Bart Woodstrup

Bart Woodstrup, artist, seeks to understand and manipulate the aesthetics, semiotics, and narratives of various time-based media. His work often takes the form of traditional musical composition, real-time interactive audio/video performance, multimedia installation and networked experience.  Using custom software that is capable of rendering sound and visuals in real-time, Bart explores the creation of Live Cinema experiences.  Through the use of digital effects and editing techniques these performances often subvert traditional narratives by enveloping them in irony, metaphor, and abstraction.  His work is shown regularly throughout the U.S. and abroad, and has been included at Siggraph, Inter-Society for the Electronic Arts, SEAMUS, Spark Festival of Electronic Music and Arts, Not Still Art Festival, Version>03, and the Chicago Underground Film Festival.
