Transformations v 1.0 (2007, 54MB, 2:47 min)

We’ve featured some of Irish artist Kev Flanagan’s work here
before.
He’s just started a new video blog which manifests a radically different
approach to that of his previous work.
Here’s an example – it’s slow (in a good sense), meditative and hypnotic.
Kev says he’s been looking at a lot of Chris Marker’s work – I can see that high
seriousness coming through, but this puts me in mind more of Tarkovsky or
particularly Tarkovsky’s sensibility in the face of natural phenomena.

Rorschach Revelations (2005, 3.5MB, 1:56 min.)

‘A Rorschach test blot comes slowly into view. A voice responds to the image
in free flow of associations. The abstract image humorously morphs into a
recognizable one, in which the viewer identifies a demonic vision of the political left.’
.
