Shrine 1 (2017 Digital Arts Demo Space, Chicago)
Two interactive installations:
1. A CRT wall with a camcorder pointed at the viewer with that feed mixed with an analog camcorder feedback loop as well as live video input from various other artists at the space so that as humans walked by they found themselves reflected as embedded both in the video art installations and dislocated in space time
2. Another CRT wall featured a digital video synthesis system based off of nonlinear dynamic systems. Participants were invited to use a controller to navigate through the fractal phase space and do their best to cause the program to crash.
