Postanalog or Post-Analog

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

So I have decided to start classifying a lot of the new art I see as Postanalog (Post-analog). It is the only way I can describe or categorize things like Art Robotica or projects such as Mortal Engine

Postanalog is similar to the term Postdigital but with a dramatic difference. Postanalog is art that embraces digital technology. This is that art that sees humanity and digital technology as symbiotic. It is when you see a natural element and an algorithmic digital element combine and for a new beautiful form.

Postanalog will revolutionize the world as we see it.

Mortal Engine by Chunky Move

I think this performance has made an impact in my creative life more than any so far, yet it has taken me around 4 years to figure out.

It is the new dawn of beauty, when the machine meets the human and algorithms work with spontaneous human nature to give birth to this new Art.

The Video was done by chunky move a company that specializes in projection and video tracking technology that responds to the movement of performers. Fascinating.

And now a new generation of art is evolving that relates to this genera of projection enhanced performance.
