Beatrice Valentine Amrhein

Thursday, April 24th, 2008


De mobiele telefoon symboliseert voor Beatrice Valentine Amrhein intimiteit, indringendheid en directheid. De video in de mobiele telefoon ziet zij als haar derde oog waarmee zij op een andere manier naar de werkelijkheid kijkt. De lage resolutie die inherent is aan het medium zet zij in om ook onze perceptie te veranderen.

De installatie Video Lustre bestaat uit tientallen mobiele telefoons die als een kroonluchter aan het plafond hangen. De mobiele video’s laten in close-up verschillende fragmenten van het lichaam zien. In het netwerk van mobiele telefoons ontstaat een nieuwe interpretatie van het lichaam.

Uncle Roy All Around You

Wednesday, April 9th, 2008

Uncle Roy All Around You is a game played online in a virtual city and on the streets of an actual city. Online Players and Street Players collaborate to find Uncle Roy’s office before being invited to make a year long commitment to a total stranger. Read more about it at www.blasttheory.co.uk/bt/work_uncleroy.html

The game is a project of Blast Theory, a renowned internationally as one of the most adventurous artists’ groups using interactive media, creating groundbreaking new forms of performance and interactive art that mixes audiences across the internet, live performance and digital broadcasting. Led by Matt Adams, Ju Row Farr and Nick Tandavanitj, the group’s work explores interactivity and the social and political aspects of technology. It confronts a media saturated world in which popular culture rules, using performance, installation, video, mobile and online technologies to ask questions about the ideologies present in the information that envelops us.
