Lucida

Lucida is an autonomous image-making machine that creates analogue images in real-time, without generating a permanent record. The images defy classification as digital photographs, radiological scans or three-dimensional computer graphics but allude to all three and are believable as scientific images, while existing exclusively as an artwork.

Tarkovsky’s Instant Light Polaroids

A beautiful, elegiac collection of sixty polaroid photographs by the late, great Soviet film director, Andrey Tarkovsky. Composed of sixty luminous polaroids taken by Andrey Tarkovsky in Russia and Italy between 1979 and 1984, Instant Light Tarkovsky Polaroids is a beautifully produced series of cameos from the director’s life, revealing him to be a master of the still as much as of the moving image.

Art of the Brain

Halfway through his PhD program in neuroscience at UPenn, Greg Dunn was inspired to try a new experiment: using the brain structures he was seeing in the lab as the subject matter for his minimalist Asian-inspired paintings. When he finished his Ph.D, he bought himself a sensory deprivation tank as a graduation present. The gift marked a major life transition, from the world of science to a life of meditation and art.

Andy Warhol’s Outer and Inner Space

Shot in August 1965, ‘Outer and Inner Space’ is Andy Warhol’s first double-screen film and an important transitional work, since the double-screen format was very important in his later cinema. First exhibited by Warhol at the Filmmakers Cinematheque in New York City in January 1966, it was screened on only a few other occasions in the 1960s. Outer and Inner Space had not been seen in over 30 years until it was restored by The Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1998 and premiered as an installation at the Whitney Museum of American Art in October 1998.

The Space Between

Marc Yankus is a photographer and an artist who uses digital mediums to create mixed media. His fine art and publishing experience span a period of more than thirty years. His latest photographs are the hyperreal “building portraits” shown in his most recent solo exhibition at ClampArt, ‘The Space Between’. In this series, select historical buildings are portrayed in altered cityscapes and invented spaces that evoke the experience of memory, imagination and dream states playing out in a magical place.

The Radical Film Network: for a sustainable, oppositional film culture

Political film culture in Britain and elsewhere has expanded dramatically in recent years as access to digital technologies have meshed with socio-political, economic and environmental contexts marked by crisis and discontent. Co-founder of the Bristol Radical Film Festival in 2011 and the Radical Film Network in 2013, Steve Presence discusses the relationship between film, politics and the avant-garde.
