This short film (3 mins) explores Berkeley's notion of the divide between mind and thing; that a re-cycling bag and a particular colour, in my example, are no more than ideas of the active mind. The film-poem also introduces other layers and questions, which the viewer might wish to consider ...+ More details
Meet D.O.R.T.H.E. She is currently 15”, pretty pale but an incredibly warm and caring max/msp patch, that creates music from your thoughts in the form of written words and sentences. She is amazingly well connected speaking several languages with which she controls a number of mechanical machines build almost entirely out of scrap electronics. She sometimes get surprised how much really well-functioning stuff gets thrown out every day, from several reasons - one being “the new model arrived”. One visit to the junkyard provided her with roughly $300 worth of DC and stepper-engines, plus additional heaps of little useful things. D.O.R.T.H.E. reuses words. She analyzes them, and use them for music creation because she believes that words, sentences and phonetics have many resemblances to music. Both one to one mappings like number of letters in a word translated to a pitch in music, but also emotional states like joy, distress, happiness, discomfort and fear. D.O.R.T.H.E. is about re-cycling. Re-cycle words - turn them into music. Re-cycle electronics and turn them into instruments. by lasse munk and søren andreasen+ More details

.......might just be your treasure. There's a new challenge for outdoors enthusiasts making the rounds on Youtube at the moment; Making use of discarded man-made items found in the wilderness, My video is a reply to Waldhandwerk's contribution to the ongoing contest at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wjxo2CD8mw This is my outdoors kitchen in the local woods. The pots and frying pans I have hanging up on the tree are left overs from an anti-roads protest camp in the area and what other campers left behind over the years. I found the garden chair discarded in a nearby field. The bottle crate, also found in the woods, serves me as table for cutting up vegetables. The BBQ dish was left behind by campers as well. Helps to keep the fire off the ground. My kindling stays dry under the fly-sheet from a derelict tent left behind in the woods a few years ago. Even the bow-saw was found, but I have to change the blade from time to time. Indeed, someone else's trash has become my treasure.+ More details
