Interview mit Eva Bischof (4youreye) und Lisa Malle (Frau Fitzke), zwei langjährigen Protagonistinnen der Wiener Visualistenszene – im Gespräch über das ehemalige internationale VJ Festival “Contact Europe”, dem jährlich von ihnen organiserten “AV Playground” und die Szene in Österreich.
Sadly, due to an unexpected inconvenience happened with our current Venue NK (See NKs official disclaimer below) we are not able to realize this month’s SCOPE Session as we had planned. We are extremely sorry for this and hope you understand our wish to keep on with the quality events and not re-organise everything in a hurry.
However, we offer you anyway an alternative for Thursday the 14th June. As many of you know, we were last week at the LPM Life Performers Meeting 2012 in Rome doing some really interesting interviews to the artists that presented their works there and will be screening them on Thursday at our previous venue, Atelier Überall.
Also, we will have Andreas karaolanis doing a small AV Performance, we have to congratulate him because he won the VJ Torna contest of this year’s LPM. Congrats!
Due to the people on the floor underneath us having techno parties and not paying rent the Hausverwaltung is posting security guards with an attack dog in our yard who will not let anyone in or out and have been instructed to call the police if they hear any sound At present they cannot differentiate between our floor and the other so concerts will be shut down during the summer months. we will do our best to rectify this situation aspa and will update you via our newsletter. For the time being we have relocated some of the concerts please check our website for location details
Yurei Ido (yurieido.com) is a performance artist and a painter. She was born in Japan and since 2003 she lives and works in Berlin. She visualises her dreams. Her body and her movement are also incorporated as a part of the embodied fiction.
The pieces of Tetsuya Hori (tetsuyahori.com) do not have a concept. that is the concept. The concept develops in the head of the listener. Hori composes not only for instruments, but for things. Each piece is different. Every time. He want to show the listener nonsense. Interesting nonsense.
Tetsuya Hori and Yurie Ido will present their video performance “dead” and explain their collaborative work.
“This project will be the master thesis for my studies at the Bauhaus University Weimar. Since I’m a synesthete myself, synesthesia is a topic that is present in my life for many years. The idea of involving this topic into my work first came to my mind about three years ago. It developed and grew over the years and finally I will have the opportunity to realise it.
Synesthesia isn’t just one weird way of seeing, hearing or smelling the world around us. Every synesthete has his very own way of experiencing a colourful or somehow exciting world. This is the point where my project focuses on. The diversity of experiencing synesthesia.
To show this diversity I want to initiate a varity of works. I want to bring together a bunch of artist (preferably non-synesthetes) with synesthetes. The output can be any kind of artwork or media installation visualising a very specific and subjective version of synesthesia. The process of working together will bring up many questions. Questions that can lead to anwsers presented to the visitors or questions raised and still left unanswered to the public.”
due to organisational reasons, the next scope session will not be on november 3rd, but the week after on november 10th.
The video work of Carrick Bell (carrickbell.com) negotiates between narrative and abstraction in depictions of human interactions with natural landscapes. He uses appropriated video to investigate nature as a site for man-on-man violence, as a site for abandonment (of self, social constraint, good taste, futures, etc) and as a site for the production of political narrative. Using scenes from everything to trashy B-movies and viral videos to Hollywood blockbusters and disaster footage, he extracts micro-narratives from existing cinematic, art historical, and pop cultural representation of the relationship between subject, landscape, and sovereign power.
Developer Sébastien Bourdeauducq (lekernel.net) will present the The Milkymist One, an open hardware product that concentrates all the processing power and the interfaces of an heavily interactive VJ setup into one small box. With a unique combination of built-in interfaces such as MIDI, DMX512, analogue video input, Ethernet, OpenSoundControl and generic digital I/O, it gives you all the tools to create truly interactive performances.
VisualBerlin (visualberlin.org) management board member Aude François and co-founder Kiritan Flux will present Berlin’s number one video-arts and VJ association VisualBerlin, how it all started in 2005 and what it has developed to today. Members and projects will be presented and people will have the chance to ask questions about the association.
This session, we’ll welcome Alejandro Corbi (49ers.es/corbi/lightceiling) who will show us his work under Arduino and Processing. He will start simple, and then more complex. After his presentation, we can get to the computers, and try, share, get started, ask questions, manipulate a bit, have a look over the functions and possibilities
Of course, Arduino and Processing users from all levels are all invited to come, and to come also with their computer and software installed, so that we can all exchange, see, even when we’re specialists of another software on another platform, or not specialists at all.
3 to 4 computers in total would allow 3 to 4 groups of 3 to 5 persons, perhaps self-organised by level or software.
The session could welcome another short talk, around 20 minutes. then, contact SCOPE or one of its members. The best way to do this is via Facebook
Scope is a meeting point for the creative and the curious, a platform for sharing and learning in an informal setting. Guest artists are invited to present a project, a concept, a process or an experience.
The presentations are short, around 40 minutes and unrestricted in form. Each session offers a variety of topics and approaches;
