8807 - Videopoetry: One approach to audiovisual practice, technologies and poetics in Argentina

This presentation examines the relation between technological poetics and film creations studying the approaches to produce discursive forms using video as a field of experimentation. The use of this medium as a resource has a no preestablished formats. This emergent phenomenon creates new pieces that can be watched on a screen or that can require displacements and intervention from its viewers. For addressing any productive practice, we take the Greek concept of Techne, proposed by Vilem Flusser, from which derives the word technology. The machine it is offered to the Subject like an open system in which s/he can find the possibility of action and redefinition of the worlds where s/he lives. It is important to understand this relation between art, poetry and technique from different theoretical angles, such us audiovisual design, poetics strategies and media circuits.

This paper opens questions about strategies that relate filmmaking practices with new forms of expression. For doing this videopoetry will be taken as a key genre of analysis, since embodies specific resources that allow us to study not only the visual art practice, but also the symbolic expression of technologies and the particular way of reading that each user has about it. This presentation will analyze examples of Argentinean artists such us Ivan Marino, Carlos Trilnick and Luis Campos; but also how poetry it is used on film narratives to create identity, for example Balnearos, documentary by Mariano Llinás.

Videopoetry can be considered as a medium to recognize issues concerning discourses around technological poetics as an indeterminate discipline field, where creative processes and power can be examine.
