Guided by the idea of the live cinema in its truest sense, Nenad Popov and Klaravat developed methods for growing specific kinds of living matter directly on 16mm film loops: mostly friendly species of fungi like moulds or yeasts.
The biological processes transform the film while it is playing in the projector. This results in an incredible variety of evolving landscapes composed by often unexpected assortment of textures, patterns and colors which, removing the spectator from the real world, let his subconscious free to fall into a dream.
They created a gratifying environment where not just the moving image will seduce the audience but the mechanical sound and structure of the projectors.
During the festival Lighthouse, 15th of March 2012 at the Korzo Theater (http://www.korzo.nl/), The Hague, Nenad Popov and klaravat showed their grown mouldy films in a installation form.
