Bio: Mike Celona is a Media Artist and VJ from Rochester, NY whose work has been shown around the world at festival, museum and gallery exhibitions over the past 15 years. In addition to exploring the unique textural and technical properties of the video medium itself through synthesis and live manipulation, he is also keen on remixing found footage as a form of media ecology that breathes new life into otherwise neglected, forgotten and/or discarded found images by constructing surreal improvised collage narratives that give them renewed context in the present.
Sinopsis: A Sequence of gradually evolving deconstructions of the animated Legendary Pictures production company logo meant as a relatively concise demonstration of the art of video remixing through the utilization of a familiar source clip. The underlying audio soundscape was also constructed from modified loops of the original sound that accompanied the video source sample.
