W..., 2001, Dvd, 6’15“
Ali Demirel works with video and visualisation of large-scale electronic music events. Demirel uses repetition as the pattern of his video works, the polarization effect onto the images work as underlining the every small move, step, meaning production of a movement, speech, act. W... is a piece produced just after 9/11 took place in New York. The work being produced six years ago still carries its contemporariness and significance. The war the attempts or committing crimes are underlined through repetition of the speech hold by W. Bush about the war that already took place. The comment made in the past brought up to the present of 2001 implying the fact that the war is not over at all. Only the geographical positioning of cold war is due to change. The images appearing as cut out clips of actual news are displayed in a fragmented state as the sound is structured to imply the veining effect.
