ARIADNE is an a/v experimental sacred music duo based in Brooklyn, New York comprised of Christine Lanx and Benjamin Forest. With a focus on interspersing the ritualism of ancient spirituality and the secular iconography of the postmodern, ARIADNE flawlessly bridge the two worlds through their intricate musical compositions, striking digital visuals, and captivating live performances.
Observance_003: is an audio/visual performance that draws from themes of ecstatic visions, the eternal feminine and dream symbolism depicted in a digital landscape of infinite environments and harsh textures. The performance system developed by ARIADNE for Observance_003 explores the improvisatory interplay of music and visuals mediated by machine learning, physics simulation and motion analysis techniques.
Past/future performances: MIT List Visual Arts Center, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Made in NY Media Center by IFP, Elastic Arts (Chicago), Harvestworks (NY), University of Idaho, University of Denver, Reverse Gallery (NY), Trans-Pecos (NY), Bunker Projects (PA), DFBRL8R Performance Art Gallery (Chicago), and Gallery 788 (Baltimore).
