On Stupkova  (see sample video)*
4K Video and Sound by Dan Senn

duration 6:14

Venting On Stupkova (2023) was filmed on August 12, 2023 in Holešovice, Prague, on a street named Stupkova near Holešovická tržnice (markets). The sound track was developed from Lycon 35 and Lycon 52, two of 64 sound translations of the I Ching into sound. The subject matter is comprised of building vents, a gas (PLYN) plate and pedestrians walking through the image field while shooting.

* Listen with headphones.

Venting... has no meaning other than wordless poetry can be produced from most things. For it to be fully appreciated, the work must be
seen-heard as tightly integrated intermedia gestures used to fully inflate its rhythmic anatomy—like dance with music. These visual gestures move independently or are tightly bound with the sound forming a continuum of possibilities triggering/ignoring actions in the opposing medium—a complex, life mirroring algorithm of exchanged impetus.
Trash Like Poetic was created shortly before this work.
