beautifully filmed and photographed documentary about a group of people from a community in california called bombay beach, right at the salton sea. “ Director Alma Har’el was born in Tel Aviv, where she began her film career as a video artist, mixing live video content for music concerts around Europe. After moving to the US she established herself as music video director, creating several critically acclaimed videos. Her work with Zach Condon and the band Beirut resulted in the award winning music video for their single “Elephant Gun” which earned her a VMA nomination for best directorial debut.”

RGB wallpaper

Posted on | April 10, 2011 | No Comments

carnovsky, the milan based collecitve created RGB, a series of wallpapers that surprisingly mutate and interact with different chromatic stimulus. RGB is about the exploration of the “surface’s deepness”. RGB’s technique consists in the overlapping of three different images, each one in a primary color. the resulting images from this three level’s superimposition are unexpected and disorienting. the colors mix up, the lines and shapes entwine becoming oneiric and not completely clear.

the dark side of the lens

Posted on | October 2, 2010 | No Comments

“… Something that offers insight into what it takes to grind out a living as a water-based photographer in the surfing industry: a short experimental glimpse at a life lived in the shadow of obsessive photographic pursuits.”

Mickey Smith worked with Allan Wilson from the Astray Collective, who acted as Director of Photography on the project. Together they logged hours of footage across the Atlantic coastline, traveling around Ireland, Cornwall and Manchester. Shot in Super 16mm film, as well as groundbreaking work with Canon 5D mk11 Digital SLR, Smith also projected images of the huge walls of water within which he works, on to monster urban landscapes such as sky rises and castles in Manchester, as well as the cliff lines at his home of Ireland.”
