neem tree plus leafi don’t draw nearly enough these days, but here and especially in Butterfly Hill, rural Andhra Pradesh i generally manage to do something…here are some of my sketches from this year, Nov/Dec 2011…often done with a large audience of assorted orphanage kids who lean into you, grab your arms, grab your pens, grab your book…i got quite used to it after a while…

capi_backstage on Flickr.

All my efforts during the recent workshop I ran went into getting the girls to film and to edit, so there was little time for me to get any filming in myself, but i did manage a little bit.

Here you can see Cielo filming Capi, a friend of hers. Capi is a musician/DJ who performs Champeta music, a hybrid that mixes African and Latin American influences. Anyway, he was happy to give us an impromptu performance…in the clip you also get a little idea of how it was to film on location in the barrio of Moravia in Medellin…

The traffic in Medellin is terrible, the levels of pollution from the  buses and trucks is evident from the huge flumes of black smoke they  emit. You see some amazing vehicles, unusual models from the 70’s and  80’s, a lot of americana…i met him in a garage walking to work, he  customised the truck himself and kindly allowed me to photograph him  with his work…

Stars of Track and field we are…An upside down tank from the Korean War with a treadmill installed on its right track – one of the installations by Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla in the U.S. Pavilion. A USA track and field athlete runs on it periodically to make the treads (and the heads) turn. The athletes throughout the day changed, i filmed a woman (see above) but other times really muscular male runners performed and the whole thing became way more testosteroni…

Moving Stories - an exhibition in Cossila, Biella -These ex industrial spaces with huge dramatic interiors and peeling  walls are tailor made for this kind of video projection. Walk uphill from Biella for about half an hour towards Oropa on a winding road with  no pavement (in the dark!) and eventually you will get there…
