FORMS: Fictions and Fragments will be centered around live visuals and experimental electronic sound.
Ran Slavin is a Tel Aviv based pioneering video artist, sound producer and electronic artist. His work is internationally shown, having presented work at Ars Electronica, Venice Biennale, Transmediale, film festivals and many more, released work on the labels Sub Rosa, Mille Plateaux, Cronica, Esot and more.
In his live work he synthesizes a visual-sonic process, transforming in real time, bursts of fragmentized video streams, texts and meanings into light and sound. Motion, duration and illumination come into play in an image – sound transformative structure breakdown. Accidental esthetics and the music of chance.

Lillevan is an animation, video and media artist. He is perhaps best known as founding member of the visual / music group Rechenzentrum (1997-2008). Parallel to his work in Rechenzentrum, he has performed and collaborated with many artists from a wide array of genres, from opera to installation, from minimal electronic experimentalism to dance and classical music.
Lillevan recontextualizes, combines and politicizes existing film images and fragments. ‘The aesthetics of the image are not to be found in its beauty, density and completeness, but in its transparencies and potentials.’ The images are a communicative medium interacting with the music.

Pierce Warnecke’s work stems from his interest in the effects of time on matter: modification, deterioration and disappearance. Whether focus is on the purity of digital forms or the chaotic grit of natural objects, large scales of time and space or microscopic detail, the goal of Pierce’s work is to readapt existing materials into a parallel context where their signified meanings, symbols and cultural connections have become residual ghosts.
Sound works explore combinations of pure synthetic sounds, electronic interferences, field recordings and manipulations of found objects. Textural, drone, noise, electronic and improvised music are areas of interest, explored through solo works and collaborations. Video is created in real-time, recorded, or generated and uses found items and moments: data sets, organic matter and microscopic textures to create dense patterns and contrasting forms.
