My favorite aspect with this entire medium, whether you call it circuit bending, video bending or glitch art, is that there are no rules, limits or guidelines to follow. It’s limited only by your own imagination, in the sense that you can create something amazing with literal spare parts and any signal. Old media, camera feedback or professionally made custom circuit boards can all hold something beautiful hidden inside. All you need is some patience and the desire to reach out and capture something truly unique in the static.
To me, video art is a lens that translates musical performance into the visual medium, that best amplifies the overall experience. We each perform using our personal gear and our own styles of art, but our purpose within the context of a show is to maximize the impact of the event, and make it even more memorable.
Video is my canvas.
