In today’s mercurial, complex, and ambiguous world, our bodies oscillate between the virtual and the real more than ever. The world-famous collective Rhizomatiks is testing the web, presenting performances and experimental online-based systems, and approaching these situations from a variety of angles.

A collaboration between Daito Manabe (Rhizomatiks) and Kenichiro Shimizu (PELE) for Kazu Makino, ‘Come Behind Me, So Good!’ music video combines photogrammetry and mixed reality to create a seamless dream-like landscape, invigorated by Elevenplay performance.

On April 11–13th MUTEK Montréal presents the 4th edition of MUTEK_IMG, their offshoot festival focused on digital creation. CAN/HOLO was invited to curate five panels within this year’s program, that bring together leading artists and thinkers to consider pressing aesthetic and sociopolitical questions.

CAN is thrilled to announce the first edition of #ACTFestival – a four-day summit that combines a world class exhibition, a symposium, a performance and workshop program, and takes place November 25th to 28th / Gwangju, South Korea.

Taking place at the Scopitone Festival in Nantes / France on the 15th september 2015 (8:15 pm) is the latest iteration of CAN initiated Transcranial, an ambitious, collaborative performance project by Klaus Obermaier, Kyle McDonald and Daito Manabe

Latest in the series of collaborative projects between Elevenplay and Rhizomatiks is Shadow, a performance comprised of 3 drones with a spot light and one dancer.

Earlier this year, Resonate festival was the host to Transcranial, a CAN initiated project bringing Klaus Obermaier, Daito Manabe and Kyle McDonald to Belgrade for two weeks to work on a new performance piece, creating a bridge between three festivals in Europe.

Seven years in the running, organised by Rhizomatiks and curated by Daito Manabe, Flying Tokyo goes Super with a new space and larger audience, more speakers and a workshop programme. CAN was there and we are pleased to report back.

Machine that uses Arduino controlled ball dispensers, motorised rotating steel plates and LED lights to create a nexus between electronic music and a sound responsive mechanical object.

This project, a collaboration between Dentsu, Honda Motor and Rhizomatiks brings back Senna’s engine sound from that lap 24 years ago in the form of an installation set on the original Suzuka circuit that uses light and sound.
