Tektõn Two Zero is a series of audiovisual films exploring a machine made from a high speed spinning LCD panel. As the display panel revolves it leaves trace artifacts of light behind. The artists have explored feeding this virtual machine with different kinds of video footage and animations as the light source, so the whole construction becomes an image processing device. Each video clip that is processed through the machine outputs an entirely different and unique light sculpture that becomes almost frozen in time.
Tektõn is an ongoing collaboration between D-Fuse and Labmeta exploring the materiality and temporality of light in motion. Multi-layered light-emitting objects are organised into kinetic structures that are governed by algorithmic systems. As the mechanics of the devices are rendered invisible, traces of light remain. The fragile binaries of disorder and pattern, light and dark, harmony and disarray, human and machine become delicately balanced as they are stabilised in motion and ghost-like images hang in the air.
