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.

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.

Futuresonic Fringe @ Arcspace, Hulme

with one comment

Social Technologies Summit Futuresonic is international festival trying to answer questions of tomorrow: how will we interact with each other and nature around us in future. Futuresonic festivals fringe at Arcspace in St. Wilfrid’s Enterprise Center answered the question trough its grassroots movement created events that hosted, among many other events, CultureRobot installation.

Arcspace is situated in ex-church building that is turned into St. Wilfrid’s Enterprise Center  since 1992  – a unique architecture where insides of the church are transformed into enterprise center for ethical businesses and NGOs. St. Wilfrid’s Enterprise Center is situated in Hulme, an  area near to Manchester city center. Hulme was mapped not only as a territory but also as a specific part of the city with vibrant activist community and a history. ArcSpace was visited by people of different age and heterogeneous needs and activities, exchanging their beliefs, stories and producing new possibilities for exchange and collaboration in spirit of free culture.

Culture Robot installation was created by help of the community from the start to the end. Materials were collected or borrowed instead of purchased or rented, help with programing for interactive part of the installation was done by  friends and volunteers, and installation debuted at Saturday on the open, community day, that hosted events inside and outside the Center.CR 3.0 installation created a new relationship between local community and this art piece. More than ever people were active in collecting material, discussing and managing to interconnect installation with other events during Futuresonic fringe.

CR 3.0 mapped more than just Hulme, it mapped its people, relationships, how they feel about city development, architecture, organizations working with art and culture in Manchester and how financing is a part of the culture and where does it lead culture to, it showed community strength and grassroots development.  During the open days, all ethnic, age, academic and other walks of life were united and exchanged opinions, questions and ideas.

Guerrilla busking was happening in the city throughout the day, graffite artists were spraying on the vans and trailers (an identifiable vehicle in the Redbrick’s area of the Hulme – where travelers and free people of all sorts live). People from recycled biodiesel group, local bcycle repair man, drummers, community artists, foreign guests, local volunteers and experts were united to make a truly social event, creating bridges between cultures, people and technology in universal feeling of unity.

Psychogeography in Linz

without comments

 

In order to create understanding and transformation of the world one must create adventures;
Terrain of the cityscape in relation to its emotive resistivity;
Ludic adventurism;
Off-limit areas;
Capture;
Explore;
Rethink;
Discover;
We are bored in the city, we really have to strain to still discover mysteries;


Slide show of the photo research in empty building in Linz, Dauphinestr. 9 >>

 

Psychogeography, a subfield of geography, was defined in 1955 by Guy Debord as “the study of the precise laws and specific effects of the geographical environment, consciously organized or not, on the emotions and behavior of individuals.”
