I got earlier today _1minute69_‘s video clip from their latest performance B0DYSC4PES, presented few days ago at the LMP – Live Performers Meeting in Rome, that gathers live video performers, visual artists and VJs.
_1minute69_ is ‘an artist collective created by french digital media enthusiasts who share ideas and approaches on collaborative works. Bound by a common will to give the audience a playful experience through immersive and/or interactive universes, the collective artists develop pieces based on the grounds of illusion and representation, in the forms of performances, audiovisual installations, architectural projections and video stage designs.’
