Ruth Maramis is the founder of FlixChatter, a movie review blog that gives in depth, honest reviews while at the same time managing to sound intelligent and put together. I think we can all agree that the internet is chalk full of people spewing their feelings left and right (myself included) so it’s nice to see people express opinions without all the vitriol. Ruth is also a staff blogger at the Twin Cities Film Fest and she’s currently working on her first screenplay. 00:00 Mic Break 00:34 Along The Way - Adan & Xavi y Los Imanes 04:21 Fuera El Dolor - Adan & Xavi y Los Imanes 06:58 Intro 07:34 I’m Not The One - Adan & Xavi y Los Imanes 11:23 Finalidad - Adan & Xavi y Los Imanes 14:52 Flix Chatter - Ruth 24:58 West Coast - Hey Marseilles 28:35 Another Life - Hey Marseilles 31:44 Flix Chatter - Ruth 40:09 Fresh Faced Claire - Carter Tanton 43:12 Poison In The Dart - Carter Tanton 46:04 Send Off 46:16 The Dressmaker’s Girl - Carter Tanton 51:24 Diamonds In The Mine - Carter Tanton 56:30 Finish Courtesy of FlixChatter Courtesy of FlixChatter
Photographer Liz Nielsen works in a room above a boxing gym that is just as much a laboratory as it is an artist's studio. The room is filled with colored gels, fiber optic lights, stacks of photo paper and a box with a label that says "disco balls and rainbow machine." These items and more are what Liz uses for her photographic experiments, and the prints that result from her visual investigations into light and color are pinned up all over the studio walls. There are abstract photographs depicting colored geometrical forms floating against pure black backgrounds, circular images of what appear to be deep space, and an assortment of collages and other seemingly photographic works, some clearly successful experiments others still on the drawing board. Liz is interested most of all by color and specifically the physics of color, from the ways that colors can be manipulated in the dark room, to the ancient light from outer space seen only through deep space telescopes.
Liz Neilsen's photographic experiments draw on images of deep space and the relationship between light and time. Using fiber optic lights, disco balls, multiple exposures and darkroom techniques Liz Neilsen makes a range of colorful abstract photographic images that she says are inspired by everything from the Large Hadron Collider to the streets that she photographs daily on the way to and from work. Liz is fascinated by images of deep space and the relationship between light and time. In her studio she creates her own fictional deep space photographs and long exposure color photographs made with homemade negatives collaged from color gels. This week I visited Liz's studio above a gym in Bushwick, to find out more about her hybrid photography practice
