D-Fuse presented their new work Undercurrent as the closing event of the Festival’s Sunderland launch night. Undercurrent is a multi-screen live audiovisual extravaganza, projected across the walls of the National Glass Centre. It explores the changing nature of urban life in China and the UK, inspired by Shanghai, Guangzhou, London and Sunderland. D-Fuse follow rivers as a medium for travel, transport, trade and communication, exploring and documenting the urban spaces they find along the way, in sound, photography and video. The resulting work captures the emotions, histories and stories of each city.
D-Fuse are one of the UK’s top VJ collectives, the group includes artists and designers who work across a range of creative media, from art and architecture, to live audiovisual performances. D-Fuse's work has been presented internationally at events including Sonar, Barcelona; onedotzero, London; Mori Arts Centre, Tokyo; Eyebeam, New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Ars Electronica, Linz and many others.
