Immanentia at EMAF

On the 27th of April, Palm Top Theatre exhibition travelled to the new location of EMAF festival. Together with other two artworks, 'Immanentia', was selected to be part of European Media Art Festival in Osnabrueck, Germany. The EMAF is one of the most important forums of international Media Art, and is an open laboratory for creative and artistic experiments that help shape media and the aesthetics of their content.

Immanentia – a palm top theatre piece The dream life has always been there. Mere shapes ever so clear and distinct. It is as if her little mind invented these shapes, labyrinths of the mind and for the mind - to drift away and try to lose oneself in - even though the mind cannot entirely trick itself. She always finds her way back. Abandonment. Mirroring. Pealing the thin layers of an onion, which in turn ends up as the perfect metaphor for the cluster of will, attention and dreams that we call consciousness. Sliding and hopping between different layers, she will perform together with you; a choreography, a game with no end and a music piece assembled into a sublime instrument to be played out by the sensitive user.

The Patabotany drawings of phantasmagoric trees and plants which intertangle and interdepend on each other, becomes a daydream world for a little girl who was found at the doorstep of a children's house in Rose Cottage Home in Dickleburgh around 1890. She carried all of her worldly possessions with her – clutching only 'a chestnut and a penny'. Picture courtesy of The Children's Society, UK. The artworks was created for a special interface called i3DG, that turns 2D into 3D on iPhones, iPods and iPads - in the palm of your hand. Concept and production by Performing Pictures and FoAM
