Video and Sound
Anders is an artist working in video, sound, new media and installations and he is primarily concerned with identity. The human body lies at the root of projects that formally and conceptually chart identity and its construction as a preamble to broaching matters of violence, genders, memory, loss or ideology in which personal experiences co-exists with references to popular culture, the media and consumerism. Specializing in digital technologies, he aims to mix genres and ways of expression to explore the potential of audio visual media.
He coined the term Peer-to-peer art or (p2p art) in 2006. Art made for – and only available on – the peer to peer networks. The original artwork is first shared by the artist until one other user has downloaded it. After that the artwork will be available for as long as other users share it. The original file and all the material used to create it are deleted by the artist. ”There’s no original”. Six films with a duration between 45 minutes and 9 hours have been uploaded on the file sharing networks in one copy and their original have been deleted. P2P Art – The aesthetics of ephemerality.
Also the founder and curator for the Stian [con]temporary art gallery.
Currently based in the small village Kölleröd in the south of Sweden and has exhibited at numerous art/film festivals, galleries, and museums internationally, including:

Park Chan-wook latest film is a 30-minute short called “Paranmanjang,” which is Korean for “Ups and Downs.”
Mr. Park says:
“From hunting for a film location, shooting auditions, to doing a documentary on the filming process, everything was shot with the iPhone 4,”
“We went through all the same film-making processes except that the camera was small.”
The short is a fantastical tale that begins with a middle-aged man fishing one afternoon and then, hours later at night, catches the body of a woman. The panicked man tries to undo the intertwined fishing line, but he gets more and more entangled. He faints, then wakes up to find himself in the white clothes that the woman was wearing. The movie’s point of view then shifts to the woman and it becomes a tale of life and death from a traditional Korean point of view.

After taking a dive into depression, still in there…am I? I don’t know…
Anyways, this very short film is made possible thanks TO MY depression/slash fucked up mental state that I am in till today (Oct-23-2010). I shot most of the footage at night. I could not sleep, again till this day.
Why? Personal. Let’s just say, a priceless possession of mine got snatched away.
Do I need to start a club inspired by Chuck Palahniuk?
My nights are simple. Go out in the cold, shoot, coffee, tea, edit, sleep for 2 hours, wake up and go to work. Repeat.
However, after completing this very short film, for some reason, I can’t keep up while trying to write this post…
Am I cured?
I see the world in black and white.
Bus ride. Elevator. Buildings. Isolation. Fuck friend, who really fucks with passion, then go for a ride to shoot more footage.
I have no explanation for this short film other than, I have chosen the footage with the approval of my mental state. Simple as that.
Got questions? Shoot ‘em away, I’ll try to answer them all.
Colorful days are yet to come…by then, who knows, I may project an other one and this time you might have to buy a ticket.

Taken from the description:
The video was entirely shot on a Nokia N8 phone in 720p at 25 frames per second.
Track is from Garage Band.
The video function of the Nokia N8 is really impressive and the image quality very detailed considering it is “only” a phone. Not so surprising since the N8 is using a Carl Zeiss optic.
I first planned to only shoot by executing slow movements and from a certain distance to avoid pushing the sensor to its limits but i ended up shooting with some surprisingly great results, very close to the subjects and with fast movements, especially when mounted on the Steadicam.
Thanks a lot to all the riders, Jordan Berthet, Flo Saint Simon, Basile Duterte, Morgann Lahaie and Florian Haffner.
