KVIKA, video installation by Morgan Higby-Flowers @ The Packing Plant

"The Packing Plant is pleased to present KVIKA, a video installation byMorgan Higby-Flowers. November 01, Opening Reception as part of First Saturday Art Crawl in Wedgewood/Houston, Nashville, TN, 6­-9pm. Also, Higby-Flowers will be performing INPUT==INPUT, real time visual and audio manipulations, at 8:30pm.

KVIKA, a video installation by Morgan Higby-Flowers, depicts manipulated landscapes through coding and script to perform a particular task. Kvika, an Icelandic term, refers to the flesh under the nails, related to our digits, as well as a natural phenomenon of something emerging such as a spring or magma. The image depicts a landscape that transforms from a swell, a digital break creating a moving and changing environment, questioning the differences of the real and virtual world in which we live in. Higby-Flowers is interested in using the aesthetics of chaos, commenting on the phenomena of disorder in seemingly stable and harmonious systems; a disruption in an order, a crack emerging from the flow of water.

In addition, Higby-Flowers will be performing INPUT==INPUT, a real time audio and video manipulation using a non-input system consisting of a video mixer, an audio mixer, and a scan converter.
