Premiere #67 by Joost Rekveld at IFFR

Blog post


The 46th edition of the International Film Festival Rotterdam starts January 25, 2017. 
Like every year, LIMA and its artists are well represented at the festival.
This year, a special work premieres: '#67' by Joost Rekveld, commissioned by LIMA .
As a tribute to 'Reminiscence', and 'Telc' by Steina and Woody Vasulka, this analogue HD video work is guided by the concept of 'reafference', a term that refers to the perceptual changes we cause when we move our sensory organs. In #67, we witness a stroll through the electromagnetic worlds of machines and men, structured by the 50 Hz that is both the fundamental frequency of our power lines and the frame-rate of analogue video.

The work '#67' is commissioned by LIMA as part of 'UNFOLD Mediation by reinterpretation', a research project and a collaborative, international research network that examines re-interpretation as emerging practice for the preservation of media artworks.

sound//vision @ WORM
Joost Rekveld will also participate in sound//vision 2017 on Friday January 27. This is a four-night programme at club WORM Rotterdam featuring live A/V performances. January 27 kicks off with Ursae Minoris, the brand new performance by filmmaker Joost Rekveldand musicians Dario Calderone and Claudio F. Baroni. To create the music, Baroni translated the positions and clarity of the stars in the Ursa constellation into tones and note lengths. Rekveld’s live visuals are inspired by the light travelling through space, and the visual phenomena this causes. Sound//vision is part of IFFR Short Film's programme. For more info, check the IFFR page and the Facebook Event page.
