Joost Rekveld & Andrey Smirnov

As a continuation of a recent audiovisual improvisation, Andrey Smirnov and Joost Rekveld started a new collaboration inspired by ‘Stigmergy’. This concept defines the stimulation of workers through the results they’ve accomplished. It relates to the chemical traces which regulate the activities of social insects such as ants, termites and bees, allowing for communication. Based on this principle Rekveld and Smirnov developed systems which generate images and sound which are used to create a new live composition.
