At the core of Satellite Lab is patented technology enabling the use of moving light sources within the frozen world of high speed imaging. Using a high speed cinema camera to arrest a moment of time and light sources moving at over 10,000 feet per second, this technology creates the ability to control the movement of light sources and the movement of the scene as independent variables. This offers a new way to control the representation of time, and to activate, explore and bring to life a world arrested in time. PlateLight specifically provides the ability to capture multiple lighting set-ups simultaneously on the same camera. Each is recorded as separate footage of the same live action, without time offset.
Carlo Van De Roer
Van de Roer’s creative practice explores how we learn about our world through imaging technology. As an inaugural member of the New Museums New Inc program he recently founded Satellite Lab to develop new in-camera technology. Carlo conceived the technology at the core of the Satellite Project. An artist living and working in New York, his work has been exhibited in the United States, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Spain and France, including M+B Gallery in LA, Suite Gallery in New Zealand, Cleveland Museum of Art, Haggerty Museum of Art, Hyeres Festival de Photogrpahie and the MUSAC Museum of Contemporary Art, Spain. Van de Roer has received the ADC Young Guns Award, the APA Award for Fine Art, named a Top 50 Photographer by Photolucida and received the Honorable Mention for the Paris Photo Prize. His work has drawn notice by The New York Times, The New Yorker, Interview Magazine, Vogue, Wired magazine and NPR.
