Van Gelder’s practice balances between two focuses for live performance and interactive installations – analogue audio/video synthesis and the modification or circuit-bending of pre-existing media-machines to facilitate their creation of unexpected and idiosyncratic outputs. She is interested in the idea of the “performing machine”, exploring the strange partnership or collaboration between artist and machine.

Van Gelder’s research is a form of media archaeology – discussing contemporary approaches to ‘composition inside electronics’ and new possibilities of ‘haunted media’ and ‘machine vision’. Van Gelder will be presenting some recent machines she has been working with and some ideas they are conjuring together.
