Turkish multimedia artist Erdal Inci experiments with cloned motion in video to create awesomely hypnotic looping videos and gifs of himself moving through public spaces, sometimes carrying lights or other objects. Depending on the exposure, Inci sometimes appears to be no more than a shadow or isn’t visible at all, making his videos even more mysterious and dreamlike.

He states: “I realized that if you clone a recorded performance contiguously it will become perpetual. So that you can see all the time phases of the same performance in a small amount of time like 1 or 2 seconds. This gives you the chance of thinking like a choreographer with a mass crew or painter who fills its frame not in forms and colour but motion. At this point I could tell I am inspired by patterns in traditional arts & crafts , dance and repetition. Motion, performance and real environments are the outlines of the work.”

absolutely love this! #government #wakeupnow #openminds

There is no power in walking away.
The power is in approaching the problem head-on. Peacefully and with careful and quick communication. There is no time to waste, ever. I mean, why waste….? This seems like a propaganda cartoon teaching people to walk away from the “problem” offered by a politician.

Controllers, abusers and manipulative people don’t question themselves. They don’t ask themselves if the question is them. They always say the problem is someone else.

Then it must be unfortunate that this is no longer secret from them? They may choose to appear like you now. And more easily control and abuse and manipulate you. On the internet, nothing is private. Technology is changing the world. Trying to increase the ease of communication may backfire into people sharing that which must not be shared for their own safety.
We’re all actors in a role. What do we understand about the plot and how does that affect our performance?

I’ve reached another level of work.

Next week, I have eight shifts.
The catch? I also have two and a half days off.

I know at least a couple coworkers really dislike me
but the senior managers pretty much love me.

or maybe not; I’m not going to pretend to understand what other people are thinking. Am I going to get fired? Or am I going to quit?

I definitely don’t plan on staying here.
