One Quick Memory , 2010, 1:00
“One Quick Memory” functions like a brain synapse of subjective memory—where context and meaning are always shifting, and where dream and personal memory blur.

BetterBrotherBattle, 2010, 1:00

In this work I investigate the act of drawing and the possibilities of narrative. My process explores the use of motion and time as a means of examining our collective experience and the inherent progression of an idea as it develops. It considers the proposal that identity is a narrative that we create to help comprehend our past. Like all good stories, this requires a combination of fact and myth. In the creation of this time based work I am composing an epic biography of my relationship with my brother. Through words and images, I examine the influence of television, film, and comic book adventures on the development of my identity.

biography

video title:
Is this mine?, 2009, 1:00

Not only me, but also every body has to exist as the ‘one’
because on the earth, no one can be a copied one from the others.
However, these days, many clothings are floating on the market place as a fad and no one knows that who a person is going to buy the exactly the same one. Modern society’s people say that they are and are trying to have unique identities, yet it doesn’t work.

The Norman Conquest (USA)
biography

video title:
Mantra In A, 2010, 1:00

This video is an excerpt from a lifelong project of mine titled “Mantra In A”. The premise of the project is that I record one “A” note every day for the rest of my life, and take pictures of exit signs to correspond to each “A”. This is a 55 second excerpt of the piece where each “A” and exit sign lasts for one second. Due to the proliferation of exit signs in our daily existence and psyche, this piece relates to “memory” and “identity” through the generic framing of each exit sign, confusing the audience into thinking that they’ve seen that specific exit sign before.

this piece features these people:
Cosa Brava (Fred Frith, Zeena Parkins, Carla Kihlstedt, Matthias Bossi, The Norman Conquest), The Atomic Bomb Audition (Jason Hoopes, Alee Karim, Brian Gleeson, The Norman Conquest), Myrmyr (Marielle Jakobsons, Agnes Szelag), Jack O’ The Clock (Damon Waitkus, Emily Packard, Jordan Glenn, Kate McLoughlin, Jason Hoopes), Dimentia, Carly Hoopes, Kristine Barrett, Evan Fraser, Sammy Kruger, Mike Guarino, Ri Crawford, Eli Wise

on these instruments:
voice, wine bottle, novation synth, bass guitar, hammered dulcimer, organ, animal band toy, electric cello, electric violin, glockenspiel, berimbau, acoustic guitar, piano, ARP 2600, acoustic violin, toy piano, streetlamp buzz, flute, pump organ, toy pan flute

Robert Pearre (USA)
biography

video title:
“Number 50 (short_v)”, 2010, 1:00

Taken from artist’s statement: “The conceptual framework of my practice is not complicated. I record images that appeal to me, intellectually but more often viscerally. The images I record include interiors as well as exteriors and are almost always devoid of people. By recording certain images and arranging them in a specific way I hope to create environments – “places” – that otherwise do not exist. Sometimes a piece includes text that may offer the audience a hint at possible narratives, but not always. Although the stories which these pieces tell are powerful and clear for me, ultimately the viewer’s grasp of a fixed narrative is of much less importance to me than the environment they experience.”

Lilia Perez Romero (MX)
biography

video title:
“Pills”, 2010, 1:00

D. was named Graciela before her stage name replaced that of birth,
even within her own family, which is mine. D. is my aunt, a
controversial figure who has been mentally handicapped since long
before I met her. She’s the strange one of the family in whom it took
me until adolescence to discover the diva of the sixties Mexican
experimental cinema. I’ve been filming her ever since hoping to be
able to tell her story that is also part of my story. “Pills” is a
short video represents an exercise of memory, in it I speak about my
aunt’s memory, trapped in nostalgia of her ephemeral glorious past,
but also about my own memory of her, and of the dying medium of
non-digital photography. The two memories are interdependent, and this
one minute film is a loop that could last forever.

«Little angels», 2009, 1:00

It is early morning. In the distance you can see angels coming down a mountain slope into a misty valley. As they come closer, you realize they are children with bundles of dry branches. Apart from the optical illusion, the resemblance with angels is symbolic. The children like angels are symbols of purity and innocence, and the dry branches that at first look like the angels’ wings symbolize warmth and comfort that the children are bringing into their homes.

video title:
face book, 2010, 1:00

On the fringes of the digital city are places where your status doesn’t get updated daily, your profile usually gets determined for you by others and the only photos of you that get posted are when you go missing. In some neighbourhoods, identities get used up and memories become obsolete faster than the technologies that assume to perpetuate them. This video is for everyone who falls between the cracks of our social networking utilities.

”First in a series of ten short movies, a personal fragmented journey. A thin slice off impressions stored in human brain, transformed into video images. A mashup narrative mashup. The project is part of an ongoing investigation of memory models to form a matrix for visual patterns/moods.”

video title:
UnknownTV, 2008, 1:00

The video was made using the technique of video-collage, images and sounds were taken from horror films, recorded directly from TV. The proximity of the camera make images abstract items, revealing the points / pixels / lines of the monitor, a plot indecipherable, where the movie subtitles invade the space, such as words, letters or usualy signs… The piece looks a kind of puzzle unrecognizable.
Throughout the twentieth century television has invaded our collective
memory, assuming as part of our own identity. Over time this memory will be scattered, breaking up into small sketches, becoming a set of single images, which are grouped as in a dream / nightmare. The reflection of that memory becomes an amalgam of sounds and images presented to us with completely unknown time. The TV becomes unknown.

Alejandra Villasmil (Ecuador)
biography

video title:
Fanesca, 2010, 1:00

Identity and memory, two terms that lead us to conform as unique and authentic selfs, two terms that let us know that everything we are, is in them. Each person, keeps everything they are and what they have lived in a chest, where our inner self hides, where everything we have lived expresses and converts us in what each person is, this chest is our mind and everything that is kept in it, while remembering, it comes back to us, like when a candle is lit in the dark and every drop of wax of this burning candle, leads us to our identity, to our memories, to our memory. Identity is a fusion of elements, a combination of everything that surrounds us, what we live, what we feel and think, we are a mixture of everything, a mixture like that of the “fanesca”. Fanesca is a typical ecuatorian plate, a soup that integrates a wide variety of ingredients, which make it very thick, and gives it a unique taste; it is because of things like this, a soup that reminds us of our childhood, our life, our family memories, our culture, our daily life, and our country. We are what we are, we are beings that one day will blow away their flame, where all memories kept will extinguish and that flame that kept burning, will vanish, and with her, another being will enter the world of darkness where only their memory prevails.
