1. The Mary Celeste Project (The Scene of The Crash)


    from john Ledger Added 136 2 0

    Video-work by John Ledger (2014) www.johnledger.wordpress.com This video work takes my previous video-work The West Riding of Yorkshire: A Psychogeographical Account and makes it more concise whilst taking certain aspects of the video further. Using (overly) familiar places, components in an eclectic and discontinuous urban area spanning the old West Riding county. Using this landscape to examine near pasts, lost futures and dead dreams to understand the wider contemporary social condition. The work focus’s on two lost futures and the un-locatable present, the condition of the which is largely caused by the loss of the previous, and their haunting presence. The first lost future is that of popular modernism, which died in the latter quarter of the 20th century. The second lost future being the naively optimistic early to mid 1990’s, and its utopianist gaze at the (then) coming new millennium. The un-locatable present, here refers to a specific intensification of life under digital capitalism, looking at the severe disorientation of the passing of time since the 2008 financial crisis. The video-work and wider, ongoing project has been inspired by the beautifully calm,yet highly politicised films of Patrick Keiller; Mark Fisher’s writings on Hauntology, and Fredric Jameson’s essay on Cognitive mapping. They have also be inspired by my own feelings of loss of narrative and of being out of time, amidst a feverishly neoliberal reality. Indeed the growing weight of this sense of being ‘out of time’ is what differs the original West Riding-based video-work with The Mary Celeste Project (The Scene of The Crime). The title of this video refers to an iconic ‘blip’ on the skyline of Barnsley town centre: a building that was abandoned half-way through completion due to the 2008 financial crash, as if the constructors had simply been zapped out of existence, and now exists as a ghost ship upon the inner ring road – haunting us with faded the utopianism of the 1989-2008 exuberant new capitalism. But the title refers to the entire subject of the film; that of a sense of a future that has vanished, leaving an empty shell of itself.

                from Michael McGlynn Added 6 0 0

                Every year Dodi, Noah, and I go to ArtPrize in Grand Rapids, Michigan. http://www.artprize.org/ There is art everywhere. It is scattered about the city, indoors and out. It is the brain-child of Rick DeVos. People are attracted to come see this art. Almost 500,000 people from 40+ countries make the trek to this annual event. What is ironic is the art "snobs" of the Art Establishment, the so-called experts in art, despise ArtPrize, while the "common" people love it. Do we know we are God's work of art? We have been placed throughout our cities for people to be able to see the riches of God's grace. We are God's prized art.
