About:

Release Date: 30 November 2020 (Australia).

"In photography, a negative is an image, usually on a strip or sheet of transparent plastic film, in which the lightest areas of the photographed subject appear darkest and the darkest areas appear lightest. This reversed order occurs because the extremely light-sensitive chemicals a camera film must use to capture an image quickly enough for ordinary picture-taking are darkened, rather than bleached, by exposure to light and subsequent photographic processing." - Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Negative_(photography)

We use negative in filmmaking to create visual art projects which are complemented by a monotone drone performed on artificial violin looping one tone starting from C and increasing pitch all the way to B (including C, C#/Db, D D#/Eb, E, F, F#/Gb, G, G#/Ab, A, A#/Bb, B). Which will include 17 videos in total before we will close this project.

Sergei Tumanov – Under The Surface

About:

Release Date: 29 July 2020 (Australia).

The given visual installation by Sergei Tumanov is dedicated to the world of 2020 and represents a feeling of being in limited space with lots of pressure from all directions and as a metaphorical representation of the concept, the main object in the video is water. Even though water might also represent the flow of life, it creates pressure which might be unmanageable for those who are not equipped. The right mental state might be the equipment to stay safe and thus find an exit from any situation and that is the main idea of the video. For the video, Sergei is using an underwater action camera (under the surface) to create a feeling of pressure which is, however, decreasing closer to the end of the video to represent the hope of finding an exit and letting all the water (fears, anxiety) go away.
