Work under the umbrella name "Video art" consists of different expressions, approaches, processes and motion-media or their use, as well as combinations of video/motion and other media. This work is featured either under the name IOFEYE or POINTATSPEEDS.
video/motion/live performance/visual music
Specific creations and processes have a linear and narrative structures, while others are explorations of possibilities of video collaging and super-impositions of layers and different media on vertical axis, extracting pieces and samples and synthesizing them into new messages and creations.
Material I use consists of own recordings, sampled pieces, photographs and drawings "processed into motion", writing, recorded processed pieces. I often work with reiterative processes, where a sample or a piece of recording is being worked upon in a specific way until something entirely new emerges, and frequently I work with video and audio track simultaneously.
LIVE VIDEO PERFORMANCE
I perform as IOFEYE or POINTATSPEEDS with live video creation at concerts, club-sets, cultural events, art installations and events, or mapping onto trees and rocks outdoors.
Pre-determined theme and expression: having a base narrative and expressive line and live mixing over
Fully spontaneous: feeling the music and the energy of the place/event and using the vast library of clips to synthesize, live process, mix, record in the moment and tell a story or create a corresponding visual mood.
Limited source: starting from a very limited sample source (sometimes a single image) and processing upon that piece until paths that i wish to take and that fits the mood open up. This results in very immersive and interesting processes for me and completely surprising visual conclusions at times.
Live feed processed: processing and cutting, mixing and glitching the live input from camera and combining with other loops. Here I often use pieces of live writing and drawing as well as faces and sceneries
LIVE DRAWING - LIVE ANIMATION
Experience of drawing - for both the artist and the viewer - does not have to be confined to paper. As drawing is one of my frequent forms of expression, it only made sense that it would make its way into other media or intersect with them.
Drawings are used as a basis for generating and building of video structures and scapes and knead those through progressions - adding or intersecting with new lines of drawing or direct camera input.
IOFEYE visual mixologies and drawings in real time on projected screen or over a pre-recorded video piece.
Live digital drawing and animation using TAGTOOL. This unfolds by drawing elements and structures, spaces, scapes and figures, and animating, modifying and making those elements interact. IOFEYE live animation sessions are both of abstract character but are also used as a storytelling with figurative motives.
