Stream-of-Consciousness Movie

Flickeur (pronounced like Voyeur), by Mario Klingemann, randomly retrieves images from Flickr.com and creates an infinite film with a style that can vary between stream-of-consciousness, documentary or video clip. All the blends, motions, zooms or timeleaps are completely random. Flickeur works like a looped magnetic tape where incoming images will merge with older materials and be influenced by the older recordings' magnetic memory. The virtual tape will also play and record forward and backward to create another layer of randomness. This principle will create its own sometimes very suggestive or scary story. It might take a few minutes until the tape has accumulated enough material to not show any empty screens anymore.

Flickeur is part of the NET.ART section at Art Tech Media 06 which can be seen in various museums across Spain in 2006.
