In 2010 and 2011, Marcus Wendt and Vera-Maria Glahn, together known as the art and design duo FIELD, felt like they had never spent more time glued to the BBC broadcast. And there was plenty to watch. Between the Arab Spring protests, the tsunami-earthquake-nuclear meltdown disaster that was Fukushima, and the unrelenting financial crisis, the news stream comprised a gripping and sobering portrait of a world seemingly in meltdown.
Then, just as Vera and Marcus watched in disbelief the social upheaval happening around the globe, the London riots brought it to their doorstep. Out of this feeling of ubiquitous turmoil comes a new project called Energy Flow, developed with support from The Creators Project. The ambitious new work is a generative film that links together 4-10 different story lines, each segment a metaphorical expression of the invisible forces and energies that shape our world. Energy Flow will premiere as an app experience for iOS and Android in early December 2012, and will tour The Creators Project events in 2013. Stay tuned for more details!
