Ambient Occlusion 2020

AO (AMBIENT OCCLUSION)

CAPTURING A HIGHLY REFLECTIVE ENVIRONMENT USING MODERN TECHNIQUES OF FILMING AND RAY TRACING RENDERING VIA A 3D MODELED REPLICATED SET.

THIS VIDEO INSTALLATION USES THE SPECULARITY OF GLASS TO HELP NARRATE THE PATH OF A TECHNOLOGIC ENTITY REMOVED FROM THE HUMAN CONDITION ALTHOUGH FORCED INTO IT.

IN ITS TROUBLED EXPERIENCE OF METALIC TEXTURES AND GLASS OBJECTS, AN ARTIFICIAL EYE LOST WITHIN THE REFLECTION OF ITSELF, HIS SENSORS FAILING AND CONSTANTLY IN REBOOT, IS FORCED INTO A BLUE LABYRINTH. THIS RESULTS IN A FORM OF A MECHANIC WALK AROUND IN A LAND OF CONFUSION INVITING THE VIEWER TO GET LOST WITH IT.

A SOUND PIECE TAINTED OF MUSIQUE CONCRETE COMPOSED WITH EXTRACTED SOUND OF GLASS PRESENT ON FILM IS COMPLEMENTED WITH AN AUTO GENERATIVE MODULAR SYNTHESIS FEEDBACK SYSTEM.

LAYERING ALL OVER THE PIECE ARE WHISPERS COMING LIKE A HINT FOR AN EXIT. A CONCEPT THAT US HUMANS OFTEN DESIRE TO PROJECT ON MACHINES.

RENDERED BETWEEN REALITY AND DREAMS, A GLIMPSE INTO THE INFINITE DEPTH OF THE MATHEMATICAL EQUATION THAT SEEM TO MODEL WHAT HAVE BEEN NATURE’S CHOICE SINCE THE DAWN OF TIMES IN ORDER TO GIVE US A HOME.

THIS VIDEO IS THE FIRST INSTALMENT OF A SERIES USING THE MANDELBROT SET AS A STARTING POINT.
