One of the first ambient video events.
An early pioneer of the ambient video art movement and video painting is Douglas R. Siefken. His first public exhibit of the Fluid Stills® art form was sponsored by SONY on 02/02/02 at the Julia Friedman Gallery in Chicago. Doug presented three images from his VCD based “mask” series. One image “Geisha” was projected on a large screen while the other two were on flatscreen TV’s. These images were inspired by Irving Penn and Ed Paschke. Doug is a founder and Chief Technology Officer of TransLumen Technologies, LLC. The Fluid Still® Art Illusions are a new genre of art merging with technology. The art imbues each digital frame with the integrity of an independent artistic still that cohesively changes over time without any visible or detectable change as that change occurs, creating a serene, temporally streaming subthreshold ultra-slow motion video composition. This tranquil and harmonious art form obviates the visual noise and environmental disruption presented by some other digital art alternatives. Doug has a version of the Chicago Skyline series that was installed at the Hotel Cass, Chicago in August of 2007. The piece is running on an 80” DLP screen in the main lobby. In 2008 Chicago’s Mayor Daley was flanked by two images from that series on large screens at a luncheon. http://ambientvideo.blogspot.com/
TransLumen Technologies (http://www.translumen.net) was founded in 2000 and applied for patents on imperceptibly different images or Subthreshold Extreme Gradual Change (STEGC) also called Fluid Stills® Art Illusions and the Pixel Shifter effect. These patents were subsequently awarded and additional patents filed. TransLumen creates and provides ambient video DVD’s, HD and custom installations. They specialize in ultra-slow-motion technology and video painting.
