Immersive visual noise 6: DROMOS by Maotik and Fraction

Posted on: December 15, 2013

DROMOS is a audiovisual performance created for the MUTEK 2013 festival held in Montreal in May and June 2013. The performance is based on  the work of French thinker Paul Virilio. Several years ago, after noticing the impact of speed in the organisation of our societies, he developed the concept of dromology (the science of speed in human society). Virilio sets the grounds for a new paradigm around new technologies, the way we interact with them and he starts questioning our future.

Artists Maotik and Fraction use these ideas on dromology  to create Dromos, an audiovisual universe where the so-called “mediatic” speed is the main factor of interaction between media.  They immerse the audience in a sensorial landscape undergoing constant construction and deconstruction leading to aesthetics accidents, mutant movements and poetical moments. The audience experienced each part of the show through the flow of granular textures, broken (unstructured) beats and generative visuals.

BTW: watch the Vimeo video in full screen mode on your screen!
