Aquamorph

Aquamorph is the first part of a loosely knit video series.

There are similarities between the wavelike motion of water, an ocean and the experience of the internet - and how one can struggle to remember when there is a superabundance of data. Once gentle scenes, social media statuses and soft substances can be seen, changing, often creating a nostalgic, fleeting feeling. Other times flashing motions and scrolling visual feeds resemble the chaotic nature of impulses. Short, blurry and sometimes sudden, just like the way you recall your memories. Aquamorph considers our relationship with the net on a visceral level - how in some instances the overabundance can be anxiety inducing, and at other times feel therapeutically soothing.

The video is created using liquid simulations, 3D animations of growing lotuses, androgynous bodies, solar panels and VFX.

Director Biography - Gergő Kovács

"Gergő Kovács is a twenty-one-year-old illustrator and artist based in Budapest. As a member of the new generation of young artists who observe the Internet’s effects on aesthetics, culture and society, Kovács creates multimedia works that include both physical objects such as large swathes of printed canvas, and digital art including video loops, 3D illustration and “photobashed” collage art. This approach reflects the themes of Kovács’ work as well, aiming directly at the correlation of our real lives and the ones we lead online.

This new wave of very current post-Internet / Internet aware art is rarely seen in eastern european galleries, while growing rapidly in popularity abroad — Kovács’ work has already been shown in Beijing, Frankfurt, Los Angeles, New York and London." - Dario Dević
