||Olga Mink Performance|
Olga Mink a Netherlands-based video artist, will be performing an excerpt of The Nature of Being, an audiovisual composition originally performed with musician Scanner (Robin Rimbaud). The Nature of Being has been performed at various festivals and events throughout Europe and most recently at EMPAC in Troy, NY as part of the Onedotzero festival.
The Nature of Being is an interchange between artists charting a conversational movement of color, music, texture and image. It is a travelogue of invention, taking the romance of the cosmos through a metaphysical adventure. Sometimes familiar, sometimes ambiguous, this performance transforms and mutates across the borders of recognition:
footsteps become rhythm; wind becomes melody, as cinematic images reflect, compliment and contrast the soundtrack. Their goal is towards building an emotional relationship to the projections and sound, a work that seeks a departure from the familiar digital paths, striking the heart, the soul, and the mind.
The Nature of Being is a performance guided by contemplative sound and image, creating an abstract story yielding to a state-of-fluxcinematic experience. By use of triple screen projections, panoramic views and surround sound, sensuality is re-imagined, reinterpreted, connecting multiple realities in a multi-angled perspective, merging and juxtaposing various points of views.
This performance is being sponsored by CRCA and Calit2 - bringing to campus the innovation of artists who utilize multimedia in the pursuit of new experiential expression.
