Lafayette Electronic Arts Festival presents audiovisual performances by Benton C Bainbridge and other artists.
Bainbridge premieres his new Video Synth Self-Portrait project, using prototype modules from Experimental Television Center’s legendary designer Dave Jones to radically transform his electronic likeness. BCB in a Suitcase rethinks the selfie as realtime media performance art.
On Saturday, April 2nd, Benton C Bainbridge, who teaches in the Computer Art MFA program at the School of Visual Art in New York, will be giving a brief talk covering the history of video performance, his own artistic practice, and the technology used in his and similar performances. The talk will begin at 10am at the CMF & CMA and is free and open to the public.
