Future Cinema ZKM Karlsruhe 2002-03.

exhibitioncurators J. Shaw / P. Weibel

in collaboration with 

PHILIP POCOCK, AXEL HEIDE and onesandzeros

"And the screen itself, even if it keeps a vertical position by 
convention, no longer seems to refer to the human posture, like a window 
or a painting, but rather constitutes a table of information, an opaque 
surface on which are inscribed data, information replacing nature, and 
the brain-city, the third eye, replacing the eyes of nature."

2003 Fountain-Image with Philip Pocock(Unmovie) in Chronofiels, Lotringer13, Munich.

The life of the afterlife of cinema depends on its internal struggle with informatics. It is necessary to set up against the latter the question which goes beyond it, that of its source and that of its addressee.

Unmovie Mandala in collaboration with 

Philip Pocock, AXEL HEIDE, FELIX HUBER, 
FLORIAN WUEST 
Galerie OBORO Montreal 2005.

Corner Mandala is a Silicon based space-exploration. Never-ending open to space a mandala is space as center based.  The corner is the beginning of everything. At the beginning of virtual space-exploration.. everything, the past is in question and in the same time time is spacing itself for another moment of history.

2003 STAND-IN

in collaboration with 

PHILIP POCOCK, PETER SCUPELLI 
Timothy Druckrey curator,
Wood Street Galleries, Pittsburgh, 
2003.

Rather than attempting to situate the discourse of media within evolutionary models, Unmovie (and its group of collaborators) abandons the surface in favor of the situation, abandons the narrative in favor of the event, abandons immersion in favor of the atmosphere.

Subject: gregor/Unmovie/time


Time always does retain the form of leaving and coming, but we can understand that what we see is an illusion of time, of cause and effect, and in the moment we realize that, we have this present moment of Existence-Time, which is just Existence-Time itself.


The same we can say about the river/flood of thoughts, the eternal inner film, which goes freely from the present to the past, from the future to the present, from the past to the future, from the present to the present, from the future to the future and from the past to the past.

2003 Curtain-Image (Unmovie)in collaboration with Philip Pocock International Short Film Festival / Time-based Arts, Kingston-upon-Hull, UK.

What we have to develop is what sometimes appears under the slightly ridiculous name "interactivity." Of course we're never going to achieve some kind of symmetry or reciprocity. This mirage, that the addresse might reappropriate what reaches him, is a fantasy. This is no reason to abandon the addressee to passivity and not to militate for all forms of the right of response, right of selection, right of interception, right of intervention. A vast field is open here.

2003 KIASMA EXTENSION PROPOSAL, in collaboration with Philip Pocock

Helsinki KIASMA

If a house is a living value, it must integrate an element of unreality. All values must remain vulnerable, and those that do not are dead."

GASTON BATCHELARD, The Poetics of Space, 1958.

This is, in fact, Hegel's definition of architecture: anything in a building that "did not point to utility."

BERNARD TSCHUMI, Space|Action|Movement, 1999.

THE TRUTH ABOUT PLASTIC , in collaboration with Philip Pocock and others 

Staatsgalerie Stuttgart 2001

Space some space 

Where is the place of being as space spacing the location of being space? Being space is a noon-location or a non-location in real space. 

Material is used as in-between being as the body is here and nowhere, now.  The truth about plastic is a poetic text about the plasticity of the truth as spacing time.
