I recently finished putting together this video for Mixed Realities, an international networked art exhibition and symposium curated by Jo-Anne Green (February 7 – April 15, 2008). Mixed Realities took place at The Huret & Spector Gallery (10 Boylston Place, 6th Floor, Emerson College, Boston, Massachusetts), and online via Ars Virtua (Second Life) and Turbulence.org.
My partner‘s work The Vitruvian World was part of the exhibition, so we went up to Boston for the opening in 2008(I thought England was cold in February, sheesh), and it was a fascinating show – I love interactive artwork, being a born fiddler and button pusher!
Long after the exhibition was over, Jo-Anne approached me to ask if I could take the various images and video documents that those involved had produced and edit them into a single video document, which would be included in the Turbulence.org archive at the Rose Goldsen Archive of New Media Art, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York. As you can imagine I had all sorts of different video file types and resolutions to work with (as different people had shot different sections) as well as many images of varying size, but I think it came together quite nicely.
Here is the completed video – music and narration by Helen Thorington.
UPDATE: The video is now also up on the Turbulence website
