HISTORY OF MAPMAKING
Audiovisual Performance
2008

 

 

 

The visual concept for  History of Mapmaking is inspired by the infamous 80s science fiction series  “Sapphire and Steel”. In one of the episodes a light spot kept moving up the stairs, with a voice repeating hypnotically "upstairs, upstairs". It left such a strong impact on the artist Mia Makela, that she reproduced it for this performance. The starting point for the visual material is one tiny dot, which keeps multiplying and moving until it starts resembling an infinite universe, rotating around the musician Rebekah Wilson. Thus the microscopic becomes macroscopic.  The visuals are projected on her body and cello, which gives an illusion of surround projection.

The performance is an example of Makelas interest in minimalism, she uses the most simple forms of visual presentation and makes one dot the main protagonist of the narrative.
