Contemporary art - Mark Lewis - Invention at the Louvre

Contemporary art - Mark Lewis - Invention at the Louvre | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

From his earliest work in the 1990s, the art of Mark Lewis seems to have traveled backwards through the history of images. Painting, photography, and cinema engage in silent conversation in his films.

By referring to the Lumière brothers, the Canadian artist places optical exploration at the heart of the artistic experience. A new temporal space is created, where the paths of the eye and memory, the blended times of moving images, and the internal durations of perception all intersect.

Holy Field Holy War by Lech Kowalski | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Small farmers around the world are under stress. Their struggle is far from the scrutiny of cameras and the media. In Poland, where more than sixty percent of the total area is taken up by farming, new forces are competing for the land. What is happening in Poland is a warning to take to heart.

Adam Magyar | Mesmerizing Super Slow-Motion Footage of People Waiting for the Subway

Adam Magyar | Mesmerizing Super Slow-Motion Footage of People Waiting for the Subway | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Slow motion video is often mesmerizing, whether it shows creamer being poured ever so luxuriously into coffee, or a dog shaking off water. But the super slow motion series Stainless by photographer Adam Magyar put all of those to shame.

For this series, which is actually a video version of a stills series of his by the same name, Magyar boarded the subway and rode it into Grand Central station in New York, the Alexanderplatz station in Berlin, and the Shinjuku station in Tokyo with a slow motion camera in tow.

ECAL Library's insight:

Le photographe Adam Magyar a utilisé une caméra haute vitesse pour filmer depuis l’intérieur d’une rame de métro les gens sur le quai alors que le train arrive à la station Shinjuku de Tokyo. En repassant les images à une vitesse normale, on a une impression de super ralenti, comme si le temps s’était arrêté. Si vous souhaitez comprendre comment il fait exactement au point de vue technique, les explications sont sur cette page :

Los Angeles : Agnès Varda in Californialand

Los Angeles : Agnès Varda in Californialand | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

The years Agnès Varda spent in Los Angeles saw the development of her free-spirited and protean oeuvre. Mainly known as a filmmaker (Cleo From 5 to 7, Vagabond), Varda’s husband was the Jacques Demy, known for combining forms in musical comedies like The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, and Varda does the same in her own work.

Her photographs are currently on display at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The exhibition includes the storyboards for her film Lions Love (1970), about a ménage à trois who witnesses the assassination of Robert Kennedy and other tragedies from their bed, through a television set which becomes a key character in the film.

Florian Luthi "Icicle ou Didascalies Impromptues"

Florian Luthi "Icicle ou Didascalies Impromptues" | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Ce travail présente deux personnages sonores, resplendissants de pâleur sur leur linceul. Ils sont habités par un langage qui les visite momentanément et qui voyage de l'un à l'autre sans vraiment leur appartenir. Tour à tour, ils racontent de manière saugrenue des réminiscences prophétiques à travers une temporalité littéralement éclatée. Le film est entremêlé de scènes plus contemplatives, révélant de nouvelles divinités, qui seraient nées d'après les restes de notre civilisation au sein d'une ère «post-apocalyptique».

Florian Lüthi graduated in 2012 from the ECAL (Bachelor in Visual Communication, Photography).

Nanook of the North: A Story Of Life and Love In the Actual Arctic (1922)

Nanook of the North: A Story Of Life and Love In the Actual Arctic (1922) | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

It’s really difficult to categorize Robert J. Flaherty’s 1922 masterpiece Nanook of the North: A Story of Love and Life in the Actual Arctic (now more commonly known as Nanook of the North). It is routinely named and considered to be the first feature-length documentary, and genre of filmmaking which did not actually exist in 1922. It is just as often decried for being staged, the exact opposite of what we currently mean by “documentary film.” The truth about that particular aspect of Nanook of the North lies somewhere between those two poles. What is certain is that it’s powerful, moving, and definitely unique among all other movies made in 1922.
