A linear narrative through time propelled by the vision of other cinematographers captured moment by moment, conceived and edited by Italian artist Stefania Rota.
With a simple and elegant gesture Rota’s Cinezoïque presents humans, regardless of age, gender, or context, moving forward.

I have been traveling through my portfolio and documenting my work, here’s how to create images similar to this feather. I highly recommend trying alternative photography processes.
Substrate: I used cold press acid-free watercolor paper
Chemistry: Liquid Light http://www.rockaloid.com/products.html
For the meticulous folk with professional darkroom access
- Coat the paper with Liquid Light in a dark room using a nylon brush, they’re easier to clean.
- Let the paper dry completely.
- Place the object on the paper
- Expose to a light with appropriate time (check the Liquid Light box for details)
- Develop using standard developer and fixer baths.
If you’re feeling frisky and want to put some of the process to chance:
- Coat the paper in the pitch black at home
- Let it dry
- Place paper in an opaque bag with the object sitting on the paper and walk outside
- Pull the paper with the object on top out of the bag and place it in the sun. Count a few seconds, and go develop it according to the instructions on the bottle.
If you get a black piece of paper with no image, shorten the time in the sun
I was finishing up my thesis at Cornell University and taking double loads of classes in art and cognitive psychology in addition to Spanish. Note the lightsaber, Motorola v200 (Awesome for texting, but the speaker broke 3 times and I swapped out for Nokia 3660 the first camera phone in the US) and various cords and a gigantor thermal wax printer (which I still own).
Enjoy the ten-year Wayback Machine, with a surprise popup of Pete Ippel 2002…and yes all the images were shot with a Sony Mavica 640×480 px and written to a 3.5″ floppy disk.
So this is where the magic happened…lots of Mt. Dew Code Red, sleeping under my desk with a blanket and the computer fan blowing hot air on me to stay warm…then waking up to go to drawing class at 9am, grabbing a strawberry Pop-Tart on the way…
Thank you goes to all my friends and collaborators who provided wonderful support and helped me finish my Thesis “Priorities” on time.
I read Mr. Wilson’s Cabinet Of Wonder: Pronged Ants, Horned Humans, Mice on Toast, and Other Marvels of Jurassic Technology while enrolled in the San Francisco Art Institute New Genres Masters Program back in 2003, and today I finally had the opportunity to check out MJT in person. I particularly enjoyed the motorized rotating bell wheel installed on the first floor. Take a listen: Ambient Sound From the Museum of Jurassic Technology, Culver City, California
I also enjoyed sipping on hot tea with lemon and sugar while contemplating the view from the roof. The babbling fountain and the bird cages integrated into the columbarium are very appropriate touches.
I highly recommend checking out this hidden bastion of conceptual art especially if you appreciate detail, like reading, have an active imagination and a penchant for steam-punkery, even before it was cool. For more information contact The Museum of Jurassic Technology.
Enjoy the hot cut from the floor of the Blue Room, 2002
Cynical and DJZN Live – Fantastic Cutting and scratching with no slide mixer on my side…Yea I’m the platinum blonde…it’s a down-tempo jam with a ton of layers and a lot of back cueing with a knob, turntables run through analog guitar pedals…enjoy.
