Video Networks is a research project consisting of the development of an electronic interface system for enabling the creation of networked or connected video based art works and the works produced with this system. It's purpose is to explore the potential of creating works which are cinematic in nature yet break away from fixed linear narratives to explore concepts such as montage, collage, mixing, rhythm, looping, non-linearity in combination with simple interactivity in real time.

The interface system employs a combination of reverse engineered inexpensive consumer electronics and some custom hardware to enable devices such as DVD players, monitors, video cameras, projectors etc. to communicate, in effect network and influence each other.

The first work employing the prototype system, entitled Dialogues, is a two channel video installation conceived and created by artists Garrett Lynch (asquare.org/) and Frédérique Santune (saturne-feerique.net/) which explores ideas of exploration, mapping and translation will be followed by subsequent thematic explorations using the interface system.

Video Networks has been partially funded by Canterbury Christ Church University and has been developed in cooperation with the Department of Electronics at the University of Kent.

The video here shows an extract of the video created by Garrett Lynch. For more information please visit the website.
