Exploring the realms of a digital consciousness, Virginia Commonwealth University’s Institute for Contemporary Art presents Synaptic Bliss, a four-channel video by Aziz and Cucher during the Fall Line Fest this Friday and Saturday (information on the music, art and food event at falllinefest.com). Anthony Aziz and Sammy Cucher, the Brooklyn-based duo of faculty members from Parsons the New School for Design, are pioneers in the field of digital imaging and post photography. Commissioned by the Festival Villette Numerique in Paris in 2004, their video installation is a barrage of color and form that uses the human body as a visual language to blur the lines between the body and its environment. The two artists will discuss their innovative work Friday at 4 p.m. in the Grace Street Theater. Admission is free. azizcucher.net.
