*** ATTENTION: NO science here to be found! (or: not directly science) ***

…just some of the videos I like(d) (in 2006-2010) — a re-actived tab…out of nostalgic reasons…

James Turell and the Wolfsburg Project. Would really like to walk through this space…and to perceive the surrounding – the “liberation of the light from it’s carrier”…

******************************************************************************

“…is realized through applying an ultra-thin sheet of chromium oxide onto the surface of fabrics and storing information through a magnetic modulation. Stories and poems in audio are stored on the surface of these coded fabrics. A reading head, which consists of an electromagnetic sensible coil, reads the magnetic fluctuation in the chromium oxide. It then is transformed into an acoustic media. “

********************************************************************************

“…his idea was to “Use cosmic rays to make music”. […] Cosmic rays are particles – mainly protons. They originate from a variety of sources and travel across the universe at close to the speed of light. Low energy particles are usually emitted from stars such as our Sun, such as during solar flares. Higher energy particles originate from supernova – the spectacular final explosion of large dying stars. Ultra high energy particles also hit the earth, they are believed to be coming from galaxies with super massive black holes in the center.”

********************************************************************************

Loved and enjoyed ZIZEK here speaking about the nothing, the cosmic catastrophe and love being evil (in the end, in the formal sense):

********************************************************************************

Guess…many have already felt this way: Bill Viola and The Silent Mountain.

********************************************************************************

(…liked the silence): NASA Methane Engine Test Fire

********************************************************************************

Love their work: Daito Manabe and Motoi Ishibashi

and another one e.g.

********************************************************************************

An atlas of loneliness: “Conductor” by Alexander Chen.
Conductor turns the New York subway system into an interactive string instrument. Using the MTA’s actual subway schedule, the piece begins in realtime by spawning trains which departed in the last minute, then continues accelerating through a 24 hour loop.

******************************************************************************

Kissing and sound…

**************************************************************************************

Anis Mojgani and Shake The Dust

*****************************************************************************

Didier Fontane and Strict Eternum. Liked all of it: the style, colours, dialogs (“important”) – the story/plot! All good. Eight minutes long.

*****************************************************************************

The Day of the Subgenius. Chris Hopewell (2001).

********************************************************************************

So: How to dance to dubstep!?

**************************************************************************

**************************************************************************

National Geographic: 7 Billion.

**************************************************************************

Heidegger The Law Of Identity (1/4) – English subs

**************************************************************************

The strange new world of Nanoscience, narrated by Stephen Fry
Nano-nano: liked “inside it’s more empty than space” (?)…and recommend the part from 12:08 onwards – with the most detailed view of matter ever made (internal structure of a single molecule) and ESPECIALLY the minute or two of Mr. Welland (min. 15) speaking about the future way of “communication” (“…we would be infinitely connected with each other” – mmmh sounds good to me..)

*****************************************************************************

Nature by Numbers
“In Nature by Numbers, a short movie by Cristobal Vila, inspired by, well, numbers and nature, Vila animates the natural existence of Fibonacci sequences, the golden ratio, and Delaunay triangulation. Watch it. Even if you don’t know what those three things are, the video will rock your socks off.”

**************************************************************************

As I worked as an intern for BMW six months long (and liked the company) and as I found this way of advertising relatively innovative – here BMW Flash Projection:

**************************************************************************

Actually, don’t know how it would be if this man beneath here “tried” the BMW ad…?
3rd Eye: Artist Gets Camera Implanted in Head
“A New York University arts professor might not have eyes on the back of his head, but he’s coming pretty close. Wafaa Bilal had a small digital camera implanted in the back of his head, all in the name of art.”

**************************************************************************

…also nice: Sean Montgomery’s Brain-Hat and Heart-Shirt

**************************************************************************

Jem melts rock using sunshine (liked his joy of discovery/seeing something new – reminded me a bit of myself, which was and is probably one of the reasons, why I liked and posted it)

**************************************************************************

Wii Spray (Graffart)

**************************************************************************

Simulation of selforganizing neural network using axonal growth rules
(this is nothing really “superspecial” – but liked it somehow too)

**************************************************************************

Bit unusual…the Saudi Sandals:

**************************************************************************

Lego. Black Ops (jajaja – “lego once and now…”)

**************************************************************************

Like Wong Kar Wai (…though in collaboration with Philips here…) and There’s Only One Sun. Capturing virtuosically attention straight from the beginning (like the first 1-2 minutes):

*******************************************************************************

Krzysztof Kieslowski vs. Skalpel: Tramwaj So Far

********************************************************************************

EVERYONE FOREVER NOW is an episodic motion-based media project. It is an examination of the collective wisdom and expression of human actions.

*******************************************************************

THE DEATH OF WILLIAM BURROUGHS by Antonello Faretta

********************************************************************

Rome Police Hold Anniversary – 1953

*****************************************************************************

Like Andrej Tarkovsky. And what he’s saying and doing and what and how he’s putting things into film and into a narrative context.

******************************************************************************

Thomas Bernhard. Funny…(and an intimate insight in his thinking and way of working…; in German)

*****************************************************************************

This one MUST be watched completely and “when in no (greater..) hurry”:
The Powers Of Ten was directed by Ray and CharlesEames in 1968 (re-released in 1977). There is a similar, new video called The Known Universe, but I prefer this version here (also due to the music…; 10 minutes):

**************************************************************************

*******************************************************************************

The Fun Theory. “We believe that the easiest way to change people’s behaviour for the better is by making it fun to do. We call it The fun theory.” http://www.thefuntheory.com

*******************************************************************************

…liked this guy here too

***************************************************************************

YEAH! We are all light Gods! …or at least possible LIGHT DJs:

******************************************************************************

…hm! “Will become (more or less) reality one day…“:

*************************************************************************

…like Béla Tarr’s Werckmeister Harmonies too very much (10 minutes; starts at 1:07)

*************************************************************************

…wonderful too – Woody Allen’s Play It Again, Sam

*************************************************************************

One Day No Religion Campaign. 20 February 2011.

******************************************************************************

…so we have to keep an eye on the developments…and practice our “attention focussing abilities”…by watching for example: Whudunnit?

******************************************************************************

David Sprigg

******************************************************************************

World Skin. International film festival Rotterdam (V2). January 2010.
“The war images are a collage of photographs and sequences from news reports
from different zones and theatres of war; they show a world filled with mute violence.
By operating photo cameras that are suspended from the ceiling, visitors may take pictures of the war scenes and experience how the camera becomes a ‘weapon’ that enables them to wipe out the projected images. The outline of the images that are taken out is left as a silhouette in the projection, which becomes increasingly empty as the visitors take more pictures and permanently change the landscape of war.”

************************************************************************

…don’t know what to say to this one here…no comment?

************************************************************************

Hi by Multitouch Barcelona

Impressive Vogelkop Bowerbird…investing quite a time…and effort…for…

**********************************************************************************

…and something completely different yet refreshing:

************************************************************************************

Delicious, time and again:

*************************************************************************************

Amo a Alejandro Jodorowsky también!

**************************************************************************************

Entertaining: “Neuroscientist and best-selling author David Eagleman introduces the concept of Possibilianism, a new philosophy that simultaneously embraces a scientific toolbox while exploring new, unconsidered uncertainties about the world around us.”

**************************************************************************

?…somos dos o tres?

**************************************************************************************

*********************************************************************************

nice too:

*********************************************************************************

great!

*********************************************************************************

Nice production – God Is In The Neurons. Liked listening and watching to this summary, so to say:
