Can (GIF of Vine)

3 MB GIF (embedded in HTML page) that I made of a Vine posted to twitter by glasspopcorn. [removed]

Update: Decided a "shared" Vine was better than a grainy GIF for this particular subject matter.

Am working on a series of GIFs to document my projections in the recent BYOB NY show. Rafael Rozendaal's YouTube video of the event is my source of clips at this point--I really appreciate that he got some good shots of the work. Here is the first GIF. My "blue bomb" remix is in the center. Note also one of Ryder Ripps' peripatetic frames rather dramatically descending on the right to enclose another work (not sure whose). Jeremy Bailey's projection is on the left. I like how every part of this GIF is in some kind of independent motion.

jimpunk, "We Fix Antlers II" [YouTube]

the original data grinder. this work comes as close as any to rocking the standardized confines of YouTube. there is always that tension that something is breaking. the pure aesthetics of the digital accident. never trendy, always reliably pissed-off.

Night at the Ex

"Night at the Ex," video by Jacob Stein: [YouTube]

Cropped Clip [html page with embedded .5 MB Quicktime movie]

The Stein vid was posted in the comments to Nasty Nets. It's a camera following a girl in battery-operated devil horns as she walks around a fairground with Beck's "Gamma Ray" on the soundtrack. Banal, ordinary but very watchable, lots of depth and multilayered movement. In the clip I made, note all the levels of action going on simultaneously: boys running through funhouse tube, jumping, turning to the right, tube rotating, girl swiveling head, devil horns blinking, carousel lights flashing in the background, guy at back of tube who might be filming (?). De Palma-esque trigonometry on a budget.

John Pomara Video Remixed

"John Pomara RMX" [16 MB Quicktime .mov]

Artist, old friend, and unwitting collaborator John Pomara sent me a low res .mov of a video he's showing in his current solo show. The imagery relates to his current series of paintings and ink jet prints, discussed here. Like a cad (as opposed to a CAD) I did a remix of the video (mostly for length but with a few aesthetic choices, too) and added my own music. Saved it from a .mov to an .avi and back to a .mov so it's muy mushy. This is low rent industrial media art offered with no apologies. Resemblance to anything 8-Bit or Carsten Nicolai-ish is purely intentional (at least on my end).

"End Notes" (Video)

End Notes on TV

"End Notes" [18.8 MB Quicktime .mov]

The .mov file above is one version of this piece. It is a video using (i) my own music and animation and (ii) the collaborative animated GIFs I did with jimpunk in 2004 (including the opening GIF seen above in freeze frame).

I more or less composed the video for the 13 inch screen above. The music was mixed to monaural and plays on the TV speaker or through headphones. It also looks pretty good in "full screen" mode on the computer, but I was trying to work for the worst case scenario of a cheap TV that cropped a good bit of the border. The TV version is grittier and more aggressive than the .mov file.
