ESSEX ROAD 5: Eight contemporary artists interpret a very particular part of London

Tintype’s ESSEX ROAD project has reached its landmark fifth birthday. A popular and much anticipated local event, the annual commissions are now recognised for their significance within the ecology of moving image arts in the UK – enabling eight artists each year to make new work. Over the past five years, Tintype has commissioned and produced 40 artists’ films, which are back-projected into the gallery’s window and viewed from the street as a form of public art. The driving force behind the project is the desire to work with outstanding artists, producing new work that is shown in an unusual context. Whilst the brief is very simple – to make a short film that responds to one London street, Essex Road – the results have been astonishingly diverse. Turning a prism onto a very specific locale has, perhaps counter-intuitively, encouraged a magnificently

Arc de Triomphe to reopen after Paris protest damage

The soaring Arc de Triomphe at the top of the Champs-Elysees in Paris will reopen Wednesday after being covered in graffiti and ransacked during anti-government protests which rocked the capital on December 1, the French monuments commission said. The arc, under which lies the tomb of the unknown soldier, commemorating France's war dead, has been a focal point of the "yellow vest" rallies against fuel tax increases and the cost of living which began on November 17. But the demonstrations degenerated into daylong clashes with police early this month, with protesters spray-painting the arc with slogans such as "the yellow vests will win." The protesters later managed to break into the monument where they smashed sculptures and display cases in an underground gallery and snatched commemorative medals and other items.

Cally Spooner’s second solo exhibition with ZERO… on view in Milan

In experimental physics, dead time is the time that a measuring detector uses, after receiving an external impulse, to perform a new survey. For detection systems that record discrete events, such as particle and nuclear detectors, the dead time is the time after each event during which the system is not able to record another event. It is the instant immediately following a stimulus during which a device is insensitive to further stresses. This is also the case for the flash of a camera, which takes a few seconds to recharge between one shot and the next. Dead Time is also a synonym for downtime. Downtime means that a system or service is not working at a given time. The term is usually used in discussions about the provision of information technology systems or services. Downtime is also known as idle time. Business managers and those in positions

Roving cinema plays public service role in Central Africa

A giant screen flickers to life in a remote village in the equatorial forest of the Central African Republic. Some 200 villagers avidly take in an evening of films thanks to a travelling cinema team with the dual goal of entertaining and enlightening. Ambulant Digital Cinema (CNA) brought its show to the southwestern village of Bayanga along bumpy rutted tracks, aiming to reach people living in remote parts of a deeply poor country scarred by violence. "Some people are astounded when they see a car, so imagine what it's like when we're projecting films," said Serge Mbilika, a state television journalist who brought CNA into the light of day in April 2018. Silence falls across the clearing among the mango trees once a presenter announces the first film, her voice rising over birdsong and the chirping of crickets. Then a booming voice surprises the audience.
