Aude Rose – 20:00

Aude Francois also called Aude Rrose is multi-disciplinary artist living between Paris and Berlin, working with performance, photography, sound and live video. She regularly presents her video performances in international festivals.

Her imagery plays with narrative structures, developing dreamy and intimate universes, exploring various forms of interplay between body, images in motion, deconstructive narrations and self-mythology. Her performances articulate live scenography protocols integrating video as an environment medium, often using real-time camera feedback, considering the black box as a possible oneiric space, where sounds and images communicate in a poetic and narrative journey.

She has developed several successful collaborations with international acoustic and electronic musicians, sound and video programmers, producing series of audio-visual performances where she manipulates time and images in evolving structures.

Mey Lean Kronemann & David Sanz Kirbis – 21:00

Mey Lean Kronemann is a media artist from Berlin with a passion for robotics and emergent behaviour. Her works have been internationally exhibited and presented at media art festivals and conferences, and were awarded by Digital Sparks (Honorary Mention, 2008), Japan Media Arts Festival (Jury Selection Work, 2011) and Art of Engineering (prize award, 2012). Mey has studied Interaction Design in Malmo, Sweden, and Product/Interface Design in Potsdam, Germany, where she graduated in 2009, and was a research fellow in 2010.

David Sanz Kirbis is a multidisciplinary experimenter interested in how things work and in finding creative solutions to technical projects. He is currently working as researcher towards a PhD in the field of Art and Technology at the Universidad Politecnica de Valencia. With an eclectic background as computer technician, product design engineer, and independent filmmaker he is interested in design, mechanics, electronics, programming, robotics, philosophy and photography. David was recently hosted as fellow of the STUDIO for Creative Inquiry, directed by Golan Levin, at the Carnegie Mellon University.

David and Mey are currently working on their project Tower of Babel, an emergent robotic sculpture that builds itself. A pack of small, autonomous robots is trying to climb on top of each other in order to form a tower. At some point, the tower gets too high and the robots fall down. This project is supported by Fundación Telefónica’s VIDA Art and Artificial Life International Awards.

Vanessa Ramos-Velasquez – 20:00

Vanessa Ramos-Velasquez is an interdisciplinary artist, multimedia specialist, and researcher from Brazil and the U.S., and currently based in Berlin. A Fulbright scholar at the University of Kansas, she pioneered a special program in Interdisciplinary Studies in Art, Design, Video & Film and Choreography. Her transmedia experiments led her to develop an artistic practice in performance art, installation, videoart, videodance and cameraless films. As a choreography student of the late Labanotation expert Janet Hamburg, she danced with the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company.

She is currently collaborating with legendary electronic musician/producer A Guy Called Gerald for her interactive performance Coded Narratives, and with sound artist Derek Holzer will debut her live videomicrography performance.

Geso- 21:00

Also known as Pablo IA, is an active/creative mind involved in different art and design fields. As graphic designer and art director for his own studio GeeOhDee, as artist exhibiting his work in galleries and festivals (previously in collaboraton with his brother, Javier IA), as Dj, Vj and promotor of electronic music events and of course, as publisher and curator for his main project: Belio Magazine, an art publishing house and organization who runs exhibitions, concerts, festivals, conferences and workshops, apart of publishing magazines and books since 1999. Pablo IA actually lives and works in Berlin.

Geso is the moniker he uses for his most personal and experimental work, specially focused in video-art and visual performances. His videos are a combination of glitches, geometric graphics, landscapes and images from nature, evoking a short of lost paradise or residual image from a better world. The concepts that often dominate his work are related to different levels of communication and its paradoxes, the digital language and errors, usually revealing a connection with different aspects from human conscience and spirituality, like altered states of mind.

Alex Haw – 22:00

Alex will present a series of atmos projects that explore optical space, architectural interactivity, participatory surveillance and 4-dimensional interactivity – all at breakneck speed, with 1000s of slides.
Alex Haw is director of the award-winning UK art/architecture practice atmos

His work, which spans the scales from buildings to installations, masterplans to furniture, seeks a synthesis of mind & body – creating meaningful, pleasurable, enduring and immersive experiences.

Much of his work involves cutting-edge fabrication technologies and digital mapping, exploring the connectivity of people to their precise place in the world.
