Noise Crush \ Lisa Slodki
Video artist Lisa Slodki, a.k.a. Noise Crush, creates audiovisual performance environments in collaboration with experimental musicians. Drawing on an affinity for analog technology and found footage, Slodki generates cycling images that are digitally altered and then output to multiple VHS tapes as individual "loops". During live performance, a series of VCR's are connected to a video mixer which enables live superimposition and manipulation of various combinations of images. Seamless, overlapping junctures between images are the focus of Slodki's live performances. Her work engages with human gesture and dissonant emotional states, blending an evolving mix of lush and fragile themes.
