«Get Going!» Portrait Series 2021
The designer, sound artist and composer Daniel Zea works with performance, movement recording systems, electronic tinkering, augmented reality, video and computer-generated images. His most recent works focus on the fragility of the human being in the face of technology. Thus they offer a mirror between the virtual and the real, with the human being always at the centre. Sometimes this reflection leads to a social or political poetics. His project aims to further explore this fragility, using his own 3D avatar to create a kind of autobiographical black video comedy. He is co-director of the Geneva-based Ensemble Vortex and teaches interactivity at HEAD.
«Get Going!» has existed as a FONDATION SUISA funding offer since 2018. With this new form of a grant, creative and artistic processes that do not fall within established categories are given a financial jump-start.
