FIELD: Energy Flow
Posted on December 11, 2012 by contact
FIELD and The Creators Project launch Energy Flow, a non-linear film experience that explores the physical, social and spiritual tensions in our world. Translating real-life events and processes into digital paintings in motion, the Energy Flow App weaves multiple story lines into an immersive, audio-visual experience that is unique every time it is played.
Energy Flow launches on iOS and Android week commencing 10th December 2012.
From the Arab Spring to the London Riots, from the financial crisis to the groundbreaking research at CERN institute, our world has never before been shaken up by such a multiplicity of fundamental shifts. With Energy Flow, FIELD presents a close-up study of 10 animated stories inspired by these shifts. Energy Flow observes the instinct-driven movements of wild animals; a memory of anarchy and chaos on our streets; games of chance symbolising the mathematical chaos that holds our universe together; and much more. The lush and powerful animations pay tribute to contemporary painting as well as the new aesthetic of today’s science and technology.
The bespoke algorithmic system of Energy Flow interlinks the stories into countless unique film experiences. From a quick dream rush to a meditative impression, each iteration of Energy Flow presents a different abstract narrative full of crosslinks and connotations; reflecting that there is never just one perspective on our complex world.
FIELD collaborated with German sound artist David Kamp to drive the sound and music composition from the same system, creating a one-off soundtrack blending experimental electronica with classical instruments for each iteration of Energy Flow.
“Energy Flow reflects the complexity of how things are connected in our lives today – the fragile equilibrium, the dependencies between economic, political, geographical and cultural factors.” Vera-Maria Glahn, FIELD
“Energy Flow is like KOYAANISQATSI through robot eyes.” Marcus Wendt, FIELD
