A dual screen, surround sound live cinema performance that explores themes of time, memory and meaning, in remembrance of British poet, art critic and painter John Berger

Atemporal 2.0 is a single or dual-screen, surround-sound live cinema performance created in memory of the British novelist, painter, and poet John Berger. It is a poetic audiovisual concert that unites original musical compositions, documentary film, and video art created by collaborating audio-visual artists Tim Cowie and Christopher Thomas Allen.

Their combined sonic and visual outputs are brought together live to co-create a unique cinematic work that reflects Berger’s thoughts and philosophies on time and memory.

Atemporal 2.0 is simultaneously a musical composition, an evolving video artwork, and an experimental documentary; a dynamic live audiovisual essay that contemplates our human condition and celebrates an important voice in art criticism and cultural thinking.”

Equipment: 2 x Laptop, Controllers, DJM800 mixer
