Abstract:

  • Artist Statement

    Ribbons is a relatively small real time visual instrument created for maximizing the expressiveness of the performer within it’s aesthetic paradigm. It’s design questions the basic assumption of a flat rectangle as the traditional projection space by presenting a virtual three-dimensional space where the footage (or live video) can be projected and deconstructed, adding a new dimension of expressiveness orthogonal to traditional narrative. We worked with the following design axes: playability vs. autonomy, expressiveness vs. narrative, and originality, and applied some of the basic techniques of Human-Computer Interaction and digital lutherie.
