Campus Monitors Exhibit: Ocular Ambien

ExTV is impressed (and knows you will be too) with the videos made by students from Eric Fleischauer’s Spring 2019 Video Everywhere class. The following videos will play on ExTV’s monitors between April 15 – May 12, 2019.

Ocular Ambien is an exhibition of ‘ambient videos’ that harnesses the creative potential of the multitude of monitors populating our field of vision.  It seems apt that students in a class titled Video Everywhere would be exhibiting their videos everywhere on campus – transforming an array of idle screens into an impromptu micro-cinema located in the vestibules, corridors, and commons around SAIC.

An infinite loop presenting a girl putting the accessories on and off.
The ambient video serves the purpose as a temporal sinkhole, blurring
the boundary of time and space, giving a sense of hypnotics and
voyeurism.
