On Aug 6 & 7 2022 the Estonian border town Narva-Jõesuu has staged the multimedia project DREAMING KURSAAL. The multidisciplinary mapping projection used different approaches: 2D and 3D graphics, generative and AI algorithms, animated illustrations, found and recorded video and sound material. We believe that our work can help bring the crumbling heart of Narva-Jõesuu back to life and tell a story that looks to the past and gives hope for the future.
Thousand Petals is an audiovisual experience developed using cross-disciplinary creative practices including sonic arts, instrumental music, generative graphics, fragments of moving images and costume designs, bringing you an immersive multimedia experience akin to a shamanic ritual. A collaboration between sound artist and composer Yana Fortep, new media artist Liudmila Siewerski and costume designer Polina Raudson, Thousand Petals adopts the frequencies’ regeneration method to explore the space between technology and spirituality, sounds and visuals, and personal experiences and collective memories. Witness how digital graphics resonate with analog instruments like gong, flute, kalimba and singing bowls, visualizing their frequencies and transforming them into ephemeral substances, while vocal vibrations speak with visual metaphors.
