Nocturne is an audiovisual performance from the Semiliminal Research Group that will be held at the Generator Makerspace on June 20th, 2023, at 7pm EST.
Divided into five parts; sundown, the gloaming, moonrise, witching hour and solar return, the work honors the shortest night of the year.
A hybrid fusion of generative video, synthetic sounds, computational poetry, and novel modular instruments, this is a culmination of multiple months of applied machine learning research; an immersive spectacle featuring live audio performance with a generative three-screen video projection that surrounds the viewer.
The Susan Calza Gallery in Montpelier, VT USA will be hosting a public exhibition of video art from Vermont artists through November 19th, 2022, including excerpts from Semiliminal Research Group’s recent installation Lost Objects from the Subsurface.
Artists featured include:
Arthur Bell & Katherine Monstream
Monica Frisell & Peter Franceschetti
Lukas Huffman & Erika Senft Miller
John Killacky & Arthur Bell
Dayton J. Shafer

Lost Objects from the Subsurface is an interactive media installation that encourages the viewer to traverse the boundaries of consciousness. Walls of a gallery display an oceanic videospace littered with commonly lost objects. The installation becomes alive as the presence of the viewer causes shifts in perspective from an ocean horizon, through underwater murk, and finally into the depths of a cave. Within the cave await audiovisual keys to help facilitate a process of self-reflection and discovery. To experience the levels of the videospace, the observer must maintain a certain level of stillness as determined by a sensor network trained with machine learning models. The various states of the installation are additionally defused with an atmospheric soundscape of sub-harmonic frequencies, electronic pulses and rhythmic patterns.
