“Tempus Fugit” I-III – new xerography

Since very early on I love xerographies. The grain produced by a FAX or copy machine is just beautiful, sensual to me. Besides evoking a certain Lo-fi punk aesthetic, it still is a tool fitting our age of uninhibited reproduction and copying. What is serial, what a series, what unique, what a multiple, these questions arise instantly when dealing with FAX or copy art.

The following series called “Tempus Fugit” (actually a triptych) deals with issues of time through the evocation of past, present and future. But what are these categories, what do they mean to us limited beings, do they even exist beyond our imagination? I have no answer to that.

“black float” by K|X – new music video clip

A retro-punk-glitch-art music video clip by Killisch and rankX

black float

black float” is a collaboration, a back and forth between Berlin artists Klaus Killisch and Enkidu rankX.
Starting with a guitar track provided by Killisch, rankX built a beat around it, resampled and restructured it. Then this same process began anew. Killisch would play additional guitar on the track, X would resample and rearrange. Finally with the finished track in mind, K provided a painting / collage that in turn was the aesthetical basis for the video-clip. As opposed to the music, the visual art remained separate, more to be seen as both sides of a mirror.
The city of London was chose for a very particular reason, since K. K. as well as r.X draw a great deal of inspiration from pop music, more precisely the era of classic rock-pop-blues-funk-soul-electronic-avant-garde. So to honour this vibrant city and all the creative greatness it bestowed upon us, here is:

some of my Berlin photography on Instagram

Hey there. I wanted to share with you some of the results from my roaming through Berlin. My photography is mostly focused on and around public transport (have an obsession for it, don’t know why). All pictures here where taken with a shitty smart phone, as part of the concept 😉 Also, I locate my pictures not very precisely, only by the nearest public transport access point. So don’t go looking in that particular street for this particular motive since it might be 100m+ away.

discovering 4chan – at last (a net artists paradise)

You gonna laugh so hard at me but I just recently discovered 4chan. And it is a paradise for a net artists like me… So I went ahead and did this as a declaration of love to the hyper post-privacy dungeon that is 4chan. I think I am going to spend more time there, since Horus (i.e. the 12 year old mostly white and wealthy male tyrant) lives there and it is he who rules the world (according to some whose name where erased form the public board but not the meme bank).

“3x4chan – Horus pit 001” glicth 4th°, 2014

Living near Prenzlauer Berg here in Berlin – the chique part of that town – I can assure you it is true. Horus is rising and it is not a good thing, to my mind at least. But who cares, as long as he can be trapped so easily… He is after all just a child – a very powerful one though.

Classification of glitch (art) by Enkidu rankX

degree of glitch diagram

degree of glitch diagram

Proposal for a terminology; Classification of glitch (art):

  • 1st° (degree): found glitch, no derivation, no editing
  • 2nd°: found glitch, adapted, slightly edited or changed
  • 3rd°: induced glitch, no derivation, no editing
  • 4th°: induced glitch, adapted, heavily edited or changed
  • [5th° (maybe over the top): 4th grade re-glitched]

No value ore purity is associated to these degrees. No one is better than the other!

Enkidu sez… pop art is a zombie

As Andy Warhol, the theoretician of pop art put it: “I just do art because I’m ugly and there’s nothing else for me to do.” I this tradition and also with a very structuralist attitude towards a New Aesthetics DaDa I proclaim:

So: time to get filthy rich whilst doing nothing or the next best thing; enjoying ourselves…
