Works by Steina and Woody Vasulka

Steina and Woody Vasulka are pioneers of the screening of video art and the 
development of digital arts. These screenings highlight some of their work 
and complement the talk that they gave at Bournemouth University earlier in 2010.
Artifacts - 'This videotape spotlights the research that Woody Vasulka has conducted since 
the mid-1970s to generate electronic images without camera support. Though Artifacts (1980) 
arises from a pragmatic relationship with technology, the work nonetheless remains a playful 
discovery of a new visual language. Artifacts is the second part of the series Syntax of 
Binary Images, which also includes Transformations (1978). The work provides an overview of 
the effects created by digital-analogue digitizers of the time. Here, Woody relies especially 
on the Digital Images Articulator (also called Imager), which he co-designed with 
Jeffrey Schier.' - Fondation Langlois
Running Time: 22 minutes
Summer Salt - Summer Salt is a dramatic exploration of the phenomenology of space and vision, 
as Steina uses mechanical and electronic devices to physically investigate the southwestern landscape. 
The artificial vision allows the viewer altered perceptions and spatial perspectives. The five 
segments include dynamic exercises with Steina's mirrored lens attachment, the physicality of 
unexpected camera placement, and electronic manipulation of the textures and colors of the landscape.
Running Time: 18 minutes

Motion Frames - intimate mini sketches of seaside promenaders, by Louise Pack

People promenading on Bournemouth seafront, on a hot summer’s day, were invited to present 
themselves to camera, with no direction or supervision, in a style reminiscent of Andy Warhol’s 
film portraits. Sitting behind the frame, participants are isolated from the everyday and free 
to express their thoughts alone, without mediation. This piece reflects the artist’s interest 
in how the placement of a camera effects certain situations.

colour half-tone printing, DADA, Surrealism, television, computing, global telephone networks, Asimov’s I Robot,

of incidents at home, Max runs away wearing his wolf costume toward a world in his imagination. This world,
an ocean away, is inhabited by large wild beasts, including one named Carol who is much like Max himself 
in temperament. Instead of eating Max like they normally would with creatures of his type, the wild things 
befriend Max after he proclaims himself a king who can magically solve all their problems.
