David Fodel - artist, designer and teacher of courses "media art", "sound art", "kinetic sculpture" at the University of Colorado at Denver.
David Fodel examines the historical and contemporary convergence of technologically mediated sound and image in a performative context. Incorporating many examples, the talk traces the evolution of the form through its various trajectories including visual music, expanded cinema, and more recently the explosion of VJ'ing into the contemporary context of the audiovisual festival. While the practice itself knows no formal boundaries and is in constant flux, it is populated with artists that derive their impact equally from explorations of alternative and emergent forms of narrative, abstraction, and critical practice through the use of self-built electronic and mechanical interfaces, glitch aesthetics and a combination of cinematic and theatrical languages.
