The first together with

Stina Hasse og Daniel Cermak-Sassenrath called EL-O

a1

The air is full of electromagnetic signals. They are all around us; in the air we breath and the things we touch. Most of us are not aware of this. We cannot see, hear or feel the Electromagnetic signals in our everyday life. However, when aided by technology we can become aware of the ever-present electromagnetic signals in the air.

In the EL-O performance made by Daniel Cermak-Sassenrath, Ayaka Okutsu, and Stina Hasse, you experience electromagnetic signals in unusual and beautiful ways. The EL-O performance centers around the electricomagnetic organisms that displays the electromagnetic signals in the air, as light and sound.
