"Culture is now formed more and more on the Internet rather then in institutions such as museums, schools or even specific locations like cities or countries. In the words of Childish Gambino, we are “because the Internet.”

Current Viewing: L'Hypothese du Tableau Vole : (Hypothesis Of The Stolen Painting): Directed by Raoul Ruiz

Ruiz ’s approach to cinema, is to view films not as self-enclosed entities but as open systems evoking other films and images.Ruiz ’s approach to cinema, is to view films not as self-enclosed entities but as open systems evoking other films and images.

"Inspired by the idiosyncratic personality of author, theorist, and artist Pierre Klossowski whose densely cerebral erotic fiction was influenced by such notorious literary figures as the Marquis de Sade and the excommunicated surrealist Georges Bataille, as well as Klossowski's final novel La Baphomet, The Hypothesis of the Stolen Painting is an indelibly haunting, endlessly fascinating, and maddeningly abstruse composition on Pirandellian ambiguity and the inherent subjectivity of perspective."

Current Viewing: Ghost Dance: A 1983 Film by Ken McMullen: Featuring Jacques Derrida As Himself

"Cinema plus Psychoanalysis equals the Science of Ghosts" — Jacques Derrida"Cinema plus Psychoanalysis equals the Science of Ghosts" — Jacques Derrida

Ghost Dance, an experimental film by the British director Ken McMullen, is notable for its very leisurely pace, its occasional bizarre humor, its near-perfect opacity and the presence of two striking individuals: Jacques Derrida, the French linguistic philosopher, and Pascale Ogier, the late young actress whose doleful, mature face and mischievous manner held forth such great promise of a remarkable screen career. … Ogier and Leonie Mellinger, as the film’s two wandering heroines, appear in various bleak settings in London and Paris, while various quotations are delivered in voice-over and titles like “Myth: The Voice of Destruction, the Voice of Deliverance” divide the film into subsections.

Joseph Lally and The Avatar Of Artifice.

You're in the eye of the public and the public is looking back at you as if you are a mirror, blank and infinite.You're in the eye of the public and the public is looking back at you as if you are a mirror, blank and infinite.

Beauty is artifice, if the beauty you're talking about is cosmetic. Natural's not in it, much as it pretends to be. The post-digital usually veils this, with great sleight of hand, in the best beauty campaigns and the most seductive editorials, touting the power of the product to transform and transcend. Do we believe this anymore ? I think we do. No matter how far you take it, no matter how Brechtian your post-production gets as an image-maker, we will always want to believe that not only is the image real, but that it is also possible. That is the art of artifice, which is what 21st century fashion has become.

New York vécu and Tokyo's Future Market

By the time we surfaced out of the tunnel and eased into New York City itself, it was 3:30am. Despite ten thousand returns, the first sight of all those vertical towers jutting overhead, so high they seemed to converge, still made for a sharp intake of breath. Having grown up in a restless family, that was always in motion, New York City was the one place in which I had been most grounded, or to use a phrase I just found in a critique of A la Recherche du temps perdu ; "vegetated".

It's been almost three decades of living within New York City's scale and sprawl, drive and energy. More than any where else, it was what had shaped me. I was back for meetings and not much else, not in this my dedicated state of rootlessness, but this morning, this return had a strange tincture. Was it nostalgia?
