Ran Ancor - 空 Ku, the Void - Version Kū, the Void is a synesthetic, live-generated audiovisual experience that combines hacked scientific technology and custom-developed software to expressively explore the ephemeral/immaterial. Rich, evolving oscilloscope visuals (Ran Ancor) are synchronized via computer vision (Abe Pazos) with a lush, responsively synthesized soundscape (Mei-Fang Liau). In this hybrid system, sensitively fluctuating analog signals, fine-tuned data analysis, and human intuition perform together as one coherent living being.
Rainer Kohlberger is an Austrian born freelance visual artist / film maker living in Berlin. His work is primarily based on algorithmic compositions with reductionistic aesthetics influenced by flatness, drones and interference. Within his works there always lies a layer of noise, that fascinates him as a sense of the infinite, which is both the ultimate abstraction and inveterately fuzzy. In his films, installations and live performances maximum forms of intensities come into play. His work has won several prizes internationally. brainbows Kohlberger uses digital-projection technology in a radical way. Through impulses and waves of pure light, the intentional overload of the human perception apparatus leads to visual impressions that appear exclusively in the literal »eye of the beholder«. Layers of noise, drones and stroboscopic lights unfold. Image surface and image space meld into one (consciousness-)state, in which categories such as being and non-being, material and immaterial appear obsolete.
