Recombinant Media Labs along with ray Area, STRRR TV and Minds over Matter. are thrilled to announce NEOMYTHOS, a neural-sensatory showcase of new media works by artists from China and Japan who are transforming existing narratives into new mythologies through depictionary video and sound. 

For six days only, experience Lu Yang’s frenetic expansive motion-capture VR performance, as saturated with manga and anime influences as it is with religion, neurology, and the human body. Wang Meng’s computer generated landscapes conjure traditional Chinese 国画 (guóhuà) paintings, and Shigetoshi Furutani’s collages use found internet imagery to create new mediascapes. Together, these works imagine the possibility of human existence beyond current constructs of gender, environment, and aesthetics.

Lu Yang's behind-the-scenes process for producing motion-captured imagery.

Don’t miss these works presented in two large-scale cinema environments, and the premiere of new works for the historic RML CineChamber, a 360° panoramic spatial sound cinema environment, originally conceived in the 90’s in San Francisco’s Recombinant Media Labs.

Presented by Recombinant Media Labs and co-produced by Gray AreaSTRRR TV and Minds over Matter
