The event creator says
RGB.VGA.VOLT is an audio/video synthesizer that enables realtime exploration of the rich materiality concealed beneath the consumer interfaces of Cathode Ray Tube monitors.

James Connolly is a video, sound and new media artist, instrument builder, curator and educator. His videos and realtime performances undermine the computational instincts of digital and analog consumer devices, liberating their latent audio/visual materialities. He teaches at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and is the Assistant Curator of the Roger Brown Study Collection.

Connolly hacks and rewires obsolete devices, shorting their video signals to reveal their black-boxed analog infrastructure. Digitally synthesized waveforms, audio playback, and feedback looping techniques are utilized to explore the rich visual spectrum hidden beneath the user interface of cathode ray tubes. This work is inspired by early video tools such as the Sandin Image Processor and the Paik-Abe Synthesizer, as well as, contemporary programming and errorĀ­-based approaches used in the creation of sound and moving images. RGB.VGA.VOLT revives an analog aesthetic that has a renewed power and potency in our present era of digital immateriality.
