microtakeover is an exploration thru the small vastness of life. An expression and indirect communication that intends to let the viewer experience how ever many levels of size and the causation that space defines.
microtakeover was conceptualized then created by means of animation, compositing and programming. The video was then transferred to KiloWatts to design the audio around then sent back to Psymbolic to make final edits. This creation method flipped the usual creative process and in our opinion, ultimately alters the viewing aesthetic. Psymbolic usually approaches creating video to be synched realtime to future audio and KiloWatts usually creates audio as a track to be a part of an album and/or performed live at events.
microtakeover was picked to be showcased throughout the month of March 2008 at Lumen Eclipse's video art kiosk in Harvard Square. Lumen Eclipse presents contemporary motion art in public spaces. Using outdoor video displays, social venues and the web, Lumen Eclipse initiates dynamic interactions between artists, sites and audiences. See/Hear microtakeover on Lumen Eclipse.
