After his first stage of the artist residence, the pandemic outbreak forced the audiovisual artist to delay his return to Iran and continue to develop research and projects in Barcelona.
The talk revolves around the concepts of reflections and mirrors in the Iranian literature, and how the RTT (render to texture) technique in 3D game engines could translate these concepts in experiences.

ONLINE, 28 – 29 May 2020
As we slide into the new normal or la nueva normalidad it is inevitable that the AV world will experience a considerable amount of visibility during the pandemic as technology plays an important part in everything that we do. A surge of online events, meetings and live streams now fill up our diaries like they are going out of fashion and meeting up with your mates down the pub for a pint after work is so 2019.
Enter the evolution of user generated entertainment platforms like Twitch, which now boasts 17.5 million average daily visitors. Resident Advisor has invented its own virtual island Streamland where all virtual events that have been successfully submitted to RA exist. And MelodyVR brings the artist even closer to the fan through some very high spec virtual reality streaming experiences. Did somebody say Zoom quiz?
The drive for innovation and exploration in the world of audiovisual art and culture is again on the rise, opening up in new forms. Which leads me onto the question about interdisciplinary artists and institutions who challenge the status quo and dare to oppose the mainstream. Where are they and what is their artistic response to the pandemic?
I give you BODY (UN)MUTE. A two-day online festival curated by Bogomir Doringer hosted by ICK Dans Amsterdam that looks into the rituals of dancing and masking in times of social distancing. The audiovisual event will deliver a programme of workshops, talks and performances from all corners of new media, dance and conceptual art. But how can these rituals take place in an online space?
“Technology has been around forever, but most people are not familiar with the basics of streaming. Porn channels and video gaming platforms are way ahead of time and up until now artists haven’t really engaged with it, which makes it harder to get a certain quality that produces something more than just a Zoom call. I have been following the ritual of masking since 9/11 with my project Faceless – Re-inventing Privacy Through Subversive Media Strategies. What is the role of this in contemporary times? BODY (UN)MUTE is a physical representation of Faceless and my art exhibition Dance Of Urgency, which explores how dance and ritual rise in times of personal and collective crises, and how it can empower individuals and groups. In amongst a global pandemic both these ideas live together and that is why I want to explore this space with new media artists”– Bogomir Doringer
Some highlights come in the form of Famous New Media Artist Jeremy Bailey who wants you to join his Augmented Reality Makeover Party where step-by-step you can learn how to perfect your own Augmented Reality (AR) digital mask and alter ego. Transgress and queer-up your identity, become a drag unicorn or whatever else you can imagine!
Rosa Menkman, an art theorist and visual artist specialising in glitch art and resolution theory, will screen her work Pique Nique pour les Inconnues :: The CHORUS VERSION (2019-2020). The video looks at various unknown women whose images are linked to the history of image processing. While these women seem to be able to prolong their existence for as long as the (digital) realms will copy and reuse them, most of them have lost their name and identity.
Live performance comes in the form of Keren Rosenberg and Nicola Cavalazzi, who will present an audiovisual art installation which explores our social obsession in self-exposure through the use of modern technology. Together they will question what it means to perform in front of a camera – where does the body finish and the screen start?
Dr. Kelina Gotman talks about how Choreomania, the manic crave for dance, is not just a bi-product of lockdown. Choreographer Emio Greco will elaborate on the Pizzica, a dance from his native ground in Puglia that was danced to heal yourself from the bite of a poisonous spider. And Shanghai Radio will close the two day event giving us an insight into how creativity, music and online streaming kept the Chinese creative community connected during the lockdown.
In a reaction to the pandemic tickets for the event are based on the principles of donation, which provides the public freedom to support the hard work and dedication from all the artists involved.

Jena, May 13 – 16 2020 – EDITION IN STREAMING
The FullDome Festival is the oldest and only fulldome festival with an unbroken continuity. With about 800 contributions from 30 nations and more than 500 visitors per year, the audiovisual event is most probably the biggest international festival of its kind.
Visitors do not only see and evaluate a great variety of international fulldome films, they meet professional, student and independent producers and take part in paper sessions, workshops, diverse presentations and expert talks. Festival curators, an international jury and the festival directors evaluate the submitted works and select the most interesting and innovative productions for the festival from these submissions and determine the works for one of the festival’s awards.
A core mission of the FullDome Festival has always been to encourage students to stretch the envelope of what’s possible in the dome. It is amazing to see completely new approaches to the medium at each festival. Many are really creative, some even can compete with professional works. For most students, the FullDome Festival not only offers an introduction to the medium, it is often the only way to present, and is one of the few public venues.
Stuck inside? Here are seven online film festivals and challenges that filmmakers can complete from home. Try them out and maximize your creativity.
Alors que la pandémie a provoqué l’annulation ou l’incertitude pour de très nombreux festivals de cinéma prévu cet été, une initiative menée par le festival de Tribeca est annoncée. Le concept est simple : unifier de très nombreux festivals du monde entier autour d’un même évènement gratuit et en ligne, We Are One : A global film festival.
Cannes, Berlin, Venise, Annecy, Sundance, Toronto, Londres, San Sebastian, Marrakech, Locarno, New York, Mumbai, Macao, Jerusalem, Karlovy Vary, Sarajevo, Guadalajara, Sydney, Tokyo et Sarajevo se sont joints à l’initiative, qui se tiendra sur Youtube du 29 mai au 2 juin. En pratique, We Are One devrait proposer longs et courts-métrages, documentaires, tables rondes, musique, etc.
Si le festival est donc gratuit, son objectif sera toutefois de lever des fonds “au bénéfice de l’OMS et des organisations locales qui s’efforcent de soulager les personnes atteintes du Covid-19”, précise le Festival d’Annecy.
Le programme n’est pas encore officialisé, et il faut souligner que cette initiative devra évidemment se faire avec l’aval des distributeurs : les contrats de diffusion en festival ne permettent évidemment pas, tels quels, une diffusion gratuite et en ligne de leurs films.
Côté français, Eurozoom (notamment très actif dans la distribution d’animation japonaise et grâce à qui Your Name, Lou et L’Ile aux Sirènes, Les Enfants de la Mer, Liz et l’oiseau Bleu sont arrivés dans nos salles) a ainsi souligné sur Twitter que ce sont bien les distributeurs et non les festivals qui possèdent ces droits de diffusion. Eurozoom indique qu’une telle diffusion en ligne peut poser problème par rapport à d’autres contrats (chronologie des médias, droits TV/VOD déjà vendus, etc). Enfin, Eurozoom rappelle que la filière distribution est touchée de plein fouet par la crise actuelle, entre les salles de cinéma fermées et les télévisions qui se concentrent sur des valeurs sûres et éprouvées : les distributeurs de taille modeste ou moyenne se retrouvent donc sans recettes. Dans ces conditions, le concept de diffuser leurs films gratuitement risque de leur sembler saugrenu.
Reste donc à voir, en pratique, la programmation qui sera proposée par We Are One. Nous en saurons évidemment plus très rapidement.

DEADLINE: 24 APRIL 2020
EVENT: 01 – 03 MAY 2020
INTRO is an online event. During three days, we will get to know projects that have been developed in response to the situation that is currently ongoing. Three days of talks, concerts and an online exhibition to enjoy in a relaxed mood. The event is organized by Booleans and Matics.
The event is looking for artists, creators, and programmers who are developing creative proposals during the COVID-19 lock-down and who would like to share during INTRO’s Online Exhibition. The participation is free. Projects will be shared via link.
The deadline to submit your proposals is April 24 at 24h CEST to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following info: Full name, Bio, Summary of the project and link of the project.
Conscious of the cultural economic situation, they will use the PayPal platform so the assistants will be able to make donations online and it will be distributed among the artists and speakers of the event.
It is interesting to see different projects that will come out of the current quarantine situation. At audiovisualcity we are looking forward to see more events of this kind!
Si le contexte de la crise sanitaire n’a, comme nous vous l’avions indiqué, pas permis de maintenir le Festival d’Annecy et le MIFA sous leurs formats physiques, l’équipe organisatrice dévoile cependant une alternative en ligne : Annecy 2020 Online.
Au programme, donc, une bonne partie des contenus qui devaient être initialement proposés. Pas question, explique en résumé l’équipe du festival, de laisser passer une année sans qu’Annecy puisse jouer son rôle de fédération de l’industrie. Et ce, à plus forte raison dans la situation actuelle.
Si les détails de l’évènement ne sont pas encore connus (conférences, conditions d’accès), le festival annonce déjà de nombreux films :
– La compétition courts métrages :
37 films pour l’officielle, 12 pour la catégorie Off-Limits, 20 pour la section Perspectives et 10 dans la section Jeune public ;
– La compétition films de fin d’études :
44 films ;
– La compétition films de télévision et de commande :
21 films TV et 35 films de commande.
La sélection peut d’ores et déjà être consultée en ligne. Marcel Jean, délégué artistique du festival, la présente ainsi :
“Globalement, la sélection 2020 est plus légère, plus humoristique que celles des dernières années. On retrouve quand même plusieurs films abordant les thèmes d’actualité, en particulier l’écologie, la migration et l’identité de genre. Quelques films – Empty Places de Geoffroy de Crécy, Physique de la tristesse de Theodore Ushev et Something to Remember de Niki Lindroth Von Bahr – semblent même pressentir la situation présente.
Nous sommes particulièrement fiers de la qualité et de la variété de la sélection Off-Limits, qui témoigne de la vitalité des démarches expérimentales. Par ailleurs, six des 12 films composant cette section ont été réalisés par des femmes, ce qui est représentatif du niveau de parité qui caractérise désormais la sélection dans les diverses catégories de courts métrages. Nous sommes aussi très contents de la diversité de la provenance des films sélectionnés, alors qu’on retrouve des œuvres provenant d’Islande, de la République démocratique du Congo, de l’Égypte et de l’Indonésie, autant de pays rarement représentés à Annecy.
Du côté des films de fin d’études, signalons le haut niveau des productions issues de l’école de Lodz, en Pologne, alors que trois films provenant de cette maison d’enseignement ont été retenus. Quant à la sélection de programmes destinés à la télévision, elle indique que ce secteur traverse une grande époque avec quantité de productions audacieuses et ambitieuses, s’adressant à divers publics.”
Nous ne manquerons évidemment pas de vous donner plus de détails le moment venu. Comme chaque année, 3DVF couvrira bien entendu le festival.

The audiovisual culture is adapting to this worldwide situation with innovative ideas of how to show the artwork done to the public online.
We can see this reflected in the Clash Online Exposition, an alternative to the present festival that was supposed to take place the 10 & 11 of April. They offer the possibility to attend to the festival from your living room with an online expo and (live) stream program.
The link of the streaming : https://clashclashclash.nl/expo/
Here is the program:
16:00 | Edwin van der Heide
16:15 | Heleen Blanken
16:45 | PHOLE ( live from OOST)
17:15 | Matteo Myderwyk
17:45 | FUNC (Live from OOST)
18:15 | c/a
This program inlcudes the artists below and some others that will sort out an inspiring plan for this afternoon allowing us to enjoy of the different online experiences.
Edwin van der Heide describes himself as an artist, composer and researcher in the field of sound, space and interaction. He extends musical composition and musical language into spatial, interactive and interdisciplinary directions. His work comprises installations, performances and environments. The audience is placed in the middle of the work and challenged to actively explore, interact and relate themselves to the artwork.
Heleen Blanken is a visual artist living and working in Amsterdam. She works across the media cinematography, photography and installation art. Her art is deeply influenced by the complexity of the separation between humanity and the natural environment. She explores the different layers of our aesthetic perception of the natural world.
TobyLikesMilk was founded by Phoenix , a multimedia performer and writer, alongside the coreographer Katy Higgins to create artworks discussing topics like queer culture, identity and safe spaces. Their work is thought provoking and innovative, drawing on their own life experiences to catch the viewers focus in an unapologetically loud and provocative fashion.
Matteo Myderwyk is a classical pianist at the conservatory, Myderwyk then decided to throw away the rulebook of classical music altogether, ending up enthralled in the wonderful world of free-jazz. Making music without plan or pre-written composition gave a new creative impulse that pushed the musician’s craft to exciting new directions.
AudiovisualCity will live this experience, and we hope you join us!
From planning your storyboard to collaborative editing apps, here's a guide to navigating the challenges of managing a video editing project remotely.
As they say clearly, they are a street festival, but for solidarity, for responsibility and to win the fight against the pandemic, they stay at home. But to make the quarantine easier to go through, they present a challenge.
LLUERNIA AT HOME, Fire and light festival at home, takes place tonight 28th March at 20:00, and it’s the first edition. A strange way to start, and as they expected, it’s a challenge.
The people who participated had to post a one minute video of a domestic light installation with fire or light with the hashtag #lluerniaathome and all the materials had to be found at home, they couldn’t go out to search for anything. The open call closed yesterday, 27th March and today we will be able to watch in live on the web page www.lluernia.cat
The projects selected will remain in consideration till the 7th November, where Lluernia will be exhibited in the street.
Lluernia festival of fire and light, aims to become an annual event to visualize the relationship between the city of Olot and its surroundings, with the fire of volcanoes and how this origin has transformed, not only the orography and the landscape, if not the same character and culture of the people of La Garrotxa. As references, despite accepting the differences in format, they mention the “Fête des Lumieres” that is held annually in Lyon (France), the Light Festival that for the first time this year has joined the Party of Santa Eulàlia in Barcelona and the “Mapping Festival” of Geneve (Switzerland).
Stay safe tonight, lighting up your house while watching this charming festival online!
