“Decomposition and Transcendence” is a multiple artist collaborative video art + sound show exploring the continuum of beauty, decay, transformation and rebirth.
As with any system, any given point justifies its opposite. There is no ideal without irony, and “Decomposition and Transcendence” exists between these two poles.
The stuff that balances this system: decay, age, transcendence, re-composition, rebirth and ripening are key terms behind “Decomposition and Transcendence.” Artists with a broad array of perspectives and experience—fashion, digital animation, pure and popular arts, noise, EDM, and classical music—explore this continuum and articulate new visual and sonic languages.
Natural and cosmic states are considered. But “Decomposition and Transcendence” emphasizes the human figure as a device to create analogous narratives and meanings.
