FocusPocus-videoparadox goes Cuba

Our installation is selected in the 4th International Festival of Video Art, Camagüey 2011, Cuba.

It seems to have an effect in many cultures. Maybe because (whilst doing it) I ended up dealing with the general questions of humanity that are common to us all, regarldess of culture and political country.

That who seeks, shall find…

Mess Of a Life..

FocusPocus-videoparadox in Moscow Museum of Modern Art.

I’m happy to announce that our installation “FocusPocus-videoparadox” has been selected for “Now&After” Video Art Festival, that will occur from the 13th of July to the 4th of September
in Moscow Museum of Modern Art.

So if you are at the neighborhood, check it out!

The results of the competition will be announced in late August.

And now a painting from the installation, for your pleasure 😉

Seek, and thou shall find,,,,

It’s the part of our installation, that revolves around the subjects of self-accusation, and some dynamics of social pressure.

Seek, and thou shall find...

Clicking the image brings a bit larger view of the piece.

Doing this, I ended up thinking about stereotypes, responsibility and social pressure, but it has elements and room for interpretation.
It took some 10 intense painting sessions to get it where it is.

It’s available in (insanely high resolution) physical format as well.

If you like it, feel free to share the link etc. I like to hear what people think, feel & see in this stuff.

I have projects where I’m using this piece, so stay tuned!


Digital Art painted with an iPhone

This was my first painting I did using a nice little app, iDoodle Lite. I spent a good couple of hours in to it.

Back then (spring 2010), there was an option to send it to Idoodles online Gallery, witch I did.

I named it “The Portable Knot”.

What do you see in it?

The developer of the app contacted me via email, and asked “how did you achieve that effect?”.

I explained my traditional technique;

-From dark to light, loose to tight, some elbow grease and intuition… That’s about it!

He also gave me the full version of the app. Thanks!

I made a new pic with it. I’ll upload the pic, and a video of the creative process later.

Just like openCanvas on PC,  iDoodle saves a “stroke-by-stroke animation” how the image was born.

Very cool. A fantastic way to document the creative process!

If you like it, please share & tweet etc!


Theme changed, Exhibition in Berlin.

I got bored of the old look. Welcome misty, underground look!

You are welcome to see “FocusPocus-videoparadox” (and me)  in Berlin, Germany at  EMERGEANDSEE 2011 Media Art Festival (June 3rd – June the 5th).

 

This Painting revolves around understanding false authorities, and the institution of accusations.
