Richard Stallman of the Free Software Foundation visits "NOW"
2008-04-09 20:53:00
CCCB - foto by daniel.julia flickr" /> As the final event of “NOW’s April edition – “Meetings in the present continuous” – Richard Stallman, the GNU-inventor and founder of the free software foundation, shared his thoughts and beliefs at the CCCB. I really enjoyed the presentation of this godfather of free software, although it was more a religious mass rather than a lecture: Stallman talked about Free Software , Human Rights and the ideological term “piracy” (“pirates capture ships, not digital stuff”), always trying to convince the audience to switch to Linux. The exorcism-procedures included Microsoft-Bashing, Apple-Condemning and RealPlayer-Insulting.

To be an idealist in a system that threats you with lemon drops in your eyes is luxury, rather than challenge. The lemon is the ambiguity of this system that uses and exploits you. Ser idealista dentro de un sistema que te amenaza con gotas de limón en tus ojos, es un lujo más que un reto. El limón es la ambigüedad del sistema que te compra y que te exprime. In einem System, das seinen Bewohnern Zitronentropfen in die Augen flösst, ist es eher ein Luxus als eine Herausforderung Idealist zu sein. Die Zitrone steht hierbei für die Doppeldeutigkeit mit der dieses System dich benutzt und einverleibt.
The Influencers 2008: Monochrom & Alan Abel in Barcelona
2008-03-03 11:39:00
This weekend I attended the 4th edition of the “The Influencers“-Festival at the CCCB. The event describes itself as… The talkshow you won’t see on TV! The Influencers explores controversial forms of art and communication guerrilla, presenting independent projects that play with global popular culture, infiltrate the mass media, and transform fashions, consumption and technological fetishism. I was not able to see all of the lectures, but it started on Thursday with a very mediocre talk of the US-American interactive artist Brody Condon. On Saturday, Johannes Grenzfurthner of the collective monochrom from Vienna held a brilliant presentation. He described monochrom’s subversive approach of irritating the contemporary neoliberal discourse with the distribution of post-modern ideas: “context hacking” is how they call it. Then, Alan Abel , the Godfather of hoaxes, talked about his experience of the last 60 years as a prankster. With a lot of an...

VW Polo: Surfing in Maui
2008-02-21 20:07:00
For the campaign “te cambiará la vida“ (it will change your life) of Volkswagen Spain, I have animated a one-minute, motion graphics video with a colorful Hawaiian aesthetic. The project has been done in close collaboration with the nice folks at Cannonball Studio and combines several motion and compositing-techniques. These animated postcards represent the last video of a mixed-media campaign, that closely integrates TV-Ads, a website and web videos. Client: Volkswagen Spain Agency: Tribal DDB / Cannonball Studio

Call for entry: 18th International Videofestival Bochum
2008-01-09 14:36:00
A little bit support for this extraordinary video festival: Video artists and enthusiasts of video art! Prepare yourself for the annual “International Video Festival Bochum”, which is turning 18 this year! From the 29th to the 31st of May 2008, the festival will be THE event of the year in terms of “international video art”, which will take place in the time-honoured halls of the “Musisches Zentrum” (the centre of fine arts at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum). Giving the medium of video its own platform eighteen years ago really turned out to be a good idea. The Video Festival has artists from all over the world, and their joy of innovation in making diverse videos becomes apparent to everyone who attends. Again, one main focus at the festival will be the VJ art. Of course most people only know the VJ as the guy who usually assists the music DJ at the club, but the Video Festival in Bochum brings these VJ artists to centre...

I am very proud to announce that my video 60” with costa rican choreographer Sandra Trejos is part of an exhibition at the Museo de Arte y Diseño Contemporáneo de Costa Rica. It is presented as a monochannel videoinstallation at this year’s Iberoamerican Bienal of Videocreation and Digital Art. Unfortunately and due to bureaucratic reasons, only Sandra appears in the credits.

cctv: what are you looking at? [1]
2007-11-22 15:46:00
Closed circuit television (cctv) can be considered as the symbolic incarnation of surveillance and control of habits in public spaces. Since the whole topic concerns me a lot, I was delighted to find a copyleft-picture of a banksy-stencil on flickr. And – within one afternoon – I brought this great conceptual idea to motion. The underlying sound collage is based on samples by suonho and the whole clip is licensed under the creative commons license.
