Maotik at DokuFest
DokuFest XVII will feature a digital installation from French digital artists, Mathieu Le Sourd – Maotik. The installation is made in collaboration with our partners CACTTUS and created by Le Sourd to reflect the main theme of the festival.
The work will run through the second half of the festival and will turn the surface of a Prizren central building into a dynamic generative video mapping exhibition, tracking people to generate real time content.
Maotik focuses his work on the creation of immersive multimedia environments and generative visuals. His work has recently been presented in various festivals around the world, such as Mutek Festival, Live Cinema in Rio, Signal Festival in Prague, the British Film Institute in London and ARS Electronica in Linz.
As lead of Moment Factory’s interactive team in 2011, Le Sourd produced several large-scale projects including a multimedia experience in the new terminal at Los Angeles International Airport as well as the visuals for Nine Inch Nails’ world tour.
Always in search of new challenges, Le Sourd designs his own visual tools; generating animations from algorithms and creating 3D worlds to transform perceptions of space. He collaborates with musicians, sound artists and scientists in order to continue his research into the relationship between art, science and technology.
