1. Riff Raff Radical Marching Band


    from Elliot Hughes Added 281 0 0

    HD video with audio, 2012. This video portrait is a work in progress that upon completion will include additional interviews with band members and documentation of the band's 2012 Mardi Gras float. For the 2012 Mardi Gras, the band focused on the environmental and political issues associated with the exploration for and extraction of Coal Seam Gas. In particular, they focused on the license that Dart Energy has to explore and drill for CSG across Sydney. This work was first shown as part of the solo exhibition "Containers of a Liquid Reality," at Firstdraft Gallery, Sydney. "Containers of a Liquid Reality" documents the performance practices of participating individuals through the creation of interview-based documentaries. The work develops a dialogue about capitalist enclosure of physical space and about the way in which human bodies are treated within a capitalist system of economics. Through a discussion of their performance practices, the interviewees provide insights into the imaginative ways in which they redefine and reclaim their physicality. In addition to the video portraits, the exhibition features an architectural inversion that utilizes engineering principles first used in the creation of Gothic cathedrals. The exhibition as a whole explores the link between ideology and architecture.

        • Slow In The Head- Nikon J1 slow motion (incomplete)


          from Julian Tynan Added 829 3 2

          I borrow the new Nikon J1 for an hour with the 10mm kit lens and put it on my flycam and ran around Sydney recording people at 400 frames per second. to give you an idea, 5 seconds real time turns into over a minute once slowed. But Wait! this isn't a finished piece. the last minute of the film isn't there. Premiere Pro (CS5) wouldn't let me render out all of the film, instead it turned the tracks into a green matte and I saw no way around it, can anyone help me? I don't know what it is. Music is Erosion by Counter. check him out here: http://www.reverbnation.com/Counter1
