sadescription a/través (crossing)
10mn40   color   stereo   2003   Brazil
by Kika Nicolela
The simple act of crossing rhe street. A banal, daily act, shared by thousands of people in the same city in a single moment ; a corporal mass without identity. In the flux, the comfortable sensation of being anonymous. Suddenly, a rupture happens. The body releases itself and becomes free. This body in suspense starts to express a will and to reinvent itself. But which way should it choose ?

7mn20   color   stereo   2003   Australia
by Scott Morrison
The piece came about through creative frustation, I had dedicated a lot of time to a specific idea, a hope reallyand it seemed as though it was becoming fruitless. This piece is about the journey and the distance we travel when we hold onto these ideas, these hopes. Can the idea, the dream hold longer when the believer of this cannot.

sadescription Don't touch me when I start to feel safe
4mn30   color   stereo   2003   Austria
by Brigitta Bödenauer
The video is dealing with systems of safeness represented by architecture and the body as reliable structures that are being intervened by moments of "touch" from "outside". Those interferences produce a fragile stability, a constant repetition of fading, melting, collapsing and recomposing. To the sound of Ivan Pavlov (COH) - in a final cascade of backbones,statues and urban environments - the image itself starts absorbing this rhythm of fluctuation between security and irritation.

sadescription Extase
23mn   color   stereo   2003   France
by collectif Pixelles
To move away from the temptation of realism specific to the film X Sampler, to tally images and the sounds of pornographic films to transgress the codes fixed by the kind. To lead the spectator to move his glance The video drops and screen take part in this process by revealing nature of the representation: its surface, its materiality. The realignment restores the strangeness of the bodies and the faces. The images are released from their initial function. The model is moved and leaves place with sensitive, with the individual. The mechanical bodies find an identity. In fact then icons, in a new breath start to dance...

sadescription Gourd
13mn   color   stereo   2004   Japan
by Tomomi Adachi
"Gourd" is the second recorded video work. All images was generated improvisationaly by realtime videofeedback system with 1 TV monitor, 2 cameras and self-made video filter/mixer. He didn’t use any edits and post productions except a little noise removal. In final part, there are some destructive digital noises were caused by the error of AD convector. These kind of noises are an important element of these piece.The images reflect the physical performance in unforeseen situation and recoll the abstruct movement of music. It will be a kind of visual music. Soudtrack was recorded perfect separately from image. But the sound share a concept of image generating; feedback and digital clip noise. Finally, the image and sound form the polyphony.

sadescription Inbetween
6mn   b/w   stereo   2003   USA
by Dale Wilson & Astra Price
Focusing on light and texture, Inbetween is a study of signal and image decay between the anlog and digital world of film and video. Starting as found 16mm film, the material has been interpreted and modified as it moves back and forth between digital and analog processing systems. Images of airplanes dominate, their suspension is associated with the space that surrounds them; they are neither her nor there, but repetitively percing on screen space. They move to the long, low sounds originated through audio loops created in an Internet streaming process. The edge of the frame also acknowledges what is usually not seen, making its presence known as a reoccuring element. While the video itself was born out of technical inquiry, the tonality located in the emotional; the distance created via processing evokes longing, and disquiet.

sadescription Internal friction
5mn30   color & b/w   stereo   2003   France
by Ariane Maugery
"Internal Friction" consists of energy constellations of heterogeneous intensities. These particulate entities interact by resonance between multiple levels of perception, in echo with concave and convex territories subjected to a constant redefinition of scale. The continuity of perception is laminated and made spasmodic by a dynamic and dialogical evolution between the local components and the total movement spiralic.

The ballerina locked up who still tries to exist, to carry out her function symbolizes the adult locked up in the memory of childhood, represented by the closed box. At the same time protection and asylum,which puts a side of the external world which seems inhospitable. The place effect/towards image symbolizes the reversal of time, of attention.

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 Memosium
6mn40   color & b/w   stereo   2002   France
by Louis Dupont
"Memosium" is articulated like a concerto in three movements. The camera, the body and space have each one there their tempo but these three movements are played simultaneously. The account seems amnesic of its plans and the character. The events are reiterated infinitely. One is in a time of repetition... In addition, the acceleration and the geometrical multiplication of the movement, the complexity of the activities of the character, their mathematical cutting and the infinite rearrangement of the body give to the spectator a new conscience time, without assigned limits. Only the escape (death?) can allow to escape from this prison time.

sadescription precarious
10mn   color   stereo   2004   USA
by Ellen Zweig
"Precarious" is a meditation on moments when life teeters on a cliff, when memories of the unstable world enter the safe suburban kitchen. A series of interview with my father, acrobats in a circus, a car on fire in the parking lot outside my apartment; nothing is ever safe enough from the possibility of falling. Rephotographed Super-8 film cut with digital video.

This video Installation designed to ravel in loop, tries to expose a time which passes. The aesthetic simplicity of the image, the tiny action are there as well as possible to expose time in its unfolding more believed. Here it is the daily newspaper which is let see. The loop made up of 112 numerical photographs, represents somebody who passes from the position upright, of a half-turn then of one return to the position lying. Horizontal representation of a time dial, one day standard in its destitution...

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.

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 Untitled
4mn   b/w   stereo   2003   Republic of Ireland
by Ciaran O Cearnaigh
This short experimental piece is based on the life of 18th Century Irish patriot Anne Devlin. She was captured, interrogated and questioned by soldiers during the first organised armed rebellion in Ireland in 1798. A rebellion which was directly influenced by the success of the French Revolution. On being questioned and tortured in jail she refused to speak or give any answers. Because of her silence, members of her family were executed by hanging. The video explores the idea of silence as being not a sign of weakness - but an act of defiance. The Irish actress Brid Brennan appears in the video. She originally played the role of Anne Devlin in Irish film director Pat Murphys 1983 Film, ANNE DEVLIN.

sadescription Wave / Wake
8mn40   color   stereo   2002   USA
by Brook Hinton
"Wave/Wake" (2002) examines emotional states before and after a cataclysmic event. Beginning with a suggestion of ocean waves braking and receding, the piece places ordinary phenomena in the shadow of the 9/11/01 attack on New York and Washington DC through temporal manipulation of both media coverage and street videography. The piece functions as an emotional record and as a critique of mass media response to tragedy.
