Exploding Cinema at Goldsmith

Exploding Cinema Tytle Cover

Last Saturday evening,  the Films and Art event / Exploding Cinema  was held in a big church

building ( now it was converted to an art-space for the Goldsmith college / London University

of Art )   It seemed, it was one of the most successful evening of the Exploding Cinema’s history.

Exploding Cinema 1

Exploding Cinema 2

Impressive massive space though, as it has been converted = not purposely built = make use of

the space needed a lots of work especially running all together 100m of the electric extension

cables etc. —– while having time count  ” One hour left” ” Another 15 minuets” — then over load

power cut etc.    The DON / Facilitator of many art events /  James Stevens had to work hard   🙂

Exploding Cinema 3

( Photo right = I brought my kinetic sculpture Virtual Woman with  3W LED light to project

a shadow of moving image on the wall. )

Exploding Cinema 4

( Photo left = Jini Rawlings installing her video projection system with water reflection. 

Photo middle = Matt Lloyd was setting up the AV system in the performance Room.  

Photo right = I brought yet another piece / Hell Fire —– color changing

rotating LED with reflection ! )

Exploding Cinema 6

Then the door open —– loads of audiences has come and enjoyed the evening with massive

amount of all sorts of moving images —– save the coldness of a winter night in the massive

stone building  😦      = though, the advantage was, we didn’t need to use  Cloak-room  🙂  

Exploding Cinema 7

Exploding Cinema 8

Exploding Cinema 9

Other than individual set-up of video projection by each artists, the main screen

showed nearly  30 short videos —– some were pretty experimental  🙂

Exploding Cinema 10

And the Performances !   ( Photo left = Blanca Regina performed her amazing singing

with her video image !  ( And I intruded with my dancing — seemed they liked it  :-D)

Photo middle = Pete Gomes  played his impressive Flute accompanying his 8mm cine

images shot in India.    Photo right = Vicky Smith draw tyre track with her bicycle. )

Exploding Cinema 11

Celina Leiesegang’s group performed their movements.  ( Dance  ? ) 

And it is,  another fixture = Mould Wine !    Good for chilly night  🙂

    You were dancing, Yoshizen?! 🙂
    It looks lie a very creative and interesting event!

      Please Google ” Most Bizarre story in Zen – yoshizen” = a story of dancing lead to Zen 😀
      A projection engineer Matt Lloyd in the above post used to work in the Fridge Club and he
      pulled me to the Exploding Cinema. It is a melting pot of all sorts of creative people, Music,
      Audio, Visual, Photography, Technical making, Design etc, as we often need each other.

        Yoshizen, you were a disco king. Cool!

      Thank you Elena.

      Thank you Karen 🙂
      On the time when the Club Culture was a talking piece, BBC TV came to the Fridge Club, so did the
      Chanel 4 TV and they videoed my dancing though, the movement of my dancing is in the speed of martial art (my favorite music is German base = that’s speed) = under a dim light and with their portable light, the image recorded was too blurry and unusable. —– only a video image so far exists was, when I took a part
      in a theatrical performance in the O’ Project, still it was very blurred image. —– I may need to record it with proper lightings and bright-colored costume 😀 (and upload to Youtube 😀 )

    What is happening with the churches.. 😉

    • yoshizen said, on December 5, 2012 at 02:54

      The building has been converted to have 3 story floors and up-stair will be the studios
      for the artists in residents. —– This Church was rather lucky to find a good use.

      • bentehaarstad said, on December 13, 2012 at 00:26

        😉 And I am also much curious about the Yoshizen dancing. 😉 I always like dancing, all kind of dancing.

    Hey Yosh,love your mis-spelling ‘Mould’ for mulled ,as in wine !


    • yoshizen said, on December 5, 2012 at 12:11

      You are correct.
      It should be Mold = as I thought it was rotten 😀
      £3 for a cup is rotten Ha ha ha.

  6. Virgilio Gavia said, on December 5, 2012 at 11:03

    impressive images!

    • yoshizen said, on December 5, 2012 at 12:05

      Thank you Virgilio.
      Unlike your kind of expression, I like to put rather too
      much in the photos. (So that I use fisheye lens 😀 )
      Despite I say “Less” in Zen and fuzzy photo 😀 😀
      It’s a Life’s fundamental Paradox Sir. Ha ha ha.

    Yoshi-sensei, how come we don’t get to see you dancing?! 🙂 This looks like such a fun night!! I love all the images you’ve captured here. Your kinetic sculpture is very impressive!

  8. yoshizen said, on December 5, 2012 at 14:01

    Thank you Lemony.
    As I wrote in the ” Bizarre story”, my dancing became a legend. To convince non-believer, I invited Non-Club-Gower kind to my Birthday party (up to 70s and I gave a shout to Tibetan Monk as well )
    —- so far it was remained only to privileged. (though, while I was in Fridge Club nearly 6 years
    every weekend, up to 500,000 people might have seen me dancing 😀 )
