I think of this book of images from "La Jetee" is a treasure. About this book: "This book version of La Jetée is, to my mind, astonishingly beautiful. It brings a total freshness to the work and a new way to use photos to deal with dramatic events. Not a film's book, but a book in its own right--the real ciné-roman announced in the film's credits." --Chris Marker La Jetée, the legendary science fiction film about time and memory after a nuclear apocalypse, was released in 1964 and is considered by many critics to be among the greatest experimental films ever made. (It provided the basis for Terry Gilliam's 1995 film 12 Monkeys.) Chris Marker, who is the undisputed master of the film essay, composed this postapocalyptic story almost entirely of black-and-white still photographs. The story concerns an experiment in recovering and changing the past through the action of memory, yet the film can be read as a poem dominated by a single moving image, which in its context becomes one of the supreme moments in the history of film. This Zone Books edition reproduces the film's original images along with the script in both English and French.

A Korean sound/video artist, Nam June Paik first piqued the world's attention through a trickle of tape recordings that were so rare they were soon mentioned in hushed tones and changed hands for daft money. Fast forward to now and the friendly folk at Sub Rosa have decided to re-release this collection of work from Paik, all of which was recorded between 1958 and 1979 and lurches from the avant to the populist and back-again - all before you have chance to fully comprehend what's happening. Opening with 'Prepared Piano For Merce Cunningham', Paik initially augments the sparse ivories with a hissing bed of field recording that frames the spasmodic percussion perfectly. Clocking in at almost 30 minutes, 'Prepared Piano...' is expertly judged in taking an outwardly austere selection of elements then making space for them to unfurl their wings at a leisurely pace - hence dragging the listener deep within the composition. Whilst this is no-ones idea of easy-listening, the rewards which can be earned from the manipulated vocals of 'Hommage A John Cage' and delicate piano of 'Dueet Paik/Takis' are well worth breaking the brittle surface skin for, with Paik proving to be a genuine visionary who was well ahead of his time. Paik and ride!

Installation art and video art is my favorite fine art forms, it's always exciting to have access to the work, as most installation art seldom leaves the museum or gallery space. About Fades: Fades is video installation for a specifically designed environment. Ultra fine sprays of mist are introduced into a space in which the white light of the projection manifests itself. These fades move in synchrony to the sound creating a variety of shapes and structures based on linear and logarithmic wave modulations. The main focus does not lie on the image projected, but on the light beam itself, which becomes a three-dimensional sculpture. Similar to the essence of music the visual vocabulary of Fades establishes a kind of universal language that is able to communicate what is outside of our usual systems of understanding. The book compiles a number of stills from the source movie of Fades along with some installation views and the text inside the black box by Daniel Klemm. The DVD includes the source movie of Fades as stereo or 5.1 version.
