Mobile Agit-Kino: Iteration no. 1

Mobile Agit-Kino: Iteration no. 1 is a purpose-built mobile cinema; a large canvas expedition tent. The moving pictures in this iteration are not meant to agitate for revolution but to intimate unfamiliar and distant worlds. The mobile cinema plays on the ethnographer’s dream world as well as his and her role as cultural interpreter. It transmits images of the taiga: emanations of ficto-documents and implied histories.

voyages and sights seen: communications from one point to another and the illustration of these travels, largely through the medium of the photographic image. The scenes depicted here include the Taiga forests of Siberia, Canada's boreal wastelands, cosmopolitan centres such as Edmonton and Krasnoiarsk, but also Paris, Moscow, St. Petersburg, London, Edinburgh, Vancouver, and Toronto. There are also some more remote sites, like Ekonda, Mitkoff Island, Eggmont, Francis Peninsula, and Cabbagetown.

unnamed + faceless | body disembodied

This is an early experiment in a hypertext essay. This project touches on issues of surface and depth, the face, the head, and the effects of defacement and disembodiment. I was influenced by surrealism and a critique of the everyday.
