  Subtle Technologies: Motion Studies

After a big lunch at a local microbrewery, Fernanda D'Agostino, a visual artist, discussed her video installation artwork - Motion Studies - an interpretation of the scientific imaging system - digital particle image velocimetry used to analyse and visualise the air currents made by flying birds. Fernanda collaborates with scientists on commission that include traditional physical and mixed-media installations that take inspiration from fluid dynamics.

In the work, motion studies from Dr Bret Tobalske's research at the flight lab at the University of Portland were converted into video and montaged with slow motion footages of birds' flights.

In the installation, the footage is projected onto stainless steel 'wings' suspended in the air. Audience moving around the space generate air currents causing them to sway. 

In her artwork, Pool, a video installation featuring her daugther, she creates, what she describes 'an analogue for the idiosyncratic layering and juxtaposition that occurs in dreams, memories and stream of consciousness'.
