"An immediate form of creating image and sound, a play on the possibilities offered by the film projectors, a use of mechanical machines in performance, discover what you can do with multiple projectors running simultaneously.
Performances with multiple projectors offer artist-filmmakers the opportunity to expand their spectrum of lumino-pictorical techniques. With modified 16mm projectors, conventional tools become personal instruments for transforming images loops of pure black and white into immersive perceptual phenomenons. Abstract forms and strobe pulsing on the screen slowly transform when adding additional projectors, overlays creating strange halos, bizarre 3D expansions and contractions. When more projectors are added, there occurs an intense sensory overload of light, sound and color."
Led by Floris Van Hoof (Antwerpen)
Media Archaeologist, Floris Vanhoof deliberately chooses the analogue technology, not for nostalgic reasons, but because he wants to experiment with what was once considered high-tech. His work also includes new technologies such as micro-processors. Technology is not an end in itself but a means to explore new images, ideas and poetically sounds.
Do not hesitate to watch the performance of Floris Vanhoof at the festival cable#, Saturday, Feb. 20, at the Bitche workshops!
This workshop is offered as part of the European cooperation project RE MI in collaboration with WORM.Filmwerkplaats and LaborBerlin.
