Big Data Poetry is an audiovisual live performance / Installation by Geert Mul (visuals) and Michel Banabila (music). Mul’s visuals consist of millions of random downloaded images in which visual patterns are unveiled by applying image analysis algorithms. During the performance Mul and Banabila bring sound and image together in a custom self-designed digital setup which allows for improvisation and interaction between sounds and video.
