Takahiko Iimura has been a pioneer Japanese artist of experimental film and video since 1960. Residing in both Tokyo and New York, Iimura has had numerous exhibitions in Japan, the US, and Europe. One of his early films, ONAN, was awarded Special Prize at the legendary Brussels International Experimental Festival. Recently, he has been working with computers, publishing multimedia CD-ROMs and DVDs of his films, videos, graphics, texts, as well as photographic works. Perhaps the most enigmatic figure in avant-garde cinema/video, Takahiko Iimura mediates Zen spirituality and technology with playful irony.

For this unique workshop to be held at no.w.here, Iimura will be exploring how participants can make time visible in film, (without photography), using markers of different colors and sizes, long and fat needles, clear and black 16mm film. The workshop will include screenings of original Iimura prints sourced from the Lux, (to whom our thanks are due), including;

24 Frames Per Second 1975
One Frame Duration 1977
2 Min. 46 Sec. 16 Frames (100 Feet) 1972
Timed 1, 2, 3 1972
(Timing 1,2,3,4 1972)
(Timelength 1,2,3,4 1972)
