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.
Audiovisual live performance
Remote Viewing is a collaboration between a visual artist Liudmila Siewerski and an electronic musician Stefano Menion Ferrari. The performance consists of the intense real-time communication between music and visual images to create an immersive space in which the viewer becomes fully engaged. Remote Viewing is the practice of looking for traces of an object that is at a distance and has never been seen before. The audiovisual performance “Remote Viewing” is based on the process of creating possible scenarios in conditions of unpredictable development of events. By observing the changing shape of a wave, which is the main visual metaphor of the entire performance, the viewer observes its utopian and simultaneously dystopian nature of the narrative, but relying on visual artefacts to create multiple personalised alternative outcomes. The goal of the performance is to overcome these two fixed utopian and dystopian narratives, establish a connection with a dimension that is no longer limited to a certain character, but through music and visual art connected with a different principle of observation.
