carne scelta: Desda

A view of the ceiling of the little church in the fortress in Fortezza/Franzenfeste, currently one of the sites of Manifesta7.

On the last good day of the season, my kids and I took the short trip to the Fortezza/Franzenfeste site of Manifesta7.

 

Technical Note: The interior was very dark, so I used an SB-600 mounted on camera, bare bulb, pointed at the ceiling, to brighten it. While processing the RAW file, I took two different white balances for the interior and the exterior.

WINNER OF THE TRANSMEDIALE.09 AWARD

 

Jury Statement:

 

"Profound and dense, this work will be remade for transmediale after showings in 2008 in San Jose at 0l and in Italy at Manifesta7. It has been nominated for its quality of execution, density of imagination as well as conceptual and metaphorical strengths. It operates on many levels – casting light on the memory of the more than three million people who have died in wars in the Congo over the last ten years—through the use of telephony combined with computation. A rack of electromagnetic Strowger telephony switches is triggered by a computer that tracks calls from the 'Telephone Trottoire,' a 'social telephony' network designed for an international Congolese diaspora. This project builds on the Congolese practice of 'radio trottoire' – passing news and hearsay on street corners by word-of-mouth to avoid state control. Its imaginative breadth and its integration of socio-political objectives were seen by the jury as exceptional. The artists have established a substantial track record in engaging with subjects that impact us globally but are initially manifested locally, and their work is well-deserving of acknowledgement within transmediale 09."

Man With A Movie Camera: The Global Remake

Perry Bard (2008)

 

The video artist Perry Bard invites people to a collaborative web-based, database-generated montage experiment. Using Dziga Vertovs masterpiece from 1929 as direct inspiration, participants from all over the world can upload footage on the website next to the corresponding scenes from the original film. Uploaded digital media from photo cameras, video recorders and screen-grabs form part of the new interpretation. The lengths and images of submitted videos are synchronised with the original scenes through software, which then rotates the added material every day, ensuring the film may never be the same twice. Bard’s project transports Vertov’s impressions about the Soviet cities in his experimental silent film into the 21st century and becomes, in Vertov’s terms, the “decoding of life as it is.”.

This work by Beth Campbell, entitled Following Room, is exhibited at the Trento site of Manifesta7. It's a fantastic piece of trompe-l'œil. As you enter the room, you think you are seeing a the reflections of a single room in a series of mirrors - you see the rims of the "mirrors" all right. Then you start noticing that your reflections are missing. So you realize you are looking at several real-life copies of the same room, painstakingly replicated down to the littlest details.

part of the Principle Hope, by Adam Budak

Incendia le farfalle meccaniche le rose lisergiche e i nostri pochi orgasmi

ti ricordi dei combattimenti tra i cigni finti e delle sere a sbranarsi e delle sere a strafarsi

con me non devi essere niente con me non devi essere niente

Venere del mio intestino tenue quando dormo guido piano

non ti preoccupare

Venere del mio intestino tenue non riesco a digerire

con me non devi essere niente con me non devi essere niente

E stavi diventando blu anche tu, i tuoi insulti i tuoi fiori finti,

le siringhe disinfettate coi nostri occhi di criptonite

andiamo a vedere le luci della centrale elettrica

andiamo a vedere le luci della centrale a turbogas

e tornino a scoppiare a ridere le nostre madonne anoressiche

e tornino a crepare ma dal dal ridere le nostre madonne bulimiche

incendia le farfalle meccaniche le rose lisergiche e i nostri pochi orgasmi

ti ricordi dei combattimenti tra i cigni finti e delle sere a sbranarsi e delle sere a strafarsi

Addio fottiti ma aspettami

Addio fottiti ma aspettami

andiamo a vedere le luci della centrale elettrica

andiamo a vedere i colori delle ciminiere dall'alto dei nostri elicotteri immaginari

andiamo a dare fuoco ai tramonti e alle macchine parcheggiate male

ad assaltare ancora i cieli a farci sconfiggere e finire sui telegiornali

foto in bianco e nero delle nostre facce stravolte sui quotidiani locali

andiamo a vedere i cantieri delle case popolari

dai finestrini dei treni ad alta velocità

trasformiamo questa città in un'altra cazzo di città

andiamo a vedere le luci della centrale a turbogas

andiamo a vedere le luci della centrale elettrica

e tornino a scoppiare a ridere le nostre madonne bulimiche

e tornino a crepare ma dal ridere le nostre madonne anoressiche

e le fotomodelle le tue fotomodelle

le tue fottute fotomodelle
