“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:

blessed be the codec…

… and its misbehaviour. As a glitch / media artist I found contemporary video codecs to be a bliss and an endless reservoir for finding interesting / beautiful things, to me at least.

“12-065 (her_face_010)”, glitch 3rd°, 1200x900px, 2015

This anonymous cam girl has had a glitch peeling of the classical kind, with the initial (B) frame missing as a reference. So it (the background and non moving things in the picture) are filled with neutral grey whilst only the moving parts are visible. I always loved that effect.

12-065 (her_face_010)” is part of the glitch porn art series “Her_Face”. Read more about this series here >>

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.

Finalizing DOGS – Roxy (DOGS IX)

The Series DOGS is nearing it’s end. I originally intended to produce between 9 and 12 of these film so in uploading part IX of the series I kinda minimally realized my plan. Still want to close the series with the three remaining films but this seems to be a major chunk of it. Don’t miss the series a a whole, as it was intended to be seen here >>

“Roxy (DOGS IX) is based on a performance by Roxy Raye. The soundtrack was contributed by MK_ultra and can be found on the album “mono étude en dix parties”. It is the ninth film of a series specially dealing in relational miscommunication called DOGS.

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.

Ferguson at war (at least with the media)

Seeing the situation in Ferguson from a safe distance, it looks like a war. But that is what our (German) media is transporting. Rage, anger, hate, violence, black people. The connection is all so simple. Of course This time the message is: “…right now coloured people are justified (in a sense) in being angry and violent.” But the underlying message remains: “…coloured people are being angry and violent.” Then again mass media has never been so good in identifying subtle differences or the complexity of the real world. It is a unifying medium….

glitching Roxy Raye – cubist pointillistic art porn

There are a lot of (semi-) professional porn actresses that stretch the limit of what can be done physically. Amazing Ty comes to mind, Dirty Garden Girl and Hot Kinky Jo as well as Belladonna & Audrey Hollander, furthermore Sheila Stretch and Taylor Rain… One of the most extreme case of body modification certainly is Roxy Raye. I believe she started out with 3 to 4 (now famous) clips she did on the floor of her kitchen…
dealing in pornography art it was a question of time I had to deal with her. As I still try to be SFW in my porn art (because it is not the obvious sexual aspect that interests me but the sexual meta layer) this is quiet a shy version of her. But it is a 2nd° glitch. Just cropped and sharpened, curves adjusted.

“roxy (her_face_008)”, glitch 2nd°, 800x1034x, 2014

Still I feel the need to add this: I do not judge neither the producers nor the consumers of this kind or any other kind of pornography. This is not my point. I am interested in how pornography in combination with digital media change our perspective on our body, mind and soul. The depiction of the human body is always a clear indicator on how we view our world (to my mind at least). “roxy” is part of the glitch porn art series “Her_Face”. Read more about this series here >>
