Taking place 24 - 28 April 2019
Programmes starting at 6:30 and 8pm daily
Janus Fouché is a digital artist who works with a vast array of multimedia projects, ranging from interactive electronic musical installations and animation, to self-organising biological systems laser-engraved onto paper.
Fouché is currently interested in the freedoms and limitations that come with 360 video technology – the possibilities that open up for the construction and composition of images, but also the discomfort viewers can experience, the distortion of the lens, and the imperfect resolution of the video. Through embracing both the constraints and the opportunities presented through the technology, Fouché aims to explore the ideas of abstract and parallel universes that emerge when one inserts themselves into a virtual reality, as well as the act of falling in and out of time.
For Season 5 of The Centre for the Less Good Idea, Fouché will be collaborating with performer and theatre-maker Nhlanhla Mahlangu on a 360 VR film which sees the viewer inserting themselves into the mind of Mahlangu himself, and by virtue of being there, demanding a performance.
