Cerveira



Until the 9/11 incidents, the year 2001 is in Wilfried’s life unusually active. Driven by the desire to conquer art as his personal life expression again, he is looking for chances where they are offering them to him. On 18 August he is present with his interactive art works on two prestgious events – Bienal de Cerveira 2001, focussed in that year on art & technology, and in 2002 in FILE – Electronic Language Festival Sao Paulo. While at Cerveira Biennale, Wilfried prepared a special digital art composition of works – called – Agricola Lighthome – including three Flash based audio-visual works and a collection auf visual/textual poetry – the participating artists were asked to name their contributions like that, Wilfried is showing in Sao Paulo two of his latest interactive Works ]and_scape[ and the other one “Mirror at the Bottom – artists portraying themselves” – created in Flash – the multi-media software, including 154 artists and their audio-visual self-portaits, many of them were created in technologies which are nowadays not supported any longer, so also this wonderful work is consisting partially of dead links. It is the destiny of most of the art works created in the early years of the new millenium, they are even dead or threatened with extinct.
So, the readers of the articles are encouraged to take the chance to view these type of works, as long as Flash is still supported (31. December 2020).

“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.

View the work

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.

*and_scape

]and-scape[, 2002, interactive

“]and_scape[”

Synopsis
Interactive moving picture created in Flash by media artist Agricola de Cologne
inspired by poetic texts of Liubov Sirota, an Ukrainian Tchernobyl survivor.

The work is telling something about landscapes
imaginary landscapes, flourishing landscapes
landscapes of illusion, landscape of hope, landscape of innocence
landscapes of being home, landscapes of unscathed genetics
landscape of giving home to all beings of the Creation.
Are there any landscapes any longer, did not they dry out, blasted, shrinked to minimalism through the will for destruction, the bombs over Hiroshima, Chernobyl the completely mined enviroment which leaves no air to breath, the mountains of garbage collapsing……………..
who will remember all those little children
who will be born again and again
who will never get any chance to survive.
We will remember,
we will reconstruct forgotten landscapes
But will we succeed?

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.
