Rolling Volume 10.1
Our second entry for Volume 10.1, Sy Taffel’s thought-provoking documentary Automating Creativity explores how workers in the creative industries and academics who study technology and culture understand the existing and emerging relationships between automation and creativity, and how these relationships inform contemporary communication, media and culture. Taking the recent surge of interest in digital automation as his starting point, Taffel constructs a pointed overview of these computational tools in relation to creative practices through interviews with key figures in the field, archive material and voice over narration. His accompanying statement examines the political implications of digital automation and reflects on his own use of automated tools during the production of the documentary soundtrack.
We’re excited to announce the first entry for our rolling Volume 10.1: Anna Ulrikke Andersen’s captivating The Norwegian Institute in Rome. Using techniques from the essay film and its form to approach architectural history, this meticulous work poses questions about the use of film as architectural history and, including authorial intervention in the Agnès Varda mode, whether the filmmaker is able to address what framing in film and architecture can be, and do.
