[ISEA2015] Artists Statement: Gaëtan Bizien & Tioma Tchoulanov (UVB 76) — TRANSMISSION [V.2]

Artists Statement

Performance (2014)

TRANSMISSION [v.2] is an audiovisual performance that explores the place of electronic interfaces in our society. In this work, different media such as television, computer screens, monitors, GPS, drones, and satellite views are explored, remixed, repurposed, and disrupted. The design integrates the visual and noise disturbances from these technologies in order to produce a visual experience where degenerative alterations are part of the creative process. These aesthetic choices allow the audience to consider unpredictable and disruptive elements as tools of expression that evoke dystopia.
