Images of passersby's are captured on video camera & projected on "memory cubes" in
They are dropped in to a bleak, artificial landscape. The cubes bounce & spin around the landscape
like dry leaves. Tossed & disturbed by invisible forces, the memory cubes gradually pile up in to
trembling drifts as the night progresses. When the cubes collide with each other or with the walls & structures
populating their artificial environment, they trigger evolving electroacoustic sounds.
Memory Cubes was created by Bentley & Simon Jarvis, a father/son multimedia production team. Bentley
has taught in the Integrated Media department of OCAD University since 1984. Simon studied Earth Sciences
at the University of Waterloo & is currently investigating the artistic applications of hyper-dimensional
transformations & deformations.
