    blob village live (cox18 version) 

    Last saturday (24/1) I went back to Milan for a live visual set in collaboration with Jack with our latest work. We played a 2hr set during the main act of a dance music event, a DJ set by the Bristol-based producer Alex Coulton.




    Our “Blob Village” is a post-apocalyptic environment populated by 3D animated hybrids, flesh collages with tech implants, internet-inspired characters, human bodies (and part of them) involved in repetitive dance gestures. The idea of this film performance is an attempt to build a live narrative made of digital paintings and sculptures, inspired by the role of GIF animation and appropriationism (as filtering/editing/selecting) in web based art.

    Image textures play an important role, Jack’s glossy materials and sci-fi patterns and lights contrasts with my Facebook’s palette camouflages and skin surfaces. Here’s a series of stills from animations we made with 3D objects found online (showed on a second projection):

    I also made a 3 hours warm up DJ set with a friend crossing experimental sounds about technology, post punk, dub, noise and techno.

    about blob village 

    Here’s a selection of compositions inspired by blobs, military and biomechanical aesthetics, featuring some stills from a series of animations I’ve been doing for “Blob Village”, a live visual set by me and Jack that we’ll be presenting in Milan on January 24 at Cox18.

    about camouflage 

    I’m starting to think about connections between templates and camouflage, here some examples of camo patterns based on well-known color palettes:












    about digital inspired camouflage in military context check the lecture “Waving at the Machines” by James Bridle (2012)

      I really like these. Makes me think of the more literal ways in which people go about obscuring their identities online, tor, multiple accounts, encryption, putting stickers on webcams etc etc. How to blend into the internet.

      Manuel, have a look at dazzle camouflage. Some WW2 warships used these abstract patterns to throw off the attacking ship. Rather than not being seen at all, they tried to distort what could be seen. So the attackers thought the middle of the boat was somewhere else entirely, and in some cases, they didn’t think it was one ship, but a whole squadron, and would be scared off. Might be interesting…
