ReVerse Butcher, Circle Series: Masculine with Mycelium, Video Excerpt, Made in Tilt Brush), Sept 2019.
This is a short excerpt from a video projection set commissioned by Sarah Curro. The first eight of my Circle Series artworks each have a video like this that all fit together into a 1hr projection art sequence.

ReVerse Butcher, Circle Series: Masculine with Mycelium, Art Timelapse Video, Screen Test 1 & 2, Sept 2019
Sarah Curro commissioned me to make a 1hr video projection set for an upcoming live performance show in late 2019. We experimented with several different approaches & looks before deciding on using artwork that I made solely in Tilt Brush. This was a screen test for an effect that hit the cutting room floor, but I feel it was a useful experiment! I have returned to this effect again, on other projects.
CIRCLE SERIES ARTIST'S STATEMENT
ReVerse Butcher’s “Circle Series” is an ongoing series of multimedia works that explore the complexities of the human form(s); cycles of life, information & nature; different ways of being suspended in space-time; and the idea(s) of evolution and fragmentation.
She often visits and re-visits this series of artworks in several different mediums (including but not limited to) traditional drawing, digital art, VR art (in Tilt Brush), film, projection art, photography, collage, poetry etc. because like the human form, ideas and artworks can never be wholly static and still, unless they’re dead (and even then, sometimes not, at least for a time).
Using circles as a visual metaphor, all the human structures explored in the series regardless of media, are linked by the idea of interaction & permutation. Each repetition can never be identical, and it is the progression through anomaly, through de- or re-construction, through experimentation and through re-imagining where rVb believes that breakthroughs occur. Each time the pattern insists on another expression, it fragments a little, and the fragments are evidence of progressive magick.
Circle Series works are occasionally collaborative, sometimes solo, always credited.
