The collective of Marcel Weber and Lucy Benson, MFO, creates and directs 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 media forms, technology and illusionary devices are employed equally. MFO aims at the subconscious over the conscious, emotion over intellect, ambiguity over well-defined.
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 collaborations include audiovisual performances with the likes of Kode 9, Roly Porter and Oni Ayhun. Additionally MFO contributes video design to high culture productions, having worked with the Opera national de Paris, the Akademie der Künste Berlin, 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.
