Ken Byers Video/Live UK 2012/15

 
 


Ken Byers (1955) is kunstenaar en docent op het gebied van interactieve media, film en geluidskunst. Hij studeerde ondermeer MA Fine Art University of Northumbria en MA Media Production (TV en Video), Universiteit van Sunderland. Hij werkt als docent in de Interactionalmedia aan de Universiteit van West-Schotland. Zijn werk is te zien op tentoonstellingen in en buiten het Verenigd Koninkrijk en opgenomen in een groot aantal internationale collecties. In zijn werk zien we projecties van grote architecturale structuren die worden gegenereerd door geluiden (interactive architectonic) welke door beweging sensoren (meestal door een live interactie) worden aangestuurd. Ken Byers laat een speciaal voor het PNEM Sound Art Festival opgenomen video zien met de titel: Full - Body - Movement Interactive (Sound & 3D 360 - Degree Space, Sensor - Technology).

Body-Movement-Interactive-Audio-Visual is a body interactive sound and moving image piece that explores the relation between sound and the moving 3D image. The work that I would like to preferably perform but are willing to present is a collection of ideas that I have arrived at during 3 years of practice led PhD. It involves body-movement-interaction with 3D models and a collection of software synthesizers. Using Max Visual Programming environment, utilizing the Kinect sensor.

A key theme in the performance is the relationship of the body with the audio-visual and the 3D image with sound, to develop a more integrated meaningful aesthetic. Its a form of virtual enhancement of the senses. It explores a more 'haptic' mode of expression, grounded in bodily feeling. The work explores new media philosophy and body perception theories. and explores the bodies engagement with technology.
