While YouTube comments follow this contextual logic also, the frequent use of the word talent can be understood in an entirely different way. Expressed in this writing style are not least the difculties of formulating aesthetic criticism, since what is needed here is not just talent, but also knowledge, practice and work that go beyond spontaneous expressions of approval or disapproval. Seen in this way, it is much less an omnipresent excellence and talent scouting perpetuated amongst the users; rather, talent is used as a basically empty signier whenever the writer is at a loss for words, whenever an aesthetic critique cannot be formulated. Series of exclamation points or the repetition of a single letter often also point to the void of not having anything substantial to say: Rock it cutie!!!!!!!!! , Hmmmmmmmmmm ... Comments thus stand in the context of a subjectication that takes place through the expression of thrill, agreement or rejection.

The Life of Things

The rough, para-industrial setup, the processes put in motion as well as the materials used inevitably recall many of the key elements of modern sculpture, conceptual art and other avant-garde practices, notably (but not only) from the post-WW II period: the concern for balance and suspension (Suprematism and Constructivism); assemblage art (from the late 1940s); kinetic art (from the 1950s and 60s); trash objects, garbage and recycled materials (from New Realism and Pop); ready-mades and small wasted energies made useful (Marcel Duchamp); and finally, the energies inherent in apparently inert matter from the work of Carl Andre, not to forget the macho-engineering skills of 12 13 Form

Adding Transitions between Clips

Transition effects, widely used in video editing software like Windows Movie Maker, appear when one slide/clip replaces another one, improving your video editing skills. Movie Maker offers numerous transition styles including Diagonals, Dissolves, Patterns and Shapes, Reveals, Shatters, etc. But, do you know how to use Microsoft Movie Maker to add transitions between clips? The steps as follows: Select the clip to which you wish to add a transition. After selecting, you will find a blurred highlighted square.. Click the Animations tab on the ribbon toolbar to bring up the dozens of transition choices. Select the desired transition effect. You can hover your mouse over it to see what it looks like in the Preview window before selecting. Then, Movie Maker 2012 will automatically add the transition between the beginning of the selected clip and the end of the previous clip. You are able to adjust the duration of the transition from a quarter of a second to two seconds.

Took 606 takes to get right: Honda spoof

A third point, worth highlighting because it brings the Honda Cog and Der Lauf der Dinge in line not only with each other, but aligns them with major issues in film studies and film theory, is that both are the work of bona fide filmmakers. I already highlighted this in my comments on the Honda Cog and its proximity to the Hollywood blockbuster, but it is worth pointing out that Der Lauf der Dinge only exists as a film/videotape: it is not the filmic record of a performance of machinic self-destruction, but an event staged specifically for the camera. The mise-en-scne in each case is that of an auteur director, who decides exactly where to place the camera, when to move it, how to 14 1 Form


Yes, it is a very long video. Still, the smart thing with this concept is that Spotify manages to simplify a complex process and at the same time provide liveliness to it with a voice-over and simple illustrations.

Kutiman mixes YouTube: funky mashup site

Another option YouTube offers are the so-called embedded links that facilitate integration of YouTube videos into all types of other environments, from personal websites and amateur or professional blogs to the online services of traditional media such as newspapers, magazines and television channels. YouTube even explicitly encourages such embeddings, as is evidenced by the proposed links to several other Web 2.0 platforms.12 The YouTube database, in other words, is accessible not only through the one interface that Google manages itself. While surfing the Internet, a user can encounter moving images branded with the companys logo almost anywhere. When a video has been watched through an embedded link, the viewer is offered the possibility of looking at so-called related material, too. The user can thus navigate the database from an external site also, albeit with fewer options. The YouTube database, however, does not only consist of video files, but also contains titles, brief descriptions called info, tags, hyperlinks to the uploaders site or to related material, as well as user comments of variable, and sometimes quite extensive, proportions. In addition, it stores data concerning the number of views, popularity ratings, flagging rates, recursive links and other kinds of statistical information. In fact, video retrieval and management depend fundamentally upon such user-generated input provided as text. Since moving-image files are not machine-readable meaning that the program cannot identify the semantic content of this kind of file information management relies on metadata that names, describes or categorizes whatever there is to be seen. This is an essentially hybrid constellation, since users provide semantic input, which the machine then processes algorithmically, producing different types of clustering with a corresponding organization of video files and metadata.13 Ultimately, this technological infrastructure can be seen as a specific affordance enabling new forms of media practice. In a way, thus, understanding YouTube means describing it in terms of a hybrid interaction where humans and machines users and information management systems are inextricably linked. One could also refer to the approach formulated by the so-called Actor-Network theory, according to which human and non-human actors have to be considered equally important in the constitution of social interaction.14 As the way in which YouTube and other Web 2.0 applications such as Flickr, Facebook and other function depends fundamentally on the way in which they succeed in channeling user activities into software design, one could describe them in terms of what Tim OReilly addressed as architecture of participation, which is also in a way akin to Bruno Latours analyses of translations of social protocols 2 2 Storage
