OJOBOCA: NEW PICTURE CHRONICLES – TRAVELING TOUR

EPFC | November 18th, 2019

Being two separate compendiums of moving pictures representing events and personages of recent history, profane and sacred. Presented in the form of a 16mm film and a 35mm slide projector performance.

Comfort Stations

16mm | 26 min | color & b/w | 2018

All this material was found. From what we can gather, it makes up some sort of psychological test. A couple, seemingly non-professionals, created the test. We don’t have their names, only their initials: B and K.

In a box we found two film cans and a folder. Inside film can A there was a roll of 16mm picture negative. Inside film can B there was a roll of 16mm sound negative.

External Shudders

Studies for a new insect cinema
35mm slides, external shutters, rotating screen | 40 min | 2019

We present our existing attempts at creating a new insect cinema based on the theory of spirit anarchy put forth by Dagmara Král, creator of the first insect cinema.

(Please keep in mind this cinema is not intended for human subjects. This presentation is meant to be solely illustrative. Any experiential effects are strictly peripheral.)

About Dagie Brundert

I was born in a small town in the middle of West Germany. Beautiful nature, but boring after a while… I moved to Berlin and studied visual arts / experimental film. Fell in love with my Super 8 camera (Nizo) in 1988. Since then I try to be a particle-finder, a wave-catcher and a good story-teller. I try to absorb weird beautiful things from this world. Chew them and spit them out again. http://dagiebrundert.de/
