Founder of Openshowstudio.gr Sofia Touboura, is an Athens (GR) based contemporary audiovisual artist, experimental director, and electronic music producer.
The virtue of Sofia's intellectual canvas is lushly detailed on a personal storyboard and each duotone of life (humor and trauma), never clash actively, though prevail through a musical perspective. We go through the electronic, the visual and the sonic experiences to make material live eternally to our expanding senses. Sofia is my Greek Holly Herndon pushing the boundaries even more with a personal statement I do love the most:
Instead of Cartesian dualism of spirit vs. matter, my work is dominated by a contemporary physics/ quantum mechanics approach, where matter and thought aren’t defined by their contradiction but are both of the same essence, equally energy (thought is a form of electromagnetic energy) and particles, depending on the moment and on the point of view.
In a game of contradictions and reconciliations, the composition is maintained in a state of a dynamic, tense equilibrium.
There is a conscious concern to embody transformation and transubstantiation in the final visual result of each creative process (οr catharsis), rather than a sole exposure of personal experience and observation
