RANDOM EYE CHECK: REC
REC (Random Eye Check) an interactive installation is set in a cultural context in which surveillance over the society is no exception and the post-digital culture is overloaded with pictures and videos. Apparently, the today’s society is ready to embrace many forms of surveillance, especially those which do not impose limits on the society but bring about more convenience. Whether we like it or not, we engage in a daily interaction with real or virtual methods of gathering data about our lives.
Elwira Wojtunik (PL) and Popesz Csaba Láng (HU) – a Polish-Hungarian duet of visual artists, also known as Elektro Moon Vision. They design unique visual live-acts based on live experiments with the video surface, wide-format projections, mappings, audiovisual performances, interactive video-installations or video projections for theatre shows. City, technology and mankind as individual – are the main themes they analyze. In their works own patches, mathematic algorithms and technological solutions are often used.
The duet is regularly invited to participate in international events presenting new media art e.g. ArtMuse, sound:frame in Vienna, CHB in Berlin, LPM in Rome, Robot Festival in Bologna, VJ Fest in Istanbul. Their installations were exposed at the Contemporary Art Gallery Bunkier Sztuki, Salon-Projektionist VJ-art gallery, MuseumsQuartier in Vienna, Akarenga Soko Gallery in Yokohama, Japan and the 14th Media Art Biennale WRO 2011 in Wroclaw.
