VideoChannel - video project environments

launched a new videoart project, entitled "MOTHER"
and invites video and film creators for participating and contributing.

--->imagine, your mother is dying and you face her death coming closer and the radical definitiveness, eventually she died already and the processes of memory find slowly their shape, or you have found already the balance of memory telling, for you, she will never be dead and live in your heart as long as you live, eventually you left your familiy and are living far away from your mother, but eventually you live close to your mother, but the course of life events is blocking any contacting.....<----
--->VideoChannel always tried to bring a very personal note into the otherwise anonymous online enviroment via its videoart projects related to "memory & identity", and the subject of "Mother" is particularly intimate and personal <-----

"Mother" as a theme refers in first place to everybody's mother or grandmother, the relation of a mother and their children or child, and how people, in general, or the creator in particular deal with the loss of a mother.
Every human being is a child of a mother, without the mother, there is no family , no tribe, no people, no society, no social future, but "mother" can be interpreted also in different ways, the language uses "mother" in electronics for instance in "motherboard", or in a figurative sense as the roots or basics of being.
