Since 2001, Lucy Benson & Marcel Weber produce visual media in the form of live visual performances, music videos, and installations. Their captivating visual worlds are the result of rigorous experimentation with computers, optics and real materials.
MFO are resident visual artists for multiple event series focused on the exploration of contemporary electronic music in Berlin and internationally. Performances and installations have featured at festivals such as CTM and transmediale (Berlin), Unsound (Krakow), TodaysArt (Den Haag), MUTEK (Montreal), and many other events across Europe, North America, and Australia.
Recent collaborations include audiovisual performances with the likes of Kode 9, Roly Porter, Kuedo, and Oni Ayhun. MFO also contributes video design to high culture productions, having worked with the Opera national de Paris, the Akademie der Künste Berlin, the Sophiensaele Berlin, and the brut theatre in Vienna. Larger projects are realised with an extended network of artists; MFO constantly seeks to collaborate, inform, and evolve.
