Stones are angels: Catábasis

AV performance

STWST48x8Ars Electronica Festival 2022

Catábasis is a descent to a mythical world, where information wanders freely, while bodies are being processed, sluiced, dried out, classified, extracted, and commodified.

Catábasis is an imaginary sonic/chthonic, tex/ctonic, vis/rtual journey to the bubbling center of the earth but also a submersion to the inner worlds of one’s own.

Concept, sound: Daphne Xanthopoulou
Live visuals: Diana Bohutska
Sculptures: Sheida Ramhormozi

Sonic Utopias

Interactive Sound Installation

Ars Electronica Festival 2021 

*Sonic Utopias* is a sonic fiction series of utopian narratives and tales of subversion from a (not so) distant earth.

L' Estrella 

Interactive Performance

Golfo Mag Launch Party, La Cera 13, Barcelona, 2020

As the flow of the liquid is initiated, the electrical circuit between two vessels of water equipped with a capitative sensor is closed and words are randomly triggered from an audio corpus of prerecorded samples. The performance is over when all the words are uttered.
