PORTAL: VISUAL ITERATED FUNCTION SYSTEMS DIRECT & EXTERNAL
JULY - AUGUST 2018
Civic TV Laboratories, in collaboration with Flatland Gallery, is pleased to announce the opening of video artist Neil Ebbflo’s exhibition “Portal: Visual Iterate Function Systems Direct and External”; our first nomadic exhibition after the closing of our Freeman Street location. The exhibition explores connections between feedback loops, topological systems, and the phenomenon of pareidolia through a three-part interactive installation that deconstructs the moving image into a multifaceted sensorial experience. Neil Ebbflo, the pseudonym used by Neil Jody for his various video projects, is a professor of mathematics at San Jacinto College and an expert in analog video synthesizers which he uses to sculpt light and sound frequencies into process based abstractions that reveal a nuanced world behind our traditional experience with the time-based medium. In addition Ebbflo will release the first book of his work entitled “Totems” at the opening, a publication of the Free International University -Texas.
