Steffen Levring – SIGNAL V


SIGNAL V – Steffen Levring (DK), 2016
HD Video, Sound, Colour
Duration 7:40 minutes

Working with extreme retinal and sonic scenarios, Steffen Levring employs forbidden or maximal light sources in various frequencies. He explores the physical and technological limits of video and its direct relationship and translation into sound. SIGNAL V consists of 5 autonomous sequences with varying degrees of pressure. Parts are captured directly by the camera sensor and using a variety of light generators, laser lights, obfuscating filters and agitating techniques. It is a powerful, raw and synthetic vision into psychedelic noise video today.
