Go Back to Hiding in the Shadows
an audiovisual work by Pandelis Diamantides
A digital granary of processed instrumental and electronic sounds, field recordings, rock formations, plants, animals and swarms unfolds a narrative of becoming.
The prime material of the work consists of deconstructed human voices, physical instruments and field recordings dissolved in an imagery of photographs, videos and processed visual material collected around the Troodos mountain range on the island of Cyprus.

Technique and Material
Go Back to Hiding in the Shadows questions the relationship between the digital and the organic. During the creative process I have created custom software to process algorithmically the source material generatively creating configurations of visuals and sound. Read more about the process and inspiration behind Go Back to Hiding in the Shadows work - the balance of thought, intuition, and human-algorithm interaction.
