Colby Richardson is a media artist and experimental filmmaker currently based in Toronto ON, Canada. Driven by a fascination with underused media technologies and by the way we interact with and value the technology at our disposal, Richardson’s work examines the artistic capabilities of tools and devices often unconsidered and dismissed.

Shot on Super 8 with in-camera edits, Convolve transforms pages from Greg Bright’s Fontana Mazes into a convoluted passage, using prisms, water refractions and warped chrome to obscure the already obscured path of The Maze. The score for this film is created by taking an analog-video feed of the film, and using the video output of the camera as an audio input. The black and white lines of the mazes sculpt the tone and structure of the audio in real-time, resulting in a jarring, alien soundscape.
