All about CHRIS MARKER
Chris Marker — Notes from the Era of Imperfect Memory.
Chrismarker.org 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 eai.org 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.

During the reporting and analyzing, there is always time to make collages.
Hard to do anything but watch what is going on in Egypt
These were the live feeds I could find. Many sites are transmitting Al Jazeera live streaming. Many have live twitter feeds and intermittent video reports from Cairo. At my studio now but it never occurred to me to turn on the TV.
BBC News – Egypt unrest
Al Jazeera English live stream
CNN Live: Egyptian State TV
Egypt protest:live – Telegraph
I could find no US live feeds.

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.
