Photon Project

Photon Project presents Photon 1.0

Collective Arts Exhibition

The Photon project revolves around the theme of visual arts and its continuous expansion as an increasingly recognized multifaceted discipline. Photon 1.0 will showcase some of London’s best projection and performance based visual artists, expanding public awareness to the infinite number of possibilities that this medium has to offer.

The selection of our artists has been made in order to give a varied view of contemporary products and techniques available in multimedia performance.

Photon 1.0 will be launched in the creative hub of East London’s Shoreditch, an area synonymous with those interested in the arts and related disciplines. Consistently showcasing unique events and unusual spaces, Hackney welcomes everyone to breathe in its bohemian atmosphere.

Good Djs are a key element for the positive outcome of a party. Vjs represent the add on to the whole musical experience. They work around our customers, we research and develop around the commissioner’s various requests whilst we suggest new ways of communication.

Visuals that aren’t merely projections of sequential videos but are instead a synergistic mix of a perceptible show. We have expanded our comfort zone from the 2D representation into the 3D mapping concept. Videos that take stage on physical objects such as blinds, cubes and spheres working as a support to the 2D performance. Transforming the artificial object into an animated one that communicates with the music and its whole audience.

The arrival of man on the moon is the point of departure for Gennao. Through the medium of live cinema, Gennao plays with the division between the individual and the collective. The manipulated scenes drive the main character from society to the loneliness of his thoughts. The collective memory of the audience completes the piece, serving as a reference to give the journey form. The barrier between the audience and the screen simulates the barrier between society and the individual, playing with the duality of absence-presence.



live Projection Mapping / visual artist / performance

Simulacrum is a collaboration project between artists Nestor Rubio and Maria Almena, both part of the London-based creative studio KIMATICA. The overlapping of two different realities (the physical and the virtual), creates a new augmented reality that gives new meaning to the perceived scene. The performer’s movements, surreal costumes, sound and light work together to induce a hypnotic and fantasy experience, playing with visual perception to take the viewer on an intensely powerful trip through colour, light, darkness and transformation. A depth camera (kinect) reads the scene, gathering data about the position of every point in space. The virtual representation of the scene is then sent to a program that generates the images that are projected back into the physical scene.
