New performance: Licking Rim


“It’s interesting to note how the quality of the videos is influenced by socio-geographical factors, how wealth, technology, and media are related, image quality is related to power and importance”, private email by Nathan Terry

Fake movie in real movie


The above clip comes from a recent Italian movie titled “L’amore e’ imperfetto”. In one of the scenes, the guy’s striptease, you can see the poster we designed for our fake movie United We Stand, hanging on a wall. We don’t know how our work ended up there, but we find it interesting. Is it there as an artwork, hanging on the wall of a supposed art collector (the guy doing the striptease)? Or is it a movie poster, put there tongue-in-cheek by the movie director, who’s playing with his own audience? Or, finally, is it there just as a poster and no one realized the movie never existed? I guess they are all true, it depends on who is the audience…

BEFNOED


befnoed tumblr url

We spent the last six months on the most obscure, peripheral, forgotten social networks around the world, in Cambodia, Russia, China, Zambia… And came back with a new work: BEFNOED.

We are giving instructions to anonymous workers to realize webcam performances. The performers are hired through crowdsourcing services, so we do not know who they are, where they are, or even their motivations. The resulting videos are dispersed on social networks you may never have heard of.

Links to new videos are posted daily at befnoed.tumblr.com
