To start off the year with fireworks we welcome you to Zefir7's Audio Visual Night! We’ve invited three designers from Rotterdam to illuminate Tuesday night in Stroom, The Hague.
Experience the VJ-work of Jeisson Drenth with a special performance for Zefir7. Enter the visual world of Pleun Gremmen, reflecting on internet subculture and politics. Close the night up in smoke in an interactive projection by Zalán Szakács.
Feel welcome to have some New Year’s drinks!
For the past four years, Jeisson Drenth has used the practice of VJ-ing as an incentive to document his environments (natural and urban landscapes) and to study contemporary visual culture. His sets show a raw mix of motion graphics created with custom video gear (hardware based glitch video production), archives of networked media content, and photogrammetry (photography based 3D modelling). In 2019 he will focus on developing a series of solo performances.
Pleun Gremmen builds stories in the frictional area between visual violence and content-based clearness. Their strength is their duo: where Saskia aims her view on conceptual landscapes, Hanneke will put her focus on the human details. Their professional, co-creating and challenging way of working results in innovative, honest productions that are strictly executed and always come with a strategic impact. Amongst their clientele they count many organisations who find themselves in the centre of the earth, that are committed to their message and are not afraid of a strong statement.
Zalán Szakács is a post-digital designer, who explores media theories through the use of light, space, and sound. He translates his conceptual research into interactive and immersive environments, creating atmospheres that challenge human perception.
Zalán performed as live VJ at festivals such as Amsterdam Dance Event, Dekmantel in Amsterdam, Sound:frame in Vienna, Atlas Electronic in Marrakesh, and many clubs around Europe.
He graduated from Design Academy Eindhoven (Man and Communication) in 2017 and currently studies Media Design: Experimental Publishing at the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam.
