Artist Statement:


    After performing their first work together, the microrhythmic, minimalist A/V experiment Durations at MUTEK in 2014, Maotik & Metametric continue their creative association with Omnis. The duo’s latest immersive and multi-sensorial performance is inspired by the concept and technological reality of ubiquity. The ability to transfer information instantaneously all over the world dramatically alters the human perception of space, time and relationships, reducing experience to a “here and now” unit of being. Omnis explores the conditions of this contemporary temporality using a live generative audiovisual system, multiple degrees of optical illusion and distortion of the performance space to destabilize the environment and explode the idea of being everywhere (and nowhere) at the same time. Following impressive recent displays at Barcelona’s Mira, London’s BFI Digital Québec, Lima’s Visiones, MUTEK Mexico and several other festivals around the world, Omnis made its Canadian premiere at MUTEK 2015.
