Mariska de Groot / Matteo Marangoni / Dieter Vandoren

Mariska De Groot, Matteo Marangoni and Dieter Vandoren are members of the artist collective iii. Their work explores speculative branches in the tree of media evolution. Using both new and obsolete technologies they create instruments and performances that engage with the human senses and the human body.



LFS2//Lampyridae is an environment formed by a network of elements scattered in space that interact with each other through light and sound signals. Rotating planes of light, bursts of sound pulses, shimmering plasma tubes and a swarm of electronic creatures compose an artificial ecosystem generating patterns of events in the space surrounding the observer.

LFS2//Lampyridae is a project made for KIKK festival, in collaboration with FIBER festival, by Mariska De Groot, Matteo Marangoni and Dieter Vandoren. It is part of a broader research trajectory on composing immersive audiovisual environments with autonomous distributed devices.
