Randal Packer - Orf Comes to Washington to Bear Witness
Orf (from the legend of Orpheus) pays visit to Washington where he carries out a spectacular vigil to bear witness in extraordinary times of crisis. Orf is a poet-troubadour who resides in the shadowy depths of the Other World. In his visit to Washington, he sings negro spirituals in juxtaposition to his movement through the iconic environment of the Nation’s Capital. In this excerpt, Orf engages the speed and power of the aircraft, a weapon of mass destruction in the 21st century, singing “swing low, sweet chariot coming for to carry me home” evoking the extremist allure of the afterlife.Video Art @ [PAM] :: on-line streaming video art

Cecille Dahl: Clothes for a Summer Hotel
A beautiful young girl models various clothes made of fruits and berry’s. Things heat up as the juices flow. Feminist, body art, Venereal (as in Venus and blood) and perhaps barely legal, we’re almost certain this piece will shock a few people.

Nick and Sheila Pye: The Paper Wall
Perhaps one of the most hauntingly beautiful and stunningly conceptual pieces submitted to [PAM]. “The Paper Wall” is one of our favorite videos. Shot beautifully using 16mm fil this short piece is loaded with heavy symbolism yet subtle enough to give the impressions of a delicately crafted story.
“The Paper Wall” is described by the Toronto based Pye’s as :
“Boxed into twin rooms separated by a thin wall, a brother and sister communicate their desires. Stunning, provocative, and perplexing, the pair is irresistible to watch as they become increasingly physically and emotionally dependent on one another.”

Hackworth Ashley : Demon Hutch
Oh, The Many Triumphs of Hackworth Ashley !
Better than Bill Cosby’s schlong which made it’s appearance at Scope Hamptons 2006, this video is everything Nam Jun Paik’s Global Grove should have been. Merce Cunningham can’t hold a candle to the demon dance performed by Hackworth himself ? Zany, evil, and fun, we hope you enjoy this as much as we do.

Janet Biggs: chamblee
Chamblee presents three pair of high school wrestlers, locked in a dance of aggression. The sound track combines acid jazz with audio samples from Hollywood sports films. Prototypical coaches encourage and berate the athletes.
Chamblee examines constructions of gender enacted by adolescents who mimic and internalize expectations of masculinity engendered by sports.

Peer Bode: Memory Song
“Memory Song” is a steam of thought poem that evokes both fond and bitter memories of places and times akin to the Wurlitzer Organ factory in North Tonawanda, NY. Beautifully haunting and pure analog in modality we think the bell is a wonderful symbol. We always enjoy seeing work from Peer and couldn’t agree him more when he says “I work the new video media power using the materials of signals and coded forms and silent forms. Electronics is world people, fluid semiotics, resonant beauty, new inner and outer world spaces, independent and personal making. Working in new media forms is to experience and adventure the birth of new arts, new world bodies, filled with wonders and pains, being present to life’s vulnerabilities and richness.”Peer Bode @ Alfred University :: Link to Peer's home page at Alfred University

Christina McPhee : Relay
Digital video, electronic music and sound remix
RELAY explodes video and voice in the downtown alleys of LA. RELAY sublates voice and keyboard electronica from naxsmash.net with sound design by Sariah Storm. RELAY, shot on Los Angeles Street, just down from the closed cathedral, Santa Vibiana, past the defunct Japanese erotic cinema, opens onto an alley where a film crew shoots a confrontation. Cut to a club in Chicago where a solo figure draws against scrims of light to an indifferent crowd. Violent attractors—between ‘shut down’ and ‘shut up’.
Special thanks to Terry Hargrave, Sariah Storm, and Jon Cates

Christopher Coleman: Modern Times
The original movie, “Modern Times,” featured Charlie Chaplin struggling to deal with man’s relationship to technology in the Industrial Age. We have now moved into the Age of Information in which our connection to the world around us is not only defined by technology, but the information it does or does not provide.
This video examines the issues we cope with regularly such as racism, surveillance, and apathy by using imagery from specific safety brochures. These pamphlets about terrorism readiness, provided by the Department of Homeland Security, are part of a larger system designed to promote meta-fears like terrorism that serve to distract people from their everyday concerns. This animation discusses the effects of fear, apathy, and isolation, and how they are transmitted and utilized for control. The iconography seen in this video is used in very polar situations: often we see warnings with simplified bodies being harmed as a consequence of not following the rules. These illustrations evoke fear without being real or graphic. In contrast, the same simplified pictures in airplane brochures show a complete lack of alarm and are used to make one feel safe and to reduce fear and anxiety.
In this animation, the flat, sterile and unemotional style mirrors the ways in which we increasingly react to the world around us. Sensation and overabundance bring apathy. People and the body become commodities. The individual continues to recede into the white noise.

G.H. Hovagimyan: rich_sucker_web
Done in 1978. Originally shown at MoMA as part of a group tape by Davidson Gigliotti called “Chant Acapella.” During the opening several patrons demanded the piece be removed because it was offensive. This video is totally punk when punk was really punk. Way to stick it to them G.H. !
