MUTEK MX Recommends brings the latest news and activities from the artistic community that makes MUTEK MX’s festival one of the most exciting experiences of the year.
This is the road to MUTEK MX Edition 16 from August 27th to September 1st:
> Pedro Maia: Negative Space, work in progress
The iconic Berlin Atonal festival presents Negative Space by Pedro Maia as a preview of his new performance in an installation format. In this piece, presented as a work in progress, Pedro projects 16mm films on three synchronized cubic objects filled with smoke, in a search “to deconstruct the negative space and give the viewer complete freedom to gaze into the film manipulations. The viewer is submerged into the image, becoming the subject of that image and of the composition”. To transform Negative Space into an installation, Pedro Maia collaborated with designer Marcel Weber aka MFO, who has also collaborated with Aïsha Devi in the scenographic design of some of her live A/V performances. This November, Pedro Maia will complement Vessel’s performance with live cinema.

Nueve Vidas & Rimiyoho premiered Organismos Oníricos in North America as part of the Motion 1 program, sharing the stage with Sinjin Hawke & Zora Jones and Gaika, among other international guests:
