Video

Video portraits of 38 New Yorkers, made with a 3d laser scanner – an identity parade of the digital remnants of faces, some mere scraps, rotating in and out of the light. The glitchy, fragmented look of these scans results from the intentional misuse of the high-end 3d laser scanner, which was never designed to capture the body.

Switch, 2012
Single-channel video

Situated firmly within the landscape of the home-lab, Switch shows electrical devices being controlled by tangible, mutable, and messy interfaces in place of slick, ergonomically designed plastic devices to spotlight of the absurd human obsession with appending our bodies and our senses with high-tech gadgetry.

Coronado, 2011
Custom electronics, sound, mixed media

Coronado is a six channel sound installation inspi-
red by the artist’s sonic experience at Coronado beach in California. Using a custom made ocean drum controlled by autonomous mechanical arms as the sound source, a soundscape created by live processed feedback sound is created and the sound waves are bounced across the six sound channels, creating a spatial interpretation of the sound scape.

Simulation, 2011
Multimedia installation

Recent projects use live video feed and captured digital media to create tension between physical space and virtual space. By framing seamless visual narratives between tangible objects and digital imagery, the artist seeks to challenge the viewers’ perception of presence and simulation.

Hyperdentity, 2012
Multichannel video installation

As a digital generation we seek instant gratification through constant communication across a multitude of platforms. The social networks of Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and other virtual worlds all provide outlets for us to reinvent the self through the screen. Employing her own digital clone and the language of popular social media systems, Roxby Smith’s Hyperdentity renders a visual and aural chorus on the subject of the self within a contemporary, digital context.

Herbaceous, 2012
Software

A real-time installation that metaphorically reminds us of the importance of the vegetable kingdom. We are erasing our own existence when we take away the plants. It is also an exploration of parallel narratives, how to use an image to draw another one? This project is one of the authors experiments towards an interpretation of the cross‐synthesis of moving images.
