[ISEA2013] Artist Statement: Keith Armstrong & Lawrence English – Night Rage

Artist Statement

A new form of media installation combining image, multi-channel sound and internally lit objects into a mysterious, deep image plane. Staged on the very edge of spectrum blackout, and moving into the deep of night. Night Rage examined the many shades of ‘nocturnal’, threats to night biodiversity and the myriad myths and stories that have shaped our cultural understandings of life after light. Barely recognisable images float within landscapes of media, noise and sound as the work asserts a profound resistance to today’s all consuming media mesh.  embodiedmedia.com/homeartworks/night-rage  Video: Night Rage (Shorter Version) Video: Light_of_Extinction
