It Came From the Internet: Sabrina Ratté
Introducing Sabrina Ratté, a video artist from Montreal. Her eerie work involves creating new digital environments that "adapt to different contexts, online and IRL, as well as live performances, installations, or projections." Check her out here, you won’t regret it.
Who or what are you?
My name is Sabrina Ratté, I live in Montreal, Canada and I make videos. I collaborate a lot with musicians, for finished pieces as well as in live settings. Parallel to my solo work, I am the visual part of Le Révélateur, with the electronic music composer Roger Tellier-Craig.
How do you describe your artwork?
My video work proposes different visits inside architectural environments and landscapes, based on video images generated by electronic signals. I’m interested in exploring the possibilities of creating 3D environments without using specialized 3D softwares to achieve them, but rather by using analog video equipment and digital collage. The structure of my videos is also based on rigorous editing and a very formal approach, reminiscent of my background in film production. My videos can adapt to different contexts, online and IRL, as well as live performances, installations, or projections
