    a programm for KIT intermedia by Nomeda & Gediminas Urbonas
slow tv in Rotterdam January 30th, 2006

we are back from Rotterdam since last night and fingers burning to unfold all exciting encounters and links with practices building the public space access through the hybrid TV modes.

Rotterdam met us in a great embrace of a cold weather and a nasty wind. Right after the arrivals we all met at the opening of the exhibition SATELITE OF LOVE, at the Witte de With Contemporary art center. It was a perfect time and place to warm up, meet nice people and start with the first SLOW TV manifestation as well as setting the interviews.

The SLOW TV team Jason, Morten, Hans, Erik, Cath and Linda together with Nomeda and Gediminas starting from scratch:
Jason is installing the SLOW TV stand-large format antique camera that captures the geography of TV trends in a still image turning them literary upside down. We think that for the first edition (launch) of SLOW TV, these stills are great to have along with audio stream on a web. Morten is adjusting sound levels and getting ready with video captures through the on a larger glass charted in a grids on a back of the antique camera. Linda makes sure there is enough light falling by mowing a reflector. Cath is working with making off and plans for one minute short ideas for the festival in Trondheim or/and Vilnius. Hans is taking stills, uploads the web. Erik improvises with moving camera, as well plays a great role to interview the artists together with Jason. Nomeda is documenting behind the scenes and Gediminas gets ready with the questions. There are no fixed roles, we all mix and discuss things, getting time to look at the material after installing temporary SLOW TV studio.

we are not even mentioning exhibitions and film screenings at the IFFR. It is not possible to put into these humble lines all extraordinary experiences and inspiring clues we got during those days for the TV project  we try to setup at the school. Better we all do it in February /March when we get ready with the website. Maybe by that time we have hand made TV projector that we could plug with the self made TV
transmitters? YES! Three TV transmitter were build during the workshop in Rotterdam, and are back to Trondheim.

Now its many hours of material to be transcribed and edited into the interviews as a text files, and edited again in a shorter version for audio streams. Large format photos to be developed, scaled down and put on the web together with text and audio stream. Short samples of video (3 min.) would be also uploaded.
