Technology Art: Such A Thing

When I first heard that a “technology artist” had compiled an impressive set of visual candy to accompany the new Nosaj Thing video, I shook my head, deliberately figuratively. Give me a break, technology as a medium of art? Well, a few minutes into this video you get a clear picture of what that entails. With nothing more than a few light projectors, a stage to do their thing and some willing dancers, the aesthetic is more than impressive.

The artist is Daito Manabe and with support from The Creators Project, and collaborating with Perfume choreographer MIKIKO, he created a dynamic virtual environment to serve as the backdrop for two dancers whose movements across the stage are amplified by the graphics behind them, making each action feel larger and more emotive.
