop and an exhibtion. Learn everything about the project on the website or watch the short videofeature I shot.
PROLOGUE, the world’s first adress for title design finally has a website!
Did not post any Motion Graphic Projects for a long time, but this one has to be spread!
Noah Harris does the beuatiful on air design for E4.
Amazing combination of RealAction, Stop Motion and CGI. What I truly adore is the feeling of non-perfection which gives the idents a very authentic but playful atmosphere.
At the Flip Animation Festival in Wolverhampton they’ll have a panel on the effects of YouToube on the Animation business.
“This panel discussion will look at the impact of new and emerging online platforms and tools and will ask what the opportunities are for animators and filmmakers and can online distribution and exhibition lead to professional commissions?”
It’s already over one week since I returned from the Video Vortex Conference in Brussels, but I’m still deeply moved by the amazing weekend! Thanks again to Stoffel, Maria, Andrea, Bram and the whole team at ARGOS for inviting me and organizing this exciting conference!
I will post some stuff I saw in Brussels within the next days but I’ll start with a selection of abstrakt short films I curated and that was shown at a screening evening at the conference. It’s called “Visual Poems - Abstract video works on the net” and you can see it online at the ARGOS Blog. There you’ll find the short films of the participating artists and some short interviews.
“Abstraction has been an important theme in the arts for over a century. Concerning the moving image there has been a strong tradition of abstraction from early experimental films to video art. The exploration of form has always been the exploration of the rules and functionalities of the particular medium.
20 years after the invention of the Internet moving images invade the medium. YouTube is already causing about 10% of the internet traffic worldwide, videos are seen by millions of users. But what is a typical web video? Are there already existing rules and thematical focal points in the YouTube world? Critics complain that you only need someone hurting himself in your video to get the big click on YouTube. Serious content or artistic expressions don’t arrouse enough attention and get lost in the digital nirvana.
So what about abstract or poetic web videos? Aren’t they objecting the rules of the medium by not impressing the viewer with fast food entertainment? Or are they by contrast indeed exploring the rules of the new medium by addressing issues like fragmentation or postmodernity?”
