Willoh S. Weiland and Doctor Christopher Fluke
Artistic Director of Aphids Willoh S. Weiland will reflect upon her trilogy of epic projects investigating the relationship between art and outer space in conversation with Doctor Christopher Fluke.
The artist will present material from FOREVER NOW, a golden record for the 21st Century, compiled and designed by a cross-disciplinary team of artists and curators; VOID LOVE, an online soap opera about space developed through a residency with Swinburne University’s Department of AstroPhysics and Supercomputing; and YELLING AT STARS, Australia’s first inter-stellar message transmitted deep into outer space.
Natural Selections – OtherFilm
OtherFilm presents two 16mm Films from the National Film and Sound Archive’s Non-Theatrical Loans Collection which feature as case studies in the Natural Selections resource room.
Green Canopy, Paul Winkler, 1994, 24mins, 16mm film
Experiments, Dirk de Bruyn, 1982, length variable, 16mm film
These 16mm film prints are material; they have materialised. They are real; they have been realised. They have scars; they are vulnerable; but they also have so many stories to tell, meanings to uncover.
Eventually all films will fade so badly that there’ll be nothing at all left. In 100 years there’ll be barely any film images left. These objects that we worked so hard to realise have something like a cancer that slowly deteriorates inside itself, there’s nothing you can do about it.
OtherFilm: When the print contains no more images, what is its value?
Paul Winkler, 2015
