Steina et Woody Vasulka

Publié le par Dr Drak

La fondation Langlois se focalise sur quelques extraits du travail de Steina et Woody Vasulka, 2 excellents vidéastes de l'europe de l'Est.
Exemple : La Machine Vision qui est un groupe d’installations qui visent à créer, par la caméra, une vision qui dépasse les limites de l’œil humain.
Allvision, I’un des premiers travaux du projet Machine Vision, et qui y joue un rôlie central, est un dispositif sphérique et rotatif qui médiatise l’expérience qu’a le spectateur de l’espace visuel. Le concept de " allvision " chez Steina Vasulka correspond à l’exploration d’un mode de voir selon une vision englobante dérivée de la machine.

Quote> A Spotlight on the Steina and Woody Vasulka fonds

The Daniel Langlois Foundation is proud to begin offering on-line access to its Vasulka Archives to coincide with the tribute to Steina and Woody Vasulka held within the 30th Montreal International Festival of New Cinema and New Media.

The Steina and Woody Vasulka fonds, like all documents collected by the Centre for Research and Documentation (CR+D), were first entered into our database so as to allow more in-depth research. Note that the Foundation doesn't systematically digitize all documents, rather only those whose physical or electromagnetic support (video, etc.) is deteriorating and those that back the findings of research conducted within our collections.

Our main goal in showcasing the Vasulkas' career and achievements is to enable people to discover the work of these two artists through innovative electronic means. A timeline we have drawn up sheds light on the philosophy driving the couple when they founded The Kitchen in 1971. This timeline closely follows the Vasulkas' career paths with a focus on their relationship with the different instruments and devices they acquired or developed with engineers. By including a selection of works, we want to stress the impact these instruments have had on the conceptual and aesthetic aspects of their art.

For their talent and dedication in getting this project off the ground, I'd like to thank Audrey Navarre, Alain Depocas, Julie Desautels, Jacques Perron, Catherine Mussely, Vincent Bonin and Angela Plohman.

Une belle trouvaille...
J'aime l'idée "vision qui dépasse les limites de l’œil humain"...
D'ailleurs savais tu que l'oeil humain perçoit en 600Dpi? Lowtek no? ;)
