Sosolimited’s ReConstitution 2008

ReConstitution 2008 – Live Presidential Debates Remix by Sosolimited from Sosolimited on Vimeo.

You, Me, & The Other Guy (ReConstitution 2008) from Sosolimited on Vimeo.

my cousin saw the first performance of Sosolimited‘s ReConstitution 2008 in boston at the ica. she liked it, and thought some of you might, too.

the work is a live remixing, analysis, and datavisualization of the contents of the presidential debate: image, text, gestures, etc. my cousin thought that the event did indeed enhance her experience of the broadcast.

press release:

ReConstitution is a live audiovisual remix of the 2008 presidential debates. This nonpartisan hybrid of video art and performance exposes the themes, content, and structure behind the sound and images of the debate. This concept is the brainchild of three media artists who form the group, Sosolimited. Comprised of three MIT graduates, Sosolimited has performed and installed work internationally and has garnered a number of awards and accolades throughout the art world.

there will be two more realizations of the piece, coinciding with the next two presidential debates:

October 7th in NYC at the Art Directors Club.

October 15th in DC at the Corcoran.

here’s a review (with images) from the bostonist.

if you go please let me know! i hope to make one of the shows.
