New Australian Experimental Video Resource

So a while back I heard rumblings about this and have been meaning to post this for a while, Stephen Jones (one of the pioneers of media art in Aus) designed  the Supernova 12, a system owned by Jeffrey Siedler who has very kindly donated it to a new experimental video lab set up By Tom Ellard (of severed heads) and Ant Banister at the University of New South Wales, Other Stephen Jones machines have also been resurrected and integrated with some newer devices and at some point in the future hopefully we will see some new work! I believe Ed and Liz of LZX and Pia VanGelder are also lending a hand  (thanks to Ant for the Photos) and Tom for his blog posts http://tomellard.com/wp/2013/09/operation-big-iron/ http://tomellard.com/wp/2014/09/update-to-big-iron-fingers-crossed/

Video Glitch Device

Here is a device I built for a fellow artist, there are a few shots of its slowly disrupting a shot of a grid to give you an idea off the effects it can produce.

Gieskes 3TrinsRGB1

Gieskes has come out with a lovely little closed architecture video synthesizer with a small break out bread board which opens up the whole thing to more interesting exploitation. Beautiful stuff.
