[ISEA2000] Artist Statement: ANDREA POLLI – Rapid Fire

Artist Statement


Rapid Fire is an improvisational collaborative sound performance focusing on the exploration and implementation of Intuitive Ocusonics, a process in which voluntary and involuntary eye movements create a visual and aural landscape. Intuitive Ocusonics is the five-year effort of Andrea Polli, an experimental programmer, sound artist, and technologist who takes social implications of new technology to the extreme. She is as a neo-concretist, merging and re-framing ideas of concrete art, music, and poetry. Intuitive Ocusonics melds visual and aural information through high end data trans-fer and tracking technology first developed by the US military. Rapid Fire turns the voyeuristic lens back on itself by tracking the observer, a ‘virtual fire’.
