Static Mirror installation for Hidden Door festival

I have a pleasure to announce that I am a part of the Hidden Door Festival - the event is happening during this weekend at Roxy Art Club, Edinburgh.

I got commissioned to make an interactive installation that I've called Static Mirror. So, if you're Edinburger – come along to see the exceptional maze full of art and bands performing live, otherwise just enjoy my piece on-line.

If you're looking for a deeper meaning, please read the artist's statement.

Coming out of the underground club, Tomek brings the idea of interactive VJing into a gallery space by confronting visitors with the imagination they might have about themselves.
He asks the old question – “Do our bodies exist for real or are we just a bunch of particles bound together by invisible forces as a temporal form of expression?”
The answer could be found by observing the nature of static noise reflection – as long as you move, you are.

On a technical note, the piece uses my HiSlope (alpha) video processing engine (shortly available as open-source.)

  1. Very cool. HiSlope is looking very impressive. I had wanted to make it along to the show, but with my broken leg I'm not going anywhere for a while longer yet! Best of luck with it :)

  2. Can't make it up to the festival from London so it's great to be able to see these things online too; thanks. This is awesome work :)

    Excitedly looking forward to the HiSlope release ever since your Jackson post, give me a shout if you need any beta-testers.

    Warm Regards,

    Rob
