Monika ProffittMonika Proffitt
Seattle-based artist Monika Proffitt will talk about the process of creating her latest work, The River Project. Within the structure of the installation that reflects a river's bed, the speakers' words flow away from the tributaries of their origin. For this interactive light and sound installation, she used a simple digital voice recorder, monitor speakers, LED lights, blown glaSS, BS2Sx microprocessors, and collaborated with technologist Brian Karr to use max/msp software.

VJs aren't just for MTV anymore! Using skills learned from mixing music has metamorphed into unique live experience. Only you can see it. Epiphanous has worked with a wide variety of artists and musicians around Seattle performing live visual video shows based on the music mixed in realtime.
