PORTRAITS is an audiovisual art project created by Ben Moenks, Chris Hill, Jian Kellett Liew and Rem Kellett Liew.
The project aims at exploring the nature of the ubiquitous concept of STREAMS, combining abstracted nature videography, improvised ambient sonics and a custom, browserbased online player, through which PORTRAITS can be presented as a livestreaming online exhibition.
In today's digital world, data, just like water, air, fire, or anything else, continuously flows. The recipient doesn't necessarily know where the data is coming from - be it from a file, a socket or any other source.
This concept is derived directly from nature. By receiving a stream of water, the recipient does not know where it is coming from - be it from a lake, a fountain or any other source.
