Azael Ferrer. Wrapping Illusions

Azael una persona que no cesa de investigar y llevar las visuales a su terreno, las luces. Ahora mismo se encuentra en California llevando acabo sus proyectos y supongo que sus sueños. Nos escribe para hacernos partícipes de su último proyecto que explica paso a paso:

os dejamos con WRAPPING ILLUSIONS

Azael Ferrer developed an intimate abstract performance with the technical and artistic freedom to create a visual sensations based on light and shadows. He emphisizes the interplay between elements like music, video projections, LED lighting and movement elements. Instead of using a traditional stage/screen setup, Azael has designed a kinetic scene where the projection surface (textures on paper) acts in harmonic movement with LED lights, projection, and music.
