Making the invisible visible
Everything all at once
Loop until the end
Patrick Grizzard and I are doing a video installation for our PComp Final.
Here’s the description we submitted for the show:
Video installation that projects the viewers body into a virtual cinema audience that functions as a trace or index of previous viewers.
Video installation within a recreated cinema setting that combines live & recorded video. Using projector, screen, theater seat, ambient lighting, four curtains, video camera, audio. Viewer sits in chair triggering lighting fade and video recording. Video feed is composited with recorded video of previous occupants of the seat, transposing the viewer into a virtual audience onscreen. The “virtual” audience will also be semi-transparent (ghost-like), appearing and reappearing randomly in different seats. The video will be accompanied by sound composed of samples of effects and audio from various films.
Nonduality. Duality. Being in two places at once. What creates a feeling of connection or disconnection? How is your experience similar or different from others? Experiencing something privately that will later become part of other people’s private experiences. The experience is both shared and personal.
