Dome Fest West's Summer Metaverse Series presents "SUPREMATISM. The day before" and "LABYRINTH," experimental fulldome films by Sergey Prokofyev.
Suprematism Description: " Suprematism is expressed in the combinations of various planes of the simplest geometrical configurations (in the geometric shapes of straight line, square, circle and rectangle). The combination of multicolor and different-sized geometric figures forms the balanced asymmetrical compositions laced with internal motion. The exhibition "The Last Futuristic" was named due to the organizers' idea to complete the futuristic period in Russian painting and to mark the beginning of Suprematism. In the red corner of the room, traditional for the icon in an Orthodox house, was placed the "Black Square". This short-length film is the architectural and visual experiment in the creation of the spatial compositions based on the suprematic paintings from the exhibition “0,10”."
Labyrinth Description: “A labyrinth is a space urging a person to constant movement. When viewed from above, we have an objectively distinguishable idea of a line, a pattern or an ornament. In a labyrinth, we fall under the visual impact of a particular configuration of space, which it is impossible to get out of, being stuck in the disorientation affect. We switch to a subjective perception of life. As we move continuously, the perception of the labyrinth space changes every second. Squares, streets, passages, corridors, rooms form a dynamic structure of the urban labyrinth, while going through which we are influenced by numerous constantly changing images. The film represents an attempt to combine the architectural fantasy of a labyrinth and the visual experience of walking through over time.”
