John & James Whitney

“Five film exercises (film 2-3)” (1944) by John and James Whitney.

The Whitney brothers’ ‘Five film exercises’ (1943-1944) are based on modernist composition theory. They created their films with cut-out masks, so the photographed image is direct light shaped. The pioneer electronic sound is composed especially for these films, precisely controlled and written directly on the film’s soundtrack area.

Watch film 1 and 4 too: Read More »

Thomas Bakker


Last friday was the presentation of the work ‘Impuls’ by Thomas Bakker.

‘Impuls’ (2010) was made for the CKE Eindhoven (NL), a center for the arts.
A series of LED-screens on the outside of the building project visual noise. The screens are connected through LED lines, showing the flow of energy. The intensity of the noise corresponds with the activity inside the building and changes accordingly during the day.
The video was shot during the opening…
