live painting and projector performance. Collaboration with Julian Vogel

QWERTYUIOP is an expanded cinema performance that includes live video projections, painting and sound. The performance marks the first collaboration between the artist-siblings Jenny and Julian Vogel. Whether it’s the dots and dashes of the telegraph or the pixelated bitmaps of Skype, our conversations are transmitted increasingly through electronic media. What happens during this transmission? What type of effect does this experience have on our bodies? What is lost (or added?) in the conversation as language is transcoded into ones and zeros? Images are created live, projected and traced in a process that can be interpreted as a race between the machine- and hand-made. But after a while the competition turns into a conversation, at times poignant, at times full of beautiful misunderstandings.
