About Jeffrey L.

Baltimore City

Jeffrey L. Gangwisch's picture
I work with the interaction of digital and physical media with a focus on the human figure, often collaborating with various cinema and performance groups for video installation, cinematic exhibition, and new media distribution.  I am very grateful to have been living and working in Baltimore since 2011. A founding member of the Baltimore-based new media collective strikeWare, my most recent work experiments with augmented and virtual reality installations.  strikeWare will be launching... more

fishTank

This pop-up exhibition of Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality and video installations was on view for the first week in November 2019, and served as the strikeWare collective's coming out party.

    fishTank_sky
    12-Channel Video Installation 40 minute duration 12 monitors mounted on wooden rafters laid on the floor, showing captures from four videos placed underwater looking upward, each video feed duplicated and mirrored twice. Paper boats made from newspapers proclaiming recent unfortunate events sail over the view of an overcast day.
  • fishTank_sea (2018)

    fishtank_sea
    Augmented-reality installation. An overhead transparency projector rests on the floor with four interchangeable images of artificial aquatic interiors. When viewed through the accompanying mobile application, the viewer may see a three-dimensional virtual sculpture showing ornamental fish swimming with 3D photographs of human figures within an enclosed space.

Interactive/Generative Works

Projects with computers and networks.

  • Red Fantastic

    Procedural animation of two figures creating and destroying each other. I am currently re-working this project as networked iterations of figurative destruction and revelation.
  • Augmented Reality 3D Photograph

    This is an Augmented Reality 3D Photograph. I photographed a mode in Skanect with an Xtion Live Pro, imported into Unity, assembled with ARtoolkit for Unity, then built into an Android app. The photograph was not at all sculpted, but features artefacts from the scanning process. This video also shows works by artist Melissa Cormier (melissapenleycormier.com/ )and music by Sassy Kitty (soundcloud.com/sassy-kitty-productions).
  • creatr_flock

    creatr_flock, 2016 Jeffrey L. Gangwisch Interactive Installation. creatr_flock responds only when looked at. When creatr_flock realizes it has an audience, a growing number of polygons flock to greet the viewer(s), reacting to their movements. Creatr flock was created with support from a 2016 Technical.ly Baltimore Microgrant. It was built in Processing using Computer Vision and Box2D libraries. Though it can be exhibited many different ways, it requires a display surface, a computer (here using a mac-mini), and a camera.
  • labor_1

    This is a prototype version of a generative animation that searches for images through a procedural algorithm, masking them with the artist's body at work.
  • #imhere re:like Overheard Map of Now

    From November 6 to December 4 2017, the UK-based Overheard Map of Now organized international teams of artists working in either physical or digital mediums.
  • obj_i, 2016

    obj_i, 2016 Jeffrey L. Gangwisch Interactive Installation 3x Networked Holographic Cabinets 3x Networked Scopic Cabinets 1x Interactive Projection 3 self-portraits run in lap across all three holographic cabinets. If any cabinet registers a environmental sound, the self-portrait generated by that cabinet trips. A procedurally-generated horde of self-portraits run laps across the three scopic cabinets at different sizes and speeds. A large lens further distorts the figure.
