Retro Torrance

During April

Torrance Art Museum Los Angeles was hosting in 2014, 2016 and 2016 the extended videoart screening programs Agricola de Cologne was curating for CologneOFF, artvideoKOELN and The W:OW Project, and confirmed this way the quality of the audio-visual works and programs, as well as the trustful transatlantic collaboration.

Since Torrance Art Museum will be closed during April 2020 due to the Corona crisis and in April the 4th collaboration with Torrance Art Museum was scheduled – NewMediaFest2020 would like to open a virtual version of the museum’s darkroom by presenting the screening programs of the previous three collaborations in 2014, 2016 and 2018

Torrance Art Museum


The Museum encourages all people to develop and increase their understanding and appreciation for modern and contemporary artwork via a variety of exhibitions offered in its two gallery spaces, as well as educational programs, artist talks, lectures, and symposia.

Through its emphasis on contemporary artistic expression in Southern California and globally, the Torrance Art Museum brings together visual artists and community members; fosters personal and civic well being by inspiring understanding and appreciation of the visual arts; promotes meaningful experiences in the arts to strengthen creative and critical thinking skills; and builds bridges between the visual arts and other disciplines in the humanities and sciences.

    the solo feature of Albert Merino
    As the director and curator of Cologne International Videoart Festival, Agricola de Cologne had to review up to 1500 submissions for preparing the next festival edition. Even if a team of different curators would review seriously, reviewing and selecting videos & films is representing an enormous logistic & conceptual challenge. When artists like Albert Merino were submitting the selection procedure can always be abbreviated, because since the 1st submission in 2010 each of the submitted films have not just an equal, but an increasing quality – that’s why they stand out from all others. Each new work is a new surprise.
    Although Agricola de Cologne was enthusiastic from the beginning, the number of filmic works following each other made it evident, this artist has an enormous creative potential going far beyond the knowledge how to use audio-visual effects – the transformation of dreamlike, surreal ideas into a language of moving images that really matter, made it easy for Agricola de Cologne to accept each submitted high standard work. Awarding Albert Merino as videoartist of the month April 2020 is a view back by honouring 10 years of imaginative film making which was always giving the promis that the abundance of creativity and imagination would generate also in Future more of such astonishing filmic works. Being confronted with the artist’s films and the way of practised collaboration was always a great pleasure!

    Solo feature of the month April 2020 – Jody Zellen

    Recipient of JAYA’01 – The JavaArtist of the Year 2001 Award
    Jody Zellen was one of the first artists, Wilfried Agricola de Cologne was meeting virtually after he launched his Internet based activities as an artist and curator. Jody’s Internet based work which was already quite comprehensive in the year 2000, belong to the first external netart works, Agricola de Cologne was confronted with before Jody was following his first calls for netart in 2000. At the same time, on which platforms his own net based works were accepted for participating, nearly always Jody Zellen was participating at least with one of her works, as well.
    It was the quality of her work which impressed him from the beginning, her works were inviting to visit the project sites not just once, but many times and all her works have the same level of quality, this is generally something unsual. So, while Agricola de Cologne was preparing his shows on JavaMuseum, but Jody participated on other of his platforms, as well, as soon as there was the decision made to give “The JavaArtist of the Year Award” for the first time, it was clear, that Jody’s work had to be honoured with the 1st Award 2001, and she was the only artist who had even two solo features afterwards.
    When Agricola de Cologne was preparing NewMediaFest 2020 during the year 2019, and he checked how many netart works would be still online after so many years, he was surprised that the majority of works involved in the previous JavaMuseum shows had either simply vanished leaving just dead links, mostly together with the artists themselves, but it was no surprise, that Jody’s works were not only existing and located online under the same URL, but her entire works was perfectly documented, and then while reviewing her works after so many years again, he found them nearly as exciting as he had reviewed them for the 1st time. Despite they are technology based like any good art work they are timeless, and that’s certainly the best compliment which can be made to an artist, that his work isn’t just fashionable for a limited period of time.

    Ghost City

    Enter the work here

    Ghost City is an ever changing website. It is a virtual city that has become an archive of changing web technologies. Ghost city has no physical space or real time beyond the space and time of the viewer’s interaction with the screen. Ghost City focuses on the representation of the city by the mass media. It uses the space of the web as a sculptural space, allowing viewers to interact with animated graphics to delve deeper and deeper into an imaginary city

    Visual Chaos

    Enter the work here

    On space, time, and human interaction. I am interested in the patterns, structure and design of the urban environment. Rather than document the cities I see, I use representations of a wide range of contemporary and historic cities from the media as raw material for aesthetic and social explorations. Using these appropriated images and texts I make individual photo collages, multi-media installations, public artworks, artist’s books, and web art projects. The different media in which I work feed off of and inform each other. For the last ten years I have been making my art work while working simultaneously as a designer, printer, or gallery assistant.
    Random Paths

    Enter the work here

    Random Paths is a self contained project that functions as a travelogue. It is about sequence and memory and how different groupings of images and passages of poetic texts can create different associations. Random Paths is meant to be circular and hopefully upon each viewing new meanings will be generated.

    Crowds and Power

    Enter the work here

    Crowds and Power uses mediated images to explore the relationship between space, memory, and territory. Windows containing image fragments emphasize the displacement of individuals and the transformation of urban space where large gatherings, demonstrations, and struggles are represented. By juxtaposing charged images with theoretical and philosphical texts about the nature of crowds this website explores internal and external conflicts.

    Disembodied Voices is a meditation on the nature of public space. It is a visual representation of how different bodies communicate across space, using cell phones as a metaphor for the new translocal of connected, yet disembodied voices, linked across space invisibly – forming an unseen network of wanderers, always within reach yet nowhere in sight. This site illustrates the collision of the personal/private and public space. As the line between public and private continues to blur intimate transactions have become audible to anyone within earshot. Where we are, in a sense, no longer matters since we are always connected. Using the cell phone as a metaphor, this project connects users and investigates the changing nature of public space into a wirelessly connected translocal, where each person is a node in the network.

    This work evokes my very first net art project, Le voyage imaginaire, made with Java voxel applet, where mouse motions were leading the viewer into the morphing landscape. Many years later, with Web GL, we are travelling again through web page into pink territories which are gliding, eluding and disappearing in front of us, while female voice is reminding us that we are between the worlds.

    Don Quixote is a palpable example of how far a meme can go with the proper institutional help. The celebration of the year Quixote coincides with the release of a series of memes that circulated on the network, although they did not yet enjoy the interest of the media. We refer to concepts such as copyleft, creative commons, appropriationism, piracy and their application to digital art. It did not seem bad to us, therefore, to reunite this memetic coincidence in an artistic project.
    – X Reloaded offers “interpretations” of a fragment of Don Quixote according to authors as disparate – and usually to our liking – as JODI, Olia Lialina, Barbara Kruger, William Burroughs, El Lissitzki, Tony Scott or Ferran Adrià. Apart from the game “as if”, X Reloaded is above all a tribute to the remix culture and appropriationism that seems to us an essential characteristic of good digital art.
    Practically all the pieces that we have remediated were based on the concept of the remix culture. Barbara Kruger has almost always worked with someone else’s photographs and has faced some lawsuit for copyright misappropriation. The JODI map was already the re-appropriation of a map of the Internet backbone. William Burroughs’ own creative mechanism was based precisely on copying by remixing the texts of others. The hard core of Adbusters’ ideology is culture jamming, by which the icons of consumerism are decontextualized to denounce it. Even a more mainstream character like Ferran Adrià bases part of his success on the idea of ​​”deconstructing” traditional recipes.
    X Reloaded is a project open to collaborations. Many artists have stayed in the pipeline: How about a Jamie Reid God Save the X? Or apply Eulipo’s mechanisms to the selected text? We appreciate the collaborations of Rosa Llop, Xavier Lorente and Ana Sánchez and we invite you to re-appropriate your favorite artist -or the most hated- under the influence of omnipresent X.

    Ardnamurchan Zillij

    Enter the work

    An interactive moving mosaic for the web.
    Between July and September 2004 Simon Fildes was New Dynamics Artist in Residence in the dispersed communities of Ardnamurchan as part of the Scottish Arts Council supported programme for Social Inclusion Partnership Communities. This was a part-time role to develop new ‘new media’ work with young people. Whilst staying there the award-winning video-maker Katrina McPherson worked along side Simon to create a new work for Alt-W called ‘Ardnamurchan Zillij’.
    The artists created a collaborative work with individuals from the geographically diverse groups in Ardnamurchan . They built up a bank of over 130 digital tiles based on looping moving images. The interface allows a user to select tiles and design a constantly moving colourful mosaic of small video clips. The video clips were created by designing, choreographing and videoing the movement of individuals in the communities of Ardnamurchan and the environment around them, and reducing the clips to near abstract shapes and sounds .
    The idea to create an interactive moving digital mosaic was inspired by the artists fascination with Islamic Moroccan tradition which relies on geometry and endless repetition as an outlet for expression using shapes called fourmah to create intricate patterns, Zillij. Katrina and Simon were interested in exploring some interesting cultural parallels in this non representational form of art with the west coast of Scotland.

    Simon and Katrina
    would like to thank Eugene Rainey for his ActionScript programming and all the people of Acharacle, Glenuig, Strontian and Kilchoan (young and old) who got involved with us along the way and who’s presence was invaluable to the process. We would particularly like to thank Calum Carmichael not least for his video contribution but also for being an able and willing assistant throughtout the three months we were resident in Glenuig. Many many thanks are also due to the support crew – Dot Lynas, Ali Macdonald, Peter MacFarlane, Moira Fitzpatrick, Anne-Marie Clegg, Sheena Carmichael, Siobhan Gilespie, Peter Stace, Eoghan Carmichael, Alasdair “Pod” Carmichael, Sue Cheadle, and Nick Ashcroft, without who’s support there would have been no project. Thanks very mush to iain MacDonald and family for the use of the house at Seannlag, Glenuig, we loved it there.
    The New Dynamics project has been supported by the Community Learning and Leisure Service of the Highland Council and has invested in good quality equipment with the support of Lochaber Enterprise and the Tudor Trust. Ardnamurchan Zillij recieved significant additional support from Alt-W, an annual scheme to fund innovative arts projects for the web.

    Poetic Dialogues 1.0

    Enter the work here

    “Poetic Dialogues 1.0 is constituted by 18 different flash movies made with a high-tech wristwatch camera. Each flash movie has a sequence of images taken frame by frame of people reciting a verse that I previously wrote. So, even when I employed a sophisticated machine to do this work, the process was the same that was used at the begining of cinema. When you enter the project you will see 3 different faces that establish a dialogue between them. The interaction among the characters generates a poem. Also, the number of different poems/combinations that you can
    get is 216. This metaphorical process of using a watch to create dynamic poems was taken from a previous work called ‘the poetic clock’, a machine that converts time into poetry which generates 86.400 different poems daily. “

    To mark Talking Birds’ 10th birthday in 2002, we made 10 new artworks and on top of that a little interactive web-thing each month. Hands up if you still have a Channel-hopping fly or a printed desk calendar? You can still play with Helloland, but do bear in mind that it is 10 years old and you may (just may) find a broken link or two…clicky here.

    Talking Birds

    soundLAB I

    was released as SoundLAB Channel in the context of The RRF Project on occasion of – BEAP – Biennale of electronic Art Perth /Australia 2004. Sonic art as tool for dealing with the complex aspect of memory, its repressing and the forgetting. The particular feature was to include the external curators Zoe Drayton (New Zealand), Tobias Van Veen (Canada), John Kannenberg (USA), Eva Sjuve (Norway), Juan Antonio Lleó (Spain) – who provided their individual selection of sonic art works.
    After BEAP, soundLAB Channel remained until the end of The RRF Project 2007 as its corporate part, but was also acting as an individual platform for sonic art. Including soundLAB I, each of the following 6 years, soundLAB was releasing on large sonic art project. 2016 soundLAB was re-activated in order to realize some new soundart project under specific topics.
