The legacy of Nam June Paik and the “electronic superhighway” is at the heart of a new exhibition being held in London from 4 – 6 November 2013 at the Old Billingsgate Building, City of London.
Very honoured to part of this exhibition I exhibited the Laser Zoopraxiscope and made the forth edition of the Laser Image projector mounted on a quad copter, whilst being in person during the exhibition to discuss the project and the audiences relationship to the image.
Following on from the Chasing Nimbus residency from 2012 commissioned by Abandon Normal Devices Festival and the Octopus Collective, The Octopus collective invited me back to to further the research and present the findings at this years Full Of Noises festival. The serendipity of this residency came at a fortuitous time with Project Nimbus, specifically having a stumbling block of needing hard cash to test out a theory of Dr. Mike Nix of a new lens system on the Laser Zoopraxiscope to give us a 90% brighter image. And Oh my word…
Working with Delphine Perrot in our 2nd collaboration as DD we got a mention in the NY Times with our project ‘The Look’ for the LUMEN festival on Staten Island. We explored the film ‘King Kong’ (1933), set in NY by extracting the eyes of Kong, we asked the viewer to revisit their cinematic memories of the beast through one of the most predominant forms of how humans recognise one other and reveal emotion. We wanted to show the romantic side to one of cinema’s well known beasts and by focusing on the eyes, a prime part of how we recognise each other as humans.
