US Premiere – Part of the Pittsburgh International Festival of Firsts
Country of Origin: Spain
“Beyond is an immersive, audiovisual installation by Barcelona-based research studio Playmodes that explores relationships between space, time, and perception. A geometrical architecture transforms space into a container for the abstract language of light and sound.
Beyond is also a study on visual and auditory perspective. Inside a long tunnel, vanishing points are made visible, creating an effect of endless depth and monumental scale. This perspective is enhanced through sound, as Playmodes invites us to “travel without moving” in a collision between inner and outer, darkness and light, death and life.
A note from the Festival Programming Team:
The Pittsburgh International Festival of Firsts offers this unique selection from the Signal Festival, the largest cultural event in the Czech Republic, whose integration of art, city space, and modern technology draws over 2 million attendees to Prague annually. Here it’s given a local twist.
