Please rate, share, and comment!

Memory @ AVAF 2010 from pkmital on Vimeo.

‘Memory’ is an augmented installation of a neural network by Parag K Mital & Agelos Papadakis.
hand blown glass, galvanized metal chain, projection, cameras; 1.5m x 2.5m x 3m

Ghostly images of faces appear as recorded movie clips within neural-shaped hand-blown glass pieces. As one begins to look at the neurons, they notice the faces as their own, trapped as disparate memories of a neural network.

Filmed and installed for the Athens Video Art Festival in May 2010 in Technopolis, Athens, Greece. The venue is a disused gas factory converted art space.

Also seen at Kinetica Art Fair, Ambika P3, London, UK, 2010; Passing Through Exhibition, James Taylor Gallery, London, UK, 2009; Interact, Lauriston Castle, Edinburgh, UK, 2009.

Polychora (AV Synaesthesia)

Polychora stands for a 4 dimensional polytope, a connected or closed figure of lower dimesnional polytopal elements. These elements are thought of as the impulses of the piece and their combinations are intricately explored and decomposed in order to create a soundscape of particles. As an exploration of synaesthesia, the visuals are created as an audio-reactive algorithm based on brightness, panning, texture, noisiness, pitch, and their combinations. By combining the amorphous space of possible impulses and the range of sound textures, the polychoron takes a visual shape altered by the different dimensions of texture.

This piece was presented at the Soundings Festival on February 6th and 7th, 2010 (curated by Andrew Connor).

Soundings Festival

As part of an audio-visual collaboration, Christos Michalakos and myself have experimented with a possible rendering, Polychora, for submission to the Soundings Festival. I’m happy to announce that our piece was selected and will be presented on February 6th as part of the evening festival, 6 p.m. at the Reid Concert Hall, Bristo Square, Edinburgh, Scotland. Uploaded here are a few stills from the video:



As well, a short description of the piece:
Christos Michalakos & Parag K Mital – Polychora:
