Corporate Coitus


coitus
Corporate Coitus //From the CD Giraffes
Andreas Karaoulanis: animation
David Hahn: audio (www.davidhahnonline.com)

“I composed Corporate Coitus while working as an audio technician at a company which produced background music for businesses. When the company CEO was interviewed by the on-line business journal WallStreetReporter.com, I used the audio portion of the interview as source material. I extracted the extra-verbal sounds—the “ahs” and “ums” and intakes of breath—for use in this new piece. The title of Corporate Coitus came about as I feel that sex and business are always somehow connected. I heard the piece as an imaginary sex act gathering intensity to a climax followed by a gradual de-tumescence.” David Hahn

Headaphonia


_MG_8414-4
Headaphonia is a procedure to develop forms that do not follow logical criteria, but are based only on subjective ideas and formal parallels, which invite the viewer to make personal associations.
Multilayered lights and sounds arise in which the fragility and instability of our seemingly certain reality is challenged.Headaphonia deals with the movement of the human body, mind and light. By doing so, new sequences are constantly created which reveal an inseparable relationship between motion and sound.Created with: Physical Movement / Lights / Live Camera / Pure Data / MaxMSP / Boss RC-50 / Viola / Zither /
A project by „CELSIUS-4“ artist group.

BYOB Prague – Interactive Table

111

Interactive image table during BYOB festival in Prague 2014.
BYOB is a celebration of the new world we live in and a glimpse of what computing could look like in the future. Today the internet is confined to screens. Tomorrow information will surround us, composing our surfaces, defining our spaces, enmeshing itself with the ether. A moving image is never an object, and when it is coupled with the increased flexibility of portable projection, the realm of experience quickly expands.
