Nothing/Moving: A Multicellular Organigram (2005) DVD NTSC, color, 35 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Art & Artists

NOTHING/MOVING was created for the exhibition of Jonas Mekas: Fragments of Paradise at the Maya Stendhal Gallery, NYC, as a single monitor multichannel installation based on Jonas Mekas’ epic film "As I was Moving Ahead Occasionally I saw Brief Glimpses of Beauty," 16mm, 2000. Diary footage of twenty-five years of living in SoHo, New York City, and spontaneous voice-over commentary are used as raw material, along with fragments of soundtrack from Louie Malle’s Zazie dans le Metro, which I first saw at Mekas’ Anthology in SoHo in 1976, and exotic bird calls forming a visual/aural poem homage to Jonas Mekas.. --N.
