As part of the Tech Open Air festival taking place in Berlin July 17, 2014, SomoS Art house opens its doors to technology enthusiasts and art lovers alike with a media art salon evening showcasing the work of Telematique + U-matic.
The Berlin-based duo will present a generative video installation titled ‘Tornado#3’ in the salon area at SomoS art house. The audio-visual Installation allows the audience to experience an abstracted simulation of a whirlwind. Image and sound are created in real time with software especially developed for the project.
Telematique /Sven Gareis

The work of Telematique has created a name for itself in its experimental approach. His aim has been to generate pictural landscapes which closely relate to the architecture and live music contexts in which they are presented. To this end, his artistic practice is continually developed. The result is a multitude of dense and surprising visual worlds, evolving in a precise synergy with the given music.
