Onionlab presents Evolució, a piece that revolves around the graphic and sound abstraction of the concept it is named after: evolution. It is construed as transformation, construction and alteration of reality through time; evolution as a discontinuous creation process as well.
Created with 3D projection mapping techniques, this time, Evolució was projected onto the façade of the Musées d'art et d'histoire de Genève, though the piece takes the evolution concept even further: It was conceived as an open transformation process so that it can also be adapted to different façades and projection surfaces, and so that Evolució can continue its transformation process.
Evolució is available for further projections, as it can be adapted to various physical formats, e.g. indoor structures, or different façades. If you are interested in exhibiting the piece or want more information about it, please do not hesitate to contact us (onionlab.com)

Reykjavík Visual Music · Punto y Raya Festival
The concept behind this visual music piece is the Birth of Earth.
The usaginingen team invented their own machines seeking to delight and suprise their audience, as people not only can enjoy the performance on the screens, but also feel the light explosions all around them, and witness the performers' movements on stage.
The Visual machine "TA-CO" has a camera, a kind of an animation table with four layers, water-basins, coloured ink, beads, mirrors, prisms, and lots more.
The Music machine "SHIBAKI" is some kind of a percussion kit, connected to a MIDI controller and to a string instrument.
The artist duo usaginingen is comprised of Shinichi Hirai (1977, Kagawa·Japan) and Emi Hirai (1980 Kanagawa·Japan), a married couple currently based in Germany.
They create graphic design, movies, music and live performances. During their performances, they play a self-made analogue visual machine and a music instrument. Both elements are prototypes, the only ones in the world.
They mainly perform at Museums, Galleries and Universities throughout Europe and Japan.
