Sparwasser HQ Video screening  and newsletter

Sparwasser HQ presents

three trips to a new space
video and music at
Z-Bar Thursday 21st of November 2002 at 9. p.m.

Videos by Kim Collmer and David Krantz
Music by Matti Kallioinen [Abnormal Audio]

Sparwasser HQ invites you to take a trip through new spaces:
In his 3D animation entitled "What" the artist David Krantz whirls
the viewer through the natural and philosophical history of mankind.
The 3D effect and the symbolic characters presented make the signs
and images of the video expand out into actual space, becoming very
present. At the same time this very presence hightens the level of
abstraction. Through the never ending story of human "Truths" passing
before our eyes, the viewer is left with a certain feeling of
insecurity. Pleasantly disturbing, "What" is a piece that, in a very
humorous way, stresses our sense of "natural development".


Kim Collmer's video animation "Mercury Moon" evolves around a similar
effect, though built up in the classical "cut and move" technique out
of very simple materials, Collmer creates a not definable moon
landscape. She plays with the perception of materials and
proportions, distorting the fragile animation world through the use
of electric blue lights.

Kim Collmer describes the piece as follows: Mercury Moon investigates
the tension between regimented order and organic growth. Using
certain tropes of science fiction such as a space station, alien
landscapes, and a futuristic city, Mercury Moon presents the viewer
with a place of magic and imagination. In this world, glittering
plants can grow from lunar energy and cities can be reconstructed
from ice formations.
Mercury Moon is a simulated reality that attempts to call its
construct into our awareness. But through its realization it
demonstrates its own internal logic - from growth to destruction,
order to unrest. In a sense, this constructed reality is as real as
any other, reflecting the attempt to visualize and control our own
spaces. (Kim Collmer will be present at the screening)

Last but not least:
To all of you who missed the release concert by Matti Kallioinen at
Z-Bar on the 31st of October: here is your second chance to get to
know the music of Matti Kallioinen and Abnormal Audio.
Starting the evening at Z-Bar with the playing (and selling) of his
CD "Koncentrerad Saft" (concentrated juice). The music from his first
CD shifts playfully between electronic smurf country and more obscure
Nordic fairy tale like sounds.
Do not miss it this time!
