Artists - SIGNALS
Nicolas Sassoon; Vancouver BC Canada
Rick Silva; Eugene, Oregon
SIGNALS is a collaborative project by artists Nicolas Sassoon (Vancouver, BC) and Rick Silva (Eugene, OR) focusing on immersive audio-visual renderings of altered seascapes.
Sassoon and Silva share an ongoing theme in their individual practices; the depiction of wilderness and natural forms through computer imaging. Created by merging their respective fields of visual research, SIGNALS features oceanic panoramas inhabited by unnatural substances and enigmatic structures. The project draws from sources such as oceanographic surveys, climate studies and science-fiction to create 3D generated video works and installations that reflect on contamination, mutation and future ecologies.
Chris Rojas and Craig Winslow make up “Hexagone Misfit”, a visual arts team based out of Seattle and Portland. Together, they bring skills in 3D imaging, projection mapping,
photography, videography, and interactive installation design. Their visual experience includes
Intel, Microsoft, NikeLab, Portland Parks & Rec, Portland Trail Blazers, and The Neon Museum of Las Vegas.
Artist Jonathon Womack was chosen for the first exhibit and presented at the workshop, but had to decline due to family emergency. We hope to work with him again in the future.
