Universe Energies Sustain Us
A process-based video and multi-channel installation exploring the translation and regulation of data by the body and technology; themes of transparency and difference, cultural overlay and the aesthetics and consequences of error.
First presented as an 8-channel installation at the Cooper Gallery, Dundee, 2001. A single channel version was created in 2002,
with music by scottish artist Norman Shaw
"This casual database of material is reprocessed and manipulated into a video of multi-dimensional self-reflexivity and layered recycling, video keying, saturated colourful fidgety pixellated abstract mosaics in an excessive megamix: what Iacono refers to as 'babble... the language of languages', the piece is a kind of abstract metadata, data about data".
