First launched at 2004 showcasing flash movies, but since then evolved to a hopefully updated blog with news, illustrations, and whatever else seems to be suitable.

°Aeonio is a dialogue between organic environment and related data abstractions.
It complements presence with visual blueprints and acoustic fragments as a real-time process.
The multimedia piece follows several approaches to emphasize a core of data: impulse.

The artwork co-narrates by the elements of visual arts, experimental dance and contemporary music.

It is meant to be performed live as a vivid presentation for public audience, on public stages
or outdoor sceneries.

°AEONIO uses a multilayer media setting to achieve a converging communication between its narrative
elements. It offers a journey through morphing landscapes and imaginary organisms, stimulating
the audience to continuously perceive new associations of alternating arguments.

As an evocative circulation of influences by physical, acoustical and visual counterpoints,
it reflects the boundaries of existence and communication within this fragile questioning.

Media environment is created with Live Camera / Kinect / Processing / Quartz Composer / MaxMSP
/ Ableton Live / Boss RC-50 / Viola / Akkordion / Percussion Bells / Metallophon / Sensula / Metronom.

erhu for my people

Been working on a bestbefore dvd production with george kartalos, hopefully will be released on march 2010. Try to blend old flash movies and new videos with audio and music patterns. The result is kind interesting and unique because there are beats and pieces back from 2004  combined with new stuff and technologies.

The different formats of each movie cause a little trouble because most of the videos are rendered in  PAL dimensions, but..thats the beauty after all….old and new staff together.
