sadescription Two or three things I know about Ohio
2mn16   color   mono   2002   USA
by Dan Boord & Luis Valdovino
"Two or three things I know about Ohio" is a charming parody of travel documentary and a quick funny American satire that pays homage to this Great Lakes state. Ohio is known for many things: the Amish, 19th Century farms, humidity, and small towns. Other little knows attractions include an annual parade of twins from all over the world, a live bait dispenser machine that competes with Pepsi for your dollar, the Longaberger Company World Headquaters...

sadescription Lumi
4mn   color   stereo   2003   Canada
by Nelly-Eve Rajotte
In this video the artist explore the fomal relationship between light and sound. Inspired of a obstructed elements of perspective shown in the works of De Chirico, she carrefully creates a sense of destruction through her video. In this manner the object (a field covered in snow with a mountain in the distance) is reduced to its formal components to arrive to auditive perspective not only a visual representation.

sadescription Starring L.A.
8mn10   color   stereo   2002   USA
by Spencer Stair
I started "Starring L.A." by taking a map of Los Angeles and drawing a circle around downtown. I then drew a five-point star inside the circle. I filmed from each of the points of the star for one full day. Because of the bad air quality in "L.A." it took almost a year to find five clear days. I then put the camera on my car and drove around the city along the line of the circle which I initially had drawn on the map. The image which I included with the videotape shows the five points from which I filmed and the area which is visible from the angle of the camera. Thus the viewable area of the video demarcates the body of the star. The path that I drove demarcates the circle around the star. The audio consists of sounds recorded during filming and thesound of a film projector. I believe by making this video I placed a curse on the entire city of Los Angeles.

sadescription Tokai
22mn40   color   stereo   2003   USA
by Jonathan Crow
This performance video addresses a conflict of spectatorships - dialectics relationship in memory, interpretation and reality. A young woman sits in front of the camera. Her face dramatically obscures by make-up and a synthetic wig. She describes a strange experience she had with her husband in a theater. The subject shows the inability to discourse the memory and personnal identity through the complexities of langage and logic. The justaposition of life videos is taken from three different perspectives. Memory, present and fantasy are unexpectedly synched and un-synched. There is an affair. Or is there? There is an actress. Or is there? This scenario dramatically raises the question of the realities through an experiment in narrative, performance and video.

Along the way I pass through Moa Utah, Monument Valley Arizona, and Zion National Park...
