Deconstructing in heart of Rio

without comments

During opening session of Dorkbot Rio a team of deconstructionalists have performed once again. This time a ‘Fusca’ (popular Beetle or Volkswagen) produced in 1968 was carved down on 24th May 2008, 40 years after it was produced and 40 years after counterculture and those revolutionary days which are so much evoked in the Brazilian media today, due to older rich people remembering them as the ‘days when they were driving Beetles with the flowers in their hair’.

Dorkbot Rio was hosted by Circo Voador, famous club in the heart of Rio da Janeiro. Production unit were: Bruno Tarin, Bruno Vianna, Giuliano Bonorandi, Frado on sound and Kruno Jošt. Thousands of thanx to many others that helped and worked with us making video or photographic documentation we can all enjoy now. Thanx again to all people that came for the event and joined in at the end in the manner that I have encountered only with people from Brasil.

DK:07:DU

without comments

Deconstructing a car in amphitheater lookalike back yard was a successful step towards a participative mode in performing with young people. DK:07:DU performance was joined by two young and enthusiastic car destructionists in Dubrovnik. ZB introduced a new element in a performance – fire. Cheesy idea, but it was not planed. It was as natural as this performance is.

cellular automata presentation-Kunserkaden-Munich

“An annual mini a=v FESTIVAL features workshops, live sound-visual acts, improvisational concerts/performances, audience-interactive installations and other live and non-passive forms of audio-visual uncommercial communication. It aims to present and promote independent artistic developments and encourage experimental *do it yourself* activities.”

Hacked portable radio

Many hands joining together to create chaos out of, sometimes too structured, north-west-European culture, de-constructing old radios and constructing improvisational sound sessions (concerts) for large number of culture consumers in rich spoiled west. Human Theramin antenna was controlled by visitors joining hands – the first art gallery opening where I have had the pleasure to see something similar.

CA on DORKBOT SWISS

without comments

Presentation of Cellular automata as a tool for organic / automatic / generative / evolutive computer music in Kunstraum Walcheturm during DORKBOT SWISS has been a complete success. Much has been discussed, many question raised and overall atmosphere full of organic and organizational interferences.

deconstructingpula.jpg

During MediaMediteranea’07 festival in Pula performance ‘Deconstruction of Construction’ was held in front of cultural center Karlo Rojc on Thursday 06/07/07. Peugot was cut in the half with help of the one person that came to participate in performance on our second call to general public. We also thank organizer Marino, his soldier Zeko (breaking the windshield in the movie), Pino (for hammering) and unknown bystander who joined us.
Deconstruction of Construction is performance with social awareness, created by Denis Miksic and Kruno Jost who are always on lookout for a new cars to cut. And to cut it with participation of as many people as possible.
