Central Saint Martins OVNi 2016 video art festival


logo 2 site web

The showreel comprises a selection of video works produced by recent graduates from the 4D Pathway, BA Fine Art and Central Saint Martins. The 4D Pathway focuses on the exploration of time-based, durational, performative, and interdisciplinary practices. Through these practices, critical and philosophical positions are engaged in relation to current ideas that include questions about the post-medium condition, ‘sound’ as a mode of critical thinking, the apparatus (dispositif) of technology and temporality. The Pathway has an experimental approach to the studio and explores how this might challenge conventions of practice. In this context, the idea of the ‘open work’ is engaged as a site where collaboration and production take place.  The 4D Pathway is part of the BA Fine Art course at Central Saint Martins and, within the course, works alongside the 2D, 3D and XD Pathways. The Pathway structure creates a focus for sustained critical engagement, enabling both specialisation and interdisciplinary communities of practice.

A staging of a curious relation between a performer and a collection of mannequins: Naegel has written, I’m attracted to the perfect-imperfect beauty of mannequins. They’re plastic versions of humans, with extremely symmetrical features.

Digital ruin, 2 min 45 sec, 2016

A camera seemingly moves over and across a digital cityscape, enters it, and runs through it.  The cityscape here is rendered digitally and as such is both in the present and a ruin of the past.
