UR was one of the earliest human settlements (city) in "the fertile crescent". It is also a prefix that you use to suggest something in its early stage
of development, like proto — the dictionary says "UR- comb. form. forming words with the sense of 'primitive, original, earliest'.
-from UR: an evening of Media Performance
( ) UR is an installation/performance which creates an ambient space that the viewer can occupy and contemplate as it gradually changes over time.
The performance creates an unobtrusive environment in which viewer can meditate within the controlled space of the gallery. The work often deals wit
the juxtaposition between the outside environment and the inside environment. The piece mixes control and chance using loops and sound
created live and ambient sounds and images from outside.
Video and sound loops are mixed
in real-time with accompanying guitar and ambient sound from outside. The
sound created is somewhere between ambient and noise.
The installation stands alone in the gallery with looping sound and video that is interactive. The viewer can mix the video and sound with a keyboard and
mouse in real-time. Untouched, the work will loop continuously where the viewer left off.
( ) UR is available on CD and CD-ROM
Stills of the performance are available.
