QUANTUM JOY IS VICTOR MORALES' NEW PERFORMANCE. In this show, Morales takes his audiences for the ultimate digital performance ride, where particle robots, computer vision and mapped dynamic projections are used to answer universal questions about purpose in art and life.
Morales’s experience as puppeteer and theatre performer adds a humorous and humanizing touch to his digital creations. The artist interacts with his digital environments, as they exist in the way they would with traditional puppets and sets. Hi-tech medium notwithstanding, the storytelling is at the core of the project.
Quantum Joy debuted on December 4th 2015 at Dixon Place NYC.
Morales's recent work Maria is currently on display in the GLITCH level of GAME VIDEO/ART. A SURVEY.

In 1992, Morales completed a Master’s degree in Technology Applied to the Arts at New York University’s Gallatin Division. He spent more than a decade in New York City. Since 2003, Morales, “has been obsessed with the art of video game modifications and has implemented different game engines into most of the works he has participated in or created.” His performances with game engines (in particular, CryEngine) have consistently challenged the nature of simulation. Morales has performed a number of solo shows in art galleries, festivals, and events, including Performance Space 122, The Little Theater in New York City, The Collapsable Hole in Brooklyn, and Gessner Allee in Zurich, Theater Freiburg, and The Hau in Berlin, where he now lives and works
