Air Condition

by Oliver Laric
2006, 2′
Presented at the 14th edition of Lo schermo dell’arte, 2021
Air Condition i s one o f Laric’s first video experiments in 3D animation. A hypnotic dance of movements that form the body of a snake that breaks apart, accompanied by a piece of Indian inspired electronic music.
Oliver Laric (Innsbruck, 1981) is a multimedia artist who, through sculpture and video, explores themes such as metamorphosis, hybridization, authenticity, and reproducibility. He is one of the first artists to manipulate YouTube contents. In his very short videos he combines typical aspects of the digital world, exploiting the potential of the platform and using it not only as an archive to extrapolate images, but also as a place of exposition and free diffusion of his works, generating a short circuit between the art world and popular culture.
