  2. 28 min., color, sound

    Produced by Paper Tiger TV
    Conceived, written and performed by Joan Braderman. Co-directed and edited with Manuel De Landa.

    Beginning with her own fascination with tabloids like the National Enquirer, the artist started her work in performance video in this brilliant and disturbing satire about popular culture and its ubiquitous place in our lives. In her original style, now dubbed "stand-up theory", she delivers a "one woman, lunatic performance, at once embodying and sharply analyzing the schizophrenia of U.S. culture." An unreconstructed lover of tabloid fantasy, Braderman takes us on a personal tour of headlines and photos we hate to love.

  3. My take on New York City crowds. Some effects involve tracking individual faces and a lot of masking work, others use multiple slices of the same shot, offset a few frames, to stretch all moving figures in strange ways.

  4. This is NYC using populations of particles as the means to do image processing. The music was done by layering loops downloaded from the net.

  5. Using multiple layers of the same shot and animating masks on each produces a wide variety of effects that fracture and distort the shot. These were used here for NYC buildings, to create a dissonant urban symphony. The music is classical piano pieces played backwards.
