Light Echos is a project about time, space, light and data, created by  Aaron Koblin, founder of Google’s Data Arts Team, and Tool‘s interactive director Ben Tricklebank.

The visitors to the Curve entered a dark environment and were led through the Curve by shifting words mapped onto the gallery floor, line by line, frame by frame, as though moving in space. The journey of visitors was also tracked and further revealed at the end as abstractions.

Not many people attended so I was among lucky few really to see the films on a big screen, as I don’t think there is many events like this. In fact I have been always on a look out for video art festivals in London but everything seems to have gone digital nowadays (with LUX being an exception on occassions). At Videovada I also attended the Analogue Video Workshop (have been looking for something like it for 7 years!!) and the demonstration of Praxis Live, which was aimed at people who had already experimented with the interactive audio-visual software before.

Info about Lighting:
UK – Manchester- based dbn Lighting are supplied an integrated lighting and visual design plus equipment – including lighting and LED screens – to The Warehouse Project (WHP).
dbn’s Pete Robinson created the production and lighting design for all three rooms in the space.
there is a strip of dbn’s 12.5 mm LED screen 13m wide by 2m deep at the back of the stage flanked either side of the PA wings at front truss level by two vertical LED drops at 1 metre and half a metre wide by 2m deep.
Several panels of LED are mounted on the front truss facing into the audience, and the visual surfaces are completed with a versatile 10 metre wide by one metre deep strip of LED – divided into four sections each mounted on wheeled tank traps – which can be placed onstage in different configurations according to the band or DJ set up.
dbn supplies all the processing, scaling and switching, while the video content for each week is supplied by a third party and/or the performing artists.
The idea is that the LED screen design will work on different perspectives whether you are standing right close up to the stage or right down the far end of the room – there will always be some eye-catching visuals in view.

The project created around the Woodchester Mansion in Gloucestershire. The Gothic Mansion was abandoned by its builders in the middle of construction, leaving behind a building that appears complete from the outside, but with floors, plaster and whole rooms missing inside. It has remained in this state since the mid-1870s. There were recordings with vintage mics and other analog machines then transformed into the powerful sounds you hear. All footage was filmed on site and broadcast, processed and captured before editing, mirroring Emptyset’s ‘chain of sound’ processes.
