Kafka’s Insect is an interdisciplinary performance based on the short novel ‘The Metamorphosis’ by Franz Kafka, published in 1915. The interdisciplinary profile of this performance presents the narrative through a cycle of video-art scenes, accompanied by a live piano score and modular analog synthesizers. In Kafka’s Insect, the narrative is presented through the sections in the story that portray sound, such as the prodding of feet as the furniture in Gregor’s room is moved around by his mother and sister, a medicinal glass vial shattering on the floor, or rain pelting against the window panes. The accessibility of the performance transcends the demand for the spoken word through the universal language of images, sound and music. The video was shot with the Achromat lens created in France in 1839. This lens captures an illuminous soft focus with rich textured backgrounds - rarely achieved with modern lenses.
