- an ongoing net-based documentary.
Presented in its initial version at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis at the end of the 1990’s, nocinema.org is an ever-evolving streaming application developed by the French artist and composer Jérôme Joy.
This project is a net-based documentary/fiction of web interludes that appear differently each time. Nocinema.org is in a sense a sort of improbable cinema and a film with neither beginning, middle or end, nor participants or storyboard. The viewer constructs the story himself, projects his own thoughts and interpretations on a stream of random images.
Nocinema.org is an automatic process, drawing upon strings of live streaming webcams across the world, transmitting live scenes collected from different locations with added panoramic movements and temporized on-line editing, into which some black screen shots are inserted.. The sound, each time offering a different sequenced overlay, comes from a shared soundfiles database which is fed and updated by a team of international sound artists and collaborators including : Magali Babin, DinahBird, Christophe Charles, Yannick Dauby, Chantal Dumas, Emmanuelle Gibello, Jérôme Joy, Luc Kerléo, Alain Michon et Jocelyn Robert.It has been presented in the following places/festivals.. Walker Art Center Minneapolis, Urban Screens Manchester 07, Travelling without Moving Oboro Center Montréal, Wj-s Festival RIAM Marseilles, Centre IMAL Brussels,
Wj-s Festival Plektrum Tallinn.
