Experience the presidential debates like never before! ReConstitution is a live audiovisual remix of the 2008 presidential debates. This nonpartisan hybrid of video art and performance exposes the themes, content, and structure behind the sound and images of the debate. The legibility of the content is preserved, upholding the debates as a vital information source for voters. Each spoken word is catalogued, analyzed, and displayed with the transformed video signal—the visuals react instantaneously to the physical movement of the candidates, the tone of their voice, and the words they speak, weaving an exciting and unpredictable narrative.
This concept and the supporting software are the brainchild of three media artists who form the group, Sosolimited. Comprised of 3 MIT graduates, Sosolimited has performed and installed work internationally, and has garnered a number of awards and accolades throughout the art world. One member of the team, John Rothenberg, is also an ADC Young Gun 5.
