Sabrina Ratté is a Montreal-based video artist. Her work is formed of 2D images and found video footage that is treated with feedback, 3D animation and colour overlays to render a retro-futuristic non-space where only fragments of reality exist in a virtual world of forgotten dreams and consumer-grade nostalgia. We have featured her work before and I can safely say we will feature it again. Because she is one of the best things there is.
Here are two videos that form Activated Memory, a dual installation created for bubblebyte.org, featuring the music of Roger Tellier-Craig. It’s both exemplary of her style and the apotheosis of her technique. In short, it’s bloody brilliant.
