In today's day and age, technology has ensured a saturation of our senses. For instance, we absolutely have to have a mobile phone and surf the internet on our phones or laptops. It's this very saturation that fascinates me," says Surabhi Saraf. A San Francisco-based new media artist, composer and performer, Saraf has a BFA in Painting from the Faculty of Fine Arts, MSU, Baroda, and an MFA in Art and Technology from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. On January 17, she will be piquing the senses of a select crowd at Mumbai's Max Mueller Bhavan by putting up a live audio-visual performance, titled Illuminen.
Given her background in experimental sound, Indian classical music and choreography, Saraf will be creating audio and video works that are inspired by the ways in which we perceive temporal phenomena through movement — both visual and sonic. "The evening will start with Spinning Four, a visually rich immersive sonic experience. There will be very rich visuals — these are huge projections on the walls — accompanied by my live performance," she explains.
Interestingly, the second part of the evening will see her present the track Illuminen, where the crowd will get to interpret sound and light movements through closed eyes. "The idea here is to undertake an inward journey," says the artist, whose debut solo exhibition will open at Galerie Mirchandani + Steinruecke on January 23.
