Shakespeare Sonnets - Robert Wilson

 

"Shakespeares Sonnets" Robert Wilson,  Rufus  Wainwright,  Berliner Ensemble 

 

Sonett 66

 

 

 

All dessen müd
nach Rast im Tod ich schrei
ich seh es doch
Verdienst muss betteln gehen.

und reinste Treu am Pranger steht dabei,
und kleine Nullen sich im Aufwind blähen,
und Talmi-Ehre hebt man auf den Thron,
und Tugend wird zur Hure frech gemacht.

und wahre Redlichkeit bedeckt mit Hohn,
und Kraft durch lahme Herrschaft umgebracht,
und Kunst das Maul gestopft vom Apparat,
und Dummheit im Talar Erfahrung checkt.

und schlichte Wahrheit nennt man Einfalt glatt,
und Gutes Schlechtesten die Stiefel leckt,
all dessen müd möcht ich gestorben sein,
blieb nicht mein Liebster wenn ich sterb allein."
 

 

 

 

Sonnet 29

 

When, in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes,
I all alone beweep my outcast state
And trouble deal heaven with my bootless cries
And look upon myself and curse my fate,
Wishing me like to one more rich in hope,
Featured like him, like him with friends possess'd,
Desiring this man's art and that man's scope,
With what I most enjoy contented least;
Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising,
Haply I think on thee, and then my state,
Like to the lark at break of day arising
From sullen earth, sings hymns at heaven's gate;
For thy sweet love remember'd such wealth brings
That then I scorn to change my state with kings.

 

 

 

 

Sonnet 20

 

 



A woman's face with nature's own hand painted,
Hast thou, the master mistress of my passion;
A woman's gentle heart, but not acquainted
With shifting change, as is false women's fashion:
An eye more bright than theirs, less false in rolling,
Gilding the object whereupon it gazeth;
A man in hue all hues in his controlling,
Which steals men's eyes and women's souls amazeth.
And for a woman wert thou first created;
Till Nature, as she wrought thee, fell a-doting,
And by addition me of thee defeated,
By adding one thing to my purpose nothing.
But since she prick'd thee out for women's pleasure,
Mine be thy love and thy love's use their treasure.

"Written images" ART on Demand 

Created in collaboration with more than 70 media artists and developers from across the world, Written Images is the first of its kind. A 'programmed book', continuously regenerated for the digital printing process, offering each reader a unique experience. We first announced our project in February 2010. Since then, more than 70 image generating software programs were submitted. A jury singled out the 42 most creative and successful submissions to be included in the book. The projects has been financed by the  Kickstarter-Community recently.

Howard Glitch

₪₪₪ THE PLOT ₪₪₪

A group of unfortunate passengers are trapped on a spaceshuttle flight that is headed for a fatal destination.. The only person with the power to turn the shuttle around, is Howard The Decider, who has fallen asleep at the wheel, miles away in the safety of his space station. But not all of the passengers believe that this event is happening by accident, nor without purpose, and so what unfolds is a tense drama of survival and shifting perceptions, that also introduces the themes of existentialism, alchemy, quantum mechanics, and the power of the human spirit to create hope in a chronically hopeless space…


₪₪₪ THE PROJECT ₪₪₪


The mythology of THE DECIDER vs THE DECIDED is expressed as a multimedia jigsaw puzzle:


THE WORD is currently a 30,000 word first draft, that will be refined into a published allegorical novella. An audio book will also

accompany it, narrated by Henry Devas (BBC UK)

 

 


THE SOUND retells pivotal moments in the story arc, as an abstract conceptual album of strings, stuttering guitars, break-beats & 8bit concertos.


THE SIGHT reincarnates the plot through ink, colour & digital art, exploring the deeper nature of consciousness, and expressing it in both acrylic and cryptic ASCII code art forms. This piece will be embedded inside the Book as Visual Artwork.


₪₪₪ THE MOSAIC ₪₪₪

Everyone who purchases a PHYSICAL copy of the project, will have a unique hand-drawn image in the final page of their Book.... Once everyone receives their copy of the book, a forum will be opened online where everyone can scan in and share their unique image..

Together the jigsaw of images will form a message that leads to an online easter egg hunt for Bonus Material & Downloads.


Your contribution goes to: Writing time, publishing costs, visual art materials, condensor microphones, studio time, and web design.

On reaching our target: Howard Glitch will be finished in time for a spring release. Thank you to everyone that is helping to spread the word, and bring the glitch to life.

visualized lectures

Visualisierte Lecture des Amerikaners Brian Artese

Beim Stöbern im Internet stieß neulich auf eine visualisierte Vorlesung (in Englisch) über Kafka und Foucault, gehalten vom amerikanischen Literaturwissenschaftler Brian Artese. Die Literaturfilme fanden mein Interesse und sprechen die zentralen Fragen an - bei Kafka und Foucault.

Brian Artese ist Professor an der Georgia State University. Sein Spezialgebiete sind: die britische Moderne, narrative Theorien und Literatur des 20. Jahrhunderts. Neben Kafka sei er auch ein großer Robert-Musil-Fan, verriet er mir kürzlich.

 

This video looks at the work of the French scholar Michel Foucault through the lens of Franz Kafka’s novel of 1915, _The Trial_. (Part 1 of 3)

Seine Gedankengänge über Literatur bereitet Brian Artese filmisch auf -  in historischen Zeitdokumenten, mit kommentierten Filmausschnitten und Visual Arts. Die Bandbreite reicht von Orson Wells`Kafka Film " Le Procès" über Soderberghs Kafka-Remake bis hin zu historischen Aufzeichnungen über menschliche Anomalien und historische Zeichnungen aus dem 17.-19. Jahrhundert.

Die Visualisierung ist unprätentiös und der Gedankenentwicklung untergeordnet, konsistent und als sehr gelungen zu bezeichnen. Fürs Auge lässt Artese Lecture keine Wünsche offen. Auch inhaltlich stellt die Kafka-Interpretation die richtigen Weichen, indem sie vor Missinterpretationen warnt wie sie Soderberghs Kafka-Verfilmung nahelegt. Franz Kafkas Werk werden bei Artese wieder die breiten und unergründbaren Interpretionsräume zugemessen, die sein Werk auszeichnen und zeitlos machen.

Weil sich intellektuelle Inhalte schwer in das 5 Minuten-You-Tube-Format pressen lassen, ist die Lecture dreiteilig und etwas länger geraten, In ihrer Art und Weise jedoch gelungen!  Sehen & hören Sie selbst!
