Videos and desserts, and way to go?

Last night I went to the closing reception in addition to the local film festival. In fact it was more or less an obligation but also a sign of mutual respect, always late at night, people talking to, or most of the time beyond, one another. 

Nevertheless, it was the night where again I felt myself utterly alone. Not with the people, however, whom I quite often know quite well. But the context, it was a film festival, and then this whole atmosphere of almost passionate cinematographic…

It is a conclusion, according to a most personal approach to computer graphics. And I’ve named it Slowfilm,, but also as a reference to, Slowfood, i.e. savour and long time digestion.

In fact you cannot see it directly on the Internet, and I may eventually send certain things to you, but only by post. Basically seen, it is again to find myself as a member of a very old breed or family, made up with sorcerers, alchemist and then, in…

Any comments on that?

Of course I’m maybe the last one to realize myself? And that after all what I’m trying to do here, up till then there’s been so much talk about computers and so-called artificial intelligence. And that after all the way I’m working, and probably others like me, it is within a computer/art related environment, sorry not to be a little more specific about it? Sometimes to come in with a sensation, make or create something only to be described as – artificial life. Any comments on that?

End of a period, beginning of a new?

After having to stay here with me for more than six months and then working together, also an old friend of Siggraph, Yves Bodson. All technical problems are now sorted out and obstacles particulaly in terms of creativity way behind, or somewhat at the beginning of a much deeper and a much more comprehensive way of working. I.e. finally to have found my own quite personal way of working, including the ability of publishing, on DVDs and not entirely on the Internet, both full scale but also…

Three or four hours or whatever

For instance – ”three or four hours” or maybe even more? The idea is to do something, call it a slideshow or whatever, where as a comparison an oil canvas and it never dries up completely, so that from early morning till late in the night, sometimes there is a somewhat different panting coming out? Or in fact, in case you get my point, with a computer, paint in transition so to speak.

Year 2011, and onwards –

Now finally to have come to, but first of all again to realize that this is really a new kind of art?

Important question?

Yesterday, I was trying to look in to Nero. To see whether in there I could find asolution to a possible slide show, going smoothly from one, two, three four andso on and so far, I didn’t.

Because what is really, so, by the end of the road, that IF we find and it must exist,all of us and even with the smallest means, we can then prepare things even for the biggest…
