New York-based multidisciplinary artist Joshue Ott creates cinematic visual improvisations, often performed live and projected in large scale. Working from hand-drawn forms which he then manipulates with superDraw, a software instrument of his own design, Ott composes evolving images that reside somewhere between minimalism, psychedelia, and Cagean chance. He performs frequently with musicians, sympathetically translating sound to vision to yield immersive multisensory experiences that are at once immediate and synergistic. Ott's work has recently been featured in exhibitions at Mutek 2008,San Francisco International Film Festival (2008), Yuri's Night Bay Area 2008, Paris's Le Cube, the Playgrounds Audiovisual Art Festival in the Netherlands (2007), and the 2006 Ars Electronica Animation Festival. He has performed at Live Cinema Nights: Silver Lake Film Festival, in Los Angeles; as part of the Boston Cyber Arts Festival; and at venues throughout New York City, including Carnegie Hall and the Knitting Factory.
He currently runs Interval Studios, a small web development company specializing in flash programming and all sorts of wonderful animation.
