Mobile Sound Fertilizer installed at Stützpunkt ​Teufelsberg, Berlin

without comments

MSF at Stützpunkt ​Teufelsberg gallery, Berlin, is an installation that uses renewable energy, plant, light and sound to create elements for questioning relations of “us” and “nature”.

Installation produces light and sound that benefits the plant. It is a mobile installation that is powered by sun light over photo-voltaic panel, electricity is stored in a battery that powers recycled mobile phone playing specific frequencies for the plant and light that shines trough red and blue led diodes benefiting plant growth and fruit development.

MSF is art for a plant, asking a question of art production, art institutions and reasons for art in anthropocene.

Sound Fertilizer at Tiefgarage Galery, Cologne

without comments

Permacultural installation that utilizes sound, light and living plant  “Sound  Fertilizer” is in its further developement at Cologne gallery Tiefgarage situated in multicultural Ebertplatz, between 22. and 26. July 2018.

Zucchini plant is positioned at the middle of the gallery, among other works. It has been planted in the straw bale at Center for Creative Solution in Croatia and after few months transported with  car over the half borders to Cologne. Cucurbita L has no known origin, some coming from USA and some from India. Its multiculturality resembles every large EU city and especially Ebertplatz where it is situated. 

Lighted with the light of 4000K enables growth and flowering, while two recycled mobile phones play sets of frequencies created especially for that plant.

Sound Fertilizer encourages plant to grow in healthy and stable conditions, inside the gallery, speaking on more levels about the anthropocentric culture that grows on both neo liberal capitalism or social state of liberal humanism, while neither of options are furthering away from unbalanced relationship of people as subject and plants as object.

This installation makes plant a subject, as sound is artistically produced and intended for a plant. Art in this case, is for a plant.

16 channel sound fertilizer

without comments

“16 Channels Sound Fertilizer” sound installation uses renewable energy sources to run multiple speakers that play sounds offered by various researchers. Sounds include different frequency ranges, noise generators and musical interpretations as well as sound compositions offered by French mathematician and physicist Joel Sternheimer who developed a study on protein synthesis activation. Installation inquires in an alternative to industrial agriculture and its extensive usage of pesticide and chemical fertilizers that is contributing to climate change.
