STEPHEN BECK MEETS FUCK BUTTONS
CURATED BY MESSAGE IS THE MEDIUM
Stephen Beck: "I believe in spiritual technology. Video Weavings is a link between the modern (video) and the ancient (weaving) technologies. Video Weavings are based on poetic mathematical rhymes, or algorithms, visualized in real time on the warp and weft of video's horizontal and vertical scanning electron beams, color phosphors, plasma cells, and LCD pixels."

THANKS TO STANDISH LAWDER
ABOUT THE FILM: "In NECROLOGY, a 12-minute film, in one continuous shot he (Standish Lawder) films the faces of a 5:00 PM crowd descending via the Pan Am building escalators. In old-fashioned black and white, these faces stare into the empty space, in the 5:00 PM tiredness and mechanical impersonality, like faces from the grave. It's hard to believe that these faces belong to people today. The film is one of the strongest and grimmest comments upon the contemporary society that cinema has produced." - Jonas Mekas, The Village Voice
