Video Hackspace



meta-creation_date: 10/2/2013 07:16:15 Fabrizio D'Amico from Video Hackspace came over. We talked about doing a visual circuit bending workshop soon. It was very pleasant.

I borrowed a projector and he filmed some of my pictures with his telephone. Then he uploaded them to Youtube. Here they are:



Also, I had a very nice/strange night. More things soon.

Night shift revisited



It's been close to a year now since I had the Night Shift show at Simon Oldfield Gallery. Yesterday, I was surprised in a very very nice way by Rebecca Helen Page, who has filmed bits of the performance I've done there and uploaded them to Vimeo.

It was quite a noisy performance with very weird sound and I had very short hair at that time.

The desk I had my instruments on was absolutely gorgeous. It felt like my own private TARDIS.

Thanks a lot Rebecca.

Night Shift

Katy Kirbach & Simon Schäfer

Private View
7 September 2011, 18.30 — 20.30
 

Exhibition continues to
28 September 2011


Night Shift explores the relationship between painting, sculpture and performance with new work by Simon Schäfer and Katy Kirbach.  

The exhibition examines the tension between the handmade and ready-made; multiplicity and uniqueness; live event and still object; the diurnal and nocturnal.  Night Shift is visually and aurally layered with texture, sound, digital feeds, colour and analogue electronics.

Give me a nice little twirl...



Downloaded a plugin to make gifsicle work with Gimp. You can find it here. If you ever were annoyed with the overall quality of your gifs, YOU WILL BE AMAZED. Only for Linux, though. But you might as well consider getting a proper operating system, too. Eat your heart out, Photoshop.

New work for an upcoming show is on its way.

Here's a small Vorgeschmack for both:

An old-ish gif I just found in my (mostly abandoned) Myspace-account.

Back to Nijmegen on 19th of July



Still feeling kind of deflated from taking down the show (and all of last weeks antics), I have to start taking care about future endeavours. There's a few more applications to be written and I seriously despise Artist statements, so this is gonna be .

But there's a few pleasant things coming up as well:

First of all, on 19.07.2011 der Warst will gloriously return to Nijmegen, where he's gonna play at the de-affaire festival

Also, now that I suddenly have way more time on my hands than I can handle, I really need to think about doing that DVD for Hand baked records.

I'll probably make some quick'n'dirty CD for Nijmegen, too.

Oh, and a lot of my gear seriously needs to go to the maintenance bay...

Keine Atempause, Geschichte wird gemacht.

I lost my phone...



Ich habs im Bus liegen lassen, also kann von gestohlen eigentlich nicht die Rede sein.

Trotzdem:

Scheise.

pure evil



Whoever manages to watch (and listen to) this until the end without suffering serious damage and later proves it to me, wins a pair of used socks or something:

Das Rotari ist tot



War abzusehen, ist trotzdem schade.

Ein Youtubefilmchen zeugt von ausreichender Durchhalterei und schrecklicher Musik zum Schluss. Ich hätte ja lieber den ganzen Abend aggressiv gefeiert, aber irgendwie hielten es so gut wie alle für nötig, ihre weinerlichsten Platten mitzubringen. Na gut, stimmt nich ganz, aber irgendwie hätte ich mir die Stimmung anders gewünscht.

Mit freundlicher Unterstützung von Greencon



Es wurde anlässlich der in Bonn stattfindenden äh... Weltkonferenz für Biodiversität (oder wie das Ding halt hieß) vom Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung und dem Naturkundemuseum Bonn ein Schnellfilm-Wettbewerb veranstaltet, an dem sich mir Nahestehende Filmstudenten beteiligten.
Es galt, innerhalb von 40 Stunden einen möglichst guten Film zusammenzukloppen und auf den bereitgestellten Server zu hieven.
Startzeit war 8 Uhr morgens oder so, ich stieß erst gegen 1 Uhr Nachts zum Team um den Ton für Evas Animationssequenzen beizusteuern und blieb dabei bis Schluss war. Alles in allem ein feiner Spaß.



letzten Samstag war dann dann die Vorführung/Siegerehrung in Bonn. Wichtige Leute aus aller Welt schwafelten uns die selben Sprüche vor, die wir halt alle schon seit ewig kennen. Immerhin fand das ganze ja auch unter dem außergewöhnlich fantasievollen Thema "Kurz vor 12" statt. Die meisten anderen Festivalbeiträge waren dann auch entsprechend. Bei so Betroffenheitsthemen ist ja in der Regel abzusehen, was sich die Leute für kröses Gewäsch aus den Synapsen pressen.
Wer's nicht glaubt, schaue sich unter folgender Adresse gefälligst sämtliche Beiträge an: http://de.youtube.com/schnellfilm.
