After the Quake is a dreamlike composition of layered video streams, visual elements and audio, blending into each other to create a mysterious flow of visuals. The audio and video correspond to each other in an almost traditional “video clip” relationship, but this is not a video clip in its traditional form. Normally in video clips, the visual content accompanies the audio track, whereas here the visual and the audio substances interact with each other. The visual elements are from the virtual and from the real. They’re from the sub consciousness of a collective digital space. After the Quake is a labyrinth of colors, shapes, forms and memories. I am looking into my dreams and picking from there my building blocks of the composition. Just like Germen expressionism I am interested in the emotions that art can provoke. A glow of flickering pixels and electronic sounds bits are my tools of choice.
