EyeThoughtWalk - visual note for a lost manuscript
The jumping-off point of the video artwork is a collaboration between painter Dorte Dahlin and videoartist Joachim Hamou. It is based on their 6 short and sampled anecdotes/poems relating to experiences of Revelation, the Arab World, Lost Distance, Speed, Chinese painting, Rubber-geometry i.e.
The stories are recorded in English by Indian and Afro American actors, so the stories will be experienced as ”Global Travelling Stories”, being transformed by local circumstances such as nationality, gender, age, accent, space, vocal pitch etc.
Presenting the videonote supports the idea of an open source collaboration between people/artists of different faculties, cultural and civil backgrounds - when meeting on cultural, social and political (environmental) issues, using art as a non-imperialistic/democratic tool of action.
The videonote exemplifies the working strategy of Nomad Academy.
