Pierce Warnecke at Currents New Media Art Festival in Santa Fe, New Mexico, US
From June 10 to June 26, 2016 assistant professor Pierce Warnecke along with Matthew Biederman will push the limits of perceived reality at Currents New Media Art Festival in Santa Fe in a new audiovisual performance that combines their far reaching artistic practices.
"Perspection" is an audiovisual installation exploring the perception of space through the use of projection on a series of specifically oriented surfaces and spatialized audio. Trompe l’oeil has been used throughout the history of image making in order to transport the viewer outside their physical location in the same way that contemporary CGI and virtual reality propose experiences outside one’s body or the virtual transportation of the viewer through technology. On the contrary, "Perspection" seeks to embed the physical experience of perception in place and create a hyperawareness of the act of perception versus a disembodiment or virtual screen space by correlating screen space with physical space.
