When These Mountains Turn To Oceans AV

An audiovisual experience. Constantly shifting digital topography in which figurations of the cosmos, crowds of people, the flow and ebb of waves and the flap of a bird’s wing are folded into undulating mountain tops and deep, rippling ravens. Simultaneously evoking rapidly corroding VHS nostalgia while converting old signals into new, unexplored environments. Duman’s visuals render the passage of time as fluid and malleable. Old memories take on the elevation and depth of mountain ranges, while images of the largest and smallest scales – planets and dust particles, oceans and dancers – collapse into one another in a digital approximation of plate tectonics, a pocket dimension where mountains turn to oceans and back again within the blink of an eye. Sound by Chromasy.

Mahir Duman (TR)
Mahir Duman is a visual artist and VJ based in Berlin, presenting live performances, interactive installations, and projection mapping in various European countries, especially for concerts, music- and art festivals, clubs, and art galleries. He was born in Ordu, Turkey, and lived in Istanbul for many years. In 2011 he moved to Berlin and expanded his life and work as an artist. He produces videos, short films, music clips, and lots of other media sets, mixed and synchronised with sound and the rhythm of action. He describes his imagery as unrealistic and surreal, that question human perception and the interplay between subjects. Mahir defines music as the scenario of a visual show and aims to create a new perspective, a relationship between humanity and the universe, to reach the human subconscious and feelings by playing light, color, and images.
