Part of ArtFutura 2021 London Festival of Digital Culture and Creativity
What reality? explores the concept of perception of the spaces that we inhabit. As in a dream, Blanca Regina & Pierre Bouvier Patron recreate the outside indoors merging architecture, found footage and their archives.
The AV performance presents a sonic improvisation with a visual elaboration, using different techniques and instruments.
The duo playfully respond to each other using music instruments as well as a video projection, questioning our notion of reality and perception: through the camera, the software, photography and sound.
Each of their performances is an ephemera show with painted slides along with videos of nature or urban landscapes onto video mapped and interactive objects. Digital coupled with analogic.
This is a pre-recorded live performance with Blanca and Pierre presenting a sonic improvisation with visuals.
