Jim Wilson | God’s Chorus of Crickets | crickets audio recording slowed way down

Tom Waits (on Jim Wilson): “Wilson, he’s always playing with time. I heard a recording recently of crickets slowed way down. It sounds like a choir, it sounds like angel music. Something sparkling, celestial with full harmony and bass parts – you wouldn’t believe it. It’s like a sweeping chorus of heaven, and it’s just slowed down, they didn’t manipulate the tape at all. So I think when Wilson slows people down, it gives you a chance to watch them moving through space. And there’s something to be said for slowing down the world.”

Borrowing journalistic postures they smash formats with humour or with poetry. Playing with oxymoron and manipulating images, they bend and move points of view reclaiming their subjectivity … What are the strategies of these contemporary artists who in gathering up information melt and remap the world? source : http://www.orevo.com/2011/10/05/vimeo-html5-test/

. The Arctic Light by : TSO Photography

Theo Jansen : Dutch artist and kinetic sculptor. He builds large works which resemble skeletons of animals that are able to walk using the wind on the beaches of the Netherlands. His animated works are a fusion of art andengineering; in a car company television commercial Jansen says: “The walls between art and engineering exist only in our minds.” He strives at equipping his creations with their own intelligence to manage avoiding obstacles, by changing their course when one is detected, such as the sea itself.

“Daniel”- D. Johnston tribute

Artiste : Antoine Fraval
Soundrack : Daniel johnston – the story of an artist
Studio courtesy : pamelamoulton.com
Production : www.espritvoyageur.net

Based on the song from “The Story of An Artist” from Daniel Johnston, Antoine Fraval, a French performer and myself decided to mix, in a very simple way,  the prolific world of this iconoclast artist with his peers, and make his words resonate with the fragility and poetry that he inspired us. Body and paper translate literally, or not, in French, certains of his assumptions with a sense of humor. Notice the presence in the background of Serge Gainsbourg, and of course the allusion to Bob Dylan’s first musical video that revolutionized at the time the music industry.A minimal choreography, and the poetry of Master Johnston, through the work of Antoine and his interdisciplinary approach of Art.

Pamela Moulton – The History’s Seamstress

CoircusPamelaEV-21

Pamela Moulton is one of the artistic fairies that can transform anything they touch into a beautiful piece of Art. When you look at her work, it seems natural, evident, so simply put together with time and patience that it immediately becomes a part of you, a piece of your mental imagery.

Her magical eye allows her to see what has become transparent to us as she is gifted with the ability to transform materials that became oblivious to us into pieces of Art, giving  them a second birth.

The result are often spectacular composition of sculptures, paintings or installations that travels around the world, spreading her message across continents.

She directed a show for the International Portland Circus school in May 2014 and choreographed dancers, musicians and costumes in several performances that attracted hundreds of visitors. I took some pictures of her creations and if you scroll down you will can also enjoy a small movie of one of her exhibition in France.

Pamela is an extremely talented sculptor, painter, and poet, see for yourself  : www.pamelamoulton.com

“Artistime.fr”- Living Tableaux

Facadepontlevoy

March 2013 : Projection of 3 films on the facade of the Abbey of Pontlevoy during the international Theatre Festival.

 ”The Artistime exhibition provides a means to travel in time and space, mentally and philosophically.” Nils Aziosmanoff – Director of the Cube, Interactive Digital exhibition space, Paris.

Artisitime is an Art exhibition revolving around the notion of time,  a collection of 100 films, lasting from 3 minutes to sometimes several hours, an invitation to reflect on the forever changing aspect of our environment and lives. Contrary to ordinary programming the films do not provide a storyline,  the viewer is entranced by nature’s simple rhythm in time, an acquiescence to a peaceful place.

Through Guided imagery and accompanied by ambient sounds of nature, original musical compositions, or pure silence, spectators are enticed to dream and reflect on their own thoughts. The complete films, an expression of dynamic art, are an invitation to relax, to reflect, and discover contemporary living tableaux.

Projecting images improves the aesthetic environment, encourages time travel, reduces anxiety levels and…entertains. Considered as “windows of tranquility”, a respite from today’s stressful society and much more, since the content and scope is vast and versatile. The projected images can shape and inspire very diverses environments ie; provide large scale works of Art, build or forge an identity and occupy a myriad of spaces, private or public; ie: Galeries, Cultural Centers, Hospitals, Airports, Stages, Restaurants, Offices, Homes…. Dreamscenes can also contribute to the healing process; ie: hospitals, doctor’s offices, laboratories, as they create an environment conducive to relaxation and provides a positive distraction and a perspective on the world.

The complete movies are original works of Art produced in limited series. IMG_0574 IMG_05843

“The interaction between Images and sounds is one of the fascinating experience of this exhibition. An artistic important dimension. We were astounded to see the impact of the films on the visitors of the museum over time. People would come back several times, bring their families, and would stand sometimes more than 10 minutes in front of a sunrise, or one of Alban’s trasnformed dreamscene. “ Jean Paul Caley – Curator of the Museum of Vendome, France.
