exhibition opening, Vitrína Deniska
In series of installations Gradient, the filmmaker and multimedia artist Martin Blažíček proceeds from natural lighting conditions of space and by means of negligible interventions of grey levels he changes them into optic illusion.
By the real-time combination of old and new media, there is being created a highly expressive “film without film”, which is composed of extra machine-produced noise and violent optical attacks. Warning: contains stroboscopic lights.
* Commissioned by PAF within the Festivals of Live Cinema project for the Norwegian festival Screen City (October 2015).
