Ran Slavin - Insomniac City
Live performance with customized audio visual software.

Insomniac City by Ran Slavin (DEAF04) from V2_ on Vimeo.

The Israeli audiovisual artist Ran Slavin plays Insomniac City, a composition of constantly changing images, a lot of sound and computer music. On DEAF04, he uses custom-designed software to create an improvised mix of reality and urban illusion.

Slavin performs an interlaced mix between reality and urban illusion, representing the current daily flow [Tel Aviv/Europe], and an unstable radical shift of the city space/time.

Insomniac City explores through video and sound, the hidden psyche in the urban texture and offers a wide gaze on concepts of transit and shift, while weakening the boundaries between reality and illusion, present and future, radical architecture and digital dislocations. Through an insomniac-like stream, the gaze drifts from external perception to internal suspension, while what we see - and what we think we see - mixes and blurs into a twilight zone.
