TAD ERMITANO’S “DEUS EX MACHINA” AT 1335 MABINI

Tuesday, February 24, 2015

Tad Ermitano graduated from the Philippine Science High School in 1981, and studied Biology at the University of Hiroshima. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy from the University of the Philippines, but trained in film and video at the Mowelfund Film Institute.



He currently designs and mixes sound for digital features and produces video for projection in a variety of stage/concert contexts. He has also collaborated with choreographers of Ballet Philippines in the creation of several video dance pieces, and was the sole Filipino artist selected to exhibit at the Ogaki Biennale 2006 New Media Festival and the Main Juried Exhibition of ISEA 2008.

His single-channel films are distinguished by a playfulness underpinned by a dreamlike logic that reflects his training in philosophy and the sciences. His videos include Selection 14344, Sausage, The Retrochronological Transfer of Information, and Hulikotekan v. 2.1, the last two of which have been screened at a number of international festivals, including the Yamagata International Film Festival, and the Hong Kong International Film Festival.

His facility with a broad range technologies has caused the focus of his work to expand to include the use of computers in performance and installation contexts. Notable among these is the computer-augmented video installation Twinning Machine. Aside from creating computer-augmented video installations, he performs audiovisual pieces, both solo and as part of the experimental media group The Children of Cathode Ray.
