Altered Ego is an A/V performance by artist duo APOTROPIA, Antonella Mignone and Cristiano Panepuccia, which explores the digital (de)materialization of human identity. How does the fundamental question "Who am I?" change in times of digitalization?
Symbolic masks accompany us throughout this audiovisual concert, in which the languages of video art and video dance intersect with those of electronic music and vjing.
