Using animation, sounds, warping and time shifts this 5 minute video loop runs forwards and backwards looking for forgotten details, mimicking the way memories are replayed in the mind. LoopLoop is made from an image sequence Patrick Bergeron captured in a train traveling to Hanoi in Vietnam. Bergeron filmed the houses along the railroad. The 1000 images of this sequence have been stitched into one long panoramic image. Moving elements have been seamlessly integrated into the panoramic still activating it in subtle and surprising ways.

location/dis-location(s): contingent promises continues Salloum’s visualization of the nature of the ‘natural’ and constructed environments. An extensive assembly of photographs, taken at various places the artist has visited over recent years, is composed through various signifiers and aesthetics. The images depict locations considered public and private, claimed and unsigned spaces, forms of the common, socio/ideological stage fronts, and domestic settings.These photographs are from Salloum’s ongoing body of work, untitled: photographs, that attempts to critically engage in the representation of public and private space. location/dis-location(s) approaches coming to terms with what it means to be making photographs here (and elsewhere) and the exploration of the possibilities of visualizing the nature of natural, urban, semi-urban, and sub-urban environments (and the totality of the constructs signified in those terms).

Media and installation artist Josephin Böttger presents a new work entitled Dynamo Lines, which looks at the fragmentation of cityscapes caused by social constructs, urban development, traffic, lights and movement. Three looped video projections depict time-lapsed motion and light from various vantage points of city grids and traffic. Working with musician Sergej Tolksdorf, Böttger’s video installation includes footage of actors emerging as a work team, observing busy highway arteries. But their movements are edited so they appear sporadic, contrapunctual to the rythm and flow of light from the streets. Josephin Böttger presented Trapez at New Forms Festival. The video documents the construction work that occurs at a building site; time and reality is distorted by time lapses and drawn elements that blend into the footage. The video examines construction and demolition, both key components of urban development.
