In the audiovisual installation wasterrain a broken flat screen monitor serves u-matic + telematique as the resource from which faulty, mostly unwanted images and sounds are “mined” and extracted. Engaging with the invisible and the hyper-abundancy of uncontrolled data, the installation transforms the extracted images into fresh pixel building blocks from which a virtual 3D landscape emerges. This new, artificial terrain is being explored in an audiovisual live performance in real-time. With the use of such cutting-edge interactive techniques as modified game engines, the artists create a visual instrument that enables viewers to immerse themselves in a direct acoustic and visual experience of transforming and transformative landscapes.

Immersive Art Workshop with u-matic & telematique
In the workshop, the participants will be able to freely explore the installation in virtual space using VR glasses. This offers participants the opportunity to take their own perspective and to redesign the terrain interactively.
