Be Kind Rewind

Posted by Canto Rodado on January 31, 2008

Aqui tenemos una muestra deliciosa de lo que puede ser el arte audiovisual cuando no pretende ser demasiado serio o grandilocuente, cuando la narrativa se desdobla, la teatralidad se hace obvia y los papeles se invierten: Michel Gondry en Be Kind Rewind.

UBUWEB

Posted by Canto Rodado on January 10, 2008

la Web UBU es quizá la mas completa fuente de documentación sobre las vanguardias y las artes experimentales en su perspectiva histórica y mediática. Ensayos, manifiestos, textos críticos, archivos de audio, video, fotografía conforman este sitio que sabia y generosamente ha asumido la tarea de hacer accesible el bagaje de las artes más avanzadas, comprometidas y críticas. Cero interés comercial, excepto para los consabidos piratas del marqueting y la publicidad.

¿Quiere escuchar música de John Cage?, ¿Leer un manifiesto Situacionista?, ¿Ver un video de Laurie Anderson?, ¿Oir un poema sonoro Dadaista o acaso escuchar grabaciones originales dadaistas, surrealistas y futuristas?, ¿ Se acuerda de Maria Sabina la Chamana mexicana experta en curacion por medio del canto y los hongos alucinogenos?, Alli encontrara grabaciones de sus cantos y sesiones rituales terapeuticas. No lo dude UBU es la fuente primaria, haga la prueba e ingrese a la aventura del arte no objetual, del performance, el happening, la poesia experimental, etc.  http://www.ubu.com/

BlinkenPaint

Posted by Canto Rodado on August 14, 2006

Blinkenlights

Celebrating its 20th anniversary the Chaos Computer Club has made a special present to itself and the city of Berlin. From September 12th, 2001 to February 23rd, 2002, the famous “Haus des Lehrers” (house of the teacher) office building at Berlin Alexanderplatz has been enhanced to become world’s biggest interactive computer display: Blinkenlights (a term defined by the Jargon File).

The upper eight floors of the building were transformed in to a huge display by arranging 144 lamps behind the building’s front windows. A computer controlled each of the lamps independently to produce a monochrome matrix of 18 times 8 pixels.

During the night, a constantly growing number of animations could be seen. But there was an interactive component as well: you were able to play the old arcade classic Pong on the building using your mobile phone and you could place your own loveletters on the screen as well.

Blinkenlights was up and running at until February 23rd, 2002, running 23 weeks and 5 days in total. During that period, we constantly improved its feature set. Even now, work on Blinkenlights is not completed. The software has been released as Free Software under GPL. Our documentation video shows all aspects of the project in 11 minutes.

For the friends of Blinkenlights we have prepared a little trailer movie [MPEG-4 H.264, 2,8 MB]. If you want the soundtrack of the trailer have a look here.

BlinkenMovie

BlinkenPaint

You can create your own images and aminations for Blinkenlights. We provide you with a program for Windows and Mac OS to do easily build your own Blinkenlights Movies using the mouse.

If you want to add your Blinkenlights Movie to our archive, send them movies@blinkenlights.de. We collect everything and plan to publish the whole collection on the net soon.

How to use Blinkenpaint

Blinkenpaint is pretty easy to use. When it starts it presents you a distant view of the Blinkenlights building. Click on the windows to switch the light on or off. That way you can create simple pictures.

By adding of new images you create a movie. Every image has a certain delay time so that some images display longer and others shorter depending on the desired effect.

Use commands in the “Image” menu to perform operations on the image like inverting and rotating the content. The menu “Frame” may be used to set the delay time.

When you save the movie to disk, you create a Blinkenlights Movie.
