This project consists of several experimental collages colliding digital with analogue in live audio visual performance. In this performance space interacts with already made film footage and digital devices like Samsung GT-B2710 mobile phone with 2MP Camera Resolution, canon 500d and Macbook screen.There is no editing software used, all the effects is made naturally from the falling light on the re-filmed screens. The sound is re-recorded form devices and at the end remixed together with final footage.
Samsung has the main footage already filmed, then with the help of other camera, witch films the Samsung screen, it is transferred to Macbook. The footage from Macbook screen is filmed too, and transferred to other computer, where it is mixed together and showed on the projectors.
Everything is a copy of something else at some level or another. We are all made of DNA. So maybe it is just a question of nature. Are we just products of our environment? Is there any real truth or meaning anymore? Does anyone really care? We live in the world filled with information,a message saturated with references. We navigate this sea of information without even thinking about it. Each day we are bombarded with thousands of marketed products rehashed signs and refried signifiers. Even the things we invest with our personal feelings and memories ar packed and sold back to us before we have had a chance to recognize them. Doses this world imitates us or did we imitate it. Where is the edge of the mirror surface..

So in this project I started to experiment with computer screens, 35 mm photographic film and digital photo and video cameras. Why did I do that? Because of a basic human need- I have always wanted to be a part of process, have an effect on it. Once captured photography or the moment of everyday life appears on screen, but depending on screen quality or lightning in the room, you will never see the picture same as the original or the moment that you captured. And what happens if I film it, again and again, and again?
