Αmalgamation [ video installation]

Sylvia Nicolaides – Nicolas Iordanou


‘Amalgamation’ is a three channel expanded documentary with three synchronized projections and music spatially distributed, that create an immersive experience for the viewer. As an expanded documentary it examines the polyphonic adaptations of traditional Cypriot and Mediterranean music performed by the Amalgamation Choir, through a modern approach, and discusses the elements of heritage, history, culture, language and the emotions of the particular geographical region.

This video triptych is composed by three suspended ‘floating’ screens that are visually interconnected and synchronized, breaking and rethinking the traditional narrative form.

Surrounded by imagery, sounds and music, the viewers will find themselves in the center of a performative experience.
