    Dissolving Localities est un projet où tout et tout le monde deviennent œuvre d’art. Le sample live (dj/ vj) est recadré pour compiler un environnement dans son intégralité : a ville et les gens deviennent des instruments, de la matière, des œuvres d’art.

    Abstract : Urban space and the prosumer – The future of artistic creation ?

    Joseph Beuyse once said that everyone is an artist. We live in a time in which this sentence has become a reality. Dissolving Localities, which exemplifies my vision on the future of artistic creation in the digital age, is a project in which not only everyone is an artist, but everyone and everywhere are in fact a work of art. In a time defined by the democratization of tools, standards and systems; an abundance of possibilities, competition, choices and quality – an era of the prosumer and technology, this project connects directly between urban space, the prosumer and the arts by joining them together. Live sampling d.j./v.j. techniques are reframed so that instead of sampling and looping songs, the artists sample an environment. The city and people becomes the score and the “instrument” upon which audio/visual artists “play”. The ‘where’ and the ‘who’ become the ‘what’. Thus the project takes the idea of the prosumer to the level in which life is transformed into a work of art.
