  1. Media artist and computer scientist Marco Pinter approached with documentation of his installation from AC Institute gallery in NYC. As we began working with his script and raw footage I had the pleasure of learning about the concept of "object permanence". When our senses cognitively establish an object, we perceive it in space even if our senses are no longer 'recording' it.

    While editing this I likened the phenomena to "persistence of vision" which fills in our awareness of an image and it's motion even through flicker, cuts, or angle changes.

    Production: Stranirumori
    Direction, Design, Animaton: Giovanni Bucci
    Sound Design: Hoxton Lab (Marco Morano)

    Artist Antonio Meneghetti, who commissioned the work, supplied the painting as a flat image.
    The brief was free, the artwork had to be shown in art galleries and exhibitions.
    I wanted the user to live an immersive experience and decided to deconstruct the painting so the viewer could go through the artwork being reconstructed in 3D stereoscopic.

    This is the 2D version.

  3. I've been experimenting with the classic set-up of video feedback, where a live camera is pointed at it's own playback. A virtual tunnel of repeating frames results when one does this. By controlling the camera settings in very subtle ways I stumbled upon, and was able to isolate, some very rare effects. I've been pursuing the imagery through a series of interactive gallery and public exhibitions.

  4. Pete Eckert is a totally blind person. But through his photography, he proves that he IS a visual person, he just can't see.

    Pete was the Grand Prize recipient of the SeeMe Exposure Award in 2008, an international photography competition, and was awarded $2,008 with a formal reception at Leo Kesting Gallery in New York City on Thursday August 7, 2008.

    SeeMe is proud to present this truly inspiring portrait of the artist.

  5. I sometimes get so caught up in the drama of everyday life that I forget to sit back and enjoy the simple things. Losing a dear friend this year really taught me how precious our time on this earth really is. You're here one second and gone the next, so if you have something to say to someone don't hesitate to do it before its too late.
