AUGORG PROJECT OVERVIEW

 
 

FEATURE FILM

Directed & filmed by audiovisual designer Cy Gorman, starring  interdisciplinary artist Jazmyne Geis, the Augmented Organism feature film journeys through a stunning suite of evolving characters and landscapes.

Strongly emotive & augmented movements are performed by both the central character & the cinematographer to further integrate the inherent connection between the observer & the observed; a rich & immersive experience of identity and environment. 


Live Performance and Installation Art

Each of the AUGORG chapters were interpreted & amalgamated into a live installation & performance work, originally performed at The Arteles Creative Center in Finland.

Comprising of both indoor & outdoor modules, the live AUGORG performance installation includes dance/movement, audiovisual score, photography/video & text as well as physical landscape & set designs that can be recontextualized based on geographic location & surrounding natural & social conditions.


Research & Workshops

The production phase of AUGORG at Arteles Center was intensive & thorough, yielding:

  • The creation of a co-designed outdoor landscape installation
  • Innovative transmedia film-making processes
  • Live contemporary dance & audiovisual performance modules adapted from each chapter of the film

The co-design of AUGORG media, performance & interdisciplinary workshops integrate the following areas of research: 

  • Alternative methodologies for the creation of environmental landscape designs, for the purpose of ritual & healing
  • Audiovisual harmonic data sets informed by qualitative & quantitative observations of relationships between emotions & environmental conditions
  • Examining the potential for holistic relationships between environmentalism, technology & mythology 
  • Exploring identities as environments & environments as identities
