When I left high school I thought maybe I wanted to be a movie director.. so I went to London and found work as a runner for a production company, Activate Productions, which mainly did music videos. Since then (this was 1995) it has become much easier to make videos in the comfort of your own home, and I still like to play around with it once in a while. On ArtReview I met some people who were doing a project that sounded like fun…

The Exquisite Corpse Video Project (ECVP) is a unique video collaboration of 36 artists from 16 countries, inspired by the Surrealist invention, the “Exquisite Corpse”. The project is coordinated by the Brazilian video-artist Kika Nicolela.

Using the semi-blind, sequential method of the surrealists’ game, ECVP participants create video art in response to the final ten seconds of the previous member’s work. Each member is asked to incorporate these seconds into their piece, creating transitions as they please, until everyone’s vision is threaded together into an instigating final “corpse.”

ECVP Screenings and exhibitions have been taking place in various countries since June, such as Sweeden, USA, Greece, Canada, Brazil, Australia and South Africa. A book about the project will be released in the first semester of 2009.

An interview with some of the project members can be read here.

The Vitruvian Woman

The Vitruvian Woman is a multimedia sculpture created by 34 artists from around the world. Inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s sketch; The Vitruvian Man, which idealises the classic proportions of the human body, in his case the male body, The Vitruvian Woman sets out to trace the multidimensionality of womanhood in a flow of five three-minute video sequences reflecting the nine bodily regions: the head, heart, stomach, sexual organ, right arm, left arm, left leg, right leg and feet.
