This edge I have to Jump (2013)

Shot with the RED Scarlet, This edge I have to jump is a multi-screen, site specific video installation on the illusory and idiosyncratic nature of creative process. The installation is a kinetic investigation into the compulsion to make, invent and perform what otherwise would be intangible. The piece surrounds viewers with image, sound and narrative fragments that draw on intimate conversations with artists, scientists and educators. Commissioned by the Institute for Creativity, Arts and Technology (ICAT) for the opening of the CUBE, an experimental research and performance space in the new $100 million Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech.

 

With spacialized music and sound by Eric Lyon and Charles Nichols, MAX MSP Jitter programming by Carol Burch-Brown, and cinematorgaphy by Wolfgang Lehner.
