Victoria Keddie is an artist working within cross disciplines of sound, video, installation, and performance. Keddie works with electronic sound and video composition, and choreography. Of interest are the fluctuations of electromagnetic activity, stereoscopic image and dimensional spaces, satellite debris and collision, image and sound synchronicity and collapse, time sensitivity, and the body in relation to the machine. Keddie is the co-director of E.S.P. TV, a nomadic TV studio that hybridizes technologies to realize synthetic environments and deconstruct the televisual for live performance. In early 2016, UNIT 11 was launched, a mobile transmission based studio and residency operated within an ENG news van. She is the founder and director of Optics Festival at Roulette, an annual festival involving video-based technologies and performance. In January 2018, Keddie will launch «Satellite Studio» in Garlock, CA, using a 10 ft C band satellite dish receiver to track LEO space debris for sonic compositions.
