Tomas Mankovsky – Sorry I’m Late (2009, 24.9MB, 3:11)

Lovely short film Sorry I’m Late.
Fun and engaging and very well done.
My only criticism: I know it’s important to
include proper credits, but must they be as
long as the piece itself?

3 Poems (2008, 21.3MB, 6:05 min)

Extracted from a longer video recorded at the Unversity of Chicago
last year.
To my shame I knew nothing of Kleinzahler’s work until I read about him
in the Guardian a couple of weeks ago.
To my great surprise ‘Before Dawn on Bluff Road’ ( from the Guardian article)
had me blubbing like a baby.
Anyway – see what you think to the three here.

Documentation of work of surpassing loveliness & smarts both, from Jessica Meuninck-Ganger
& Nathaniel Stern*** as they meld digital photo frames, printing and drawing into a hybrid form
which probably has no right to work but so does.
Says Nathaniel:
“These works premiered at the Armoury Gallery in Milwaukee, on a show called Night Work.
Some will be at Elaine Erickson gallery in June, at the Museum of Wisconsin Art in July, and 10-15 from the series will be on a large show at Gallery AOP in Johannesburg in Jan/Feb 2010.

***”The Nathaniel Stern?” I hear you gasp, “He of the infamous Wikipedia Art affair?
None but, gentle viewer, none but…
