Rainer Kohlberger: Brainbows – Live A/V

Location Regent Street Cinema, Director Rainer Kohlberger, Country Austria, Date Event has passed

Rainer Kohlberger uses digital-projection technology in a radical way. Through impulses and waves of pure light, the intentional overload of the human perception apparatus leads to visual impressions that appear exclusively in the literal »eye of the beholder«. Layers of noise, drones and stroboscopic lights unfold a sense of the infinite as well as the very now. Image surface and image space meld into one (consciousness-)state, in which categories such as being and non-being, material and immaterial appear obsolete. In this event, Kohlberger will present a unique live A/V performance, preceded by a screening of his most recent film.

Experiments in perception are being conducted in a wonderland of damaged images.
