Visuals for a 33min performance. Generative + Animation + Manipulated found footage to fit the storyline.
This room had one screen behind the performers, one in front, one on the floor and one on each side, so for me it was obviously important to think about how the sides of the room interacted with each other and how the video would play out in the space.
The music was about "the emotional, philosophical and metaphysical implications of a biological lifecycle and the eternal recurrence of it." For me each track had a very clear and different sense of movement, which corresponded to the lifecycle: either growing, travelling, blooming, imploding, exploding etc and direction of flow is what I played most heavily with.
This was performed at the opening night of ´T-10’ new cultural space part of SKP-S in Beijing.
It involved 17 projectors over a room 25m long. I created content for the walls, floor, and two screens at the front - one behind the performers and a gauze in front of them. The tech was powered by United Visual Artists.

Editing old posters into animation.
I wanted to bring movement to a poster created in 1989.
I scanned it in, used photoshop to separate the layers, used After Effects to give them movement and then VDMX to manipulate the colours and effects.
I added another dimension but filming my own hands opening and closing to extend the video.
This was created to be part of an all night long VJ set at Diskothek Melancholie II
