[Nettime-nl] This week: Video Vortex Workspace: Dominik Bartkowski

Video Vortex Workspace: Dominik Bartkowski

During Video Vortex the Netherlands Media Art Institute reveals a new identity as an experimental place presenting projects which demand public participation, or: do it yourself, with others! In addition to showing installations that already exist, various workshops and presentations will be given in the WORKSPACE, especially set up for that purpose. Each week a different organization takes charge of the WORKSPACE, with projects in which you can join in and take part, from free software to mobile telephone, video, napster and vlogging workshops.

November 27 - December 2

Dominik Bartkowski (F & PL), Bareback

The project deals with censorship and internet filtering, displaying how censor ware works and how it generates and influences language on sexuality, desire and lust. A movie generator and video editor show the audience how censorship limits the vision and disclosure of desire. The software is realized as a realtime-generated multimedia video installation based on Linux, ffmpeg, mencoder and Python/PIL.
By deconstructing, morphing, overlapping video images coming from different movies, we are trying to frame our dreams and communicate them through You Tube or Flickr to people around us.
“Deconstructive editing”, is a software for the appropriation of video materials that are downloaded and viewed through the network. Deconstructing video images, combining them with texts, allows to display information in a more individual way, open for a critical or personal approach. It opens a door for a discussion in between, where, filtered codified images and videos could express what the official flow of information is omitting.

Dominik Bartkowski is present during opening hours of the exhibition to show his project.

Opening hours: Tuesday through Saturday and first Sunday of the month, 1:00 to 6:00 p.m.
