Revelations in the Illuminated Forest
In the final performance event inside the Illuminated Forest, a multimedia interactive exhibit and reactive performance space, the environment will thunder in biblical proportions for one last time. Revelations unveils all the mysteries and myths of our world. French composer Géraud Bec conjures a hallucinated audio-visual world with "Totem" from the deepest depths of hell to the earth and to the sky and land of gods. The shamanic totem creates a channel to communicate with the different worlds, seeing the invisible, hearing the inaudible, from microcosmic to macrocosmic, hearing plants growing and stars moving.
Extraordinary Forest performs "The Life and Times of Structures and Buildings," exploring the phenomenology of sound, of dwellings, and beyond. Extraordinary Forest explores the myths and theories behind structures and architecture relating to the ideas of utopia, dystopia, and heterotopia using themes of green building, Utopian villages, installation art, experimental architecture, and the ever constant search for a comforting home with sound, music, visuals and sculpture.
Japanese artist Takahiro Kawaguchi collaborates with San Francisco artist [ruidobello] for the premiere of "Underwater Mechanics" creating a fantastic post-industrial underwater world, featuring Takahiro on his invented mechanical instruments including small motors, altered timer clocks, fans, tuning forks and [ruidobello] on laptop with altered recordings from the underwater depths of California rivers.
