ANTMASTER IVMay 11, 2009, 5:00 pm »
The Antmaster is an experiment in hybridizing Dynamic Media (projections) with Static Media (paintings.) Digitally projected images of live ants are superimposed onto painted surfaces to achieve a new amalgam of motion and still images. In addition, nanosounds of ants moving and communicating were recorded in a nanoscience lab to act as a soundtrack to the pieces.
Through experiments in sound and re-envisioning experiences common within everyday life, Gil's aim is to push people away from paradigmatic thinking. He takes a whimsical approach in subverting common perceptions of reality. By exaggerating perception and derailing reality, Gil redefines the familiarity we associate with the organic and social processes that surround us.
