experimenting with waves of aura digitally: no. 11-17
Benjamin suggest in his study that artwork in the age of technique lack aura. However, after some experiments with acrylic and video projection (as outlined in an earlier blog post) I was able to break the video projection into colourful waves of light, which made me think of aura. After making quite a few experiments with this “technique” I got curious about studying the non-mediated connection between video and waves. Thus, I have made a range of different studies of the waves that come in to being within my own video artwork. By investigating the link between color, time speed, contrast etc. and the form of the waves I have explored the aesthetic of the waves (screen shots as examples). I found it fascinating how the waves ads an extra dimension to the video works and I am curious about taking this a step further creating art pieces where the waves are an integrated part.
