The Armadillo and Other Stories

BY BETTINA HUTSCHEK
@ VOL 3 ON JUN 20, 2014

Bettina Hutschek's artistic practice is set on multi-disciplinary research and thus generates various forms: essay films, book works or performances. Always based on observations from reality and on narrative practices, she juxtaposes layers of fiction and reality in order to create “transitory spaces” - these transits procreate mental spaces and mythological narrations. Put shortly: she tells stories.

"Presentation of the Day" on January 7, 2015.

Time and Interaction

BY PIPPIN BARR
@ VOL 3 ON JUN 20, 2014

Video game maker, critic, and professor Pippin Barr speaks on the interactive medium of games, and how the concept of time is exhibited within the medium. From games where you must complete a number frenetic tasks lest your character die, to those where your character is sentenced to 100 real-life years in prison (i.e. we will never live to see what happens at the end of his sentence), Pippin demonstrates the power interactivity can have over our thoughts on time.

Dancing into Intellectual Property Law

BY JEANINE RIZZO
@ VOL 1 ON OCT 24, 2013

Jeanine Rizzo began her life as a dancer, but soon pirouetted her way into a field of law that would allow her to protect the things she holds most dear: the arts. She speaks of trademarks, copyrights, patents, and more in reference to film, theater, and art.

Building a Picture

BY AIDEN CELESTE
@ VOL 1 ON OCT 24, 2013

As a child, Aiden Celeste had always wanted to be an architect, but his life drove him to the field of research art. He discusses the process, theory, and execution of what he calls "building a picture" -- through the oculus of a camera obscura, he finds himself in a unique and wonderful otherworld. The results of his exploits are conjoined and overlapped to form something greater than a singular piece.

The Armadillo and Other Stories

Did you know? Malta’s capital Valletta was designed, built, and fortified in the shape of an armadillo.*
Artist Bettina Hutschek juxtaposes layers of fiction and reality to create unique “transitory spaces”. In “The Armadillo and Other Stories” from PKN Valletta Vol. 3, she details her desire to mix little lies with non-fiction. Here she speaks about her interest in an amazing animal species: the armadillo.
*Okay this is all part of the story.
