onedotzero_adventures in motion festival returned to EMPAC [Experimental Media + Performing Arts Center] in Troy, New York state for the second invasion of installations, live performances, screening programmes and educational projects including a brand new commission by AntiVJ.
The weekend kicked off with stunning live performances. onedotzero invited international visual label AntiVJ to EMPAC to create a brand new live painting project during a three week residency which culminated in a live audiovisual show which opened the festival plus an installation presented over the festival weekend. AntiVJ are renowned for transforming architectural structures with 3D mapping and “live painting” with light projections and their response to EMPAC’s extraordinary architectural features was impressive. We were also joined by Diplo, the multi-talented DJ, Producer and Songwriter who, as well as DJ-ing with live visuals on opening night, presented his latest feature film Favela.
Back-to-back screenings of onedotzero’s latest compilation programmes took place in EMPAC’s 400 seat theatre over the entire weekend. Meanwhile installations included AntiVJ’s light painting, an interactive music video lounge and the onedotzero_adventures in motion latest festival identity [developed by Wieden + Kennedy London + Karsten Schmidt].
EMPAC also hosted the first stateside installment of onedotzero's education programme Cascade. Under the guidance of AntiVJ and onedotzero, Rensselaer students collaborated on projects that were presented to the festival audience.
