Live Transmission by Scott Kildall

An amazing start to the weekend with Recology SF opening for Scott Kildall. I captured some video footage of Scott’s piece, Live Transmission. Kildall created the work using a turntable, DVD player, projector, wiring, and circuitry. The projection simulated a transmission of the distant future where humans salvage and re-create a world they once knew. By re-appropriating the technology we utilize today in this particular series presents an environment where the objects we discard outlive us and what might happen when humans must recreate and reinterpret the world through these objects. According to the artist, Live Transmission was one of the easier works to produce! Brilliant…

If you are not familiar with the Recology SF Artist In Residency program, it’s a wonderful opportunity for artists to bring their ideas and concepts into fruition. You can learn more about the residency here and learn about past artists as well as upcoming residents.
