    Installation-room: Fridge, three Super 8 Loops with timer

    The three super-8 film loops will never be shown simultaneously. A specially tuned program with three digital timers ensures that each loop alternates exactly in 10 minute interval.
    The large fridge from which the recordings were made in the studio at HGK Basel was placed on the wall in the show room where with its closed door it functions as a screen.
    In one particular case the fridge is very important as a projection screen: The continuous projection of an opening and closing door covering the real closed door so that the onlooker is irritated by the reality shift of a virtual opening door with the real closed door.
    As a result there is a strange mixture of the virtual reality with real reality.
    Next to the fridge around the corner there is a tiled section of the wall with a sink.
    On this wall a slide show was running of portraits of persons in front of their own fridge with the described scenery conveying the impression of a kitchen-like atmosphere.

    TRT: this presentation: 00:01:21 minutes
    TRT: actual video: 00:00:30 seconds looped
    DVD Video: installation, edition of 5
    DVD Video: Single channel video on a monitor, edition of 10

    DVD player, wood construction, cement block, saw dust, dimensions variable

    This video shows the latest concept for the video installation. A wooden crate is set on top of rustic bricks and saw dust is spread out on the floor. Each particular site will determine the quantity and area of saw dust - the largest area possible is desired for the correct effect. Appearing through a circular hole, cutout in the center of a small wooden crate is the image of a hamster endlessly digging/clawing. He is rying to scratch his way to an imagined freedom. The audio portion plays sounds of a continuous ticker-tape machine synchronized to the hamster’s scratching and then occasionally, a “cha-ching” of a cash register is heard.

    The video is humorous look at contemporary "work equals reward" driven lifestyles. The projection is a social comment of the absurd and addresses issues of want vs. need, in our consumer driven society. It reflects on a society more and more trapped in a repetitive pattern, ultimately leading no where.

    Single channel monitor display: The screen is blacked out, except for a circular area in the center.

  4. A video projected image from ceiling to floor - into an inflatable kiddy pool. "Round and round she goes, where she'll stop nobody knows...." is painted on the outside of the pool. The "carnival hawker's cry" urges people passing by to try their luck at a game of chance. The swimmer circling round and round, looking for an escape route, is a coming of age metaphor - youth seeking its escape route from the nest/home and out to the world/future of chance.

This channel provides video clips from/about performing artists working with low-tech art medias.
The clips can be examples from their work but also ready-to-show art works ..
"low-tech" means for me:
-The work is focused on the object, the content and the message of the clip instead of showing of with a high-end perfection like we see it in comercial spots and film-trailers everyday.
-it is obviously not matching the state of the art in high-end video and animation technics in pre- and post production.
-the low-tech artists may use minimalistic effects such as Super8 footage, mirroring, double exposures, repeating and color- and speed manipulation for the underlining of the message.
- no message is also a message!....;)
