I guess this means the era of plug-and-play digital video artworks has actually arrived, at least for some simpler works. I guess it's just a matter of time before more complex art work is available with similar technology. The only limiting factors that occurr to me immediately is electrical power and storage, and both of these are improving every year. How long before I can get a Wilfred Lumia box in this format (or something more contemporary)?
"Kinetic Painting" is a particular kind of visual performance that is related to visual music created with color organs, but instead of using a mechanical device, it is performed with various kinds of projector (usually an overhead projector) live for an audience. Both Norman Perryman and The Lumonics Theater are examples of this type of visual music.
Choice quote from an interview with Invader: "Initially there was the discovery of a relationship between pixelation and the mosaic, then the introduction of a video game into reality, and finally an invasion on a planetary scale." What I find striking is he has made the same connection I did between the pixel and earlier visual media.
This exhibit presents a strikingly antiquated Modern vision of the Future (now the present) from the 1940s.
Radebaugh designed many of the images we now recognize as emblematic of what our present was imagined to be like in the days when imagining the Future wasn't a bleak prospect.
