Transmedia :29:59 November: Webcam Art

Year Zero One has just released November’s new content as part of TRANSMEDIA :29:59, a year long exhibition on the pedestrian level video billboard at Yonge-Dundas Square in downtown Toronto. Launched August 1st 2005, TRANSMEDIA :29:59 features one minute video works 24/7 every half hour on the 29th and 59th minutes.

This month, on the 29th minute: Cheryl Sourkes – Live from the Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas. And on the 59th minute: BlueScreen – streamScape.

Cheryl Sourkes’ Live from the Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas is a series of videos made by animating stills captured from a remote webcam. Live from the Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas shows various Elvis impersonators marrying a variety of heterosexual couples.

BlueScreen’s streamScape is made up of hybridised images from 13 webcams scattered all over the world. Every minute the streams from all of these cameras are captured on a server and then incorporated to the on-line landscape. Every hour an accelerated video of the last hour will be showed on Dundas Square video billboard.

TRANSMEDIA :29:59 is curated by Michael Alstad + Michelle Kasprzak.
