Untitled Pol


















What does this work mean, the immersive virtual installation? The primary reference is musical, as in notation and graphic expression of coincident ambient and experimental electronic sounds. The work is also semiotic, as in text, and it has Suprematist references recalling Malevich as the stark spaces appear rapidly. This vast work represents a new direction in an intense artistic exploration. These comments by no means capture the essence of the work, which may be described quite differently by others.

Now I'm beginning to see the new.
A little change, yes.
Better, don't move.
Just watch.
Play with your camera
It's like very spare visual music.
It's very interesting and will hold up anywhere, in world or real.
Yes, a minimalist part of cosmos.
Precisely, and suggests musical notation.
It suggests legibility, a reading.
Quietness.
Also of course symbols used for speech or song lyrics.
So you see, it is perfect.
No, but I'm happy I could change my style a bit.
It represents an abstraction.
Very flat, with only the symbols or notes or patterns suggesting space, maybe a place far away that we don't know.
True, or the one close to us that we don't even know, which is in all of us.
Of course the musical style of the stream is correct, ambient electronic experimental.

"He doesn't know what to do..." and "Just Do It"







Arahan Claveau transforms a political black-and-white photo into a 3D image and very convincing corporate tombstone at LEA that at first you think is selling something. During civil disturbance such as New Orleans at Katrina and Seattle at WTC, establishment news media tend to spin the looting narrative and suppress political reality, as seen in the video. "Just Do It" effectively confronts the corporate with the political.
