Tonite is the premiere of my new video art piece called Tetrapodomorph deconstructor. For this and many new pieces in the future I worked together with the performance artist and dancer Edith Buttingsrud Pedersen.
Tetrapodomorph Deconstructor is a video art piece built around a narrative structure.The progressive evolution of an alienated humanoid leads to the perversion and deconstruction of the human body. It eventually morphs into an evolved being, to finally end up at its starting point. The piece cycle represents the uselessness and ephemeral lifespan of evolution gone wrong.
The premiere tonite is at Berghain within the Turn Around Bright Eyes group art show.
DNA BLN – Discover New Artists is a Berlin based showcase festival for bands and artists. The first edition hosted a great variety of bands such as Losers, Those Goddamn Hippies, We love machines, Backstab Burial, Glitter Wasteland and Janice Prix.
The second edition taking place March 26th, 2015 in the fabulous Magnet/Comet twin club is a must go! I am twice happy to announce that I will again do the visual installations as dev01ded and we play with our band AUTIST!
We’re happy to announce that the new AUTIST teaser is online, promoting the upcoming music videos and song releases. Keep your eyes and ears open for upcoming shows as well, starting in March in Berlin.
Autist is a 4 piece live electronic band from Berlin that borders on a mix of psych, grunge, dance and punk.
Formed in 2014, it consists of former members of the electro-punk band Aniaetleprogrammeur and drummer Christopher Chartrand (Crystal Castles).
Autist is gloriously noisy, imaginative and fun, disturbing and danceable in equal measure. Its shards of thumping beats and razor guitar provokes exodus, manic and brutal dancing.

Since some months I’m preparing myself to get back to work more with dancers again, starting with some experiments. My personal goal is to achieve a homogenic language for narrative filmmaking, incorporating dance as a tool to express certain scenes, not overdosed and obviously as dance but as a choreographic element for camera, actor and environment. I want to break the audience expectation, presenting dialogs and interactions suddenly with non-verbal communication, surrealistic, weird and beautiful.
Thanks to Edith Buttingsrud Pedersen for this experiment, for more to come.
