  • Title: Babel Fiche
    Descriptive info: .. Babel Fiche.. Home.. About.. Babel TV.. Ideas.. A brief history of microfilm.. Microfiche works.. What is Remix Cinema?.. Follow.. Terms conditions.. Latest news.. Watch Babel Fiche.. Steven Bode.. , Film and Video Umbrella: Babel Fiche began as an online call for user-donated video content in which people’s singular and disparate perspectives on Life, the Universe and Everything might offer a patchwork cross-section of contemporary experience.. If YouTube is the accepted star-chart of this strange new online cosmos, Babel Fiche is a self-consciously small-scale satellite.. […] Distilled and compressed onto microfilm, these cryptic thumbnail images went on to inspire their own mini-narrative.. Featuring contributions from writers Gaia Holmes and Stefan Skrimshire, a resulting 18-minute video imagines this time capsule of found footage from the vantage point of the near future, where archivists pore over, and labour to piece together, these once-familiar everyday scenes.. Embellished by an atmospheric soundtrack by musician Graham Massey (808 State), Griffiths’ project reminds us how images of the past are so often lost in translation yet continue to speak to us all the same.. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++.. 8 August 2012: Babel Fiche launches at Castlefield Gallery.. For its re-launch,.. Castlefield Gallery.. is pleased to announce.. , an exhibition of new work by artist.. Dave Griffiths.. for its annual solo exhibition.. Review.. With the world in considerable political, economic and cultural flux and turmoil, there has been recent evidence of a return to interests in socio-political themes in contemporary visual art and the 3 main exhibitions for 2012/13 have been programmed under the overarching annual theme of.. World In Transition.. referencing these issues as points of departure.. The.. Babel Fiche.. exhibition features two ambitious new works by Griffiths,.. Deep Field [The Photographic.. Universe].. and the film.. , developed from a.. Film and Video Umbrella.. commission and co-produced with Castlefield Gallery.. For the past few years Griffiths’ work has involved the use of ‘cuedots’, microdots and microfiche, exploring a fascination with what was conceived of as ‘redundant’ technology with the advent of the digital era.. These newly commissioned works further develop his interest in this area.. Griffiths’ film explores the human urge to collect, categorise and remix images through a critical questioning of the future of digital image archives.. Video fragments from personal and public archives were collected and re-presented from the compressed contents as still frames printed on an edition of unique colour microfiche plates.. Making sense of the excess imagery littered on the internet as well as in our personal hoards of photographic images and film footage, the project imagines how future generations may perceive the current times.. In the making of the film Griffiths involved a number of collaborators, to broaden the scope of response to the archive content; Applied ethics writer.. Stefan Skrimshire.. and poet.. Gaia Holmes.. as scriptwriters, musician.. Graham Massey.. producing the soundtrack, and artist and filmmaker.. Joe Duffy.. as editor.. Griffiths alters our seismic understanding of time and history.. He orchestrates a disjuncture between the actual, its documentation, consequential archiving and concepts of time-shifting, treating them as malleable components to be expanded, shifted and contracted, radically reappraising the production and consumption of culture.. In Griffiths’ film the analogue image archive re-emerges as an object of scrutiny for a future generation of archaeologists, with a mise-en-scène of Manchester’s cityscape shot at the top of the iconic Beetham Tower skyscraper.. 5 July : artplayer feature on Babel Fiche shoot..

    Descriptive info: Find out below how microfilm evolved after its invention in 1850s Manchester.. Since early use as microdots in Victorian slide cabinets and religious trinkets, this humble medium has seen action in world war, Cold War, research, mass storage, engineering and archives.. Microfilm technology featured in an imaginary forerunner to the Internet, and has travelled into space.. In the 1990s it became a dead medium as digital PDF took hold, but since 2006 has re-emerged as ultra-high-res colour stock launched by Ilford..

  • Title: » What is Remix Cinema? Babel Fiche
    Descriptive info: The fragment is that part of the totality of the work that opposes totality Adorno.. Is remix the future of cinema? People are sharing clips, sampling TV, and hacking devices to deconstruct, mash-up, and make new digital videos.. Such practices, which are emerging with the rise of social networks and online video, encourage us to totally rethink the process of film production and blur relationships between producers and audiences.. These were the questions debated in March 2011 by the.. Remix Cinema Workshop.. , held at.. Oxford Internet Institute.. A wealth of unique international projects were discussed, which all explore new ways of producing films and engaging audience collaboration through crowd-sourcing, modding, open source, and cloud computing.. was there too here s a.. link to my poster presentation.. Archive film is a typical choice for appropriation and reinvention through short films and VJing.. Sanna Marttila and Kati Hyyppa of.. Media Lab Helsinki.. discussed the.. EU Screen.. Open Images.. projects in which European TV archive assets with Creative Commons licences are available for mash-up workshops.. In Amsterdam,.. EYE Film Institute Netherlands.. have made analogue film clips from Dutch national archives digitally available for web users to compete in remix competitions.. In the commercial film world several projects rely on participatory production models.. For instance, Ridley Scott and Kevin MacDonald s.. Life in a Day.. is Youtube user-generated cinema where global shooters (who seem to mostly own DSLRs ) globally observed 24 hours through clips that were then mediated through a director into a recognisable feature-length format.. Taking its cue from.. A Swarm of  ...   memory into new.. creative convergences of rhythm and narrative.. Sonvilla-Weiss points to a future in which ever-more decentralised.. cloud editing.. could allow an endless supply of video fragments to be manipulated.. ad infinitum.. through remote digital archives.. The cloud is already available on YouTube, and offers the utopian possibility of limitless, free-for-all narrative experiments driven through social media platforms and meta-tags.. The challenges and politics of remix cinema clearly lie in its progressive open-source principles a freedom to use, modify and redistribute.. The argument is best articulated by Brett Gaylor s.. Rip! A Remix Manifesto.. The Open Source movement is routed both.. legally.. , through attention to copyright attribution, and.. anarchically.. by remixers assuming free license to use any material they feel like.. It ultimately undermines the commodity value of images, and argues instead for their global communal ownership.. outcomes are a set of microfilms inviting interpretation in 500 years by fictional future remixers.. Will this be a time where images are finally liberated, where culture and entertainment industries find new ways to profit and totally relinquish their archive into public ownership? Or a tolerant regime of fair use? Or an era of stifling control in which the archive is securely commodified and remix is extinct?.. Leave a Reply.. Cancel reply..
