Noemata (http://noemata.net) is excited to show this second edition of One-Off Moving Image Festival http://noemata.net/one-off/
of 65 one second long movies on the theme of humans vs. nature,
forming together one minute of disparate and fleeting flashes of content and discontent.
All movies are screening during the festival February 18-24, 2019 in
public spaces in Valencia(ES) and Gol(Norway) in addition to the net, using QR-codes and offline wifi-spots to access with smart devices.
We’re collaborating with 60Seconds Festival (http://60sec.org)
in Copenhagen(DK) taking place in parallel, to screen a selection of the
1 sec movies mixed with 1 minute movies in Copenhagen, Frederiksberg, Køge
and Helsingør during the festival week.
In addition, all 1 second movies will be included in the next Leap Second Festival
(http://noemata.net/leapsec27), an irregular x-ennale lasting one second.

the sound of the rain needs no translation
Jürgen Trautwein presents his 6th show with 60SIX, “the sound of the rain needs no translation.”
This reductive suite of paintings, like most of Trautwein’s series’ uses visual and conceptual content from his last body of work as momentum into the next. In “Train Ride to Luxor” the flat horizontal paintings with a trancelike light inner white glow bounced the viewer’s eye from flat space to deep space and back again. In the new work the viewer steps almost entirely into the deep white space where color practically disappears from the edges, almost like entering Doug Wheeler’s “infinity room” of white light and nothingness.
This series’ title and it’s individual painting titles, such as “Every Day is a Good Day” and “Neptune’s Girlfriend” translate the work’s embodiment of zen notions of the here and now. Like a Robert Ryman painting or a Jon Zurier, this work sits quietly and demands only a deep breath. Trautwein has dual sets of work in his practice. His drawings and video works (some of which he calls hypertexts) with sound and his signature “time sheets,”sublimate nervous energy and illuminate randomness and chaos. They satirize politics, technology, and as the artist says, “perpetually reoccurring human folly.” His paintings provide an escape to the calm and serenity of the present moment. The viewer finds their own meaning in confronting these minimal paintings.
