The Nature of Being – Live cinema performance with Scanner (UK)
In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous – Aristotle ‘Parts of Animals’
What transcends our natural world? In digital technology we have the ability to invent and imagine
a multitude of possibilities limited only by the imagination of the creator, but is something lost in this
exploration, are we missing out on a sincere emotive response through the erasure of the real world?
The Nature of Being is a live interchange between artists charting a conversational movement of colour,
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 immersive 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.
