Παλμός - Art Collection (2022)
Παλμός (palmós), 'pulse', a 'heartbeat' contextualise the heart as a metaphor for emotion, and the notion of vibration as a connecting element between physical, biological, and social activity.
Data collected from a single vibration, Παλμός α' / vibration, a beating heart, Παλμός β' / a heartbeat, and the amount of movement of the crowd around a social point of interest, Παλμοί / pulses, are used to navigate the parameters of bespoke software for artistic creation. The result is an audiovisual work that explores the universal experience of cardiac activity in response to thought, emotion, and movement.
Quickly Photographed and Released Unharmed is a collection of generative audiovisual artworks by Pandelis Diamantides. The collection is part of Diamantides' ongoing research into the non-representational use of screens.
The collection reflects on our visually overstimulated environment. Diamantides seeks to create a direct experience with light and sound, using the screen as a medium rather than a representational canvas. The screen becomes a light source, inducing after-images in the vision of the viewer through rapid successions of light and colour. The works in the collection affect the intake of newer information through overstimulation.
Go Back to Hiding in the Shadows 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.
