Energy is turned off, development stopped, irregularities started in the social mechanism – therefore, the power has been taken by emptiness. The latter comes in different shapes: attacking those who are different, glorifying post-truth, losing empathy, impersonating, turning to the cult of violence and exploitation. Emptiness reigns and encourages to think separately, ignoring the very fact of irregularities in our world. Attempts to resist this situation include multimedia manifests, cuss words and critical look at emptiness through the attentive eye of an artist.

We are tired of the deaths. Do something or get out.
A somewhat experimental film working to bring attention to this incredibly important topic via the platform it is so widely talked about on. Inspired by the students of Stoneman Douglas and others around the country who are speaking out. This will be the last one.

Life-giving beings live in this world filled with diversity. But suddenly bird-headed humanoids turn up. They catch, use and suck the life out of these colorful beings until all resources are exhausted. This world’s colorful diversity fades until the planet is turned into a wasteland.

‘Painting with the Man’ was developed through the use of a camera-less motion capture suit worn by Freya Olafson. The work references Yves Klien’s Anthropométries 1960 series; wherein Klein engaged nude women as 'human paint brushes'. Dressed in bow-tie and suit Klein would conduct the women as they covered themselves (in his patented color ‘International Klein Blue’) and made imprints of their bodies on canvas. In ‘Painting with the Man’ Olafson uses a digital readymade generic male 3D body to imprint the canvas / screen.

"from this side of space to the other side of the signal" utilizes footage produced on unique analog equipment from the early history of video during a residency at Signal Culture (a contemporary version of the original Experimental Television Center in Owego, NY), and emerges from a nod to Michael Snow's iconic structural film La Région Centrale. Virtual landscapes pumped through the analog system become caught amidst sets of "meaningless" signs/barriers and violent signals.

Silicontology is a coined portmanteau that fuses the world of integrated circuits and data bytes with sea sponges and shimmering sands. It is an idea that zooms far out to the celestial—the astronauts of Apollo 11 left a piece of silicon inscribed with messages from Earth on the moon—then zooms in to the earth's sediment and further still, to the aesthetic realm of poetry.
