  The Phototron is a modular analog visual synthesizer designed for real time performances. As the result of years of experimentation and research on photonic modulators, has been developed using hacked scientific technology as an artistic medium. The synthesizer creates a wide range of imagery through purely electromagnetic manual operated manipulations, without the help of algorithms. With a Fluxus attitude… Read more →

空 KU, the Void – an audiovisual concert project for photonics modulators, featuring Floating Spectrum’s computer vision and generative sound Transmediale&CTM Vorspiel

This performance is an immersive audiovisual experience, using hacked scientific technology as an artistic medium. The analog visuals derive from an oscilloscope, which generate light from electromagnetic fields deflecting electron beams. These warm and organic images are transformed via computer vision into real-time motion data, which drive the generative sound system. The audience is invited to immerse themselves in the… Read more →

Exhibition Behavioural Machines: Second Brain

Behavioural Machines SPEKTRUM | art science community Berlin The exhibition ‘Behavioural Machines’ explores the way in which mathematical models that describe complex natural phenomena have been used to create new audiovisual works appllied to domains such as light sculpture, robotics and abstract film. Chaos theory, swarm behavior and processes of emerging life in the biological world (morphogenesis) are the three… Read more →

Elektron Mandala

The circular geometries recall the symbolic designs of the mandalas, which are found across all cultures. In various spiritual traditions, mandalas may be employed for focusing attention, as a spiritual guidance tool, and as an aid to meditation.

Animal Factory: ONE million views!!!

I posted a video of a show made a few years before. This is an excerpt of the whole show that lasted about one hour. To my surprise was a huge success for a not so easy movie: more than 500.000 views in six months! For this reason we are planning to re-produce the show: who is interested can contact… Read more →

Watching You

  This work talks about us and our lives, considered as a data set, as generators of personally identifiable information, as objects of cluster analysis and sources for metadata matching algorithms. The vast amounts of data we create as we go through our lives, represents our actions, interests, intentions, communications, locations, relationships and behaviors. It’s aggregated by third party trackers  looking… Read more →

The Apophenia Trap

A site-specific installation and an audiovisual performance. An exploration of the so called Apophenial phenomena as a starting point to extend the reflection on the organization and interpretation of sensory information in order to represent and understand the environment around us. The human tendency to seek patterns and connections in random information or meaningless data, could be considered as an… Read more →

Q – Quantum ghosts

A/V Performance: human operated laser rays, crystals and synthetic diamonds, arduino, ableton live. This audiovisual set utilizes crystal filtered laser light that emanates from modified laser projectors producing spectacular reflections that recall the aurora borealis.At the onset the body of light may assume the form of a neuron network or microbiologic visions transforming into supernatural flashes of lighting or deep… Read more →

The 30th Chaos Communication Congress

The 30th Chaos Communication Congress (30C3) is an annual four-day conference on technology, society and utopia. The Congress offers lectures and workshops and various events on a multitude of topics including (but not limited to) information technology and generally a critical-creative attitude towards technology and the discussion about the effects of technological advances on society. For this special edition of the 30… Read more →

Dinamica Luce, light paint

Dinamica Luce Dinamica Luce is a series of images taken during our dance performances, shots capable of fixing the illusion of disappearance, the dynamic light animated by the movement. Images seemingly abstract and intangible, but they are analog and material in their essence: analog is the medium, prepared by mixing the tailoring practice with electronic technology, material is the instrument, the… Read more →

The Creative Apocalypse – 21.12.2012

The Creative Apocalypse – 21-12-2012 @ Platoon Berlin / creative.arte.tv Cosmic Dust – video projection I have contributed in this big trans-media-happening to save the world with the Cosmic Dust Project. The end of a cycle that lasts 26,000 years requires a critical reflection on the organization of our society, our collective behavior, the use of energy’s resources. The continuous… Read more →

Cloud Nine

  Cloud Nine is a structure designed to generate a sense of wonder at the beauty of light and color. The facility uses a highly engineered hidden, where the technology disappears and gives way to the natural magic of the body and light. A central computer manages a multiprojection video system, spatialized audio and motion sensors, making the experience truly… Read more →
