"People tend to forget that play is serious." -David Hockney
A/V PLAY! explores sights and sounds with handheld electronic audio-visual objects and digital cinematic installations centering on works that require participation for their activation.
A/V PLAY! Investigates the frontier of play through process, concept and use. Play is considered important part of a child's physical, psychological, social and emotional development and well-being and extends well into adulthood in a myriad of ambiguous ways. Play is described by sociologist David Reisman as a quality, as opposed to an activity. A/V PLAY! seeks to explore these qualities through audio-visual activities that focus on live, improvised and interactive projects.
A/V PLAY! delves into the artist's practice as play in an era of digital media and technology, from hacked and custom electronics, circuit bending, audio-visual noise and rhythms, and VJing to mobile performance using iPod Shuffles, as well as other interactive cinematic work.
