Timesick from Evan George on Vimeo.

This video was the runner up for the Vimeo Weekend Challenge: Untranslatable II

I used the word Fernweh, meaning feeling homesick for a place you’ve never been to. Instead of longing for a physical place, my take on it was that it could also be a longing for a place in time.

To portray this I went for a dream sequence style, using footage I filmed of some old vehicles in a run-down shed and mashed it together with some old car commercials from back in their golden days. If you could read these cars thoughts this is what they’d be longing for, to go back there. The result came out kinda spooky!

Bill Viola: Cameras are soul keepers from Louisiana Channel on Vimeo.

When video artist Bill Viola was 6 years old he fell into a lake, all the way to the bottom, to a place which seemed like paradise. “There’s more than just the surface of life.” Viola explains. “The real things are under the surface”.

American Bill Viola (born 1951) is a pioneer in video art. In this interview, Viola talks about his development as an artist and his most important breakthroughs. As a child Bill Viola felt that the world inside his head was more real than the outside word. Viola discovered video in 1969. The blue light from the first camera he experienced reminded him of the water in that beautiful lake he almost died in when he was 6.

The first video piece Viola did on his own was “Tape I” from 1972, when he was still at university. Viola replaced the university art theories with his own secret underground path, through Islamic mystics, to Buddhism, to Christianity and finally to St John of the Cross. It was a very liberating experience for him, when he first started calling his artworks what they actually were to him.

Viola once felt that home videos should be kept separate to his artwork, but the sorrow of his mother’s death, and the difficulty of understanding this transition from life to “disappearance”, slowly changed his point of view. He realized that things could not be kept separate. Viola now sees the cameras as keepers of the soul, he explains. The medium holds onto life, a kind of understanding of feelings, keeping them alive.

Bill Viola was interviewed by Christian Lund, Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, in London, 2011.
