Push 1 stop & Wiklow – “Membrane” [MUTEK]


Algorithmic performance for transparent materials

Push 1 stop & Wiklow’s “Membrane” merges audio-visual performance with installation art. Three-dimensional, volumetric shapes hover between the performers, caught in a haze of rising smoke. Through live manipulations, the performers engage in a playful exchange with their generative system. The work represents an alternative form of projection art, bringing digital forms into physical space.
