2008. INTERVENCIONES TV (every audiovisual work)

Audiovisual works belonging to the 2007 edition of INTERVENCIONES TV competion, which formed part of the MADRID ABIERTO 2008 program.This video was screened on Metro tv channel.




Synopsis: “…in a planet governed by women, men might even end up feeling threatened and vulnerable.”

I have redirected a series of images based on the idea of détournement, in the sense of uprooting aesthetic artefacts from their original context and diverting them towards contexts of one’s own creation. Based on the philosophy that any idea is susceptible to becoming something else, even its opposite, the entire piece would become a displacement of meaning exercise, as of the iconic and semantic elements that we attempt to dismantle.


Itziar OkarizMC CARREN + PULASKYMcCarren. 2007. static photo and voice in off. 00'56''Pulasky. 2007. static photo and voice in off. 00'41''

 McCarren is an attempt to represent a real landscape through the elements that remain on the margins of the field of vision of documentary convention. The story is a verification of a series of trivial objects that succeed one another in the landscape and are an indispensable part of a concrete experience of the place.

Pulaski establishes a connection with a place, the bridge, through the description of a past occurrence that lacks importance to any other person. It makes visible the rear part of the adverting apparatus of the billboards on the sides of the road.

They both address the subjective experience of different urban spaces.


Mabi Revuelta4 HORAS Y 56 MINUTOS2007. DVD. Colour. Pal. Estéreo. 1'54"

Internet is becoming the audiovisual home of many users, like an independent republic against conventional television. Even so, 4 hours and 56 minutes is our new television consumption record.

In the form of advertising zapping, Mabi Revuelta reflects on the future and meaning of current TV: the analogical signal against alternative on-line systems; passive advertising consumption vs. digital interaction.


Mikel Arbiza of Perros Callejeros Films   SKATEBOARDING DESDE EL CORAZÓN2006 > 2008

Second video for the company Parafernalia Skateboards ( where we can see the company’s team (Diego Doural, Blayney Hamilton and Mischa Canibal) skating with a lot of friends (Mathieu Dupuy, Dani Pérez, Samuel Dorregaray, Cristian Cortizo, Ibai Larralde, Pablo Rivera, Mateo Rotaetxe, Juanma Fernández, Iñaki Guantxe, Alain Saavedra, and others.)

The three promotional pieces ‘teasers’ presented in Madrid Abierto were specifically prepared for the competition Intervenciones TV. The long video will be finished in the course of 2008.


Andrew SeniorPUBLIC INANITY + PRIVATE INSANITY-24 HOURS2007. DV 720x576. PAL. Colour. Stéreo. 01'07''

Public Inanity reflects upon the intrusion of television into our public spaces as endlessly repeating loops of trivial content assail us from street corners. Private Insanity takes 24 hours of television and compresses both sound and images in a crescendo of sensory overload.


Maya WatanabeAUTORRES2005. 1'15". Performed by: Maya Watanabe. Camera: Martín Guerra

Autobiographical piece which borrows film dialogues which are edited, mixed and reassembled to create a narration with a new meaning.


Raúl Bajo IbáñezLA PIEL DEL LOBO2007. 3'45". Mini dv

Synopsis: " a planet governed by women, men might even end up feeling threatened and vulnerable."

La piel del lobo is a video that reflects on our concept of reality, built on the base of the images fed to us by the audiovisual media. The reality simulations gradually woven around us by the media have managed to irremissibly trap us, incapacitating us to differentiate the real, multi-form, ubiquitous and intangible reality. Trapped in this network of images, we are easy prey to its constant economic, physical, emotional and political manipulation. This video is a small contribution towards media resistance, an incitement to alter the rules of the game: the lambs will rebel, hunt the wolf down and strip its skin.


Yolanda de los BueisHIS ITV2007. PAL. 4:3. Colour Stereo. 03'18". Camera: Miles Tudor. Old man: Yolanda de los Bueis

Part I and IIIThere is a private eye in a public space.There is a public eye in a private space.There is a space that is neither private nor public.A public solitude.

Part IICertain disturbing fragments are recognised in an instant, but neither with sufficient sharpness nor time to be able to make a judgement. Their material and aesthetic features act as catalysts of desires, evoking a sense of the perverse or summoning fantasies.


Furallefalle-FAF (Vanesa Castro + Iñaki López)CUÑAS TV2003. DV. 02'13"

CUÑAS TV is an audiovisual with a positivist vision of TV.

In the form of television zapping, we find various spots and ads. The spots are of a critical and reflexive nature, on sexuality and violence on TV. The ads of an absurd advertising nature, where the everyday is sold. Thus we can see Andy Warhol advertising "garlic from La Mancha", Maria Abradelo presenting an exhibitionist child or Joe Blogs advertising his depression.
