ARTIST

Stratofyzika Performance Group

Germany

StratoFyzika is a collective creating movement-based interactive audiovisual performances. We are three artists of various backgrounds; each representing one "stratum" of our complex perception: audio, visual and movement layer. We use the laws of physics (Fyzika) as a metaphorical way of explaining material states from the realms of imagination, emotions and spirit. The wide range of specialization of each artist creates a unique constellation going across genres, stretching borders, revealing the connections and relationships in between our mediums. We continue in the tradition of Gesamtkunstwerk. But we do not propose one single linear direction, a creation sourcing from one individual. We collaborate in multiplicity, we suggest the possibilities, we open each other in a state of higher dimension of communication. We feel and interpret.

Atavistic Matter

201400:10:10Video Art
Atavism as a meditative state on the ancestral inhabitants in matter; water, stone, earth, ether, and fire. We are constantly pouring into and out of one another like a tide washing over the sea when our feet touch the earth, we lay down and pull up roots from the rising and falling of our feet. stars fall from our eyes we shake like jugs of water. When we sip a kiss or hug we are nothing more than shape-shifters forming and deforming from the elements which are constantly circling, making, remaking, undoing, falling apart. . . we do this also with our minds because we are also water, stone, earth, ether, fire; of nature herself.

THAETA

201700:20:00Performance Art
THAETA is the third performance of StratoFyzika’s Shadows Trilogy. With new collaborations in sound and interactivity (sensors building, coding), the concept still steeped in the subconscious realms and dealing with the ego: the dark and light shadow aspects of self (as in the first two parts of the trilogy) but also on the edge of the conscious, waking self; visions on the edge of sleep, whispy light shadows, multi-dimensional geometric objects, sudden sound as if from the halls of a mind in a dream state. This liminal zone is a state referred to as Hypnogogia. THÆTA embodies this borderland state. All merge onto the stage, interactively; body dynamics, auditory sensations and visuals function as the culmination of parts into one constellation in live performance. THÆTA is the result of an on-going research about movement based a/v environments for performance. Has been funded so far through a crowd funding and said research will be shared as open-source.
