Alexandra Gavrilova and Sergey Titov are Moscow artists, working together as Stain. They are focused on abstract forms and concepts to find concentration in today's poly-dimensional information flow, seeing creative process as a way to render one's idea of the world and oneself, to learn more about principles of nature and human perception. Stain works with generative methods to create graphics, audiovisual and light installations.
"Abstract objects on the projection are moving slowly according to the solid dynamics, an active environment is filled with bits of recursive reactions. This algorithmically conditioned but probabilistically unstable graphical canvas depicts a metaphor of causation and reflection on the events in the life of communities. All the scene is filming with low frame rate. The real situation in the space of the exhibition turns to a documentary, in another time, it immerses the observer in eternity and transience of the view from afar on the events happened a minute ago."
"The interrelations of the elements of sets, the patterns of their combinations, and the constancy of recurring circumstances constitute the stabilities of our existence."
"Everyone can influence the image with tilting a smartphone connected to the local network.
Sound by Lazyfish is also realtime synthesized and forms a whole with the graphics.
Audience's interaction with the installation floats between game, creation or contemplation, depending on participnts' mood and actions. Visually complex image is a metaphor of virtual structures, which one can affect intuitively easy. Participant's mind is immersed in the process of influence and perception of emotional feedback. Graphic style hints at futurist aesthetics and has a certain irony along with intention to rethink our attitudes to technology."
