About Spectron

Animated

This edition of video artworks is the result of my research in video art from the 60s and 70s, especially early analog video synthesizers. These were heavy hardware machines capable of generating shapes and patterns from the ground up, with no external visual input. How could these machines generate such complexity by just manipulating electronic voltage? I decided to investigate this process. Although with modern technologies, Spectron shares the procedural logic with its analog ancestors.

Simon De Mai

Simon De Mai is an interdisciplinary artist and designer. In his artistic research, a rigorous design methodology is combined with an hands-on experimental approach, leading to unexpected processes and visual results where intuition, human error and technology imperfections play a fundamental role. Interested in the formal qualities of the final work as much as in exploring the creative possibilities of the technology behind it, his practice often results in developing custom tools or purposefully misusing existing ones.
