DIY VIDEO TRANSMISSION WORKSHOP PERFORMANCE
EVENT: 1-Day Workshop
SCHOOL: Taos High School
INSTALLATION: September 25, 26
Workshop students explore the performative possibilities of real-time video and sound transmission through the artistic application of DIY electronics. By exploiting the voided analog video transmission spectrum, students will synthesize visuals and sound through broadcast distortions and radio interference in a collaborative composition. Multiple transmitters broadcast visualizations to televisions in the performance environment, each generating a unique visual and corresponding sonic output. Through in the moment experimentation and collaboration, the performers actively pursue unexpected discoveries of analog video materiality through the creative implementation of their handmade circuits.
