A perfect description of the “automatic cultural man” —man as confined by culture, a slave to it, who imagines that he has an identity if he pays his insurance premium, that he has control of his life if he guns his sports car or works his electric toothbrush […] Man is protected by the secure and limited alternatives his society offers him, and if he does not look up from his path he can live out his life with a certain dull security.”

Ernest Becker, The Denial of Death

An introspection on the social, cultural and behavioral automations that modern man develops, the security they offer, but also of which we become captives. At the same time the presentation plays with the idea of simulating and falsifying human identity in the audiovisual environment. The image makes use of visual information generated through GANs (generative adversarial networks) while the sound landscape incorporates sound colors made by human voices.

Kosnost

A project that has its roots in a long-time friendship and collaboration between musicians George Fotiadis and Iraklis Dimitriadis and photographer Ilias Georgiadis. After years of individual exploration, discussions on mutual inspiration and aesthetics, hands-on experimentation and creative experiences, they adopted the kosnost moniker. In their appearances, they will showcase the product of these experimentations as a live audiovisual outfit. The projections borrow archival footage which are then processed and distorted in real time, while the musical part of the equation derives from explorations inside the realm of electronica.
