(extracted from http://www.tomonarinishikawa.com/film.htm)

"Recently, Simon Soon, this year's KLEX guest curator, emailed an idea of having screening programs, selected from YouTube by other guest programmers, to the KLEX team. The email brought up interesting discussions, including a question about differences between video art and experimental cinema.

I thought it would be nice to post one of my email responses to the discussion on the blog here, hoping to have some responses from people out there."

Portrait of Sean Cubitt
(extracted from http://www.blogger.com/profile/11762116527377238907)

"Have we already forgotten? Why we got into this in the first place? How it was that the moving lights, the washes of colour, first brought us to this world and thanked us, with their generous presentation of themselves, for being there with them? Has the memory faded so radically of those first inklings of beauty, scattering in all its ungraspable ephemerality across our skins as much as our eyes, beams traversing and dragging into motion muscle and bowel, as music drag us into dance?"

still extracted from ALPSEE directed by Matthias Muller, 1995.

In speaking of experimental cinema one refers to a genre that is not a genre. The term attempts to draw together films of opposing tempers into a single species. Material films, found footage films, hand-made films, structural films, a broad variety of surrealistic films, diary projects, and hybrid forms are subsumed beneath this vague penumbra. Debates about the bloodlessness of our naming are as old and stereotypical as the term itself, which is used here despite its uneasy hold.

Experimental Film 101 - Words from Stan Brakhage   by admin  YouTube
what is experimental film? 09/09/10 05:07:08 pm

"Imagine an eye unruled by man made laws of perspective, an eye unprejudiced by compositional logic, an eye which does not respond to the name of everything but which know each object encountered in life through an adventure of perception. How many colors are there in a field of grass to the crawling baby unaware of green? How many rainbows can light create for the untutored eyes? How aware of variations in heat waves can that eye be? Imagine a world alive with incomprehensible objects and shimmering with an endless variety of movement and innumerable gradations of color. Imagine a world before the beginning was the world.
