Seances - It's your one chance to see this film by soundsituation in Art

[–]soundsituation[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Seances, co-created with the National Film Board of Canada, presents a wholly new way of experiencing film narrative. By dynamically generating a series of film sequences in unique configurations, potentially hundreds of thousands of new stories are conjured by code. Each will exist only in the moment—no pausing, scrubbing, or sharing—offering the audience one chance to see the generated film. This project, co-created by the ever imaginative Guy Maddin, is a visual discourse on the impact of loss within film. All the sequences pay homage to lost silent films from the early day of cinema. Seances is nostalgic but it is also frequently hilarious. Part of the joy and sadness of Seances is that many possible narratives are created but they can be only viewed once before they disappear forever.

You literally had a violent revenge fantasy of kidnapping in your first comment, and you're saying that's not hateful? Really?

It's not exactly an uncommon feeling on the left. I don't know why you bother to deny it when so many are quite open about their racial hate. "The critical social justice meta-narrative holds that western societies are nothing but tyrannical social organizations, which benefit only one group of people by virtue of a powerful discourse that has over-valued certain immutable phenotypic characteristics of human beings."

All those reconstructions of “how classical art would have looked with the original paint” are probably inaccurate. There is no reason to think the Greeks and Romans used garish technicolor hues on their statues; they were good at shading, and the statues were probably colored very tastefully. by Chipit in Art

[–]jet199 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

The only thing I'd say is that there's too much block colour.

We know from places like Pompeii and the Golden House that the ancients definitely did use shading, layers of colour as well as highlights and intricate details painted on top of the base colour.

People in the neolithic and bronze age Europe very much had the capability to make life like art but chose not to for some reason. Possibly religious taboos or just mass production of cheap crap.

Almost all the skills associated with painting, pottery, sculpture were discovered and practiced to perfection 30k+ years ago. Everything has been done once, if not a million times, a long time ago so then people have to try to do something different even if it isn't as good.

[–]outra_pessoa[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Hi!

If you liked this post then take a look at my Instagram, every day I post artwork by a different artist there.

The painting depicts an elderly man in traditional Ottoman religious costume: a long red garment with embroidered hem, belted at the waist, and a Turkish turban. The figure may be a self-portrait of Hamdi himself. The anachronistic costume predates the introduction of the fez and the spread of Western style dress with the Tanzimat reforms in the mid-19th century. He holds a traditional ney flute and bears a nakkare drum on his back, with a drumstick handing to his front. The man's costume and instruments suggests he may be a Dervish.

The scene is set in a dilapidated upper room at the Green Mosque, Bursa, where the man is attempting to "train" the five tortoises at his feet, but they are ignoring him preferring instead to eat the green leaves on the floor. Above a pointed window is the inscription: "Şifa'al-kulûp lika'al Mahbub" ("The healing of the hearts is meeting with the beloved").

Hamdi's painting of an anachronistic historical character attempting to train tortoises is usually interpreted as a satire on the slow and ineffective attempts at reforming the Ottoman Empire.

Have a great day!

Dragoons originally were a class of mounted infantry, who used horses for mobility, but dismounted to fight on foot. From the early 17th century onward, dragoons were increasingly also employed as conventional cavalry and trained for combat with swords and firearms from horseback. While their use goes back to the late 16th century, dragoon regiments were established in most European armies during the 17th and early 18th centuries; they provided greater mobility than regular infantry but were far less expensive than cavalry.

I almost bought some but the shipping costs are as expensive as the bottle itself. :(

On later trips I got to know the staff there and they liked to joke around a bit. Still I often wondered if the dose was a mistake but I enjoyed it and the confusion lasted less than a minute. I will check out that link. [I'm getting out the credit card. Buy now. Thanks.]

That's the way we have to go but to most people, it sounds insane. In the country I'm in now, legalization is unlikely anytime soon. These workaholics need time away from the stress of a strong work ethic. I usually get out of the country at least twice a year but right now that's impossible so getting a bit antsy over here. Good talking with you.

We don't have real absinthe in North America unfortunately

Unless you make it (or know someone who does at Burning Man).

You don't get to pick and choose which memories.

You're also not innocent of all the shit you can't remember from the night before.

It's fun, if you can remember. The grey area between sober and plastered is MUCH thinner.

I'm suspecting that in ye days of olde, like in the painting, they only did one or two shots rather than make a night of it.

Legalize everything, save tax dollars from not enforcing drug laws and use that money towards treatment programs for those that need it. Legal and regulated drugs will be safer and of better quality. Here's to being dazed and confused. Cheers!

We don't have real absinthe in North America unfortunately; the hallucinogenic compound is removed. The one you had sounds quite potent. It seems like the waiters had experience with passed out customers. Might be the perfect drink after a hard day of thankless cubicle dwelling and toiling and you need to forget who you are. Not something I'd drink regularly but I should try it at least once. Found an online retailer! From the reviews: "Does the projectile vomiting scene in The Exorcist give you the warm fuzzies? Do you want to spend hours of your evening hallucinating that a purse is a very small, judgmental dog? Do you want to damage your romantic relationships with a string of texts that sound like they were written by Van Gogh's missing ear?".

Photos of me on absinthe at Burning Man never look calm and collected like that. Absinthe can get folks real sloppy real fast. And it's good at wiping out memories.

Hi!

During the council of Nicea the bishop of Smyrna, St. Nicholas, had an altercation with the heretic Arius who denied the divinity of Christ. In the heat of the moment, Nicholas slapped the heretic in the face. Many centuries later St. Nicholas would also be very famous in the west when he became the main source for the legendary character Santa Claus.

Have a great day!

I think Modigliani was a manic-depressive from extensive cocaina use and eventually jumped in the river. And on and on. I think, like William Burroughs said so long ago, all substances should be legalized as you probably do also. Would the OD rate go up. I doubt it, especially if everything were pure and not cut with that Chinese shit. Cheers and here's to getting out of the mind zone, temporarily anyway.

I've told this one before but what the heck: The first time I went to Cambodia I arrived strung out from flights and changes and found a sort of upmarket place for a meal. They had Absinthe Cocktail on the menu and I drank one quickly and ordered another. There was maybe one customer besides me and I dozed off. After a while one of the waiters came over and gently woke me. How long was I asleep? About two hours, sir. Where am I? By the river, sir. In Bangkok? Oh, no, Phnom Penh, sir. —— Now I have been messed up in a lot of places but that was the only time I didn't know what city and country I was in. — Maybe you know but you can buy it online. The stuff that eats your brain, wormwood, no longer eats your brain but it really has a different kind of effect from regular alcohol. Enjoy but do not drive on that stuff. Cheers.
