Radio Cona: Winter FM

11 02 2015

Streaming & Performances:

  • Thursday, 19th February @ Pritličje, Ljubljana   7 P.M.
  • Performances by: Robertina Šebjanič, Petra Kapš, Kikiriki, Miha Ciglar, Marko Batista, Jeff Kolar

The five-day broadcast radioCona:WinterFM resumes and takes to the next level the featured parameters of radioCona activities by stressing the dimension of nocturnal radio transmission. It plays with the idea of heightened perception that can happen only by withdrawing from the daily rhythm of multifunctional hyperactivity. The winter, commonly associated with silence and stillness, outlines the programme’s framework, at once breaking and reflecting on it on different levels.

The exhibition concerns the unveiling of creative space established between art and technology. As an artist, Marko Batista is difficult to situate within a specific artistic direction for his works are created at the intersection of performative intermedia practices, sound and visual installations, and physical-sensorial experiments.

 The basic principle of operation followed by the artist is the exploration of intermediate spaces both in the physical sense, where electronic signal – acoustic or visual – are produced via home-made interfaces, as well as in the ideational sense, where human perception is explored in a world suffused with electronic communication, digital devices and technology. Namely, human perception is adapted to a certain kind of use of technology and, therefore, it is limited to a certain type of experience. By creating hybrid technological, electromagnetic or chemical systems, Marko Batista challenges the mystification of technology while he also opens up new ways of thinking about it. With his experimental systems, which bring together various fields, he expands the field of human sensorial perception and the phenomenology of unstable audio-visual systems in space and time.

The international Festival of Computer Arts/ IFCA 2014 wraps the 20 years of research up. This year marks the 20th anniversary of research of bright but also dark sides of computer art, which has never been so convenient, but at the same time, and perhaps because of it, so complex. Looking to the future, the development of technologies, techniques and computer art pushes the boundaries of impossible and moves forward with global steps.

The festival has successfully navigated from its beginnings, in 1994, till the present day, to the point 2.0, which is not only the interactive break point of the modern World Wide Web and the ways of its usage but also the point when the IFCA is turning into the third decade, and thus completely intermedia period.

On the Opening Night Nonotak and Marko Batista will be presenting new intermedia performances at Kino Udarnik at 8:30 p.m.

The experimental systems of electromagnetic radiation and transfer of information deal with the exploration of visual and sound images, be it sound interventions in space or the fragmentation of media images in the transfer of information.
