Aire - Art All Night, Washington DC - September 26, 2015
"Aire – Visual Concert for Nomads” is a cinematic, musical and poetic piece created and directed by Javier Moreno (composition, double bass) Laia Cabrera (filmmaker and video artist) in collaboration with Isabelle Duverger (animation and projection mapping) that travels through time and space, for those seeking permanently, never having the feeling of forever.
The piece is designed as a site-specific visual concert, conceived from an original musical suite and developed as collaboration into an allegory of images and immersive video mapped projection design on an architectural space. Exploring the nomadic nature of our lives in a geographical and emotional level, we invite the viewer on an adventure through the senses, where love and traveling are intertwined in an inseparable way, telling the story of the ephemeral and the eternal.
This project, forged in New York, searches new forms of expression within the creative frame of contemporary art. The creation of suggestive atmospheres sustains a collective pulse accentuated by the international diversity of its artists.
