VIX Vimeo Videos

This summer has been very eventful for me and some of the work that I have been doing is now posted on Vimeo!

Videos include my newest work: Kensington Mystery Man

There is a film clip of the title sequence for Rise Up, Fallen Angel

Lisle Ellis said this one of his favourite visual parts of the show! That is quite a compliment considering the quality of art from the contributors around the world and Lisle’s dedication to his own visual art. This clip is really a display of my work in the visual and audio realms. I will be creating a documentary video of the event and my projection artist collaborator, Christina deRoos has posted a clip to her Vimeo account here.

The final public clip is a documentary of the work I did at EMPAC in 2010 — it is a work-in-progress showing of my Integrated Media Arts piece, Bandwidth. The video was edited by Julia Alsarraf, a colleague who also participated in the Media Lab at EMPAC.

The EMPAC experience was very important to me in many ways, but meeting the other artists was a great inspiration. I am still collaborating with one of my other colleagues, Suzon Fuks, an Australian artist. She is launching her Waterwheel project on August 22nd! I have contributed some of my water video and will be uploading more photos and other material to the collection. If you would like to be part of my crew in the “Tap” section, please contact me. I would like to be a more involved participant in the project.

Rise Up, Fallen Angel in Brooklyn, NY

by on May.08, 2011, under Concerts, Design, Events, Media, Music, Photography, Projects, Rise Up Fallen Angel, Video


Rise Up, Fallen Angel

The ephemeral strands that connect us; a gesture, a sound, a touch – may trigger cascades of meaning.
A glimpse of something peripheral to the main event, catches attention, and is gone — slipping into the crowd. “Play the Moment Composers’ Collective” weaves together strands of light and sound to form a tapestry of improvised narrative. The integrated media exhibition, Rise Up, Fallen Angel, brings together a diverse collection of visual creators from many countries who have sent their angels through the internet. We invite you to a primal, emotional experience designed to create an organically resonant, sensory immersion. Satisfy the need for spiritual renewal and tribal ritual in a contemporary context; myth and symbolism invoked using the latest in modern technology. We seek to reinforce the resilience of the human spirit: rise up and overcome the problems we all recognize in our lives, our communities and our planet.

The show will be awesome because of the wonderful artworks that have been submitted and the artistry of the Play the Moment Composers’ Collective.

Play the Moment consists of:

Paul Plimley – Lisle Ellis – Christina deRoos – Victoria Gibson

More information will be posted soon as I am working on producing a short demo of the show.

Headlands Arts Centre

by on Nov.23, 2010, under Photography, Travel

The beauty of this natural setting cannot be described too effusively. After spending a week in San Francisco, the quiet and natural setting is very restful at the Headlands Arts Centre in Marin County. I have been trying to spend time outside as I know it will be colder when I return home to Vancouver. This is a retreat, so internet is only available in the main buildings, not in the studio or houses and there is no cell coverage.

The studio that Lisle Ellis is sharing with me is a basketball court that we are re-purposing. I will provide photos when I have my hard drives, the internet and computer all in one place. Until then, here is a photo of Lisle rehearsing with the Oakland Active Orchestra. He is conducting the orchestra and teaching them his music.

When we first came to San Francisco, Lisle worked with this large ensemble and I am processing the video, but I also have a technical problem there as the Voltaic mt2s file conversion software is not working well on the new macbook. This seems to be a time of technical difficulties, so I am drifting away to more natural spaces. Sampled natural textures are the starting point for electronic explorations, video of oceanscapes will be projections. Photos of bleaching whalebones, the framework for digital art explorations. The computer is my lens, my palette and my delivery mechanism.

This month in the Bay Area has opened my eyes to new horizons and I am very grateful to Lisle Ellis for inviting me to share this time with him. I return to Vancouver November 27th.

Here are some photos from the American Thanksgiving at Headlands. What great food and friendship!

EMPAC LAB – Troy NY

by on Aug.16, 2010, under Projects

The first day at the EMPAC Lab with a group of very creative individuals from all over the globe. Two dancers from Australia, a computer science student from Italy, a dancer from South Korea, a Second Life theatre company member from England, various American citizens and myself, the lone Canadian.

My arduino boards did arrive in the mail today, so I am looking forward to developing that direction. The facilities and staff here are magnificent, giving us a level of technical support and available equipment that exceeds my expectations in every way. More photos and posts to come. This will be an exciting exploration for all of us.
