One of my themes is ‘Identity’ on social media and how we have a persona digitally, which is completely different to whom we are in person. It makes us question what is real and what isn’t. This theme reminded me of EDM concerts and how Djs use lights and electronics in order to create an atmosphere for their fans. As if the fans are stepping into a new world.
An example of this is Aphex twin visual who create electronic music. The lights and lazers create human-like characters that are either cast onto the crowd or onto a screen. These effects are very impactful because they reflect the artist and they are in sync with the songs. Personally, I find these types of visuals quite scary so it is not something that I would want to see at a concert.
