ARS Electronic // Artistic Journalism Tour

Information and surveillance society, climate change & human rights issues, various prize-winning works from the Prix Ars Electronica 2021, moderated by Karen Palmer M.A

Cranrust Vfx's second project working again with award winning International Artist & TED Speaker Karen Palmer. Karen was the moderator for the 'Artistic Journalism Tour' for the Prix Ars Electronica 2021.

Building on some of the visual motifs and the effects which we developed for an earlier project of Karens we created a dynamic hypnotising opening and closing title credit sequences, exploring Karens ideas of being a 'Storyteller from the Future'.
We had the opportunity to play, develop and create audio reactive waveforms and 3d particle form structures, punctuated with distorted typography design, too much fun!

The information and surveillance society, climate change, human rights issues are all critical global topics that need addressing and Karen and her speakers take us on a tour of the artists mind, motivations, methodologies and intended impacts.

The more the data banks record about each one of us, the less we exist.
