(freestanding aluminum and plexiglass sculptures with LED displays and sound by John Kamevaar; electronics by Nick Stedman)

The two characters in Flo'nGlo converse with each other through electronically-manipulated sound and a very low resolution video display, excluding the viewer. They have their own small screens, which are LED displays like those in UCBM and Swell. Flo's sound is a compellingly relentless flow of “scrubbed” source files, while Glo is a chorus of “granularized” voices. This is a hybrid work, combining video that mimicks our own screen fixations with programmed behaviours that determine on the fly how Flo and Glo will look and sound.
