BSA Special Feature:”6th Street Blow Out” Brian Barneclo
“The guy in the car is like, ‘Get the fuck out of the way,’ and the guy on the street is like, ‘This is my home, this is where I live.’
A great piece of storytelling from artist Brian Barneclo as he makes observations on his city of San Francisco, his life there, his art. Naturally he has to try to make sense of the voracious market forces of gentrification on the people who get trampled underneath. There only a decade, the muralist and painter feels the rapid change and the violence of forces that radically redefine what neighborhoods were and what they become.
“Push came to shove and my rent got doubled,” he says. Directed by Jeremy McNamara, the tectonic (or in this case TECHtonic) shifts are remarkable and remarkably heartless as Barneclo takes us to this most storied intersection in San Francisco.
Gonzalo Borondo “Cenere” (Ash)
Borondo keeps it open for you, he provides the stage, the staging area, the proscenium, the altar, the emanating light, the associations and memories you have with your belief system, or lack of one. During his artist residency with residency Pubblica curated by Carlo Vignapiano and Elena Nicolini in May, the Street Artist (among other things) creates a journey as much as a destination in this intimate chapel. The video by Gerdi Petanaj captures this and perhaps a little more.
ARIA: Gonzalo Borondo 73 Figure Animation
The video animation of ARIA in collaboration with Studio 56Fili for Altrove Festival is composed of 73 figures photographed at different times of the day to catch different light and then digitally edited to create the movement.
Rallitox : Ritual Artistico-Científico Para Acabar Con la Adicción a Los Móbiles
First, it would be helpful for you to know that Street Artists and absurdist Rallitox likes to spread confusion. And we have proudly published his street interventions for a number of years.
Secondly, he has some bonified strategies for freeing ourselves from the enslavery of our digital devices.
In this video he presents an artistic ritual to end the addiction to the mobile phone and all the social networks and applications that have you absorbed life. With a few simple steps you can become an independent person free of all ties.
