Landscape 0 (a sampling machine)

Found on Rhizome.org, this piece by Giselle Beiguelman is both technically and creatively excellent: a flash-powered tableu for remixing a catalog of images, sounds, clips, and texts, allfrom the social, political, environmental, and creative landscape of northeastern Brazil. In taking these almost atomic elements of a local millieu into a database, she creates a post-narrative epic of place. The tension between the futurity of the media and the ambiguity of the modernisms of the south is recast by each participant.
