framefest

« back  next »

Together the re:sorb crew, I initiated and organised the framefest series of audiovisual live events.

We occupied abandoned spaces such as an old freight-train yard or empty appartments in a ready for tear-down high-rise building block and filled them with an exciting mash-up of live-visuals, sound and urban street art.

The framefest series was created to give local and international artists a platform to meet, communicate experiment, merge, share and present their audiovisual live performances.

All events were non-commercial and supported by cultural funds. They were open to everyone and attracted a multifaceted audience including local residents, artists & art consumers, media researchers & practicioners, as well as the young urban avantgarde who primarily came to party. The first event was done in collaboration with Mark Amerika, a net-art pioneer and live-video-veteran from Boulder, Colorado.

I had the privilege to design the flyer for the first event.
The spatial distribution of the graphical entities represents the structure of the abandoned train-yard that served as our initial location:
