[ISEA2015] Artist Statement: Justin Lincoln – THE STROBOSCOPE (FOR PAUL SHARITS)

Artist Statement

Digital video (2014)

In Justin Lincoln’s The Stroboscope (for Paul Sharits) a violent, lo-fi audio-visual abstraction showcases bands and fields of rapidly shifting color with an incessant noise soundtrack. Colors were generated from a feed of images from Tumblr and manipulated in Processing. The soundtrack was produced with Little Bits/Korg Synth Kit. (Warning. Strong stroboscopic effect. May cause seizures.)

  • Justin Lincoln is an experimental artist and educator. A graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University (BFA 2000) and CalArts (MFA 2002), he teaches New Genres & Digital Art at Whitman College in Walla Walla, WA. Lincoln’s work has recently been screened at FILE Sao Paulo Brazil, The Chicago Underground Film Festival and CICA Museum in South Korea.
