D – VIDEO CULTURE

Latvian Academy of Arts / Kalpaka Boulevard 13

A video recording created by artist Sam Meech, through experimenting with ‘organic video response reactions’, depicts three independent colour systems mutually evolving, developing and fighting for their territory. These laser-based systems have taken on lives of their own. A specially created surface, modelled on the facade of the Latvian Academy of Arts, is slowly permeated with them, so that they can be projected onto the actual building.

Project concept/execution: Sam Meech (United Kingdom)

Project sponsors: Riga City Council, Rīga 2014 Foundation
