Ode to Jerusalem Arthichoke

without comments

“Ode to Jerusalem Artichoke” was primarily created as a composition written by Kruno Jošt for violin and clarinet consequentially developed as a performance with Matej Hermšćec on clarinet and Mija Dugandžić-Marić on violin in the Jerusalem artichoke field.

Jošt’s composition was conceived and a musical notation was made for a plant from the family Helianthus tuberosus L., which botanically belongs to the family Asteraceae (Compositae). When creating the composition, the specie, the way of growth, the time when it blooms and the relationship it creates with the environment (pollinators, other plants and animals) and advantages of cultivation, (e.g. soil remedy and easiness of growing in permaculture) as well as tuberous growths used in human and animal nutrition were taken into account.

This plant is cultivated all over the world today due to its edible and medicinal tuberous root, and it was cultivated by Native Americans even before the arrival of European settlers. Jerusalem artichoke has a wide range of therapeutic effects: immunostimulating, sedative, tonic, atherosclerotic, hypoglycemic, laxative. It stabilizes sugar and cholesterol, as well as metabolism, removes radionuclides, stimulates tissue regeneration and normalizes intestinal microflora, is a nutrient base and building material for intestinal epithelium and increases immunity and hemoglobin, increases absorption of calcium and magnesium ions which is important for osteoporosis prevention. reduces appetite and thus contributes to the rapid saturation of the body with food. It effectively satisfies the need for carbohydrates and does not increase blood glucose levels and stimulates insulin production, prevents obesity and salt deposition, neutralizes toxins and heavy metals.

The “Ode to Jerusalem Artichoke” project is primarily realized in its desire to transfer the feeling of biophilia and ecocentrism to “other-than-human” inhabitants of the environment. This project is designed on the theoretical aspects found in writing of Clair Bishop, Donna Harrraway, Aldo Leoplold, T.J. Demos, John k. Grande and others that advocates the decolonization of our environment, an attempt to realize the transition from the relationship humans have to the plant world where human is the subject and the plant the object to the subject-subject relationship.

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.’
