A beautiful woman’s face in four oversized projections, side by side. Accompanied by highly energetic electronic sound. A media installation, obviously – and a spectacular one at that! "MODELL 5", first presented 25 years ago in London by Kurt Hentschläger and Ulf Langheinrich as Granular Synthesis, is still a sensation to this day. As a digital image skin, dancer Akemi Takeya’s face serves to illustrate how audiovisual technologies can compose an image: it is divided into layers that transpose into each other, moving in different directions; the face rotates laterally, vibrates and is caught in a rotational excess that generates a true monster.
