Explorations in Video Art through VHS and Analog Glitch
24 April 2016, 11:00 - 15:00
WORKSHOP GIVEN BY GUILLAUME VALLÉE & ROB FEULNER
This workshop will cover a brief history of video art related to analog video and glitch techniques, leading to a short overview of local analog artists.
The artists will present their own artistic practical process. Those attending will be able to acquire knowledge on analog art and the multiple disciplines related to the subject (video, performance, and hybrid forms.) Participants will be able to explore their own process using found footage, VCRs, and analog video mixers and circuit bent machines.
This hands-on workshop is open to those from any artistic background and experience.
Rob Feulner is a visual artist hailing from Montreal, Quebec. Armed with a stack of VCRs, circuit-bent machinery, and a disregard for electrical shocks, Rob Feulner dives wrist-deep into open machinery to manipulate tape heads and moving parts to create a landscape of video tracking errors and glitches. His video art label Bleu Nuit Video curates underrepresented like-minded artists through DVD and VHS home releases.
Graduated from Concordia University with a MFA in Studio Arts and now a PhD candidate at UQAM, Guillaume Vallée is interested in radical, analog forms of moving images as a way of considering the direct interaction between different mediums and the exploration of materiality within the creative process.
