Video: Day For Night 2016 Visual Artists – Golan Levin

Houston Public Media visited the 2016 Day for Night festival to meet some of the visual artists presenting dazzling art installations.

Golan Levin is an interactive media artist who has described his work as a “poetic surveillance system.” He uses camera systems to capture body movements, which are then projected onto a wall with laser beams. Interestingly, the simple projections somehow retain some of the humanity of the subjects. The result is a sort of comic ‘cave painting for the 21st century,’ but it also evokes questions about technology and privacy.  

Keep an eye out for Day for Night artist profile stories each day this week, and see the entire series on Arts InSight Friday, March 3, 8:30pm, on Houston Public Media – TV 8.
