While going through my inbox (long story!! weird behavior!! strange fusions going on!!) I found this link to a project that might be interesting for Kristian and Anja and anybody else interested in robotic creatures for that matter.

Archives

For those of you looking for archives of text, video, photography and so on, here a couple of good resources:

Internet Archive:

“The Internet Archive is building a digital library of Internet sites and other cultural artifacts in digital form. Like a paper library, we provide free access to researchers, historians, scholars, and the general public.”
For those looking for old film/tv footage for download, got to the Prelinger Archive.

Thinking about the piece Richardo is setting up at the moment, I remembered this project by among others Hans-Christoph Steiner a NY based sound artist that I had the pleasure of meeting last year in Montreal.

Check out Charlie White

(Particularly for Anja, and Kristian)

Charlie White is a Los Angeles photographer, or rather he constructs hyperreal photographs.

IMG: Friday Night by Charlie White (from his website)

“Using a combination of fiction, artifice, and make-believe to represent the human condition, many of White’s photographs explore America’s social fictions and the tensions in identity and perception they generate. White shares a relationship with the directorial forms of photography practised by such artists as Gregory Crewdson and Jeff Wall. Applying cinematic techniques, his set-up photographs are directed and staged narrative stills. This narrative focus can be perceived in his previous photographic series like In a Matter of Days (1999) or Understanding Joshua (2001) which employ a pictorial play between reality and fiction, occasionally taken to grotesque extremes. Understanding Joshua is a series of photos of a puppet meant to represent “complete fragility manifest in a body,” placed in various situations related to human relationships.”
