for “Immaterial” by Ri Le, August 2018
Built using Vuo for Mac OS.
The webcam has a singular goal: to impart our likeliness into a digital system. Like most cameras and imaging devices, most people limit their perceptions of webcams to realist frames; this experiment explores the webcam as a medium that explicitly elicits performativity through novel visual representational modes— 3D graphics processing augmented in real-time with audio sources. In this work, the digital space of which my webcam is manipulated serves as a staging ground for cyborg imaginings of the self.
