Folgen

15-Nov-12

Folgen, a 45-minute lecture performance, draws on the existing narratives of video makers found on YouTube to build a multi-layered media landscape of Berlin. My subjective approach, which weaves together mapping, literature and live performance, combines fragments of images and sound from YouTube videos with my own narration, using the traces video makers have left in the public sphere of the internet to follow people throughout the city. The performance is a deliberate mixing between reality and fiction, an interweaving narrative about desire.

Ilica 1

21-Apr-12

Ilica 1 is a street address in the centre of Zagreb and the address of the first business skyscraper in Croatia, built in the 50s, which is now rendered obsolete.

The project Ilica 1 is a docu-fictive narrative about urban housing in Zagreb, centred around how past, present and future public and private spaces are depicted via professional and amateur video found on YouTube. The videos include geo-locational information which links each video to the street address which it refers to. By combining both official and unofficial viewpoints, a story emerges from an uncoordinated and diverse collection of approaches and opinions around how urban spaces are depicted, designed, contested over and occupied.

21-Apr-12

The project ‘Folgen’ looks at the publication of personal archives and the tension between the public and private experience. This is explored by the personal experience of what it is like to follow somebody, first by monitoring the videos people put online, then following this information to actual physical addresses within the city where these videos were produced. Staged as a performance and installation, Folgen draws on the existing narratives of amateur video makers found on YouTube to build a multi-layered media landscape of Berlin.
