Eye of the Beholder – Open Call

Michele Manfellotto, autore della rubrica di Nero Heaven Is Knowing Who You Are, ha cominciato una raccolta di materiale video e fotografico relativo a tutti gli eventi di Maxximalism.

Il progetto, provvisoriamente intitolato Eye Of The Beholder, mira alla composizione di un’opera collettiva, un montaggio di frammenti girati dal pubblico con apparecchi di uso quotidiano, dalle videocamere ai telefoni cellulari, rovesciando il punto di osservazione e privilegiando la descrizione dell’esperienza individuale rispetto alla registrazione pura e semplice dell’evento.

Non si tratta insomma di produrre un documentario, piuttosto un cut-up visivo e sonoro di punti di vista personali sulle nuove forme che ha assunto nel ventunesimo secolo il rito immortale del concerto.

ENTRO IL 30 SETTEMBRE

Oppure spedisci un cd o un dvd a

Lungotevere degli artigiani 8/b – 00153 – Roma

Le foto e i video saranno archiviati e selezionati da Michele Manfellotto con la collaborazione della video maker e artista Tijana Mamula e dello staff di Nero.

Tutti i partecipanti saranno citati, anche quelli che non saranno inclusi nel montaggio finale, perciò non dimenticare di aggiungere nome e cognome.
