Cut In Movement in Beehive Ars Electronica

“Cut in movement” is a film experiment, floatation through a city filmed and edited according to the rhythm of a walk or a dance of images. This experimental film is a research on a way of editing that come closer to a choreography of images than to a narrative form. The jumps and the fast edit an eye makes while observing the movements of a city is what this film will reflect.

Walking through the city I film what I lay eyes on, what attracts my interest. These fully subjective choices make the film a personal portray of a city.

The research on editing and cinematography that I am developing (in my past works, MÔWN (movies on my own), Vantage Point) lead me this new project. Cut in movement is for me the occasion to dig into a new area: sound. The city sounds I am recording together with the images require a different attention. I would like to develop this field recordings editing instead of letting a composer create a soundtrack/music like I first thought.

The city is in constant movement, as passers-by involuntarily create duets, trio’s, choruses,… A person standing still in the moving city appears to be the main character of a short crossroad scene.

The Beehive Mons is an ongoing artistic research experiment developed by Ars Electronica for collecting and contextualizing video content from visitors during Mons 2015 – European capital of culture. In the broadest sense it is a cross-media system for crowdsourced video documentation. Bienenstock is the German word for beehive, and this serves as the central metaphor: like in a society of bees, registered participants swarm out, capture footage of an event from a multitude of perspectives and return it (to the hive) to be ingested into the collective pool.

Ariane Loze

Ariane Loze is a young Belgian multidisciplinary artist, as an actress, dancer, performer and video artist. She develops since 2008 Movies on my own, a series of experimental videos, in which she is involved as an author, director, actress, “camera-woman” and director, through which she developed a very personal cinematic style questioning the notions of narrative and cinematic language. After high school, Ariane took the succession to Marianne Van Kerkhoven, a playwriter at Kaaitheater. Then in 2005, she returned to the RITS in Brussels drama school and theater, where she follows a double training in dramatic play and staging.

To complement this training, Ariane participated between 2008 and 2009 at Scenography Studies and Advanced Performance programs at Antwerp, during which she has developed a personal project and turns her first videos. Thereafter, she multiplied the experience, especially with the collective Supercluster for Empire (Art & Politics) whose performances range from 2008 to 2010. Then in 2014 she directed Cut in Movement, an experimental film that offers a portrait of Brussels City, in which she captures the urban dynamic. The movement in the city dictates the logic assembly, creating a visual continuity without any narrative logic.
