Chris Marker — Notes from the Era of Imperfect Memory. is an randomly-compiled, taxonomically naive and hopefully useful archive of ruminations, bibliographic & filmographic notations, untimely meditations, mnemonic minutiae and other glosses on the cinematic, written, photographic and multimedia work of world-citizen & time-traveler Chris Marker – the “mercurial international man of semiotic mystery.”

Today I found myself led to Electronic Arts Intermix which is putting up its incredible archive of video art and also making public a A Kinetic Art: The EAI Archives Online . In searching their catalogue, I found many Chris Marker films that I have not seen and NEED TO: Immemory, a 1997 CD-ROM, and Prime Time in the Camps , 1993.

Bruce Connor

Found this post on BRUCE CONNOR

Seeing his films in graduate school was one of those ah ha moments for me. I still remember going to his visit artist talk because I went to all the visiting artist talks. And his films using found and stock imagery opened up a entire new world for me and I can see started my ephemeral dissolving image obsession thing I have. I remember after the screening he said that he would show more films in one of the film classrooms and I went along hungry to see more. I can almost see myself then as I write this but I can’t see Bruce Connor – just his films.
