Sound Fertilizer at Tiefgarage Galery, Cologne

without comments

Permacultural installation that utilizes sound, light and living plant. Sound  Fertilizer is developing further in Cologne gallery Tiefgarage at 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 flowerin, while two recycled mobile phones play sets of freequencies 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.

After 3 weeks workshops with students of Srishti University for Art, Design and technology in Banglaore, 14.12.17. an exhibition was opened in the complex of RMZ Ecoworld in Banglaore, India’s most rapidly growing city that has devastating effect on environment. As Bangalore is known as Silicon Valley of India, its population is growing at amazing rates. RMZ IT Park, with office spaces, health activity facilities, shopping, dining, amphitheater and art gallery, promotes itself as “work-leisure sustainable environment where natural and architectural forms are symbiotically integrated using responsible planning and precise engineering”.

Ecocentric situated itself in one of the gallery pavilions as organically looking installation juxtapositioned to human designed and engineered pavilion that proudly announces its ecological concept. A small forest was introduced into the square box. that were fed by the custom frequencies from small speakers placed in the installation.

De(con)structing Conformity

without comments

De(con)structing Conformity – video documentation from GentleJunk on Vimeo.

De(con)structing Conformity is performance done during the opening of the exhibition REFLECTION – Ecology of Cultural Landscape on 22nd November 2012. in gallery Scheier, Čakovec, Croatia.
In De(con)structing Conformity Kruno Jošt together with collaborators Maja Kohek and Simon Podlauf destroys an armchair as a symbol of conformity in contemporary society. The armchair represents a passive attitude in an even more passive society where one doesn’t want to lose their armchair while making political moves. It gives us false security and is as such a symbol of power. The de(con)struction of the symbol enables reflection on our own conformity. The question now is how we confront conformity in contemporary society?

Textil{e}tronics
From textile to electronic thread, from substance to fashion item

02.03.2012. – 01.04.2012.
Galženica Gallery, Velika Gorica, Croatia
http://www.galerijagalzenica.info/node/2819 

 

‘Let’s now delve deep into the fluff’
Massimo Banzi, Getting Started with Arduino

‘Following the development of a simple thread into complex new media objects, the exhibition will touch upon recent developments in the areas of wearable technology and electronic sculpting through lumino light objects and the presentation of Arduino microcontrollers.

Dealing with sculptural textile (J. Štefanec) and electronic thread (A. Klančić), designed substance and new meanings of objects (P. Dona), as well as socially responsible textile art (M. M. Pungerčar), the exhibition presents an overview of contemporary new media directions and questions the meaning of the medium as such. The social and emacipatory aspects of textile arts are clear – they invoke thoughts of industrial manufacturing, DIY subculture and self-sustained systems, especially in relation to recent similar developments in the fields of open source and wearable technology (Arduino, Body Pixel Studio).

The thread as a seemingly fragile, but basically all-pervasive, almost indestructible matter, and the wire as a conductor and an arbiter of electrons are hereby linked. Juxtaposed in a way, the materials provide the cohesive narrative for the objects presented. The exhibition examines this link from the microscopic amorphous shape and suppleness of the material, all the way to the subtle robustness of the objects. Mechanic perfection, be it the human body or a machine, is not a prerogative here, since the delightful awkwardness of mechanics does not comply with the projected reality. The uncertainty of the performance which accompanies every new-media art process, is quite well suited to the fragility of the textile thread.’
