CYLAND MediaArtLab participated in the BAM Festival, October 20—22, 2016, in Liege, Belgium. “Breathless”, an interactive installation developed by Alexandra Dementieva and CYLAND, was on display along the works from Miguel Chevalier, Boris Edelstein, Ryoichi Kurokawa, and other artists. Watch the report from the opening, made by Alexandra, below:
Alexandra Dementieva’s main interests focus on social psychology and perception and their application in multimedia interactive installations. Her video work integrates different elements including behavioural psychology, developing narrative using a “subjective camera”. Her interactive installation projects attempt to widen the mind’s potential for perception using different production materials: computers, video projections, soundtracks, slides, photography, etc. By making certain historical, cultural and political allusions, her exhibition locations create the frame within which the idea develops. The projects explore the spectator’s depths of perceptual experience and the interaction of the individual spectator with the exhibition as well as with other visitors. The subject of an installation or its production method becomes less important to her than the mind of the user. Thus the latter becomes the center of the project or the main actor in the performance.
