Siafu | New York | 2011 | 2m 05s
video animation | color | sound


NSA Case RF#00190768 codenamed "Siafu" is a radio transmission received and decrypted by the NSA in July 1987. The highly classified document was leaked by a housewife who unwittingly threw out her former husband's possessions, a former NSA agent who formerly firmly believed the tapes to be extraterrestrial pornography of some sort. This conclusion has not been verified as of yet. The "Siafu" transmission followed the descrambling of the previous radio signal codenamed "Siam", which contained several similar anomalies including peaked frequency aberration in the 10-15nm range, resulting in the characteristic "voices" to be heard in these tapes. "Siam" however, does not include the accompanying visual elements found in "Siafu", which is the result of decoding and interpreting telltale "frank overarching nodes" of what can only assumed to be OVV and BL Lac activity from the source star, radio jet 3C273.

Jack Kubizne is an animator, video artist and director who makes his home in Brooklyn, NY.  A symbiotic relationship between moving image and sound is the main thread which runs through his work, which include experimental videos, music videos, live video performance and VJing. He attended Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY, graduating in 2010 with a Film BFA in Traditional Animation. He toured internationally with the band Animal Collective, performing their live visuals in 2009 and directing his first music video for them shortly thereafter. He continues to direct videos and hone his live performance skills while searching for the perfect synthesis of digital and organic moving image, intent on hypnotizing and inciting a "meditative" state in his viewers.
