The Daily Slug
Izzy Bolt - The Daily Slug
The piece is a satirical news-round dedicated to slugs. Embedded within is a genuine concern for how species will meet and form agreements in our global climate crisis. Composed through video mixing of mould, moving obj models, GLSL, current affairs and opera (sung by Samantha Hart), the piece renders slugs as symbols of our current condition in society. We need to share spaces with others and allow fruitful reciprocal relationships to thrive. Theorised with a hand from anthropologist Donna Haraway, from her books ‘When Species Meet’ and ‘Staying With the Trouble’.
Izzy Bolt creates mesmorising live visuals, 3D scenes, cross-disciplinary events and installations. She is also a DJ and electronic musician. Her videos consist of real footage blurring into the digital, warping 360 videos and still images, geometry and GLSL. She records and manipulates live sound, plays with feedback and delay effects. Her installations include flashing text, lighting, sculpture and immersive sensory rooms. Her work is inspired by anthropological theory, visual anthropology, sci-fi and surreal internet content.
She participated in Hotel Generation 2019, Arebyte Gallery, and has exhibited work at Kings Place Gallery, London and Caustic Coastal, Salford.
