For nearly a decade, artist HC Gilje has explored in his works the potential of using video projections as light sources.
In 1999-2000, he developed the project VideoNervous as his first experiment in projecting video into three-dimensional spaces and onto physical bodies.
In 2008, HC Gilje released VPT, a free, multipurpose realtime projection software for Mac and Windows.
HC Gilje works with installations, live performance, set design and single-channel video. Gilje has presented his work through different channels throughout the world: in concert-venues, theatres and cinemas, galleries, festivals, outdoors and through several international DVD releases, including 242.pilots live in Bruxelles on New York label Carpark and Cityscapes on Paris-label Lowave. He was a member of the video-impro trio 242.pilots, and was also the visual motor of dance company kreutzerkompani. Gilje initiated the project "Conversations with spaces" (while working as a research fellow at Kunstakademiet in Bergen 2006-9) where he explores how audiovisual technology can be used to transform, create, expand, amplify and interpret physical spaces. Born 1969 in Kongsberg. Educated at Kunstakademiet in Trondheim 95-99.
Hc Gilje's recent work 'Blink' was part of the 'Trust' exhibition, ISEA 2010, Dortmund.
