MIRA 2015 humanoid erotic form

For the third consecutive year, Barcelona based audiovisual studio Device will be in charge of this very significant part of the festival, and this year they have created a graphic campaign inspired by humanoid erotics located in an artificial digital context.

For this new edition, Device has proposed itself to personify the festival in a humanoid form. Characters with face and eyes that go to the public through sensuality” in the words of the Poblenou study members. The new image of MIRA aims to explore eroticism placing it in a context where artificial possibilities and imagination are extended thanks to the technological factor. The graphic campaign will be the junction between the instincts of the human being and the present technique linked to the digital world. An avant-garde aesthetic linked to the Internet era.

MIRA 2015 imagery will take the form of teasers. The first one will be published to coincide with the festival’s first announcement of artists.

Barcelona based studio Blacktie will be in charge of MIRA 2015 website, that adapts to the new aesthetic and graphic image of the festival.
