Urban.early sunday morning_raw
was originally created in Flash – non-linear – in times when streaming video did not exist yet. The media technology using very light files was allowing online streaming even by using low K modems. Originally developed by MACROMEDIA and later owned by ADOBE, Flash software, like earlier before Shockwave, is not longer supported and in this way the original file is no longer available online, but on demand the Flash version can be exhibited and viewed offline.
However already in 2007, a linear video version nowdays available for screening in mp4 is replacing the original version in Flash, see streaming video above.

Agricola’s Light Home – Identity of Colour”

video

“Identity of Colour”, 07:07:07, 2016

Film created by media artist Agricola de Cologne, based on the artist’s poem and voice performance of the same name created and executed in 2001.
The work combines DaDa like poetic texts, vector grafics and musical components created by the artist himself.

There are two work versions:

1. The netart piece, 2001, looping
developed according the principle of SAMAC
(Simultaneous Associative Media Art Composing) which describes Agricola’s individual way of experimental electronic writing: words, sound, images, animation, music and voice performance are developed simultaneously –depending on each other – in one long single process.

Voice and sound performance by Agricola de Cologne.

2. the video, 2016, 07.07.07
voice and sound performance by Wilfried Agricola de Cologne
The video is representing a reconstruction of the piece originally programmed in Flash (Macromedia) as netart which ist still existing as a completed netart work, however due to a specific, non-linear programming which could not be transferred to the linear structure of the video a complete reconstruction was necessary. Therefore the video is standing as an art work individually for itself.

Agricola’s Light Home – Watch: Seconds Forever



Watch – Seconds Forever, 2001, 3:20

Surveillance can become an obsession for those who observe and those who are observed. For the victim captured and tortured, seconds are never ending.

Synopsis
Transience is an interactive, experimental Flash composition based on different text, sound and music components created by Agricola de Cologne.

Both the creator and user are or become composers of sensual perceptions on different levels. Confronted with essential questions of human destination and while acting through the artistic environment the user starts creating a virtual sculpture consisting of images, associations and processes on different levels.

The work is developed according the principle of SAMAC
(Simultaneous Associative Media Art Composing) which describes Agricola’s individual way of experimental electronic writing: words, sound, images, animation, music and voice performance are developed simultaneously –depending on each other – in one long single process.

Voice and sound performance by Agricola de Cologne. The movie is developed in Flash, directed and produced by Agricola de Cologne.
Credits: Director, producer, editor, script/concept, cinematography, programming: Agricola de Cologne
