Three samples from the latest art video collaboration between Marta Graciela Bressi and Dirk Schreurs http://www.mindsofglass.webs.com Minds of Glass was officially presented at the 2009 International Independent Video and Film Festival in LA and NY (August 4 and October 24, 2009) and at the latest edition of the C-Mine Jazz Festival (Genk, Belgium from the 12th to the 13th of November, 2010.) More information about the project: The Birth of the Project The eleven videos that make up the Minds of Glass Project are the result of a fortuitous virtual encounter between two artists from the Old and the New World who express themselves using different media and tools. This collaboration, which was born as two separate entities, came to fruition when the Belgain musician Dirk Schreurs saw in the digital art of the Argentinian visual artist Marta Graciela Bressi a reflection of his own compositions. It was a pleasant surprise for both to discover that their individual works pulsed with the rhythm of each other's creations. The way in which both expressions merge make of this project a unique experience for the senses- a visual and auditory experience like none you have ever had. This project is not only original because of the way it was born, but because of the means used to accomplish the visual elements that are part of it. The manipulation of the technological tools at Marta's disposal is also unique and the mastery of such tools is the result of ten years of dialy research and hard work on the computer. None of the images you will see features any predetermined shapes like the ones found in graphic editors, everything has been created by the artist's hand using the mouse as if it were a pencil. Philosophy Minds of Glass is the reflection of a new universe of images and sounds. Each of the 11 parts (3 samples on this show) functions like a window of consciousness through which the observer may experience aspects of a unifying world where visionary and auditory perceptions blend in a refreshing way. The transitory character of images and sounds leaves behind a trace of the Eternal or That, which embraces every moment in life. Minds of Glass is a spontaneous cry for awareness, a call for freedom of expression with respect for the unity of all living beings.
ArtistVision is an anthology of videos by and about visual artists. The show's antecedents include a public access cable TV series, a blog and related community of hundreds of artists in an online group in which all the artists cross-promote and assist one another to gain greater exposure for their art.
