The album is a compilation of the immersive audiovisual projects Memorsion, Dispergere Maiz and the experimental project Popcore Duo.
Memorsion is an audiovisual installation made of 24 video screens. The project is about abandonned urban spaces and their cultural memories. Video footage of fragments — concrete expanses, tunnels, graffiti-covered walls, human bodies — are used to reconfigure familiar urban settings and sculpt a novel space. Memorsion is a meditation on urban architecture and cultural memory—traces left on forgotten, abandoned and obsolete structures.
A video of the project is at vimeo.com/13530731
