Video work at the Centre for the Less Good Idea - Jurgen Meekel









Time / Louder / Faster 
Jurgen Meekel (2017)

The video installation piece includes three different projections in a triptych arrangement. It shows digitally manipulated video footage that was gathered during the first workshop held at the Centre for the Less Good Idea in December 2016. The video material, that contains mainly dance and boxing, is treated with a filter that takes a number of video frames before and after the current frame. This produces a wavery effect.

In addition, there’s an audio recording that runs simultaneously with the 3 videos, containing music and sounds that were also produced during the December workshop. The loudness-intensity of the audio track propels the footage forward, in a faster or slower manner. In other words, the higher dB’s (decibels) the faster the video moves forward in time and the lower the dB’s the slower it moves.The piece uses audio and video material that was recorded at the workshop, hence I would like to thank all participants that were subjects’ or involved in producing the recordings in this piece.

Palinopsia-(seeing again) is my new laser Projection work on a Glow-in-the-Dark surface that was made in collaboration with BushveldLabs. The premiere of this digital art project was shown the Alight festival on 1 Sept 2016 in Johannesburg. When projecting with lasers onto a GITD surfaces, the image will leave a trace and remains visible for some time. After that, one can re-project over the remaining image to create visual layering. The way temporality and the mark relate to each other, positions glow-in-the-dark laser projection between cinema and photography.

video
For the Jeff Barbee Cape to Amsterdam sea trip diary I designed this title sequence.
The size is small as it was sent to me from the sailng ship via satellite, which was quite costly. In the course of 3 months we uploaded 20 similar video's reporting on climate change in the Atlantic ocean.
