A stereoscopic Realtime Performance based on Kafka´s "The Trial"
by 1n0ut (Robert Praxmarer, Reinhold Bidner)
Winner of the Media Art Award Salzburg
In Franz Kafka’s THE TRIAL, 1n0ut found a world full of loops, repeats, instructions and protocols which are familiar parts of every computer programme. This classic text becomes the springboard for a stereoscopic real-time dance theatre piece. The images of the performers are gathered digitally, manipulated and remixed live to plunge an audience each wearing 3D cinema glasses headlong into a thrilling and disturbing illusory world. What steers mankind, what goes, what is lie, what is the logic of the absurd and what the illogicality of reality?
A remarkable adventure, which discovers new forms of expression to question the nature of reality and personal identity.
1n0ut (Robert Praxmarer, Reinhold Bidner)
The visual images are created by three Overhead Projectors with some kind of liquids, in during a performance. In this collaboration, also sampling Japanese old textile patterns, it called "SAME-KOMON" and "KANOKO".

Embrace (2012) is a 2D motion graphics work that combines live action video of a dance performance with graphic effects to demonstrate an artist’s journey towards creative ecstasy. By using a visually rich multi-planar space in tandem with three distinct color palettes, Pearsall reveals the difficult and time-consuming creative struggles that are a necessary component of the artistic process.
