Articulations: Live Video mixing for Empowerment

Jacob Camara, of Articulations Electroniques, and I lead this community driven project in which students collected video and still images of diverse people in Bangalore.
The image and video collection process served as a community building activity about how people see themselves reflected in public space. Filming people dancing and celebrating created empowering cultural images as material for live video sets. The collected material was mixed with archival video, and found footage to create video sets that were projected and accompanied by music to reclaim public space. There where two events took place at Rangoli Metro Art Centre and a film screening at Srishti. For more about the process visit the Articulations Blog.
