The forms of things unknown

More than two hundred years old habitat of the Botanical garden is a home to different species of animals and plants. It’s a location that easily leads us into the microscopic world of the local ecosystem. Light and light refractions reveal a fairytale world of microscopically tiny animals. In cooperation with the research platform Proyecto Agua, I design the hybrid nature of two geographically different environments. I’m interested in the relations of colour/spectral elements and light textures in symbiosis with the moving information of a localised biotope, invisible to the naked eye. Digitalized colourful effects of light dictate the movement of the protozoa and thus show the way through the hybrid cross-sections between nature and technology.

Website about sound research on isolated acoustic environments in now online. Please have a look. Klick on the image below.

The sound work and audio-visual performances are based on recording process and sound implementation within the ‘site-specific’ acoustic space of the wild natural cave. Exploiting the acoustic properties and characteristics of the natural habitat authors identify as the primary compositional element and the environment for the emergence of the specific electro-acoustic composition.

Throughout the process artists made several sound recordings inside the cave. Recording experiments were made via acoustic potential of various materials found in the cave and also as intervention with the electronic sounds made by audio equipment they brought inside the cave.

Curators statement…. In addition to art in the narrower sense of the term we wish to present also certain practices from related fields and genres, such as the comic strip, photography, design, architecture, film, and performance art. There fields have all developed along their own, slightly different lines, which go beyond the scope of this exhibition, except where they overlap or intertwine, revealing certain common formal and topical contexts.
