Zorlu Performing Arts Center introduced art enthusiasts to a brand-new festival. Gathering different music genres under one roof at the heart of the city, the 2nd Mix Festival is held at Zorlu Performing Arts Center on December 15 and 16!

Spanning the entirety of Zorlu Performing Arts Center, the festival features concerts, silent party, vinyl market, second-hand market and workshops in many fields. The LED screen that dominates Zorlu Performing Arts Center throughout the festival will be reserved for Digi.logue! Two audiovisual performances created by AltCity Istanbul participants will offer guests unique experiences.

BONDED

DECOL New Media Studio artists Ahmet Said Kaplan and Hazal Döleneken invites the audience to a real-time “living” interaction with the installation “Bonded.”

“Every decision we have made or not, creates a bond between; people, past and future, moment and present, one and whole. Everything is connected.”

Created in a virtual three-dimensional space, this installation creates a waving simulation triggered when someone passes through the interactive zone. Developed with an actual technology of physics, the oscillation recreates the virtual representations of objective simulations in an area where the meaning of senses and interaction change.

Forming an interaction between the experienced work and those who experience, this work creates a real-time experience exclusive to each interaction. This interaction is happening in moment therefore it can never be seen again.

MONOLITH

Ethem Cem and Audiofil’s audiovisual performance “Monolith” provides a representation of the formation of cells in a different experience. Based on the Voronoi cells, the performance will be on display on the LED Screen at the Performing Arts Center.

In mathematics, a Voronoi diagram is a partitioning of a plane into regions based on distance to points in a specific subset of the plane. This set of points (called seeds, sites, or generators) is specified beforehand, and for each seed there is a corresponding region consisting of all points closer to that seed than to any other. These regions are called Voronoi cells. In biology, Voronoi diagrams are used to model a number of different biological structures, including cells and bone microarchitecture. Indeed, Voronoi tessellations work as a geometrical tool to understand the physical constraints that drive the organization of biological tissues.
