In connection with Creative Tech Week, Brooklyn Research presents The Projected Self.
The Projected Self showcases the work of four artists working in unique but parallel spaces; bound by their use of video projection as means of engaging the human body and identity in performative or interactive forms. We will host artist talks by Indira Ardolic, Yuliya Lanina, Sonia Li, and Matthew Ortega.
Artists have a seemingly unending stream of new tools and technologies to enable or extend their creative practice. Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality offer a new means to engage the viewer in ways that have never been possible before, but these technologies are definitively singular in their format, allowing only an isolated personal experience. Often times it is an established technology, with all its defined limitations, that allows us to do things that others cannot. Projection in the form of video, film, or other screen-based media has become ubiquitous in our daily lives, yet it still offers ways of engaging the group or audience in ways that newer forms cannot. These four artists offer glimpses of how we can reconsider accepted formats and technologies in new ways through innovative approaches in performance, narrative, and interactive work.
