::CHECKTHISPECKER:: EXCESSIVE MACHINE
Feat. Kirk Spencer - Enter the Void EP
v.01 Exhibition, QUAD, Derby, UK.
::EXCESSIVE MACHINE:: was an interactive installation from ::CHECKTHISPECKER:: a collective of live visual performers; an amalgamation of professional graphic, illustration, video and media artists. Featuring custom built projection screens, original visual material and the music of Nottingham producer / artist Kirk Spencer.
Our challenge was to create a robust system that allowed enough interaction, with any limitations remaining unobtrusive. The main obstacles being processing power for the visuals and implementing effective controls; that made sense without requiring any prior knowledge or training of the gallery visitors. There’s no way this could have worked if it was designed with VJs in mind - it allowed everyone to interact with it and be aesthetically pleasing, on even its most simple levels.
Music: Kirk Spencer - Phantom [Taken from Enter the Void EP].
Additional Camera: Sam Jordan
