MoMA display screens
2004 http://retnull.com/MoMA_qt.html

9-channel video system: nine 30" HD monitors, 10 computers, real-time image generation, algorithmic control

A real-time algorithmic video installation that is permanently in the lobby of the newly re-opened Museum of Modern Art in NYC. The content is generated live. Images and actions appear across multiple screens. If you watch the screens indefinitely, you will never see exactly the same thing twice.

The system algorithmically selects from a catalog of still images, then selects from a repertoire of action sequences to apply to these images. Actions occur on anywhere from one to nine screens. Multiple actions occur simultaneously across the image field.

The museum regularly provides the system with new still images of temporary shows and the permanent collection, as well as new text information generated as needed, so the content displayed is always new.

MoMA display screens is a project of MoMA, Imaginary Forces, slinc, and Kurt Ralske. Ralske designed the system architecture, co-designed the image sequences, and was solely responsible for implementing the image processing code.


In 2007, Ralske completed the interactive video accompaniment for Mathew Rosenblum's RedDust Opera.

Ralske programmed and co-designed a 9-channel video installation that is permanently in the lobby of the MoMA in NYC. In 2007, he received a Rockefeller Foundation Media Arts Fellowship grant. In 2003, his work received First Prize at the Transmediale International Media Art Festival in Berlin, as a member of the video ensemble 242.pilots. He is also the author/programmer of Auvi, a popular video software environment in use by artists in 22 countries.

In 1999 he self-released two albums on his miau-miau label, one under his own name Kyrie Eleison and the other <<amorpheus>> as Cathars. In 2001 he released another two albums, Kurt Ralske Amor. 0 + 01, and as Cathars Early Bells and Voices. The Amor. 0 + 01 album featured several digital video clips. Since then he has focused on digital video. His video installations and performances are created exclusively with his own custom software and his work has been exhibited internationally, including at the Guggenheim Bilbao, Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Montreal Museum of Contemporary Art.

In the mid-eighties he was a guitarist in the bands Nothing But Happiness and Crash. In the late eighties and early-nineties he released three albums as Ultra Vivid Scene.

1. Konchu Flambé 昆虫フランベ (6:47)
Night falls like a knife. Evolve ...or get out of the way.
2. Lucida (0:29)
3. Front-side Ollie (3:40)
Asphaltum acts as an acid-resist to etch the happiness in my head.
4. The Reflection of Skin (0:40)
5. Sperm Cracked the Egg * (5:34)
Broadcasting at the frequency of youth...
6. Edna White (6:28)
A breath. The Moon. A sigh like the ocean. Edna ...(that young, enigmatic girl!)
7. Daisy-Dangled Daydream (3:51)
8. Patina Swirl * (8:18)
Out of the miracle of nothing-you exist.
With your butterfly breath-
Call your spit ...site-specific sculpture.
Charm the skin off an insect.
Tattoo the world with your chutzpah.
You want to hoodwink your "maker."
You want to start a religion ...Practice random acts of kindness.
Is this vicissitude?
Call it solipsism.
Oh how in my head-the patina swirls.
Love like art spirals outward.
9. 25¢ for the Next 2 Minutes (0:04)
10. Stasis Versus Motion * (5:54)
Lollipop. Sky-drop. Safe in my cocoon. What's a supermodel to a burn victim?
