Oblivious Artefacts
visual art and much more. We are a collective working in Roma, Palermo, Berlin.
Oblivious Artefacts is a visual experiment, a collaboration between Ignazio Mortellaro,Marco Morici, José Florentino, and Luca Mortellaro. Their work explores the dynamics between people and the use of space, and the interaction of natural and fabricated environments. The medium of video acts as a tool for investigating the perception of images, invoking moods that range from the surreal to the objective. Technology is kept to a minimum and technical restriction is imposed in order to release creativity. Oblivious Artefacts take influence from early C20th experimental cinema where utterly iconic imagery was created despite huge technological constraints. Each Oblivious VJ set or AV performance involves the use of original material and forms an ongoing research into human anatomy and landscapes. Oblivious Artefacts is also a visual label, have also worked with outstanding underground labels, including Prologue, Edit Select, Ear to Ground, Meerestief , Lineal Records. 2009 sees Oblivious join the Stroboscopic Artefacts family, a Berlin based techno label where they are the resident graphic designers; realising the entire design concepts from 12” artwork to video teasers to VJ sets.
