  • Synopsis
    Transience is an interactive, experimental Flash composition based on different text, sound and music components created by Agricola de Cologne.

    Both the creator and user are or become composers of sensual perceptions on different levels. Confronted with essential questions of human destination and while acting through the artistic environment the user starts creating a virtual sculpture consisting of images, associations and processes on different levels.

    The work is developed according the principle of SAMAC
    (Simultaneous Associative Media Art Composing) which describes Agricola’s individual way of experimental electronic writing: words, sound, images, animation, music and voice performance are developed simultaneously –depending on each other – in one long single process.

    Voice and sound performance by Agricola de Cologne.
    The movie is developed in Flash, directed and produced by Agricola de Cologne.
