Sue Slagle is a video and light artist working in the live cinema field under the stage name SUE-C.
For the past 20 years, Slagle creates handmade videos and live media performances using Max/MSP/Jitter. Her works challenge the norms of photography, video, and technology by blending them all into an organic and improvisational live performance. Using a combination of digital tools together as an experimental animation "instrument," she synthesizes cinema from photographs, drawings, watercolors, handmade papers, fabrics and miniature lighting effects.
Slagle has traveled and taught extensively in Europe and the USA, and her solo performances combine live imagery with a soundtrack created in real time with her own voice, small sound effects devices and assorted electronic instruments. She has also collaborated with musicians such as Morton Subotnick, Luc Ferrari, Laetitia Sonami, Antye Greie (AGF), Golan Levin, Joshua Kit Clayton, Wobbly and Vladislav Delay. She has performed at a variety of national and international venues, including the SFMoMA, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco International Film Festival, REDCAT, EMPAC, Ars Electronica, MUTEK and SONAR. She is currently teaching Video Programming w/Max for Portland Community College.
Slagle will host Cycling ’74’s Live Visuals Production Workshop at Loop, using Max/Vizzie 2.0 to show how Cycling’s technology can help further explore the relationship between sound and vision.
