‘Of Men, Champagne and Victory Aside’ consists of an audio-visual presentation, merging laptop-generated visuals and live music. It is a playful examination into the theme of the ‘victory sign’ in the Arab world, from the 1980’s to the present. After examining archive material, endless possibilities of animating, overlaying and deconstructing of audio-visual clips are generated into a new moving image, liberated from the ‘flow’ of the media.
The outcome is a live audio-visual presentation based on a creation of remixed visuals and audio soundtracks.
