a couple of months ago Renata Lemos Morais (@renatalemorais), curator of Trandusctions - a pop-up show at awesome Pause Fest in Melbourne - asked me if i would have liked to be part of her exhibition. she was particularly interested in some gifs i posted which had a tactile element to them. i decided to develop the concept a little further and here is the result.
also, the music was written and recorded by my former band members in a few hours at my place. after a few bottles of wine. the video is screening today in Melbourne. go check it if you are around!
these are the sort of things that happen on @ello

In our digital world what separates reality from computer generated imagery is thinning, vanishing. At times the eye is barely - if at all - able to distinguish one from the other.
In fact the eyes carry the sense that is most easily fooled by binary code born worlds.
Synesthesia is a momentum, an illusion that speaks to the touch over the sight and carries a force that tickles the eye. A haptic stimulus. A transduction.
