A Moving Montage of Video -- "Perpetual Art Machine"

There is something very interesting going on over at PAM
Take your computer and digital video camera (or video-phone perhaps) , capture some art, edit it up a little and send it to them. It all goes into the pool of collected work from other artists. The installation interactively displaying this video-montage travels around the Globe while the video is fed to it through PAM's website/infrastructure ala her collective user base & community. It's all free. They're calling for more video for an upcoming project called "Video as Urban Condition"
Get Filming - or just capturing.

Hi Chris:

Thanks for spreading the word on Perpetual Art Machine. One thing to be made clear to your readers is that PAM is for those that consider themselves video artists. I love idea of encouraging more folks to get out there to make more art.

All the best,
PAM

Pam seems like a very interesting project. I shall investigate more, but I am pretty sure Einstein would bookmark any page that can perpetually create art. Your blog is very current and informative. I likey!

Video as Urban condition is actually not a project by PAM, it is organised by Anthony Auerbach, an artist, organiser and researcher (www.vargas.org.uk/aa)
with changing collaborators.

It is not limited to self-defined video artists, but open to all videomakers. So contributions reach from home-videos over media activism, documentaries, to art videos. what they have in common is, that they share an interest in video and the city.
