Shredded money

Shredded money, 2008 by Christodoulos Panayiotou.

The dune-like installation (5 meter hight and 7 meters diameter) consists of shredded bank notes. Following an agreement with the Central Bank of Cyprus, shredded Cypriot pounds were collected in January 2008 when the country entered the Eurozone. The work which represents the whole wealth of the Island at this transitional moment comments on the charged historical moment and the specific symbolic value of the cypriot currency.

Jørgen Leth: The Perfect Human

Jørgen Leth is a Danish poet and film director who is considered a leading figure in experimental documentary film making.the most notable are his epic documentary A Sunday in Hell (1977) and his surrealistic short film The Perfect Human (1967).

The Perfect Human (Danish: Det perfekte menneske) is a 1967 short film by Jørgen Leth lasting 13 minutes. It depicts a man and a woman, both labelled 'the perfect human' in a detached manner, "functioning" in a white boundless room, as though they were subjects in a zoo.

This is in my mind a masterpiece, one of the finest short films of all time. I have found the translated English version which i hope you enjoy.

SUPERFLEX is a Danish artists' group founded and directed by Jakob Fenger, Rasmus Nielsen and Bjørnstjerne Christiansen.
It has been working since 1993 on a series of projects related to economic forces, democratic production conditions and self-organisation.
The artists have examined alternative energy production methods (Supergas) and commodity production in Brazil, Thailand and Europe in their projects, which both expose and question the existing economic structures. These artistic activities — as, for example, the on-going project Guarana Power, in which the artists developed a drink together with local farmers who cultivate the caffeine-rich berries of the guarana plant — are not necessarily opposed to commercialism and globalisation, but try instead to render economic structures visible and to establish a new balance.

Chris Marker: La jatée

Chris Markers still powerful 1962 post-apocalyptic short film, with its classic anagnorisis finale. Produced entirely with still photographs, music and voice-over narration, it portrays a horrifying future world and the melancholic vision of a man consumed with nostalgic love for a dead woman he saw as child. Becoming the subject of the subterranean totalitarian governments attempt to throw emissaries into time, to call past and future to the rescue of the present, he just might have a chance to see her once again.
