IDLM-featured gallery artist, Bruno Levy, has released two new videos! Levy has been recognized as a pioneer in video multimedia. His video, Sialogogue, won in the Best Short Film/Video category at the 2009 New York Photo Awards.
This first video, The Landing, was developed by SWEATSHOPPE, a multimedia performance collaboration between Bruno Levy and Blake Shaw. In an effort to establish new platforms for public art and performance, the multimedia duo has developed a new interactive technology that enables them to explore the relationship between video, mark making and architecture. Dubbed "video painting," this technology allows them to essentially "paint" video onto any surface. Shooting in Queens, Brooklyn, and Manhattan, the duo spent documenting their work in urban settings to create The Landing...the first in a series of episodes that showcases their work as artists, technologists and performers.
And in a cosmic alignment, Levy's video features two very special masks by current IDLM-featured artist Shin Murayama.
This second video is a stop-motion narrative synched to 'Deboutonner' by Modeselektor. The presentation is the result of thousands of photographs taken over the course of a week using flashlights and long-exposures by Levy in Patan, Nepal.
