AN EYE-POPPING ARRAY OF AUDIO-VISUAL PERFORMANCES SHOWING US WHERE DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY MEETS NATURE
Celebrate the close of the first ever Brighton Digital Festival with a night of audio-visual delights and surprises, including stunning performances by audiovisual artists, Quayola & Mira Calix, and Paul Prudence.
Digital Festival goes out with a bang, a buzz and an eye-popping array of performances to dazzle the senses.
This brilliant line-up of audio-visual performers translate nature into immersive digital experiences.Data is Nature features the Brighton premiere ofNatures by renowned musician Mira Calix and visual artist Quayola. In this performance, the organic behaviours of plants become part of an audio-visual world where the natural and the artificial coexist harmoniously. Data is Nature also includes Paul Prudence, a London-based musician and visual artist, known for his stunning audio-visual performances, which use data visualisation and generative techniques to give us striking new views of nature. Prudence also meditates on art, science and nature at his excellent blog,http://dataisnature.com, the inspiration for the title of the performances.
