Activated Memory II
In Activated Memory I and Activated Memory II, Sabrina Ratté trains her skillful manipulation/experimentation using distorted 3D, and both analog and digital video processes upon a series of spaces both natural and architectural. They rotate and meld. Natural colors are overblown, filtered into a hazy Technicolor. It is easy to think of these videos in terms of memory’s crystallization and degradation. Light and space are made to ooze through the frames. Ratté’s videos are visual equivalents of the looping, reverbing feedback of the soundtrack (here provided by Roger Tellier-Craig, aka Le Révélateur). Indeed, she often works with musicians, creating videos in which sound and vision, if not created concurrently, feel unified.
