Venelin Shurelov is a Bulgarian multimedia artist and set designer of international recognition. In “Rotor” he continues his interest in the interaction of body and technology. Here he wants to tell a story of his own. To that end Shurelov builds a special facility in front of the audience: a complex kinetic electrical mechanism. Then comes the unexpected and somehow ironic climax when the artist’s body merges with the structure and heads off to the orbit of a fictional world. “Rotor” was presented in the prestigious center for digital arts Ars Electronica Center – Deep Space in Linz, Austria.
