Ioannis Kanelis - Variations

We live in the thrall of technology and our lives seem to be “technologically textured for most of our waking moments” (Ihde, 1983, p.3).

Variations performance (approx. 10-15min duration) is a real time audiovisual dialogue between the machine and the human being. There is a process behind this dialogue between personal memories and emotions and how they are connected to each other. This concept is translated into the performance regarding the rhythm of the visual context, some are generative to connect with the frequencies of the sound design and negotiate the boundary of randomness. Variations also explores the impact of technology on human action.

Ioannis Kanelis’ work is exploring the areas between human experience and technology. Thus his work within the spectrum of design possibilities facilitated by sound production and a critical approach to technologies.
