29th minute: Nelly-Ève Rajotte - 'Olla'
59th minute: Peter Eudenbach’s - 'Streetcorner Solitude (for Glenn Gould) '

Year Zero One is pleased to present TRANSMEDIA :29:59, a year long exhibition on the pedestrian level video billboard at Yonge-Dundas Square in downtown Toronto. Launched August 1st 2005, TRANSMEDIA :29:59 features one minute video works 24/7 every half hour on the 29th and 59th minutes.

Featured for the month of May is Nelly-Ève Rajotte's 'Olla' and Peter Eudenbach 's 'Streetcorner Solitude (for Glenn Gould) '.

Nelly-Ève Rajotte's Olla incorporates imagery that is generally split or superimposed before melting again into another frame. The artist transforms the images, reducing them to their formal components and compressing them at times into horizontal bands. A play on form progressively stretches across the surface of the screen, allowing us to follow the modification of the images collated from reality by the artist. The original motif is at times indistinguishable by the eye, but retained by the memory.

Peter Eudenbach’s Streetcorner Solitude (for Glenn Gould) Is a silent homage to Glenn Gould, pianist, experimental musician, and hunter/gatherer of sound. This video collage is meant to coexist with the ambient sounds of Yonge-Dundas Square.
