Cascade ACM SIGGRAPH presents…
The ForeverScape Video Mix and Effects 300-Page Party Opening Night New Art and Music
- Saturday, January 8, 2011 at The Globe
- Live video editing: effects driven by music and artist VJ Vance Feldman
- Featuring music by “Out of Time” (6:00 pm), Gemini Mars (7:30 pm), “Sad Music for Happy Humans” (9:00 pm) and “Let’s Go Outside” (10:30 pm)
Come and enjoy a contemporary CG artist work both intuitively with images and intentionally with digital video, music and programming technology. In addition to the original artwork, the artist will use his own custom-built software to project a sound-reactive version of the ForeverScape for opening night. This exhibit will celebrate crossing the 300-page threshold. If you haven’t already, see the scape at “ForeverScape dot com” (not as good as real-life). This event is more experiential than talk-based.
Computer Graphics Details
Using German-based software VVVV (or V4 for short) with patch-based programing language that essentially connects boxes with wires (see screen capture). The object-oriented programming, primarily in C is used to manipulate 3D, MS DirectX and graphics cards for video. The demonstration will use applied effects, tweeked in real time and driven by music.

About the ForeverScape
“The ForeverScape was born September 26, 2009. ‘There are worse things to be obsessed with’ some say. Is it biographical? Well, it has become something beyond me, but I can’t help being infused in it. In a strange way, the ForeverScape creates me more than I create it. It haunts my dreams, flashes at me while walking to the local pub to draw. My initial motto was, ‘It goes, until I do.’ A bit bleak, but the ’scape is really just an excuse to persue that which is unfollowable.” — Vance Feldman.
