ONLY 23 COPIES are left and this is the only place to get them. This is the full documentation of the book launch panel @the New Museum, NYC for The Emergence of Video Processing Tools: Television Becoming Unglued, edited by Sherry Miller Hocking, Kathy High and Mona Jimenez. You can purchase this book online at: http://www.amazon.com/The-Emergence-Video-Processing-Tools/dp/184150663X Beginning in the late 1960s, artists and technologists began to custom-create hardware and software for real-time manipulation of video signals through original designs or as hacks to devices common to television production. Contemporary artists and tool designers continue this work in analog and digital domains in an expanded media environment. This program will bring focus to the social and artistic dimensions of custom tool development, and to the dual impulses to create new instruments and conserve and use older ones. In conversation will be inventor Dave Jones, whose video instruments span forty years, artists-designers Kyle Lapidus and Tali Hinkis of LoVid, Rhizome conservator Dragan Espenschied, and Hank Rudolph of the artist space Signal Culture and the Experimental Television Center. The panel marks and celebrates the publication of The Emergence of Video Processing Tools: Television Becoming Unglued, edited by Kathy High, Sherry Miller Hocking, and Mona Jimenez (Intellect Books, 2014). Documentation of this panel was shot and edited by Signal Culture staff and volunteers Janeen Lamontagne, Robert Hoffman, Debora Bernagozzi and Jason Bernagozzi.

        • Strip / Lakeshore East: full length

          Panoramic, time delayed video, 1 hour 28 minutes. Stereo sound: please use headphones if possible. Installed April 22-July 29 2012 on the 80 ft long facade of the Hyde Park Art Center in Chicago, as part of the show "The Hairy Blob": http://hairyblob.net/ To make this piece I rode my bicycle throughout the year, in all seasons, day and night, on multiple paths through a unique part of Chicago that has been completely transformed by human artifice, in the process losing any sense of a consistent ground plane or uniformity of locale: it consists of violent oppositions between landscaped parks, underground service tunnels, parking-caverns inhabited by impounded cars and homeless derelicts, three level underground highways, manicured lake-shores, luxury living condos and walled in observation decks, fountains and fireworks, garbage dumps and engine rooms- all stacked on top of each other within less than a square mile. The technical mechanism by which the panoramic image is generated is similar to the system I used for previous pieces in this series: A continuous video is shot from a camera mounted on a bicycle moving through a location. Consecutive moving frames from that single traveling shot, are spatially laid out next to each other so that each "slice" shows a moment a few seconds behind that shown by it’s neighbor. The intervals in time between these slices are constantly in flux, thus generating a landscape of shifting spatial proportions. Sound is also an important element in this piece: every slice of video comprising the strip plays its audio at the same moment, creating a strange doppler effect as sounds from different, adjacent locations play in unison.

              Terra Baixa, revisitada. Una pel·lícula de Manel Bayo sobre una pel·lícula Leni Riefenstahl. Tiefland remix funciona com un collage, independent i deutor del material del qual està composat. El format final és una pel·lícula sobre una pel·lícula. El que es busca amb tot aquest procés creatiu són nous llenguatges, l’elaboració d’un material audiovisual a partir del collage. Aquesta tècnica no sorgeix de cap aprenentatge acadèmic, sinó després de molts anys d’investigació autodidacta entorn els medis digitals. Manel Bayo ja ha estat utilitzant aquesta tècnica des de l’any 2009 amb Raza Remix i al 2010 amb el curtmetratge Eclesiastes. Web del projecte: http://manelbayo.com/tiefland-remix/

                      SHOCKWAVES is about a man whose traumatic memories of childhood send him on a hallucinogenic carnival ride of self-destruction and murder. Through a surrealistic Möbius strip of alternate realities, shifting times and multiple dimensions, SHOCKWAVES weaves a kaleidoscopic nightmare tapestry of abuse and revenge.
