KEDD Night: Mon, Jan 21, 6-9pm
In a world filled with digital media, audiences have come to expect all images to move and interact with the viewer. We want to put a spin on this expectation by creating a series of changing shapes and patterns using analog technology. Kinegram, a technology developed in the late 1890s, transforms static graphics into moving images without the use of digital media. A transparent filter, typically printed with solid parallel lines, unlocks static imagery and surprises the audience with unexpected motion. This hands-on experience lends a human touch to an increasingly virtual world.
As public artists and designers, we are interested in creating art installations that are site specific. In this case, the pattern used to create the low-tech animation is a visual parallel to the patterns woven into the beautiful rugs displayed in the store.
This is part of KEDD Night, one of many events happening in the King East Design District on Monday, January 21, 6-9pm.
