Sir David Attenborough making nature documentary for Oculus Rift
Conquest of the Skies will be the first major wildlife production made for the device.
(Bill Domonkos, 2014) Adapted from vintage comics and the poetry of Maxwell Bodenheim.
Tucked away in a nondescript strip mall on a back street in Santa Monica, there is an office space that quietly houses an internet service provider to Iraq and other Middle Eastern countries. Pass through the unmarked front doors and you’ll find yourself first in an innocuous waiting room, and next in a darkened chamber reminiscent of a scene out of “2001: A Space Odyssey.” There’s a conference table surrounded by springy swivel chairs, and beyond that, a huge bank of work stations and large video monitors. The monitors track the state of the company’s wireless and satellite networks and also show what the weather is like in regions where the company does business. Welcome to TigrisNet…
Another memorable Satellite Space event was a night of video art screenings cleverly titled “AME/ALE/PLE/PME,” after the scientific abbreviations identifying the multiple eyes of insects (i.e. AME = anterior median, ALE = anterior lateral, etc.). Video works by six artists were screened on several monitors simultaneously, conjuring something of a bug-eyed viewing effect, even as other monitors in the space were tuned to international news channels. This embedded, multi-channel viewing experience beautifully showed off some of the more formal work by Jon Rafman, Oliver Laric and Lindsay Lawson.
Video art explores freedomA group of 24 international artists express their thoughts and ideas on freedom at “Utopian Days,” a video art festival at the Totla Museum of Contemporary Art in Pyeongchang-dong, Seoul.
Curated by Haily Grenet, Martin Schulze and Yang Jeong-sun, video art displays explore the subject of freedom in various ways, starting from a footage of an artist dancing in front of a blank billboard (Filippo Minelli’s “You might call it a crisis but i’s silence to me”) to another artist burning his clothes until he gets naked (He Yunchang’s “Nirvana Flesh”).
Grenet said they picked the theme “freedom” because it is not something definitive, but a food for thought. “We don’t provide answer, but seek and research about freedom,” the French curator said.
