THROUGH THE SHATTERED NEEDLE, III
NO MORE BORING ART
A poem by Nicolas Linares, with Estatica Inminente:
THROUGH THE SHATTERED NEEDLE II
”La noche está en armonía con el día,
y la vida está en armonía con la muerte,
y la tierra está en armonía con el cielo.
La presencia está en armonía con la ausencia….
Esta es la única forma de vida que respeta y ama,
y no niega nada, no condena nada”.
Fragmentos del Manifiesto Zen.

Through the shattered needle
”La poesía no puede atraparse en las cárceles.. no puede reventar el pecho.. no puede morir torturada… debe salir al aire, llenarlo, contaminarlo de verdades innegables”…
Martha Colburn is a filmmaker and multimedia artist. Born in Pennsylvania, she now lives and works between Holland and New York City. Although Ms. Colburn’s style is unmistakably her own, the scope of her work is broad and difficult to encapsulate; her expertise (especially in stop-motion animation) have led to teaching, speaking, and lectures at film forums and universities worldwide. I had the pleasure of meeting her during our exhibit “Revolution” at the Texas Firehouse in LIC, NY this past June 25th. Learn more about her at: www.marthacolburn.com (she’s amazing).

Juan Camilo Amaris:
Born in Bogotá, Colombia. Juan Camilo Amaris is a multi-media artist and musician who often travels around the US and South America to collaborate in collectives and creative projects. A member of the Steamin’ Pipes collective of NY, his piece “Blink” in stop-motion animation, participated at the Yoveo International VideoFest N.Y.C 2009 and was a part of the Algo-Imagen video fest of Bogota 2010.
His second piece, “Triptico, 1”, is a study of time, space and body dynamics:
And this fourth video was just a happy coincidence I stumbled upon while enjoying other animations. Enjoy!
“A SHORT VISION” (1956)
This short animated film is Peter and Joan Foldes’ second and last film together. Its bleak subject – the end of the world caused by a nuclear apocalypse – reflects a widespread preoccupation in 50s Britain which would soon lead to the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND).
The film is composed mostly of still drawings, creating a terrifying effect amplified by a sombre commentary spoken in the style of the Bible. The film had a very strong impact on audiences, in particular across the Atlantic, where it was shown on primetime television to millions of American viewers and reportedly produced one of the biggest reactions since Orson Welles’ ‘War of the Worlds’ broadcast in 1938.
