Gerard Couty (DE)
I´m a media-artist, since the early eighties I presented multimedia exhibitions, installations, events, videoworks, performances, etc, at a variety of international festivals (Ars Electronica, documenta), museums (Beaubourg) or networks (Infermental, Universcity, Minus Delta T, etc.) I was the head of an alternative cultural space in France, le "Frigo-Radio Bellevue" .
Since 1989, I work on>with divers interactive-systems.
My first profound experience on interactivity was the "Piazza Virtuale"- project by Van Gog TV, for the documenta 9 [1992]. I was the art director and designed all the interactive interfaces for the 100 days of the documenta´s interactive TV programme, presented on 3Sat. Via telephone as a remote-control, the tele-user was able to influence the programme.
After that, I did interactive stage design for a theatre and dance-piece, I conceveid a complex interactive system for the event. By different technical means the stage and the actors/dancers were connected to computer terminals, from where the spectators were able to participate and influence the course of the show.
Since, I developed interactive Midi-system [in collaboration with a programming-artist], with different softwares and sensors. This system, called >Club Automatique<, is an interactive multimedia performance-installation. The audience's movements in the space are analyzed through a sensor system and are retransmitted and interpretated audiovisually in real time.
In a parallel to my artistic work, I´m working on short films, TV-design, TV-graphism, web-design for different TV channels: arte, 3Sat, ZDF or Internet channels (canalweb)...
