newsletter leap day 2016

Hi,
it´s time for a newsletter on this bonus day, with a look back at the projects I completed at the end of last year and the beginning of this year.

For a quick overview of most of my 2015 activities take a look at the 2015 showreel:

Also I have finally updated my website, please have a look at the projects section.

Barents

Barents (mare incognitum) is a large-scale projection of the ocean slowly rotating, filmed with my orbital camera. More specifically it´s the Barents Sea, filmed at the border of Russia and Norway, pointing towards the North Pole.
It was shown in Nikel as part of the Dark Ecology journey which took place in the border area between Norway and Russia in the end of November.

In December it was shown for a week at the EYE Filmmuseum in Amsterdam.

In January it was shown outside Kulturkirken Jakob as part of Klimafestivalen §112.

The Crossing

Another project for Dark Ecology: Pulses of light passing over an unfinished structure of concrete slabs sticking up from a frozen dam. A total of six lines of light were suspended over the 20x20m area in the industrial zone of Zapolyarny, Russia.

BEK feirer 15 år

a live collaboration with phonophani (Espen Sommer Eide) at Bergen Kunsthall Landmark for the 15th anniversary of BEK. Sadly not a lot of documentation from this performance which was the first time I collaborated with Espen. You will hopefully get the chance to hear some of the music in a future release from phonophani.
I used the orbital camera as a live camera for this project with the idea of three different motions for the three different parts in the music: panning, rotation and combining panning and rotation.

 

Revolver vs Vibratone

On a very cold evening in January lots of people came to RAM Galleri in Oslo to experience my collaboration with sound artist Alexander Rishaug. It was the 4th version of Spaces Speak, audiovisual evenings curated by Ricardo del Pozo and Joakim Blattman. Rishaug created different soundscapes centered around his large Leslie cabinet with a rotating speaker and I showed the light installation Revolver.
You can get an impression from the video here:

 

ps. while you wait for the next newsletter you could have a look at the whole performance of Voice with Maja Ratkje at Kongsberg Jazzfestival last summer:

    I am a newbie in A/V world. I really like the way you use A/V to form and transform the space and give a different life to it. After watching this video, I am curious about how you combine several monitors/TVs together and have continuous image/video playing through them and make them a huge canvas. If you don’t mind sharing, I am very interested in learning. Thanks a lot. Look forward to seeing more conversations from you in the combination of A/V and spaces.

    I use a dedicated hardware box that splits the output to the different screens. I only connect to the box like I would to a projector. The screens and router is normally used for big video wall systems.
