Sinopsis: An experimental abstract piece cultivated from three different live production sessions in which synthesized video images produced with Paracosm’s Lumen software were transferred to VHS tape, remixed through a circuit-bent Tachyons+ analog video processor and then subsequently reremixed back into a computer using Arkaos GrandVJ software. The title alludes to the signals going back and forth between digital and analog manipulations before arriving at the final composition as well as the solar/planetary images that emerge from the abstractions. Music: DG13817 by Production Unit Xero
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.
