MORPHIST

Audiovisual performance - chdh - 2015


Morphist is an audiovisual performance that studies the notions of form, metamorphosis and mutation. A mathematical abstract substance composed by a myriad of particles is disrupted by two performers who modify its organization. This matter is audiovisual: each alteration of its structure is transposed in sound and image, according to radical synaesthetic process.

Under the action of forces, thousands of particles organize themselves into complex shapes constantly traversed by unstable stirrings. Each particle has its proper life in a universe ruled by physical mechanisms like gravity, fluid mechanics or attraction. Each one is constantly subjected to contradictory influences creating an extremely complex macroform and overall behavior.

During the performance, the performers control the forces acting in this universe and generate different states of fragile balances crossed by unstable energies.
