Aran Wilkinson-Blanc is a Calgary based, multidisciplinary artist. 2011 was his second time with EMMEDIA’s Production Access program, and allowed him the opportunity to combine photography, videography, computer animation and sculpture in an unconventional way. He works with Linux and only shoots RAW.
Aran will be talking about “Structured light” is a video and sculptural installation exploring how we interact with and are affected by differences in dimensions and presentations; the transference of the three-dimensional world to the two-dimensional one and back again. How both of these worlds affect, move and respond to people and the role technology can and does play in the process. It represents the reversal of the Image and its collapse into a two-dimensional representation by building that Image up into a physical reality.
