Stormy China | Screening: Pop Apocalyptic – After DarkAnimation
- Fri 20.May @ 22:00 - 23:00
- Sun 22.May @ 21:00 - 22:00
The video-animation “Stormy China” refers mainly to a ritualistic element of connecting to the Internet that derives from a daily need to loathe reality. There are strong references to the social media and Second Life, the creation of avatars and how they succumb to the anthropological changes of the Internet era. The movies are based on poems that the artist wrote through the perspective of his internet persona called Cievil Momo. Through the imagery that derives from the poems “Made of Storm” and “Chinese Lamp” there is a need of redefining meanings under an illusionistic digital narration.
