Video Culture 1.1 @ Staro Riga Festival of Light 14 – 18 Nov
Video Culture 1.1 installation at Staro Riga Festival of Light. A projection-mapped video installation developed using generative feedback systems, lasers and isadora and masks modelled on the Art Academy Lativa.
This is the first proper manifestation of an idea that’s been rattling around me head for 4/5 years, and that I began to prototype recently at Digital Media Labs in Barrow.
Video Culture 1.1 presents recordings of several experiments using live systems to ‘grow’ video feedback. Using a combination of lasers and colour tracking systems, the artist has cultivated 3 independent but competing strands of analogue video feedback, allowing them to evolve before our eyes. These feedback experiments have been modelled on the geometry of the facade of the Art Academy of Latvia, with the final recordings projected back on to the building itself.
