Intro To Video Feedback Workshop by Jon Sims and Carlos David TC
August 19, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Jon Sims will be leading an Intro To Video Feedback Workshop where he will go over the basic techniques to create Video Feedback. Video feedback is the process of pointing a camera at the screen displaying the camera’s output. This creates a feedback loop of images infinitely repeating onto and over themselves creating interesting patterns.
Using Video Feedback techniques, a video mixer, old cameras and a music playlist, artists Jonathan Sims and Carlos David TC will create visual projections in the space and take photo portraits in real time of those in attendance.
Jon Sims is a New York City based visual artist. Born in Austin, Texas, he began his practice with painting, but has since moved into sculpture, projection installations, print and curation. His visual arts practice is characterized by geometric abstractions and light. A consistent premise underlying his work is that a modern human’s relationship with the very ancient past is mirrored in their relationship with the distant future.
Carlos David TC (born Caracas, Venezuela, 1984) is a Queens based artist and experimental filmmaker. His work explores identity in the digital space, coming of age in the era of reality tv, and mobile content creation as a mean of communication.
By combining humor, alter egos, self interviews, obsolete technologies and infinite digital storage the artist attempts to blur the line between performance and reality by experimenting with the documentation of the “process behind the work” as a performance of its own. The constant need to articulate an identity through documentation produces different sets of self-portraits that are presented via moving image, screenshots, screen recording, films, memes, music videos, text based work, performance and site-specific installations.
