Talysis – Paul Prudence
This weekend, 19th -21st October will see the arrival of the 4th edition of the Playgrounds festival of audiovisual arts in Tilburg, the Netherlands. The festival leans heavily towards the motion graphics and the experimental digital video end of the spectrum – featuring this year, well known outfits, such as Pleix and OnedotZero.
Pleix, a virtual community of digital artists based in Paris, have gained a considerable reputation for making music videos with a twist, not content with relying on slick production methods alone. If you’ve not see them before, I’d highly recommend viewing the videos, particularly Itsus for it hilarious portrayal of grotesque consumerism and cross related boardroom antics of consumption
This year’s festival has included a small expo of generative and code-based art and I’ll be contributing TalysisII to the show.
