About the installation:
Through a large-scale interactive sound and video installation, artist-composers James Borchers and Jérémy Jolley explore the relationship between identity and representation in the age of digital artifice. Infrared sensors, multichannel speakers, and software generate an interactive experience featuring video projections of musicians from the Seattle Modern Orchestra.
As visitors move through the space, the images and sounds stratify, disintegrate, sync, and reconstruct. Visitors can enter a small dodecahedron-shaped room to immerse themselves in an audio-video collage of those same players. Through its presentation of altering human forms playing their instruments, the piece becomes part performance and part digital play, invoking both dialogic and meditative experience, and calling into question what we know to be authentic or real.
Oxbow is a place where diverse disciplines cross and collaborate—experimenting through art installations, performances, workshops, music, films, and lectures—as well as community and private events.
This installation was made possible thanks to the support of 4Culture, JackStraw Foundation and Oxbow.
