Track one | eteam | 2011 | 1:35 min.

Lets turn into a narrow street where it's dark and less busy. I can't catch it when the sun is shining. We need grey days for this. Here it comes, all by itself. Small, bigger, bigger, whoosh, smaller, smaller. Nice! Now some stillness. I double behind your shoulder. Me, the rear view mirror. Objects are gone before they appear. Small, big, bigger, whoosh, vanished. Keep going now. We'll run into it again by coincidence. Waiting makes no sense. Remember the sign? "no relax no easy". I count until twenty. No. No. No. No. No. Yes. OK. Replay. The object is replaced by the object that was removed. Cherry Crap. The bus drove in. How absurd. Where is that bus coming from?

Since 2001 Franziska Lamprecht and Hajoe Moderegger have been collaborating under the name eteam. Most of their projects are based on random pieces of land they buy on the Internet, on ebay or in Second Life. These properties provide the foundations for hybrid online and offline explorations and the execution of what we see as a potential improvement to the place. Their projects have been featured at P.S.1, Eyebeam, MUMOK Vienna, Centre Pompidou Paris, Neues Museum Weimar, Nelson Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in Spain among other places. Eteam's works have been shown at the Transmediale in Berlin, The Taiwan International Documentary Festival in Taipei, the New York Video Festival, and the 11th Biennale of Moving Images in Geneva. They have received grants and commissions from Rhizome, Art in General, NYSCA and the Experimental Television Center. They have been awarded residencies at Eyebeam, Harvestworks, MacDowell, Yaddo, Smack Mellon and the Center for Land Use Interpretation. Most recently they have been awarded a Creative Capital Grant in emerging fields for their project: OS Grabeland and they are 2010 Fellows of the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation..

  Sans titre | Neil Beloufa | 2010 | 15:00 min.

A cardboard decor and photographs reconstitute a luxury Californian-type villa in Algeria. Its inhabitants, neighbours and other protagonists imagine themselves there to explain why and how the latter was occupied by terrorists in order to hide whilst, paradoxically, it is entirely in glass. They even polished it clean so as to leave no traces. This improbable and irresolvable anecdote encourages the characters to invent images of anevent given media coverage without the images nor the story and thus missing the main point.

Neil Beloufa, born in France in 1985, lives and works in Paris. After studying at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts (ENSBA) and the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs (ENSAD) in Paris, he is currently member of the 2010 promotion of Le Fresnoy - National Studio for contemporary art-FR. He was awarded several times notably with the Prix Videoforme of Clermont Ferrand 2009, the Grand Prix IndieLisboa 2009 and the ARTE prize for a European Short Film-54th Oberhausen Film Festival. His work was shown in four solo exhibitions in Frankfurt, Los Angeles, Paris and New-York, and selected for other collective exhibitions and projects since 2007 (12th Biennial of moving images in Geneva, Prague International Triennial, Momenta Art Brooklyn, Netherland Media Art Institute in Amsterdam, Espace Croisé in Roubaix-FR, Beaux Arts of Marseille-FR …). His films were screened in the main international festivals for video and documentary.

  How High Is Up? | Jessye McDowell | 2011 | 7:11 min.
    "How High Is Up" incorporates appropriated footage from disaster films, specifically images of characters at the moment of recognition of the spectacle about to unfold. The characters onscreen look up in fear, wonder, shock, and amazement, but viewers are left to imagine what they are looking at. The video is meant for projection, so that the viewer's physical position – gazing up at the spectacle – mirrors that of the actors onscreen.

Jessye McDowell is a video and new media artist who recently received her MFA from the University of North Carolina- Chapel Hill. She grew up in Kentucky and received a degree in Media Studies from the New School University in NYC. Her work is interested in virtual experience, particularly in relation to film and advertising, and it's ability to conjure wonder in the most banal ways.

  A Film | Hisham Bizri | 2010 | 8:32 min.
    This is a film poem about love. A Lebanese-American filmmaker photographs a woman in Paris: as a trapeze artist, a model, a lover, and a child. The film attempts to capture that moment between wakefulness and dream. It carries within it melancholy and loneliness, sadness and joy, adulthood and childhood. It evolves out of the metaphor that life is a circular journey whose end is "to arrive where we started / And know that place for the first time" (T. S. Eliot, Little Gidding).
Director Hisham Bizri was born in Lebanon.  He began his career as a stage actor and director in Beirut where he also studied Physics.  He started to work in pictures in the US under Raúl Ruiz and James Shamus in New York City and Miklós Jancsó in Budapest.  He directed fifteen short films that have won the Rockefeller and Guggenheim awards, as well as the American Academy Rome Prize, among others.  He has worked in cities such as Beirut, Boston, New York, Chicago, Minneapolis, Dublin, Seoul, Rome, Biarritz, and Paris where he made 35mm, 16mm, and super-8 films that have been shown internationally.  In 2004, he co-founded the Arab Institute of Film with the Danish Film Institute. He is a Professor of Film in Minneapolis and a member of "The Actors Workout" at the Guthrie Theater.

  Purgatorium | Andrew Gaston | 2010 | 10:10 min.

In a pattern matching of sequences, an ever-shifting multi-screen composition creates a momentum of unending suspense. Shadow filled rooms, corridors, doorways and staircases form an inescapable labyrinth of domestic interiors, in which each thread acts as an incomplete story. Unrelenting claustrophobia is contrasted with the continual threat from an unseen world. Is the intruder assassin or saviour? As the shadow persistently tries to visit - there is an absence of any denouement. In a failing chain of communication, the buzz of the intercom, the ring of the telephone, the knock at the door, cannot awake the dreamer.

Andrew Gaston is a video artist and creative director based in London. His art is regularly toured by the Visor Gallery, Valencia and he is currently directing commercials and music videos for some of the UK`s biggest production houses.
