Transmedia∙Archive∙Experimentation {Vasilios Papaioannu} ◦●○article○●◦

Long walks into the woods of Oregon, recording nature’s voice for an imaginary future project. Soundscapes of reality. Some rain. Water. Echoes. A dead cat. (Patsy I miss you 😔 ). An imaginary future project. Maybe. Or even hidden treasures in a thrift store, somewhere in New York. Dusty old super 8 rolls; family moments that are long gone. Dreams from the past. Audio. Or image. Doesn’t matter, really. It can be a start. A middle. An end. A possibility.


Article on TWO ~~~~★[read read read]★

«What might have been and what has been point to one end, which is always present»

…Two is a dance of two people speaking different languages which intertwine in the cinema frame, pushing it towards its extreme possibilities. Not only that, their dialogue is purely cinematic to the extent that the signals they send to each other are fully realized only on the film, in the presence of the numerous audiovisual components that cinema can offer.

[november] Eidetiker: The Glacier Journey goes to CICA⑇⭐︎★🎆

Eidetiker: The Glacier Journey a collaborative project with composer and dj Chamberlain Zhang screens today and until the 18th of November at CICA Museum for the “Contemporary Landscape” exhibition. The project explores landscape in the form of memory and its deterioration by the passing of time. Distorting a landscape from the past using pixelization is a way to visualize what we have done to our environment and continuing doing it until today. The only difference is that pixels can be beautiful!!!!!

Here an excerpt of the project.

⭐️Premiere of my new project "Two"//University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee⭐️

My new project Two will premiere this upcoming Thursday 5pm at the University of Wisconsin (Milwaukee Union Cinema) hosted by the UWM Moving Image Society.

The screening will benefit the UWM Film Studies Moving Image Archive, a collection of classic, experimental, educational, and orphan 16mm films. "Two" was shot using various media, primarily 16mm and MiniDv but also Super 8, 35mm and 120mm film. The venue is free and showcases amazing experimental work. Please come and support!

Filming the present using media from the past helps me understand where I am and where I will be. History is important in all its manifestations, especially now.

The audio recording and the voice that we hear throughout parts of the movie is by the wonderful filmmaker Emma Piper-Burket. Thank you! 

"Two filmmakers set out to create an audio archive for possible use in future projects. She records ambient sounds, vocally annotating them with a brief description; he films the environments through which they pass."
