Adrián Regnier Chávez (Mexico City, Mexico, 1989) studied Visual Arts at the National School of Sculpture, Painting and Engraving, ‘La Esmeralda’. Since 2011, he has developed important work in the field of experimental video and animation; since 2015 he has expanded his practice, stablishing himself worldwide as a pioneer of experimental animation for Virtual Reality. He links art and science into the development of experimental research and production strategies. His work entails a network of models that observe the complex socio-geopolitical processes behind the nuclear arms race and its exponential escalation; revealing the simple principles, rules and patterns that govern human behavior. He has extensive experience in the production of video, motion graphics and special effects; as well as in the conceptualization of integral research systems that articulates the work of art as a model for the analysis of reality. His work has been selected, exhibited and awarded in more than 180 festivals and national and international competitions of video art, cinema, animation and contemporary art.
Itera is a traditional media animation that strives to exemplify the roles of repetition and identity in real life. Through a series of iterative phases, what begins as a simple, recognizable form eventually sprouts a matrix of itself. Of unconstrained and thriving change.

This is its story.
Cardinal Inaccessible is a piece that submits the lyrics of the Mexican national anthem to voice recognition of Google Voice Search algorithms. Updating in real time, Cardinal Inaccessible displays the search suggestions while providing the most accurate phonetic result. In this way, the piece is developed in segments of a second longer duration, for each of its iterations.
Throughout this process, the multiple phonetic / rhythmic interpretations of the first four verses make up a multiverse of meaning in constant expansion.
Before the brain of a mega-computer network, decades of patriotic alliteration are sifted with a new light: that of absurdist rhizomatics. The one of the true meaning of a nation.
L.O.V.E. stands for “Laboratorio Orbital de Video Experimental” (Experimental Video Orbital Laboratory), it is the first micro-multimedia experimental novel of our times.
Using hypertext, QRs, Video, Audio and experimental storytelling narratives. It interweaves a complex and profound experience for the viewer, encouraging introspective, discovery, curiosity and rhyzomatic ludopathism. It also tells the story of a nuclear cloud of love humanity shall soon be turned into.
