Video Documentation of the installations on view for "Thresholds: new works by Ray Sweeten & Lisa Gwilliam (aka DataSpaceTime), Oct 19 through Dec 1, 2013
THRESHOLDS is, the second solo exhibition of works by the artistic pair Ray Sweeten and Lisa Gwilliam, also known as DataSpaceTime. The artists – whose collaborations to date have centered around works utilizing the QR code – continue their exploration of the culture of informatics and the thresholds of visual perception and recognition with new browser-based installation works disrupting the aesthetic and processes of video and animated gifs.
Both works in THRESHOLDS utilize original videos recorded by the artists that have been deconstructed into as many as 25,000 animated gifs and then reassembled across a grid of phasing pivot points to create moving image works that play in browser windows (not through video playback devices).
This video includes short excerpts from video documentation of the following installations in action::
"the _______ of strings and objects"
multi-browser-based animated gif installation, 25 min
"if (an index) is occupied;"
browser-based animated gif installation, 10 min
