      • Palm video installation project (excerpt)


        from Michael Rush / Added

        116 Plays / / 0 Comments

        A collaborative project between Hong Kong based artists Michael Rush, Polina Shubkina, and Yael Bronner-Rubin, Palm is a three channel video and sound installation that immerses the viewer in a multi-sensual experience reminiscent of the transcendental meditative dance of the tribal shaman. Contemporary society in developed countries focuses on technological progress and frequently underrates the meaning of the spiritual experience, relating it to the wild, dated and uncivilized. Palm explores this particular side of the “wild” by merging various dance gestures from Europe, North America, Middle East and East Asia into a hypnotic and tempting digital ritual. The actions of the interpretive dance are mirrored over and over, generating a variety of hallucinogenic shapes. The figure remains a mystery with only its fingers visible; holding many possibilities as to its identity or simultaneous identities, and questioning the understanding and meaning of spirituality in the digital age.

              Duration 32:00 In Ouette Karen Bernard using a laptop and projector, different spaces evoking the imagined and real experiences are created. With video footage of floor tiles, patterned fabrics and human silhouettes, Bernard creates a heightened film noir that is quickly fractured by the non-performative technical tasks of manipulating the laptop and projector. Ouette is loosely based on the François Ozon movie Swimming Pool. Bernard’s character parallels the film’s protagonist, an elderly English novelist who becomes involved in a dangerous sexual fantasy that is part her fiction and part her desire. Creation and Performance : Karen Bernard Music : This Not A Love Story, Nouvelle Vague and excerpted sources: Deep Purple, Sarah Vaughn and sound track from the movie, Swimming Pool The development of Ouette) is made possible in part through the support of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, Bogliasco Foundation Fellowship, Liguria Study Center for the Arts and Humanities, Bogliasco Foundation,The Field, Earthdance, Wassard Elea, the Howard Gilman Foundation’s White Oak Residency.and the Experimental Television Center LTD.

                      You would think I am happy about the water temperatures in Maine being a few degrees warmer than usual. When swimming or filming, sure. If you don't like the weather, just wait a minute and it will change. Climate change Maine style? I've noticed tons more jellies - a type I've not ever seen in Maine, and a type of red algae seaweed has been washing up on the beaches. This projection bombing is just a few moments of rising waves and underwater fantasies of growing my own gills so I can simply stay beneath the waves. Not exactly the perfect solution for everyone to the climate change problem. If only the solution were so simple.
