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 .

The Chapman brothers
‘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.
