On December 17th and 18th White Box Museum of Art has the pleasure to open its door to InsideOut Step2 – Latest trends in Western Videoart, an international selection from the first two editions of Arte Video Roma Festival proposed by CARMA – Applied Multimedia Art and Research Center (Rome, Italy).
The selection will include some of the most interesting works collected by the curatorial board Le Momo Electronique during its several years monitoring work on Italian and foreign productions. Nine Artists from America, North Europe and Italy will be screened in the prestigious VIP ROOM of White Box Museum of Art, Beijing, China.

“There was a different kind of radioactivity in Ken Ueno’s rather severe “Sabinium,” for electronic tape with a video realization by animator Harvey Goldman. Ueno recorded the sounds of bursting bath bubbles, convolved them with battle noises and built the results into a sometimes-fragile, sometimes-brutal but always poetic piece of noise music. Goldman’s animation — primordial cell-like structures interacting in a sort of cosmic soup — elegantly interpreted the score and referenced the underlying story of the Sabine women, and in spite of its mercilessly monochromatic and minimalist materials, “Sabinium” was fascinating throughout.” ….

The second offering was a video set to a sound design created by Ken Ueno (animation by Harvey Goldman), a mesmerizing sort of essay on the violent properties of bubbles (watch it here)–the unsettling sounds Ueno creates evoke violent, fundamental processes replicated across natural, mechanical, and human experiences.
