Extreme Skipping (2006, 15.7MB, 2:36 min.)

This short was made a little while back, about one of the most
underappreciated universal sports: extreme skipping. If you are a skipper
and have footage of yourself skipping, make sure to submit it to us.
We would love to check out your moves.

Transitos, (familiarmente Slows), es un trabajo que une la fotografia
y el video , la fotografia por que son planos fijos y tratamiento de
encuadre y luz puramente fotografico, el video aporta el movimiento,
la duracion y el sonido que rodea estos parajes, podriamos hablar
de fotografias sonoras con movimiento. Transitos son lugares por
los que el ser humano pasa o se deja llevar de forma automatica
y que por ese automatismo, deja de apreciar, aunque siempre deja
su huella sea esta sonora o fisica. Los slows estan divididos en
4 apartados: paisaje maritimo, paisaje urbano, retratos en tren,
y finalmente, paisaje rural.

Transitos (literally ‘Transits’, although I’ve got into the habit of
calling them “Slows”, for obvious reasons) is a work, or series of works,
that unites photography and video. Photography, in the insistence on a
fixed plane and the purely photographic treatment of frame and light;
video, in the introduction of the movement, duration and sound which
suffuse these locations. Perhaps:
‘Photography with sound and movement’ !
Transitos are places human beings pass through almost automatically and
therefore unconsciously, nevertheless always leaving their imprint, be it
sonic or material.
The pieces are divided into four groups: seaside, countryside, urban
landscape and train portraits.

Thoughtful, slow-burning, work of sometimes heart-melting beauty from
Spanish photographer Gonzalo Vidal Soler .

‘At Home with the Colonel’ – pilot (2006, 54 MB, 14:53 min.)

Pilot for a proposed series of interviews by Mark Sanders
with contemporary artists, directed by Mark Logue,
who seems to have a serious track record.
The press release says the interviews wil be ‘playful & conversational’.
Can’t be bad – on the basis of this, hope v. much it gets commissioned.
Still undecided about the Chapmans, whether tossers or wunderkinder,
but this definitely attempts to shed some light thereon.
