new film series about photography

Let me present to you a new film series (in German though) about photography I am producing with my partner (in life, crime and art) Sulamith Sallmann. In this series we will explore techniques and ideas about shooting and producing better photos and learn about the inner working of a female photographer… I hope you enjoy – and share if you car, spread the love.

Also the song used for the intro is my new song called “south sailing”. The (also) new clip can be seen here >>

This is an homage of some sort to one of the most important contemporary artists there is: Banksy. I appreciate his impetus and his work and since there is no way of contacting him since nobody knows who he is, this is my feedback… I don’t know how to spray things but if you know how, go ahead, there is no copy-anything on this one.

Glitch//Request – resutls

I love my glitch art community. Especially the free and open Glitch//Request on facebook. So many people share art and knowledge for the fun of it.

This is why I eagerly participate in it. Here, I wanted to show some results. The logic is simple. Go to the fb group, post an image and get glitched… Hope to collect more over time so stay tuned or contact me for your personal glitch.

“The Battle for Kobane” is a glitch art series that deals with the close relation mass media has with war. Let’s be honest: war brings us the most shocking, intense, horrifying, glorious and also beautiful images there are. You could paraphrase that war is the father (or mother) of all sujets since the earliest paintings and relief’s where about war and conflict. But that was in the old days when imagery was propaganda…

The mass-media-magnifying-glass this week focusses on Kobane. A small town in northern Syria that is only relevant to it because it is visible from a safe distance / border (with Turkey).

Hundreds of cities have been ravaged by fundamentalism in Syria and Iraq in these last months, no camera was present, newspapers & TV where slow to realize the tragedy that was going on. It was such a nice summer. But that’s how modern day mass media work. The need an iconic subject, a small world to exemplify and explain the big world to us…
