Jessica over at Pacific Cinematheque (great non-profit threatre here in downtown Vancouver) just let me know that on Monday October 20th (7:30pm) they will be screening some of the best work from Miranda July’s Joanie 4 Jackie Chainletter Tapes. Female filmmakers/artists were invited to submit work to July, the work was then compiled onto videotapes and mailed back out to everyone who contributed. So if you submitted something you recieved a tape of your own work along with an assortment of other artists’ work. Cool idea.
Amusing and amazingly detailed paintings by Colorado-based artist, Shawn Huckins. More images from Huckins’ “Paint Chips” series below!
Creating photographs without a subject or a camera may sound ridiculous but the resulting large-scale images by photographer Brittany Nelson speak for themselves. “Alternative Process” is the result of various experimentations with historical photographic processes like Tintype, Daguerrotype, Mordancage, and Halochrome. More images below. Also, video of Nelson talking about the chemistry processes behind her work!
Artist and experimental musician Graham Dunning’s Mechanical Techno Demonstration is exactly what it sounds like! Dunning demonstrates his incredible hand-made method for making techno music: layering locked records, analogue synths, even mechanically triggered percussion. Watch how it all comes together below!
