The Center for Digital Art (CDA) will present an exhibition and talk by contemporary digital artist Matthew Ostrowski, who will highlight his current work to “re-process” and “re-synthesize” Hollywood films using unique computer algorithms.
In these videos, Ostrowski appropriates scenes from Hollywood films and uses computers to distort their narratives to create what he calls “a new order of visual and sonic information.”
On 29 January 2014, auction house Vincent Wapler is to host, at Drouot, its first sale dedicated exclusively to video art.
The auction house hopes to further explore this medium, and to highlight its importance by offering a session dedicated to 16mm and 35mm films, VHS, DVDs and Internet streams created by contemporary artists.
“Filmmakers should stop putting everything on social networks. We see too often full versions of arthouse films on networks dedicated to video while other solutions are more rewarding for the author, for example video on demand.”—
AVIFF - Cannes Art Film Festival Director, Christian Pouligo, discusses video art with us.
