Aleatoric Video (2007)

The Aleatoric Video project of the Southern Finger Lakes (NY) is a remix of digital files submitted by the public, shown simultaneously on nine screens in public venues. It is designed so that viewers might "stumble" upon it as they go about other activities. Participants agreed that their digital files would be remixed using both traditional and non-traditional video effects. The installation includes one scrolling video of untouched digital files as submitted by the artist. The project generates questions: what does aleatoric mean? why is it art? is video art? who can be an artist? what is a NYSCA grant? Aleatoric Video is partially funded by the Artist Crossroads Grant of the Arts of the Southern Finger Lakes through the NYSCA Regrant Program.
