ten days

uXolo means peacemaker – that’s what Gloria told me it meant when she named me. It was a beautiful gift, like a pebble rolling off her tongue, welcoming me into her family twenty seven years ago. The ten days calendar is cluttered with days that are numbered...

the siren

The proposed installation is a meander - a footpath forming the outline of a snake woman - an ancient and almost universal symbol for the earth goddess. The figure is to be placed on both sides of a long straight road, symbolising the earth and our own sense of belonging that has been ravaged by our fast moving modern culture.  Read more on www.annisnyman.co.za

graffiti wall invitation

One of my students (Gregg Schwartz) built this wonderful graffiti wall in Flash. With his permission I've adapted it for trans_end to act as a digital drawing pad for those who do not have their own.

I love the retranslation of drawing through digital medium, especially one relatively crude. An artist doesn't need much.

You are invited to visit the graffiti page and make your mark.

(in)flux

a doc(you) ment on lie(fe) / ab(use) and me as I exist in the great /er/ scheme of it all.... tales of intertwinement and confinement in personal space misused....

An experimental nonlinear performance.

The place: A space inhabited by various people over time.

Each person’s (sub)versive actions expose the tragedies which bounce [trapped] off the walls of the box they find themselves in – and remain to resonate in the lives of subsequent dwellers.

%Trance

All human action transforms the world. This is true even if change bears no resemblance to intended change. Transformations effected through human actions are always spatiotemporal. Through action man creates himself and the world. In other words, the self is produced in relation to a world where man's actions always effect spatiotemporal transformations.

%Chance

The two terms that have emerged so far (%Chance and %Trance) are usefull in a discussion about the limits of trance-formation, chance-formation and trans-formation, also new terms.

Although no definition can be given as yet these notions are broadly concerned with:

(1) trance-formation: the predicative character of metaphor in the formation of 'new metaphors' applied in transformative thinking and communicative acts.
(2) chance-formation: the liberating practices required to escape the former.
(3) trans-formation: is the product of the force balance between trance-formation and chance-formation. It is a vector in the present, pointing to the future.

Six Videos published at UTube by nomadic explorations, André Venter's publishing title. A project which asks: does eliminating %chance create %trance? These video downloads are three minutes each and require broadband. André Venter's games with visual images generated by programming is taken into the video format.

Coming soon - soundtrack versions and an interview with André, by André.

"I find André Venter's work incredibly exciting in terms of contemporary process and society. The visual and textual artworks produced under the title %project, are generated by programming. In the same way a painter uses brush and paint to generate visual works of art, André writes and manipulates code to produce his artworks. The repetition and cyclical random adjustments create a hypnotic effect quite familiar to those of us living in the grid of technological society. This grid is reflected not only in our urban structure and daily economic routine, but also in the digital space that we are in the process of building up around us. As an artist his process and end-product resonates deeply with my own sensibility of now. As a digital artist nibbling at the fringes of code, I envy his programming, engineering and philosophical prowess. André is one of those rare beings that surf the front edge of our future. It's been a privilage to engage with him, and a blessing to have lived long enough to recognise the opportunity he brings."
