Granular Synthesis aims to melt sound and image together in one medium where video becomes sound and sound becomes video. The image will be composed like music. Granular Synthesis creates immersive installations that get to all the senses of the visitor.

As part of the Free Radicals program of the International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR), V2_ presents Modell 5 of the Austrian artist duo Granular Synthesis.

Modell 5 is a projection of 10 by 3,5 metres showing the face the of Japanese performance artist Akemi Takeya (4 portraits, side by side).

Like a Francis Bacon painting the artists' face is being twisted and manipulated, in an electronical space holding her alter ego prison and exposing it to the mechanical manipulation of the computer. The overwhelming mechanical rhythms - supported by a lot of sub low - and the image manipulation create a sense of schizophrenia, like the body is being pulled apart and dissolves in electronic space. Modell 5 is an unprecedented visual, acoustic and physical experience confronting the visitor with one of the influential Free Radicals of electronic art from the nineties.

The official opening takes place on January 24 at 17.00 hours.

This presentation is made possible by EPIDEMIC (F) and the Mondriaan Foundation.
