An eye-popping array of audio-visual performances showing us where digital technology meets nature

Natures by Quayola and Mira Calix

Brighton Digital Festival went out out with a bang, a buzz and an eye-popping array of performances to dazzle the senses.
A brilliant line-up of audio-visual performers translated nature into immersive digital experiences. Data is Nature featured the Brighton premiere of Natures by renowned musician Mira Calix and visual artist Quayola. In this performance, the organic behaviours of plants became part of an audio-visual world where the natural and the artificial coexist harmoniously.
Data is Nature also included Paul Prudence, a London-based musician and visual artist, known for his stunning audio-visual performances, which use data visualisation and generative techniques to give us striking new views of nature.
Prudence also meditates on art, science and nature at his excellent blog, http://dataisnature.com, the inspiration for the title of the performances.
