Fascinated by the concept of interplanetary life, Rotor’s AV performance follows the journey of humanity bidding farewell to earth to become an intergalactic species. Whilst the expanded cinema performance is conceptually based on space travel, the composition of the piece follows a very abstract line. Going from non-figurative visual patterns to images of planetary landscapes accompanied by synthetic layers of sound, the piece evolves into an immersive field of smoke, light and abstract phonic structures.
Rotor is an experimental audiovisual project by Joris Strijbos & Eelco Ottenhof. Terraforming-M is a Klankvorm commission made possible with the support of Creative Industries Fund NL and the City of Rotterdam.
