Monoliths

Overview

Once again, Nomada contacted Tigrelab for the Opening Ceremony of 8th Sharjah Light Festival. We came up with Monolith, an audiovisual show that lasts about 18 minutes and that is composed of three parts: Creation, Evolution, Future.

Creation:
This part shows all the elements of creation and birth. Light, stars, planets, earth, water, cells, amniotic fluid… All represented by a nonlinear narrative or disrupted narrative, normally used in literature and cinema. The events of this part, hence, do not adopt a chronological representation; they do not follow any traditional temporal structure.

Evolution:
Second part deals with the depletion of natural resources, digitization or massive dematerialization of our environment, and our interaction between virtual an real world. As consequence of new technologies, through our avatars, we can be in many places at the same time, eventually never in one wholly. Evolution transmits fascination, excitement, but also fear and vertigo we have of horizon 2020.

Future:
Last part places us in a minimal and balanced future, where there is a harmonic treatment of the continuous flow of the data we perceive.
Shapes, fonts, sounds and movements are strictly synchronized, connecting into a futurist, fluid and controlled landscape, both in its positive and negative aspects. The installation sets a dialogue with space through the use of the 12 Sky tracers.
