Liberated Words Festival (2014)

liberated-words-pics

I am happy be in such good company as was shown at this year’s Liberated Words Festival!

————————————————————————————–

CONGRATULATIONS! To everyone who took part in Liberated Words festival and our competition finalists. The winners were:

Best Music/Sound – judges Rich Ferguson and Mark Wilkinson
1st Proem: to Brooklyn Bridge by Suzie Hanna and Tom Simmons
2nd In droplets by Lorenzo Scacchia
3rd If grief were briefly to disappear by Marc Neys, Stevie Ronnie and Nic Sebastian

‘We made our assessment based on the effectiveness and aesthetic quality of the piece as a whole. Some factors we considered were:
Was the spoken word moving intellectually or emotionally?
Did the visuals enhance or elucidate the meaning of poem?
Did the images evolve over time, thereby increasing the ideas communicated?

Were the images thoughtfully produced and carefully considered?
Did the sound design enhance or distract from the spoken word?
Regarding the winning piece: We found the visual treatment in Proem to be arresting and original; clear in its intentions and unified in its design as it evolved visually throughout the piece. A balanced and elegant pairing of spoken words and moving pictures.’
————————————————————————————–

Best Editing: Judges poet Helen Moore and filmmaker Howard Vause
1st On A Prophet, Kathleen Roberts and Dave Richardson
2nd Proem: to Brooklyn Bridge, Suzie Hanna and Tom Simmons
3rd Standard of Truth, Daniel H. Dugas

‘Helen and I agreed that the editing of On a Prophet had both simplicity and emotional complexity, was truly compelling and that all it’s elements formed a stunningly integrated whole. Proem is an animation tour de force – in a class of it’s own really – and we both loved Standard of Truth for it’s quirkiness and narrative restraint.’

…Τί κάνουμε μετά το Όργιο?… Ο Μποντριγιάρ λέει πως ο,τι δεν κατάφερε να πάει πέρα από τον εαυτό του, είναι καταδικασμένο να αναπαράγεται εσαεί. Η κοινωνία φάνηκε ανίκανη να κάνει υπέρβαση του εαυτού της, αγόμενη προς άλλους σκοπούς, και αυτοεγκλείστηκε στη φυλακή της εικόνας της. Σήμερα φαίνονται όλα «απελευθερωμένα», ο κύβος ερρίφθη και το ερώτημα παραμένει πιο επίκαιρο από ποτέ: Τι κάνουμε μετά το Όργιο; Είμαστε άραγε καταδικασμένοι
να προσκρούουμε δίχως καμία δυνατότητα διαφυγής ξανά και ξανά στα τοιχώματα της εικονικής μας φούσκας, σαν τον ήρωα του Truman Show; Εμείς θεωρούμε ότι το ζητούμενο σήμερα είναι να σπάσουμε τη φούσκα της εικονικότητας και να καταστήσουμε απτό και πραγματικό το προσομοιωμένο,
να σπάσουμε τους φόβους & τις μαζικές αυταπάτες. Τότε θα συνειδητοποιήσουμε ότι τίποτα δεν έχει απελευθερωθεί πραγματικάκαι πως ο δρόμος της επανάστασης είναι μπροστά μας σε όλα τα επίπεδα. ..»

Co-Kisser Festival (2013)

glissement-blogue-nov-2013

Le festival Co-Kisser a eu lieu le 19 octobre 2013 à Minneapolis-St-Paul dans l’auditorium du Minnesota College of Art and Design (MCAD). Ma vidéo Glissement faisait partie du programme Soul on the Road – Physics, Math, and Memory.

Glissement est une œuvre qui s’interroge sur la mémoire et l’oubli par le biais d’images héritées de mon oncle Camille. Cet oncle était un organiste de talent, un photographe avide et un homme très privé. Après sa mort, ses photographies et ses diapositives ont été distribuées aux membres de la famille. J’ai reçu des images de Madrid, de Rome et de Paris, mais il y avait peu de contexte pour le matériel. On ne savait pas exactement qui peuplait toutes les images. Alors que la plupart d’entre elles avaient une qualité touristique, d’autres étaient plus personnelles. J’ai remarqué que certaines des couleurs commençaient à s’estomper. Son passé, que personne ne pouvait expliquer, disparaissait lentement. Bientôt, il ne resterait rien. J’ai commencé à superposer les images, à les doubler en espérant leur redonner une nouvelle vitalité.

Immédiatement après la projection du programme j’ai participé avec 3 autres vidéastes à une table ronde qui était centrée autour de la question « Pourquoi choisir la poésie vidéo comme moyen d’expression ». Question intéressante et d’actualité, car la vidéo-poésie est un genre de cinéma/vidéo qui a connu un regain d’intérêt au cours des dernières années. Beaucoup de nouveaux festivals, qui se spécialisent dans ce genre, sont apparus un peu partout dans le monde et il y a maintenant un réseau international d’organisations[1]. Selon Jen March, la directrice du festival, le nom Co-Kisser serait une métaphore pour exprimer l’étreinte entre les mots et les images. Une action et une liaison ; étroite et intense. Les œuvres qui ont été présentées dans le cadre de cette troisième édition étaient à l’image de cet embrassement : hybrides, pluriels et souvent expérimentales.

Je remercie artsnb pour leur aide financière qui m’a permis de me rendre à Minneapolis-St-Paul afin de prendre part aux activités du festival. J’y ai fait de belles rencontres et l’énergie, je devrais dire la synergie, continue de vibrer.

Glissement (2013)

glissement-wp

Glissement (2012) has been selected for the C-K Poetry-Film Fest – October 19, 2013, Minneapolis College of Art and Design.

Glissement – (French, English subtitles)
Year / Format Video /2012 / HD
Running time 2 min

Description
My uncle Camille was a gifted organist, an avid photographer and a very private man. When he died, his photographs and slides were distributed to family members, but nobody was able to provide any context for the material. I received one binder with images of Madrid, Rome and Paris. While most of them had a touristic quality attached to them, others were more personal.

As I looked at the images, I noticed that some of the colours were starting to fade away. His past, that nobody could explain, was slowly disappearing. Soon there would be nothing left.

I started to superimpose the images, to double them up in hopes that the memories embedded in there would gather new strength, new life.

Cafe Poet at the Blackwattle Cafe (2013)

I am very happy to announce that the Blackwattle Cafe will be hosting my cafe poet residency! It is an amazing place located directly on the Blackwattle Bay, Sydney Harbour. The house was formely known as the Bellevue.

I will be at the cafe twice a week starting on Wednesday, May 1st!

Here is the website for the project: http://dhdugas.tumblr.com/

THE SPIRIT OF THE TIME
A colour based text & image project by Daniel Dugas

The existence of colours precedes classification and human evolution on this planet. Sunsets were red and leaves were green long before their hues could be expressed in words. Colours are defined by pigmentation; a blue pigment is blue because it absorbs all of the colours except blue. Unlike pigments, words carry elements of realities but also aspects of fictions, of possible futures, as well as colour. Words are the vehicles that move the emotions, the symbols of our desires and our hopes, the emblems of our determination to face reality and trials. The names of colours are cultural reflections of certain moments in a timeline. They express the way we were, the way we are; THE SPIRIT OF THE TIME: the Zeitgeist, or the way we would like to be tomorrow.

Pantone, a corporation known for its colour systems and technology for design industries, understands this very well. In 2000, it inaugurated its Color of the Year program. This annual affair, rooted in marketing and mercantilism, has become a major influence on fashion. As a follow-up to 2011’s Honeysuckle, ‘a vibrant reddish-pink, perfect to ward off the blues’, Pantone Color Institute announced that Tangerine Tango had been selected to be the 2012 Color of the Year, ‘This spirited reddish orange, continues to provide the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward.’[1]

THE SPIRIT OF THE TIME will be a transmutation of the marketing landscape into a poetic landscape. By using commercially available color palettes as base material – swatches from Pantone, Martha Stuart, Behr, Sherwin-Williams and others – I intend to create a series of haiku-like short texts. Questions of subversion versus established social order is at the root of the project. From the collision of what is transmitted and what is received I would like to examine the fragile reality of existence in which we live. What can be said of colours with names such as Gypsy Moth, Powder Puff or Chocolate Cosmos?[2]

RESIDENCY AND EZINE
This project will be developed in the framework of a residency. I have been invited by Australian Poetry to participate in a six months residency through their Café Poet Program. This writing residency is for six months, from May 2013 to October 2013.

I have also been invited by JUICYHEADS, a New York based ezine / website, to be one of their poetry columnists. I will be contributing texts from THE SPIRIT OF THE TIME every two weeks for the duration of the residency.

WRITING PROCESS
I plan to write in one or the other of either French or English and to translate the texts to create a bilingual body of work. I envision my writing process to be divided into four steps:

1. Pick a pigment-sample from a colour palette.

2. Find an example in the city (Sydney) or the surrounding area of a colour that closely resembles the chosen pigment-sample. Take an image of the location as a mnemonic device.

3. Write a text at the Blackwattle Cafe.

4. Translate the text.

*PROGRAMME*

FLOATERS IN THE EYE (Antoinette Zwirchmayr, 3m)
The text of Paul Celan’s poem Schliere (Floaters) is printed with a Braille writing machine onto black leader, thus translating it into Braille writing. The 16mm film is actually readable to a blind person through physical touch, though projected onto the screen the writing transforms into an unidentifiable code of bright spots. These sequences are cut with sewing scenes, the sewing referencing the restrictions of (visual) language to a blind person, and perhaps also the limits of language itself.

THERE IS NO ORIGINAL (dir: Stephen Snell, Steven Chamberlain; words: Steve Coxon; sound: Ohmm, 3m51)
The film was created entirely on sticky tape.

The sticky tape is played through a specially adapted projector which creates unusual visuals. The experimental medium pioneered here lends itself to processes usually associated with montage, direct to film techniques and media specific techniques, notably “flayed paper”.

ONE MOMENT PASSES (words: Robert Lax; computer animation: Susanne Wiegner, 3m)
One Moment Passes is a meditative game of patterns with “is” and “was”; past and present. Three different time layers – the past, present and future – are put on top of each other to create the very moment of presence. The film starts and ends with a step-by-step perception: reading, hearing, seeing.

INSOMNIA (dir: Daniel Dugas, 3m)
Dictionaries hold all the words of languages and images hold all the feelings in the world.  A television show about the Big Bang theory adds to the anguish of not being able to sleep. What would happen to dreaming if time itself disappeared?

Words:

SIMON BARRACLOUGH
Simon Barraclough is the author of Los Alamos Mon Amour (Salt, 2008), Bonjour Tetris (Penned in the Margins, 2010) and Neptune Blue (Salt, 2011). He is the editor of Psycho Poetica (Sidekick Books, 2012) and co-deviser and co-author of The Debris Field (Sidekick Books, 2013).

This evening he will read “the planet suite” from Neptune Blue.

QUANTUM LOVE (dir: Laura Focarazzo; sound art: David Horner, 6m)
Inspired by quantum physics, the film explores the idea of uncertainty.

DRIFT (Mark Khalife, 5m07)
A couple lives on the other side of the world to each other and cannot be awake at the same time. The film explores dualities of time and through a circadian cycle spanning two time zones.

METAMORPHOSE DU PAPILLON (Dir: Pere Ginard and Laura Gines, 5m)
A revision / reinterpretation / rewriting of Gaston Ville’s eponymous film (1906) exploring the cycle of life through metamorphosis.

Words:

Tim Cumming
Tim Cumming was born in Solihull and was brought up in the West Country. His poetry collections include The Miniature Estate (1991), Apocalypso (1992, 1999), Contact Print (2002) and The Rumour (2004). His work has appeared in anthologies including The Forward Poems of the Decade, and Identity Parade (Bloodaxe). He made the acclaimed Hawkwind: Do Not Panic documentary for the BBC in 2007 and writes regularly for The Independent and The Guardian on music and the arts. His film poem Radio Carbon was premiered at PoetryFilm at the Renoir cinema in 2009.

This evening Tim Cumming will read new poems including Plate Tectonica, which features the mathematical algorithm as a metaphor.

THE SHELL OF THE WORLD (dir. and words: Robert Peake; music: Valerie Kampmeier, 10m39)
A sequence of 7 parts exploring patterns of belonging and alienation. Shot on iPhone and edited on a laptop.

KISSING IN HATS (dir: Stuart Pound; words: Rosemary Norman, 1m30)
The poem is a villanelle, a verse form where the regular repetition of two key lines gives added urgency to what is being said. The effect is intensified by multiple looping of the speaker’s voice as a moving path scans across four line drawings.

ANFORTAS (dir: Carolyn Radio an Alanna Simone; words: Carolyn Radio, 5m24)
The work was originally produced as a 3-channel, 3-wall installation and is being shown tonight as a single film. Anfortas is a stop-motion animation of everyday objects used to convey larger metaphysical ideas. Woven choreographies of red and white items are overlaid with a story intertwining creation myths with a knight’s quest for the transformative vessel.

MY FILM ENTRY (dir: Neil Ira Needleman, 1m50)
The director writes: “It would be too easy to write something here about “life imitating art” or “art imitating life”. But it’s much simpler than that. Here’s how I see it: the world has become a complicated place. Too complicated for me. I now seek solace, salvation and inner peace by performing tasks that are simple and pure. In a complicated and ambiguous world, it doesn’t get any simpler than this. I hope you enjoy it, because as soon as this video is over, the complications begin. Simply yours, Neil.”

Words and Sounds:

NIALL MCDEVITT (15m)
Niall McDevitt is a poet, author of b/w (Waterloo Press, 2010), literary tour guide (poetopography.wordpress.com) and poetry editor of International Times (www.internationaltimes.it).

This evening he will perform with a bodhran drum which is circular and beautifully patterned. His poems will celebrate the millennium, the drum, and the zero

Cafe Poet Program (2012)

Good news from Australia and the USA! I have been selected for the Cafe Poet Program from the Australian Poetry for a six months residency at the Marrickville Road Cafe in Sydney. My residency starts on July 1st 2012. I have also been invited by JUiCYHEADS, a New York-based ezine/website, to be one of their poetry columnists. I will be contributing texts to JUiCYHEADS from my Australian project every two weeks for the duration of the residency.

 

Here is a description of the Cafe Poet Program:
The Cafe Poet Program places poets in cafes as ‘poets in residence’ for a six month period. The poet is given space to write (maybe two or three times a week – in consultation with the cafe) as well as complimentary tea and/or coffee and in return the cafe gets to be part of this community, promotion and the opportunity to plan events with the poet enriching the cultural life of the cafe (and hopefully the number of patrons). The program began at AP in February 2009 and has been a huge success, placing more than twenty poets in cafes all over the country and receiving extensive media coverage. We have also connected cafe poets with various opportunities including working with RMIT media students and being published in the 2009 edition of Blue Dog: Australian Poetry.
