Jeffrey Bryant is a San Francisco based installation artist and creative coder who is interested in the intersection of art and technology in order to envelop people in an immersive experience. His work focuses on the way people perceive each other by allowing a user to take on the perspective of another individual who they may not entirely understand in order to bring human beings closer together. He recently graduated from the Gray Area Art & Technology's Creative Code immersive in the spring of 2015 and has since done three installations in just a short amount of time with many more currently in the works.
Jeffrey Bryant will be presenting "insolution" during our ART+TECH Festival MOVEMENT on October 23rd + 24th, 2015.
insolution is a motion based interactive installation. In chemistry, a solution is the result of one substance, the solute, dissolving evenly into another substance, the solvent, without changing its chemical composition. When an observer, in this case the solute, enters the frame, the outer lining of their body begins to rapidly dissolve and disperse across the screen in a way that closely resembles the solution process. Like an Alka-Seltzer tablet being submerged into clear water but in a much more explosive fashion, like heavy cream being stirred into a morning cup of coffee. This same solution process can be witnessed in society where communities are being dissolved due to gentrification, outliers are constantly being cast away, foreign countries become victims to daily bombardment, but yet we're all chemically composed of the same substances. This project intends to question these issues by visualizing it in this state of dissolution.
