Pecha Kucha Night

During the workshop we had a Pecha Kucha Night among us. This one was a little MAS style of Pecha Kucha (means chitchat in Japanese). Everybody or team presented his/her own unfinished thesis projects within the restricted time flow of the Pecha Kucha format.

Susanne and Corina put a great award for the winner that was selected with a voting for the best presentation: 2 editions of Landscript and one of the earlier landscape video collection Blicklandschaften, all published by the chair.

Modul 5 – Landscape Video and Photography

Modul 5 has started with the 3 days workshop that started in Erstfeld where we have been working for the thesis project since the last semester, and ended in Zurich. Corina Rüegg who is an artist and also a former graduate of MAS LA, and Susanne our tutor of landscape film and sound are conducting this module together that will be over by the end of this month.

During the workshop Corina gave us some inputs and a couple of exercises on photography. We also shot videos to be processed in Media Lab with the support of Susanne.

Section versus Video

I have recently discovered Quayola, an audiovisual artist whose works carry an appealing architectural sense. He also uses processing, VRAY and not surprisingly video editing as primary tools. Among his works there are some that I thought could be inspiring for our investigation on interacting the tools we have.
