RIAtoo (2016) Digital File, color, 2 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Arts & Artists, Children & Youth, Philosophical, Structural

RIAtoo probes the hidden psychic effects of binaural beats and Super 8mm footage of barefoot water skiing in Michigan. "Walking on water wasn't built in a day" - Jack Kerouac. Delve deep into the reel motives and consequences of the Ludovico treatment from A Clockwork Orange, which originated in the novel by Anthony Burgess, who was influenced by James Joyce's Finnegans Wake. The Wake (of the boat?) turns the eye into an ear. Will Erokan & Gerry Fialka's Resonant Interval Algorhythms re-imagine the sensory simultaneity of integral awareness (IA being the flip of AI - artificial intelligence) in passing through the vanishing point when seeing oneself both as oneself and as the other. Is it the sex, death and technology of phantasmagoRIA? Warning: strobe effects.

Barbara Rosenthal Describes Her Eyebrows (with Mitch Corber) (2016) DVD NTSC, Color, 02:33;09 min

Genre: Documentary, Experimental

Keywords: arts & artists, biography & autobiography, body, comedy, pesonal diary journal

In another of her absurdist identity conceptual-performance videos, Barbara Rosenthal is challenged by NY videographer/poet Mitch Corber during casual descriptive wordplay conversation in his studio, to describe her own eyebrows without looking in the mirror. Because there was an unnamed, anonymous individual sitting next to her during the shoot, Rosenthal edited the piece to exclude his image and other distractions, resulting in yet another of Rosenthal's unique uses of the video-screen surface.

Autoretrat: TEXTures d'un camí (self-portrait: TEXTures of a path) (2016) Digital File, color, 7 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: biography & autobiography, personal/diary/journal

(self-portrait: TEXTures of a path) Who am I? Am I anymore that a collective portrait of all the glances I have received? I am all the words that you have said about me? Am I your hatred when you look at me and condemn me to abyss? Am I your love when you look at me and you give me heaven? I am in your eyes. I am in all eyes and I am not in any I am what your eyes want to see That is why I walk, I walk, I walk I walk to uproot the feet of false beliefs, to move the thought, and for the truth to fall by its own weight. To return the body as the only truth, To hear the beat of my heart as the only horizon. Who I am ?, I know now that I am the one who walks. I walk to be able to walk, to be able to be. And share the experience of my eyes, the "texture of a WAY" with you. Since now I know it would be nothing without you. After 18 moves (post burned my house) I arrive to Les Fonts (Barcelona) where my mother was born. The emotional impact and the sensations invaded all my skin. There is so much density in the Pandora's moving boxes of my voluntary and involuntary memories that can not defragment my hard drive now for constructing an intelligible and linear narrative about my self. "TEXTures of a path" was established as a few small democratic "units of meaning" made from text and audio notes that I have been doing, over more than a year, during my walks to Les Fonts, and something of some box ... Where the images and texts are superimposed to weave a visual texture that lead to the view the experiences and inner-feelings, to "feel" the skin eye audio- visuals.

Autoretrat: Tempest a "Les Fonts" d'una memoria (Storm in "the Sources" of a Memory) (2016) Digital File, color, 4 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: biography & autobiography, personal/diary/journal

In this series I work with democratic information devices. I transform the noise of all devices on a subjective poetic gaze. That contrasts with the objective eye of the informational language. I was recently installed in the village where my mother was born, I was without wifi nor television. As the only entertainment I was contemplating the trees in my front door. One night I experienced the spectacle of nature with me Fireworks storm. So I filmed my first storm in "Les Fonts" (sources) with all devices that I had "hand": mobile, desktop, and was not professional photo camera...and I made an assembly with textures I was offered the different images and sounds to create a visual and auditory rhythm. As if lightning storm allowed draw of the dark night of oblivion, the ghosts of the memory of my origins. Or as if, for a moment, return to the present deconstructed snapshots in time did lose all its original clarity and sharpness.
