Media OS 5.1, concerns the over-stimulation of digital information and its effects on human behaviour. The live multi-media show in 5.1 surround sound takes the audience on an hour-long journey of a commuter on the London tube. Through their eyes, one can see films concerning global warming, fake news, social media consumption and surrealism to name a few. The audience can interact with the films using their smartphones and QR-code reader app which links them to the scientific research behind the work.
10 Bespoke films were specifically developed for each song informed by the lyrical content. Each one of the films is unique, but collectively they tell a story. The filmmakers hail from various countries including Chile, Bulgaria, Hungary, Norway, Italy and the UK. The film styles in which they employ include; animation, digital coding, collage and motion acting.
