Project Description

Title: Panta rhei “everything flows”

Materials: interactive video installation on a mixed media screen
A series of intaglio prints were brought into the digital platform to investigate the boundaries of technology and traditional hand processes. The intaglio print process allows us to record layers upon layers of marks on a single flat surface. The prints become a recorded history of the exploration of this process. Rather then present the audience with static prints we wanted to give the audience an opportunity to explore the stages of the plate as it evolves. The digital platform allows the audience to interact with the layers in a dynamic, fluid, and non-linear manner. While we have created the structure for the work, ultimately the audience will conduct the constant flux of imagery in the projection.

Programmed in MaxMSP, the Kinect controller allows three participants to control the position, zoom, and overlay of the plate stages.
