Alienscapes+ (2019)_”Hairscape” 2019
The artwork "Hairscape" is performed live. In this video, i play live electronic sounds and live visuals, at the same time. The live visuals depict my tiny details of my skin and hair. These details perceived as weird & surreal landscapes. The used interactive filters are searching for analyzing the edges and the structure of these "landscapes". The "Hairscapes" project uses new media art and various devices for achieving its goals. In this video, the movement of the microscope camera follows up my live sound play. Basically here, I am looking for an imagery could be made by scratch. My attempt was to make a music visualisation video, based on live footage that was streamed by multimedia devices, such as a microscope camera (100x optical zoom, 300 digital zoom), webcams and synthesizers.
