‘In Harmony’ is a live video art montage that is a synthesis of Steven Visneau’s photographic eye for portraiture and Don Relyea’s generative digital portraiture, an explosion of pixels, color and glitch. ‘In Harmony’ is participatory and inclusive as attendees of the Aurora Festival will be photographed in black and white by Visneau and the digital glitch portraits will be immediately drawn by Relyea’s software live and projected onto a large nearby surface in view full of the participants. ‘In Harmony’ will bring all kinds of people together in one live generated video that showcases the individuality and rich diversity of our great city.
Steven and I had a blast with our installation this year. We were in Aja Martin’s section in Klyde Warren Park. This years Dallas Aurora was pretty packed, almost too packed. We were slammed with attendees waiting for 20-30 min to be a part of our installation all the way to the end. I am hearing we had at least 50,000 people attend this year. It speaks volumes to the demand for this kind of thing here in Dallas. I hope they consider doing multiple days next time.
