Artist Statement:


    Inspired by new technologies and network theory, System uses custom software and generative audiovisual synthesis, manipulated and controlled by gestural interaction and touch interfaces, to explore relationships between modern society and individuals, communication strategies, power and technological progress. The work offers an allegory for a globalized and interconnected world in which individuals seek to make sense of their experience and attempt to retain some freedom of action. The performers assume the role of this individual, interacting in real-time with audiovisual processes that affect the formation and behaviour of their output, while responding to the network of data and information generated by sound and image. The aim is to avoid chaos or a totalitarian takeover by the system. Projected onto a giant screen, System illustrates the reflexivity and tension at the core of a contemporary experience mediated by technology.
