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.
