MFO work with imagery, light and Space. The partnership of visual artists Marcel Weber and Lucy Benson, MFO create and direct audiovisual performances, installations, video and image works. Intense and distinct aesthetics define their work. Concept takes priority over technique; the meaning defines the method. New and old technologies, media forms and illusionary devices are employed equally.
MFO are resident visual artists for multiple event series focused on the exploration of contemporary electronic music in Berlin and internationally. Performances and installations have featured at festivals such as CTM and Transmediale (Berlin), Unsound (Krakow), TodaysArt (Den Haag), as well as various events across Europe, USA and Australia.
Recent performances include audiovisual collaborations with the likes of Kode 9, Roly Porter, Oni Ayhun and Kuedo. Additionally MFO contributes video design to high culture productions, having worked with the Opera national de Paris, the Akademie der Künste Berlin, at Sophiensaele Berlin and the brut theatre in Vienna.
Larger projects are realised with an extended network of artists, MFO seeks constantly to collaborate, inform and evolve.
