Soundwave ((5)): The Meta Bionic
Featuring multimedia performances by M + V (Costa Rica), Guillermo Galindo, and NASSA (Chicago/SF)
The Meta Bionic experiments with multi-media performances of evolved organisms, surreal visions and regenerated artifacts. Costa Rican artistic duo M+V (aka Tavis Johns & Paulina Velázquez) manifests a new iteration of their long-term project 'Raro' which explores cellular activities and evolutionary mutations that combine sound, sculpture, and live animation performance, with concepts of "normal" vs. "abomination," and "organic" vs. "synthetic." Artist Galindo bring his 'Instruments of Connection,' instruments created from personal objects left behind from the US/Mexican border threading stories of the loss and search for new life with these new cyber-totemic objects. Artistic duo NASSA (aka Nadav Assor (Chicago) & Surabhi Saraf (SF) brings their audio-sculptural performance 'Tunneling' which examines the breaking through of walls/barriers that reveal layers both common and surrealistic via surgical con(dis)truction to discover an almost X-ray vision of one's world/mind. The Meta Bionic ventures into a world beyond Bionic with imaginations of bionic utopia/dystopia.
