The Joshua Light Show is raising funds on Kickstarter to produce Liquid Lights II, a sequel to their classic Liquid Loops document of their lightshow, which has been displayed at the Whitney, Hirshhorn, Tate, Centre Pompidou and many other museums across the USA and Europe.
Liquid Loops II, much like its predecessor, acts both as a video portrait of the Joshua Light Show's ephemeral practice while doubling as a unique and indispensable tool for visualists, bands, and VJs,
JLS founder Joshua White loves to reveal the secrets of his lightshow. The first edition of Liquid Loops plays an integral role in each performance we give. Liquid Loops II will become an essential aspect of our future presentations. Moreover, it will be made available to the public for purchase.
We are currently scheduling a series of film shoots using the highest quality Red Digital Camera to capture high-definition, 4K footage of this iconic imagery. This will involve renting the camera and studio, hiring a DP, and paying for the same kinds of production costs incurred by any professional film shoot, running several thousands of dollars. As the image quality is high, so must terabytes of data storage be acquired at additional cost. The remainder of the fundraised sum will go towards manufacturing and packaging.
The first Liquid Loops was captured years ago on 35mm film by artist Cecily Hoyt. Isn't it about time there was a second edition? Lovers of the light, we thank you for your support over the years and want to make sure that the new incarnation of the Joshua Light Show is documented, utilized to elevate our own practice, and shared with you and generations to come!
