DMF – Digital Art Festival

The Digital Art Festival in Manila is today, 05 October 2002 close to its end tomorrow, Wilfried is participating already the 2nd time in this festival organized by Fatima Lasay @ The University of Philippines Diliman, after the 1st time one year ago in 2001. While Wilfried was presenting a collection of early moving images works created in 2001 like “Identity of Color” and “Never Wake Up”, this year in 2002 the particpation is looking rather like a kind of festival co-curation, because his both projects presented in Manila – Violence Online Festival, launched earlier in August – and the 2nd big JavaMuseum show – “Fundamental Patterns – Peripheral Basics” – include a project realized by Fatima Lasay and students of the University, entitled” MANDALA” featuring digital art works by art students – so his participation is a kind of cultural exchange between EAST an WEST – Eastern and Western philosophy manifested in art works using the current (2002) technological posibilities of using a computer as a tool for artistic creations.

Watch – Seconds Forever, 2001, 3:20

Surveillance can become an obsession for those who observe and those who are observed. For the victim captured and tortured, seconds are never ending.
