Just two minutes in length, a teaser from a new documentary on the Mapping Festival encapsulates the growing range today’s visualist can cover. Far from look-alike video loops projected on narrow rectangles, that gamut extends to mapping and human performance that explodes the screen, from advanced, special-effects-laden cinema to abstract visual design. The video is appropriately titled: these are, simply, artists working in light, exploring with that light the concepts of rhythm and space long exploited by music and sound.

Thanks to Mutis Mayfield for this one. I look forward to the finished result.
Here’s another fantastic video from the same documentarian, Jerome Monnot:
MetaMapping is a residence of 10 artists all working in the audio/visual field. Their mission is to work collectively for 8 days to produce a presentation during the mapping festival (07/05/2010).
