Select Media Festival is pleased to present several works made by Chicago
media artists Brien Rullman, David Rowley, Dave Reynolds, Jon Krussel,
The Center for Audio-Visual Research presents: "Induction Program:
A Primer". A prototype DVD constructed to allow users previously
unfamiliar with CAVR material to assimilate quickly and enter into a simple
dialog with the "program". Each user will discover their own
"style of participation" and advance their familiarity with
CAVR. Using a standard DVD interface users achieve exciting personal goals
via several belief systems, within a non-theatening environment.
Audio direction courtesy of Mr. Faulty Analogy and His Invisible Orchestra;
DVD re-structuring by GlassCapsule. further information at centerforaudiovisualresearch.org
DEATHSENTENCES OF THE POLISHED AND STRUCTURALLY WEAK :: Large format
prints and an audio installation from Negativland's latest project
Light Language Installation by OVT Visuals / Director B$
A visual light language of shape and color constructing the dimensional
gateway for human evolution. A new language of film loops processed and
layered into a portal of light. A hyper retinal display of form composing
a new visual language. A recombiant collection of chaos and color defining
a loose language of love, fusion, and obilvion. A fresh mix of floating
light paintings reflecting modern trans-humanist forays into alternate
planes. A spectral analysis of decodified info bytes exposed to celluloid
then shot out with light . A sign, symbol, texture, pattern, image, emotion,
reflection, splinter, waste, repurposed for the future. A TRANSforming
into the singularity B$
