Interview Ari Dykier, 2020 / Production : Moments!
The moment it all start?
I always had a passion for animation but the turning point was in 2013 when I saw Peter Greenaway performing live as a Vj as well as Android Jones projecting visuals on the dancer. I realized immediately what I wanted to do.
The moment you discover an artist who inspired you?
When I was teenager I saw a movie untitled "Labyrinth" by Jan Lenica for the first time but it took years to understand the impact it made on me.
The memorable moment of your career?
There are a few memorable moments. The first performance I did at Live Performers Meeting in 2015 in Rome, projecting on the wall of Old City in Jerusalem, performing with musicians like baroque orchestra Arte dei Suonatori or flutist Ewa Liebchen...
Also winning Vj Competition in Moscow in 2019.
The perfect time to create?
It’s always evening or the night with some coffee, good jazz music, early records of Pink Floyd or soundtrack from Ghost in the Shell .
The most inspiring cultural moment?
Live music concerts are always inspiring me. One of the unique and unforgettable was the concert of King Crimson in Wroclaw in 2016. Also museums with old masters are very important and inspiring.
The moment you dream of?
I’m dreaming of the moment when I could travel regularly all around the world with my visuals to share my art and visit new places.
