BANKSY’S EXIT THROUGH THE GIFTSHOP

Sunday, September 26th, 2010
Interesting post over at Out Of The Blog. Banksy’s Exit Through The Giftshop is not the Banksy documentary we all hoped it would be. Instead Britain’s most infamous street artist switches the focus of the camera to become a master of puppets rather than the subject of his own documentary, meanwhile launching a certain Mr Brainwash as a new kid on the streetart block, allowing him to cash in on the latest hype. Too much of a coincidence to have critics, celebs and buyers suckered into what I feel is Banksy’s middle finger up the bum of the entire art world. Sheer genius once again!
Watch the documentary in its entirety here:

LWE INTERVIEWS SHED, HILARITY ENSUES

Sunday, September 26th, 2010

Little White Earbuds conducted this interesting Q&A with Shed. Very outspoken and opinionated, he sheds a light on the current state of club music and techno in particular, and states his dismay for the Berghain crew’s international endeavors. Something tells me he won’t be playing Sub:Stance any time soon, haha! If you like no- nonsense interviews, this one’s for you:

JOHN HOPKINS – VESSEL (FOUR TET REMIX) VIDEO BY BISON

Beautifully synched music video directed by Bison!

BISON: “We’d been looking into an old 3D technique called “Anaglyph”, which is the familiar red and cyan version of 3d that you used to get on the back of cereal boxes. The more we looked at various images that used this technique, the more we fell in love with the colours and decided that they should drive the aesthetic of the piece. In particular, we were intrigued as to what might happen if the two images were from drastically different sources.

“The song is full of light and shade; with euphoric melodies and skipping glitchy beats. It seemed to us that themes of ‘duality’ ran through both the song and our visual idea.

“We took those themes to our stylist, Justine Josephs who, along with our make-up artist Sally Marshall, created two opposing looks for our dancer, Claire Meehan. We spent a single day shooting in a South East London studio with Chris Nunn behind the camera and lights.

“Finally came the edit and post-production process: We locked ourselves in the studio for 2 weeks working with After Effects.
The process was pretty organic; we spent a week or so playing with the footage, developing different ideas and techniques, and then spent a further week moulding the disparate pieces into a solid video that ebbed and flowed in the right places.”
