Sightings: Teengirl Fantasy, “KOI POND” (Ivy Meadows Visual Dub)

TEENGIRL FANTASY – KOI POND (Ivy Meadows Visual Dub) from Camilla Padgitt-Coles on Vimeo.

Brooklyn’s Ivy Meadows — aka Camilla Padgitt-Coles — is one of a growing number of millennial videographers busy blurring the lines between documentary video and artistic collaboration. This “visual dub” of Teengirl Fantasy’s performance at Panda Bear’s #neverforget 9/11 show at Governor’s Island is the last in a series of visual interventions beginning with the live spectacle itself. During Teengirl’s performance, Camilla brought out the ole’ smoke machine and projected a 13-minute demo-reel combining footage shot specifically for the event with warped clips from an old nature documentary. Passed through a handful of woozy, candy-colored manipulations in post-production, the raw tape for this live video alternates between the physical presence of Nick Weiss and Logan Takahashi, the demo-reel, and a giant live feed of the musicians performing in real-time. Camilla sums up the surreality of the evening in words: “Panda Bear’s set looked like a fog color explosion. It was crazy because the 9/11 lights were right next to the island. And there were all these little silver spectres floating around in the light… they looked like ghosts.”
