Pipilotti Rist, I’m not the Girl Who Misses Much, (1986)
Video stills 5 min, 2 seccolor sound
In her early work, Rist appropriated the pop music video format, undercutting it with a feminist agenda. The video seems to be on fast forward: the imagery is jerky and blurred. While the soundtrack repeats the title again and again at a very fast and shrill pace conveying a sense of desperation. Only at the end of the 5 minute loop is the Beatles’ song, “Happiness is a warn Gun revealed as the source. This juxtaposition of the meaning of the words with a feeling of panic undermines the glamour of the standard pop video, Rist re-represents the male musicians muse in terms of insecurity, repetition and hysteria. While reframing his gaze with staccato cutting to render the female body impossible to pin down or hold still.
Light is central to the design of the Greenwich Academy Upper School, even after sunset. SOM collaborated with renowned artist James Turrell to create a luminous installation that engages form. In this sped-up impression of Turrell’s work, mullions and glass enclosures glow through programmed LED light sequences, giving the building a brilliant, sculptural presence on the campus landscape.

Turkish multimedia artist Erdal Inci experiments with cloned motion in video to create awesomely hypnotic looping videos and gifs of himself moving through public spaces, sometimes carrying lights or other objects. Depending on the exposure, Inci sometimes appears to be no more than a shadow or isn’t visible at all, making his videos even more mysterious and dreamlike.
He states: “I realized that if you clone a recorded performance contiguously it will become perpetual. So that you can see all the time phases of the same performance in a small amount of time like 1 or 2 seconds. This gives you the chance of thinking like a choreographer with a mass crew or painter who fills its frame not in forms and colour but motion. At this point I could tell I am inspired by patterns in traditional arts & crafts , dance and repetition. Motion, performance and real environments are the outlines of the work.”

As someone who makes and breaks digital artefacts and has a vested interest in the future of projection mapping, this is out of this world!! Makes me so excited to learn about projection mapping, I think there are some seriously powerful applications RE: design futures and history of place.
