Filmtipp: “The Institute”

Doku über das “Jejune Institute” von Jeff Hull in San Francisco: “Their mission is to provoke discovery through visceral experience and pervasive play. As creators of the Jejune Institute, an award-winning immersive narrative experience, Nonchalance was successfully able to re-engineer the way audiences interact with media, the space around them, and each other. Utilizing automated environments, pirate radio broadcasts, guerilla masonry, and lock boxes within lock boxes, Hull’s work represents a warp zone that transports audiences between hyper realized fantasy worlds. Previously as a street artist with an ambition to infuse more variability and play into the civic realm, Jeff created Oaklandish; a decade-strong community arts organization with 20 consecutive “Best of the East Bay” Awards to it’s credit. He is also the founder of inner city playground activities such as the Urban Capture the Flag League, the Lake Merritt Radio Regatta, and the Liberation Drive-In which spawned an international movement of rogue parking lot movie screenings.” Via: Laurence, merci!

Mark Reigelman: “Manifest Destiny”

“Manifest Destiny! is about our God-given imperative as modern explorers, to seek out parcels of unclaimed territory and boldly establish a new home front in the remaining urban voids of San Francisco. Manifest Destiny! is a temporary rustic cabin occupying one of the last remaining unclaimed spaces of downtown San Francisco – above and between other properties. The cabin is affixed to the side of the Hotel des Arts, floating above the restaurant Le Central like an anomalous outgrowth of the contemporary streetscape. Using a 19th-century architectural style and vintage building materials, the structure is both homage to the romantic spirit of the Western Myth and a commentary on the arrogance of Westward expansion. The interior space of the tiny house can be seen day and night through the curtained windows, a lonely beacon in the city’s dense landscape, and an incongruous, haunting vision from below. The installation will remain in place and be slowly transformed by the elements through October 2012.”

“Blue Birds”

“Stair Squares”

Mark Reigelman, Künstler/Designer aus New York. “Manifest Destiny!” erinnert an das “Rucksackhaus” von Stefan Eberstadt bzw. den “Parasiten” von Korteknie Stuhlmacher Architecten, trotzdem wunderbar. Via
