I was quite happy to find a video piece by Cinthia Marcelle at the EXPO 1: New York exhibition.

One JCB machine goes through the form of an infinite symbol transporting dirt from one side to the other and then repeats the movement from that side back to the other, like a kind of enlarged sand filled hour glass that never stops rotating.

Emerging Artist

May 12th, 2013

One module at the EXPO 1: New York exhibition was called ProBio. Josh Kline curated this module which explores the theme of “dark optimism” within the context of the human body and technology. One of the artworks was a video by DIS called “Emerging Artist”. 3 pregnant women caressed each others bellies while a narrative voice talked about the fact that the world is waiting for the next artist to be born. I’m a big fan of DIS.

Here’s a very short clip. I hope they publish it soon online.

“The Column” is a video installation by Adrian Paci. A raw block of marble was shipped from China to Paris and during the trip it was transformed into a classical column by Chinese sculptors.

Above the Sun

February 17th, 2011

Above the Sun” is a very nice film project by Coudal Partners.

After the great Chicago Blizzard of 2011, hundreds of thousands of pounds of snow were removed from the city’s downtown streets. Loaded by bulldozers and heavy trucks, much of it was piled in the empty lot between our studio and the railroad tracks.

In a collaborative effort between Coudal Partners and The Explorers of the New World Society, an expedition was immediately formed. A bold assault was launched aiming to have our team be the first men to summit this peak. Known for their dexterity and grit, Dawson and Matt were selected for the dangerous undertaking. This is their story.

The Wilhelm Scream

February 2nd, 2011

Here’s another track from James Blake his upcomming album: The Wilhelm Scream. It’s been a while since I’ve seen such a hyped album, but it’s probably worth it.
Here’s the video for his other track: Limit To Your Love.

Limit To Your Love

I’m not going to tell you much about this music video “Limit To Your Love” by James Blake. It’s a cover version of a Feist song and the video was directed by Martin de Thurah. And if you’ve heard about James Blake, you’ll know.

Story to Be Told

September 21st, 2010

This is the new music video for “Story to Be Told” by M.I.A. Just like her previous video XXXO, it’s again an internet style inspired one (just like the cover art and her website). This time it’s not that glossy but more like real amateur style mixed with CAPTCHA’s. She even bought an URL for it:
The track itself isn’t that great though.


August 12th, 2010

What’s up with the music videos today? The internet amateur style finally made it into a music video, thanks to Hype Williams & M.I.A. The video for XXXO is just pure bliss! It’s the music video of the year, hands down.
There’s just one bitter taste about it. I can’t watch the official video in Germany, M.I.A. even uses the official YouTube video on her homepage. Is 2010 still the year where licenses are local but music is global?

Ratatat – Drugs

Do you know stock imagery and stock footage? Yes? Then you might recognize some faces in the music video for Drugs by Ratatat. Carl Burgess searched the Getty Images archives and turned the footage into this amazing video. You’ll smile watching this one!
