New Video Works
In the late nineties, Juan Geuer began to experiment with video and is now exploring what he terms "aesthetic bonding." With the financial support of the Daniel Langlois Foundation, the artist is working on several video pieces that illustrate short sequences of processes such as churning water or the morphogenesis of cells and other primitive life forms. In the editing process, these patterns are placed in sequence and will be shown in forward and backward motions. Geuer selects patterns with scientific precision and according to easily observable categories, thus enabling the viewer to engage in a meaningful aesthetic experience. Working closely with new technologies, Geuer is attempting to bring his environmental sensibilities to the projected image.
