On bracketing a simulated metaverse

click for video: Quicktime / direct streaming for PC

" The voodler observes and experiments; that is, he/she ascertains factual existence according to experience; for the voodler experiencing is a grounding act which can never be substituted by a mere imagining. And this is precisely why science of maters of fact and experimental science are equivalent concepts. "

Remembering also, that the ultimate grounding act is not only experience but rather a seeing of essences, Sam Renseiw investigates a bracketed moment of simulated interior_metaverse, deployed as an East-European kiosk, looking very real, indeed. View the recorded spacial meta-introversion by clicking here or on the links above. (patafilm # 796, 03'58'', 60MB, Quicktime/mov - other versions at Bliptv)

Today's Bonus Lumiere Video features two more works with passing traffic (Lum # 288,"art & traffic" 01'00'', 12MB Quicktime/mov)

Can you say a little about what is going on in the monitor in the Lumiere please - it seems to be linked to the passing train though it is hard to see - intriguing

indeed, it is a strange scene:

two works of art, of which the monitor that is just a part of (a larger installation); this installations is behind and on both sides of the camera, and thus not seen in the lumiere.

what happens on the footage on(in) the monitor has something to do with the installation. I did not figure out what actually was going on in the monitor, as I was more concerned with getting the passing trains in the frame.

so: no linkage at all i suppose.

(did not buy the catalogue,unfortunately.will return with more info on the topic later)

Ah I thought it was maybe the train - as I was watching this I had an idea (which no doubt someone somewhere has already executed) that it would be nice to have such a scene and then have a recording from the previous day synced up. So at say 9 AM you would start the playback of the recording from the previous day as the 9 AM train comes past. If the trains were on time they would sync up throughout the day. Might be more interesting to have a road scene and then you might spot the same people going to work etc. You would need some sort of incredibly long tape though or storage system/delay. As I say someone has probably done this already? No doubt Professor Cheese would know.

This is the piece I vaguely had in mind....

"Weibel's first video installation «Audience Exhibited», created in Vienna in 1969, employed both instant playback through a closed-circuit system (with all its connotations of surveillance system) as well as delayed playback through a VTR (videotape recorder) in order to confront a gallery audience with its own image."
