When you face Liszt’s music, you will be repeatedly surprised by his experimental spirit, which allows him to break free from the forbearing frameworks or tonal tendencies, and to touch the delicate feelings his magical fingers owned up to, narrating the episodic “Piano Magician.” Among others being an expert on improvisation, he added ad-lib turns here and there to his composition, enjoying the tonal experiment.
Modernist Dream Cage
A Aural Eye Studio / Romania / 2020 / Monument video mapping / 16 min
Showing: National Theatre of Târgu-Mureș, Târgu-Mureș, Romania – 19th of September 2020 (Făt Frumos din Tărâmul de Azi)
The National Theater in Târgu-Mureș (1974) by C. Săvescu is one of the most iconic monuments of the Socialist-Modernist style in Romania. The conflict between the peaking infrastructural rise of the 70s and the terrible social constraints of the daily life is surpassed when a contained closed shape realises it can melt the limits of their own cage through dreaming.
The Other Side of the Light
Julia Shamsheieva / Ukraine / 2021 / Monument video mapping / 2 min
Showing: Saint-Clement Church, Metz, France – From 1st of July to 4th of September 2021 (Constellations de Metz)
There is a common opinion, that all the magic is in the dark. It stimulates imagination to complement barely visible outlines of objects arouse fantasy and creates an alternative world with its characters, while the light, revealing the visible reality, leaves no room for magic. But light is multifaceted, like all phenomena in the world. Projection mapping adds another dimension to the eternal play of light and dark, creating an illusion that has nothing to do with reality.

Spectra is an immersive light sculpture that explores how light shapes us, and how we shape light. Developed through conversations with leading scientists across the United Kingdom, it is an exploration of synchronicity, rhythm and disruption, taking audiences on a journey from sun-drenched Egypt, to the dark sky reserves of Kielder in Northern England.
Nele Fack / Belgium / 2021 / Monument video mapping / 4 min 20
Showing: Fluvius Site, Ghent, Belgium – From 10th to 14th of November 2021
Supraluminique is a cosmic ballet you can literally move through. It’s a performance by immortal dust particles and their endless dance through space. Enter the tunnel of time and travel 10 times faster than light. The audience can literally step through the work. It’s like going through the rabbit hole just like Alice in Wonderland and letting yourself be amazed. It is an installation to feel and experience.
__STROY studio / Czech Republic / 2021 / 360° immersive video mapping / 6 min

Le voyageur perdu
Morgane Philippe / France / 2020 / Monument video mapping / 5 min

A character alone, lost, in a landscape devoid of color. As he desperately explores his planet in search of companionship, he encounters a light. Attracted by this light, he follows it. They then discover a ship, and set off on an adventure. They cross various universes. As they pass, life seems to return, and little by little, the world is tinged with colors. Until an explosion of light took place. The character wakes up, the light is always by his side. They discover a lush landscape of a thousand colors, alive and bright.

Showing: Alte Oper, Frankfurt, Germany – From 12th to 15th of March 2020 (Luminale)
Digitisation has created an abstract world of data, media and algorithms. It is shaking up firmly established social structures similar to the Enlightenment in the 18th century as the rationalisation of nature from which Romanticism developed as a juxtaposition. BE\\LONGING aims to artistically examine how such a digital romanticism could look like today.
Meshsplash studio / Russia / 2020 / Monument video mapping / 3 min 15
Showing: Romodanovsky Sation, Nizhny Novgorod, Russia – 8th of October 2020 (INTERVALS Festival)
The show is based on a deep connection between audio and visual, which produces an effect similar to synesthesia. But there is some deliberate imbalance in this space. There are inaudible sounds in the visual part.
