A repost of the Kluge videos, with additional information. I’m working on exporting them with lower file sizes, but for now… enjoy.

Vex 1. 2005. 2:08 mins. 29.1 mb. With Christian Nagler. Sound by Christof Migone and Gregory Whitehead from their series “Cris-cris.” Short vignette in which our hero is plunged into a dream world of homoerotic doubles and hellish fish.

Vex 4. 2005. 3:14 mins. 73.5 mb. With Christian Nagler, Michael Gizzi. Sound by Christof Migone and Gregory Whitehead from their series “Cris-cris.” More conceptual than “Vex 1,” utilizing found footage from the web. The poet Michael Gizzi free associates while destroying a piece of toast as the revolution marches on.

Vex 5. 2005. 1:09 mins. 25.9 mb. With Christian Nagler. Sound by Christof Migone and Gregory Whitehead from their series “Cris-cris.” This is the crowd favorite.  Air balloons, hellish fish, lobsters.

Postscript. 2005. 1:56 mins. 26.7 mb. A sort of postscript to the “Vex” series but not part of it. A fish has dreams also, in this case of the hell of industrialization (via the synechdoche of tricycles). Well, probably not worth reading into.

Manchurian Rainman. 2005. 6:19 mins. 86.5 mb. With Frank Sinatra, Laurence Harvey. Two Japanese teenagers, one inflicted with a mild case of autism, discuss their addictions.

ferrari_dogs_thumbnail.jpg

Ferrari Dogs. 2005. 45 secs. 29.5 mb. With Angelina Jolie. Music by Morrissey. This one would make a good Skittles commercial. Our heroine makes her escape through a dreamlike mountainscape pursued by the pet dog she just can’t do without. Love everywhere.
