Restoration Announcement: Tom Waits "For No One" -

Categories: [New Acquisition] 



Tom Waits For No One, by director John Lamb


is a pioneering, mostly forgotten music video that is being rediscovered with the help of a Kickstarter campaign to restore the film. Made on state of the art analog technology in 1979, it features Tom Waits and his song "The One That Got Away" from the album Small Change. The film was a first job for several animation leaders like David Silverman and Harry Sabin. In 1980, John Lamb won an Academy Award for the co-invention of the Lyon Lamb Video Animation System, which was used in making of the film. Gunnar Strom, founder of Animation Volda and a professor at Volda University College in Norway, has written that Tom Waits For No One "is a pioneering, early American music video and is very likely the first rotoscoped music video ever made". The iotaCenter is proud to announce that Tom Waits For No One will be joining the iotaCenter's collection.



There are 22 days left in the kickstarter campaign: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/719707576/tom-waits-for-no-one-35th-anniversary-celebration

"The Garden" (2010) by Ann Steuernagel - Now Available in the Library and Study Center!

Categories: [New Acquisition] 

"The Garden" (2010, DV, 10min) is a reflection on climate change. It is created from found, recycled film footage and is presented in three parts. "I work almost exclusively with found footage (educational and industrial films, and home movies). Once I have appropriated the footage I practice the art of montage with great pleasure by colliding disparate images, looping clips and manipulating time. Such techniques accentuate the gestures and quotidian rhythms of my subjects distilling the essence of a time, place or idea. Although a narrative is never explicit one may be implied."

This film and much more can be viewed at our Library & Study Center in Culver City, CA. Please set up a viewing appointment by contacting us at: info@iotacenter.org.

Ann Steuernagel is an experimental video and sound artist. Her work has been presented throughout the United States and in Canada, Mexico, and Europe. She is the recipient of the grand prize at the XX VideoArt Festival in Locarno, Switzerland, a Massachusetts Cultural Council Media Fellowship, a LEF grant, and a fellowship from the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study. Ann is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Art + Design at Northeastern University.

from Ebir Nari

Ebir Nari (Beyond the River) (2009, DVD, 65min)
Reflecting hidden places in mind and space, Ebir Nari traces a story of mythical geography and ancient death ritual, shot in India, the Caucasus and England. Inspired by the concept of the Tibetan Book of the Dead, the film is a raw contemplation on the images of life and the hereafter, which smears intellectual borders and reassembles the spiritual atlas of human beliefs.

Twelve haikus in lethargy (unfinished) (2010, DVD, 7min)
The passive realism of nature reveals itself through simplicity and lightness. Three lines of verse draw on the correlation between image and phenomena in one temporal point. Using the manoeuvres of this stylised form, the film captures with minimal means of expression the rhythm of the way of things.

These films and much more can be viewed at our Library & Study Center in Culver City, CA. Please set up a viewing appointment by contacting us at: info@iotacenter.org.
