Artist Series videopaks are based on the GIF Looper template. The GIF Looper videopak is loaded with 14 GIF or video loops that repeat endlessly. 

About the artist:

Valeria Vicente L. (@valeriavlo) is a Mexican experimental videomaker, visualist, VJ, photographer and new media glitch artist, co-founder of the visual experimentation project, Ultrachina. She mixes the intervention of own and found film elements, both physical and digital filters and videosynthesis. With the use of software, code and analog methods; through the manipulation of inks, oils and other liquids, through the development of her own videofeedback plus collage technique, she creates new experiences in the field of visual exploration, atmospheres of adverse textures and contrast that generate through repetition in "loop" and dissonant jumps, digital psychedelia that plays with the worlds of the unreal and the performative action in every act.

At a young age, Valeria has performed, exhibited and projected her work in different galleries, museums and stages in Mexico and around the globe, such as MUTEK MX 16th edition, NRMAL 2020, Granada Theater in Dallas, TX, National Museum of World Cultures, INBA Mexican Plastic Hall and The Wrong Biennale in Barçelona.

 

     

    More about the GIF Looper:

     

    All time is mapped to the average BPM that is sent from the OP-Z app. There is not a hard start / stop for the loops, for several reasons. The loops start when the app is enabled but the screen is black until you trigger a loop. You can trigger the 14 loops from the bottom 14 gray keys. You can trigger them at 1/2 time by pressing shift, then the loop key. 

     

    There are effects you can enable from the numbered black keys. Some are multi effects and some effects use knobs to adjust parameters. The last two effects buttons “9” and “0” are multi-effects. “9” will randomly turn on/off and stack effects. This happens based upon the midi notes that your OP-Z is sending. Each note triggers a random number that might fall into the threshold for a given effect. So the more notes that are played the more likely effects will be turned on or changed. “0” functions the same way but for triggering the loops. If you want to just play music and let the visuals surprise you, record the Loop randomizer “0” for the full length of the motion track.

    Effect button “7” turns on analog glitch controls. The button must be held down or recorded to keep the glitch controls working. Control the amount of glitch by the WHITE LED knobs. Effect button “8” turns on color controls. When first enabled, the screen will be black or all gray. You need to adjust the GREEN LED knobs to control all aspects of color. There is lots of power in this one setting.
