THE LIVE EYE TELE-TUBES
Friday, Saturday, Sunday, during Festival Hours
Lower Church Street
The Live Eye Tele-Tubes is a sculptural installation created by students of Two Roads Academy and artist Camille Casemier for the Festival of Fools as a summer project. The Live Eye Tele-Tubes are stacked rectangular wooden tubes varying in shape, size, and their contents. These tubes operate as compartments that house various interactive environments providing viewers opportunities to play with light, shadow, live video, and projection. Students worked with both analog and new media technology to design and produce these light play spaces, drawing inspiration from kaleidoscopes to closed-circuit televisions. This project, hosted by Generator MakerSpace, encourages students of Two Roads Academy to practice design-thinking, carpentry, projection mapping, laser cutting, and interactive tech in an environment of encouraging makers.
Camille Casemier is a multimedia artist and performer, working in video and projection design. She aims to free video from screens by projecting onto designed structures. Video becomes a sculptural practice, its dimensionality defined by the way the projected light is captured. Fascinated by the behavior of light and its ephemeral qualities, Casemier projects video to emulate that magic.
Camille is a Vermonter who is finishing degrees at the University of Michigan in both Art & Design and Music, Theater & Dance. She is an active performer in South East Michigan, presenting work in the Detroit Fringe Festival and the Ypsilanti Experimental Festival, receiving the Guy Palazolla Memorial Award and the Stamps Creative Work Award from the University of Michigan.
