Throughout the performance, these artists will fluidly reassemble into different groupings, creating a dynamic, ever-changing landscape of sight and sound. Observe celestial constellations dancing amidst immersive digital artistry, illuminating the interior of the dome. This grand spectacle offers a 360° panoramic view inside the dome, projecting intricate visuals and a 360-degree multichannel sound spatialization.
As an international timebased media artist, Claudia Schmitz explores boundaries: Limits of perception, real andimagined barriers, liquid processes, body discourses.She explores paradigms of media translation - as a solo artist and in collaborative projects. She uses sounddrawings,sculpture, multidimensional drawing, (live) moving image, AI and food - in real space, virtual and augmented realityto explore new forms of sound, space and experience. Exploring socio-urban fabrics, challenging hegemonial perception, sustainability, synaesthesia, identity in virtual and real space, re- vs. interactivity, inter- and transmediality, machine learning, artificial intelligence are main topics of her current artistic research. By passing through temporary stages, by discarding and re-inventing themselves, her pieces explore oscillating stages of being and non-being, of existence inside and outside the image. Relying on the spectators to trigger them, many of her pieces discuss the extent and possibilities of participation. internationally active artist and educator - won numerous awards and nominations - present in international public and private collections.
Luis Negrón van Grieken
My work involves exploring different formats that are always conceptually intertwined with a deep engagement with a specific subject matter.. Often, elements are presented through spatial staging, utilizing video, photographs, drawings, and sound works. Both digital and analog media are used simultaneously. I work with found materials and create time-based compositions from analog and digital media. These compositions are determined by both visual and musical structures. I embrace improvisation as a strength, and my approach to it is expressed through a deep commitment to experimentation and a love for the moment. I view transmedial scenography as a framework that enables me to realize imaginary spaces through language. Born in Caracas - Venezuela 1974.
