"The project 100x100=900 (100 videoartits to tell a century) was born with this goal. It will celebrate the anniversary of 2013, conventionally considered the 50th year of videoart (dated from a Nam June Paik video installation in Germany).
100 videoartists, from all continents, will be invited to participate in this project. Every of them will produce a video artwork inspired by one of the previous 100 years, a century. The pairings will be done randomly. All the videos will form a show that will be taked around the world during 2013."
My Year is 1956.
"At 11:22 PM, July 25, 1956, while navigating through a dense fog, the Andrea Doria and the Swedish freighter, Stockholm, collided. This disaster has no logical explanation. Eleven hours after the collision, the Andrea Doria was gone. Out of the 1,706 passengers on board,46 were killed, mostly due to the initial impact of the collision.
Today, the Andrea Doria lies on her starboard side in 240 feet of water."
