About the Video
Semiconductor are a visual art duo who don't see art and science as two different disciplines on either side of the creative coin. Instead, like a long line of artists before them, epitomized in the figure of the original Renaissance man, Leonardo da Vinci, they see the two practices as sharing many similar ideas. So their work explores natural phenomena, the idea of a world in constant fluctuation, and gives form to the seemingly invisible--the technical and the molecular--while marrying sound and image to create fascinating experimental films.
They've been an influential force in visual art, and their films sit in a sci-artistic wonderland somewhere between animation and documentary, utilizing scientific equipment and data to create their art, showing how one can inform the other and vice versa.
