1990s: time, colour and computation

Avant Garde 90, 1990


Heads & Legs, 1990

Liège, Belgium

The first public performance of a "Correspondence" work, combining sound and image, was given at the opening. It was a collaboration with Jean-Pierre Husquinet.


The video constructs were at first recorded in real time onto video tape, but by 1990 they were realised directly from the computer and hence had no restriction on length. Both the generative time-based work and the systems paintings continued, with a specific emphasis on systems to select, vary and manipulate colour
