Description of idea

Empire is a 1 minute long video sequence of still webcam images of the \"Europa Center\" - Berlin - downloaded from the web and re-processed in Italy. Audio track is a sonic montage of fields recordings from public records archives, issued on line under Creative Commons licenses, and a \"cut-up\" from several movies.
A technological - disciplinary gaze on the un-humanity of urban landscape agaist which stands the moltitude of lives, voices and desires. In this perspective Berlin is a sort of paradigm-city of a new global model crossed by conflicts and contradictions.
The critical re-use of rough materials from the \"mediascape\" against dominant representational practices is a possible answer to our condition.

About MemeTV

TV? Well, maybe. In any case its different than the tube. MemeTV is a radical moving image platform. You can browse through the years and see what are the moving image responses on our yearly festival outlines from Memefest's international community. You can also embed them in to other online platforms such as blogs or web sites and spread messages that will make people think.
