Victoria Keddie Wave Farm Artist-in-Residence (Video)
The Wave Farm Residency Program is pleased to welcome Victoria Keddie (Queens, NY). Her “Unit 11: The Satellite Chapter” utilizes Unit 11, a mobile studio that focuses on transmission based research and practice within a customized E-N-G news van, that has been reoutfitted with analog electronic tools for the focus and exploration of electromagnetic signal based media. Broadcast grade analog video editing and manipulation equipment pair with modular video and sound equipment via a series of patch bays that also allow for multiple auxiliary inputs and outputs. CRT monitors line the back wall of the van framed by playback devices ranging from VHS, BetaSP, and DV cam. An Otari stereo reel to reel sits on a rack under a custom radioOrgan--a hand-crafted modular FM transmission system built from obsolete electronics by artist Ed Bear and developed during Bear’s Wave Farm Residency in 2015. The most recent addition to the studio is a modular 10 foot satellite dish C band receiver. At Wave Farm, Keddie will research and record. New works will be created on-site using these recorded sessions.
