GOOD MORNING IS A RIDICULOUS STATEMENT

author: SCRATCH VIDEO – duration: 01:11

And good morning to you! This video was made by Scratch Video. Scratch writes:

“I work as a documentary film editor in NYC by day and make these small pieces by night. It’s a nice balance. Scratch is the name of my character that makes these films.”

She then cites the following fantastic quote from François Truffaut from 1957, worth publishing here as well:

“The film of tomorrow appears to me as even more personal than an individual and autobiographical novel, like a confession, or a diary. The young filmmakers will express themselves in the first person and will relate what has happened to them: it may be the story of their first love or their most recent; of their political awakening; the story of a trip, a sickness, their military service, their marriage, their last vacation… and it will be enjoyable because it will be true and new… The film of tomorrow will not be directed by civil servants of the camera, but by artists for whom shooting a film constitutes a wonderful and thrilling adventure. The film of tomorrow will resemble the person who made it, and the number of spectators will be proportional to the number of friends the director has. The film of tomorrow will be an act of love.”

FOR THE GUGGENHEIM


author video: VERNISSAGE TV – artist: JENNY HOLZER – duration: 06:16

Sit down, relax. Click to enlarge the video (below in the frame, on the right). Take 6 minutes of your lunch hour and watch. This is a work of Jenny Holzer made especially for the Guggenheim Museum in New York in celebration of the restoration. As the Guggenheim writes:

“Her transformative work will cast large-scale texts—comprising the artist’s own writings and poems—directly onto Frank Lloyd Wright’s curving architecture. Suffused with a play of light and changing language, the building and its surroundings will become an environment for looking, discussing, and gathering.”

It will be on display from dusk to 11 pm every Friday through December 31.

The video was shot by Heinrich Schmidt from VernissageTV, an art video blog with it’s homebase in Basel, Switzerland.
