Light Beams Dance

François de Costerd

Light Beams is a series of abstract video art films originally based on footage of video slot machines and rush hour traffic. This most recent project is a visual study of Western civilization dealing with the allure and implications of the consumer society and capitalist culture. This project stems from a constant mixing and recycling of images from various sources and echoes the cycles of consumption at the heart of de Costerd’s conceptual focus: transportation, territory, the built environment, among others.
