Hiroshi KONDO, Live Material 01
A friend and I saw Hiroshi Konodo’s Live Material 01 and Live Material 02 as part of NEW NEPON: CONTEMPORARY FILM & VIDEO FROM JAPAN. To say the least, it was a fantastic program, and I’ll search around for the clips from the other films. Live Material 01 and 2 are fun, eye-tasty films to watch. It’s a shame they’re only a minute long each.
Short “documentations” of live VJ performances by this Sapporo-born video artist. Composed with contemporary technologies (AfterEffects and Inferno), both shorts simulate the dated technicolor palate and tone of 90s rave culture. — KS, Conversations at the Edge
