special effect

A cinematic performance staged as a live television show inspired by Andrei Tarkovsky’s 1979 sci-fi film Stalker.  Central to the performance is The Zone, the site of an unnamed cataclysm that is off-limits but pregnant with hope for deep within the Zone, it is rumored, there exists a room where wishes may be granted. The performance employed the use of live green screen compositing, live face tracking and digital facial substitution with binaural vocal performance. These live elements drove the projected narrative, framed by a laser-lit stage set and disrupted by interruptions commissioned from 20 experimental animators (including Amy Lockhart, Yoshi Sodeoka, Devin Flynn and Sabrina Ratte). Special Effect premiered at the Institute of Modern Art in Brisbane, AU and toured through 30 venues in 8 countries. It spawned a 12” vinyl record of its soundtrack and a limited edition digital download through Undervolt.
