KIMA – a holographic telepresence performance by Analema Group will showcase first run of the project at Kinetica Art fair with two performances only – 27th February at 7.30 and 1st of March at 7.00 pm.
Analema Group is also giving a talk at Kinetica at 1 pm on the 1st of March.
KIMA is a holographic visual and sound performance which reflects on communication via telepresence. The art piece is based on the physical conditions of cymatics – the study of physically visible sound wave patterns.
The word ‘Kima’ literally means ‘wave’ in ancient Greek; in this telepresence environment, participants experience the wave form both in its sonic and its physical form as a travelling, ever changing stimulus – as an interface of their actions and interactions.
In project KIMA, the space itself and its exploration are central. A dark space by its very nature offers an immersive environment. How do we respond to this environment – once we sense the presence of the Other? The dichotomy between you and me ceases to exist and gives way to an endless echo reverberating in both spaces. Information on the Other’s presence is only ever provided through sound and synesthetic analogue of the sound – in its visual form.
KIMA project offers an alternative view on communication, transcending physical boundaries and foraying into the realm of invisible tele-streams running through space.

‘Khaos’ live performance
Saturday, 11th of February, 13 pm
@ Kinetica 2012 / MAMAs 2012
followed by the artists’ talk
The project is an interactive visual and sound performance, in which a performer dissolves movement into light created by 3D visualization of fractal manipulation. ‘Khaos’ is investigation into the relationship between breathing, sound, movement and energy based practice and its reflection in a live artistic stage experience. It is aimed to explore the notion of space as field full of potentiality that can reveal itself through succession of movements in a dance.
The piece deals with hidden laws of fractal mathematics, complex algorithms and its reflection in human existence being part many processes in Nature. Using approach of intuitive dance, the performer moves within a geometric pattern created through movement, expanding and unfolding the fractal complexity through motion by altering the mathematical equation on the fly.
The performances that will take place during Kinetica Art Fair at Ambika P3 Marylebone (Westminster University) are part of annual competition commissioned by the Musion Academy (MAMAs). ‘Khaos’ project will be presented as first step of a project in collaboration between Eugenia Emets (artist), Mohammad Taha (3D animation / design), Eurico Moita (programmer), Patricia Afari (sound artist / programmer) to be further developed into a more complex setting. Later in the year Analema Group would aim to create a multi-layered performance, where the audience won’t see the changing variables of the equation, but will observe the infinite growth and depth of multi-world of dependent origination.
Special thanks to:
Humus – for letting us use the open source code
Anastasia Koro – for creating the costume (Anastasia Koro on FB)
Mattia Santachiara – for helping to develop initial keyboard controls for fractal manipulation
