Aliens in Dresden
Six strangers gathered at the entrance of the Academy of Music in Dresden. Gradually, their places are taken by others, however, the substance of the group remains unchanged.
Suspended by C D Friedrich we used to go there to film that crop of the crazy view over Děčín having no idea what it was for. We started in the middle of February. Russian officials condemned the `West` in warmongering and disinformation, going to attack Ukraine one week later.
Nonknowledge No No
The Nonknowledge No No performative lecture was the last in a series of lectures on the Gylleboverket platform for contemporary art and film in the vicinity of the Swedish city of Simrishamn and took place in September 2022.
Meeting place for Aliens
We were on the Documenta, and everything there seemed strange to us. We felt like people from another time and space, with completely different concerns and expectations. It was the same alienation at the Biennale in Venice in April. We shot a short film about this in the Back door Journalism style that we invented a few years earlier.
Surfers of the Apocalypse
All people on earth produce carbon dioxide and shoot short videos. We do the same. We drop such short videos, shot on a smartphone, into the archive. From that array, we render an endless random video stream. This stream can never be repeated, each time it presents a new version of the life.
The weak and sharp sound object was made from the shirt, that was cut into pieces for medical purposes, during the Indochina drift.
Light in the Room
Video projected on the wall captures the projection of the text on the wall in the same room: “A thought turns into a digital code. The code transforms into the light, then reflects from the object’s surface. Refracted light, being recoded again. Then, after a while, it is released into a wall of the room.”
Since 2014 Aliens have been publishing the annual report with verbatim and photo documentation of their nomadic artistic practice.
