Christine Ödlund

The Admiral’s Garden
Christine Ödlund’s work explores the borders of our knowledge of the world around us, connecting such themes as the chemical communication of plants, synaesthesia and theosophy. She works in a variety of media, including drawing, sculpture, video, watercolour and sound works.
Stress Call of the Stinging Nettle: When a plant reacts to a butterfly larvae feeding on its leaves, it releases chemical substances, or compounds. The characteristics of these compounds have been analyzed in collaboration with the Ecological Chemistry Research Group at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, and then transposed into amplitude and intensity of sinus tones, recorded at EMS (Electroacoustic Music in Sweden), Stockholm. Thus these beautiful graphic score and soundtrack by Swedish artist Christine Ödlund are direct transpositions of “the plant’s life, struggle and death”.

АЛЬВА БЕРНАДИН НАЗЫВАЕТ СЕБЯ АНТИПОРТРЕТИСТОМ, НАСТОЛЬКО РЕДКО ОН ФОТОГРАФИРУЕТ ЧЕЛОВЕЧЕСКИЕ ЛИЦА. ИЗЛЮБЛЕННОЙ ЕГО ТЕМОЙ ЯВЛЯЮТСЯ ЗЕРКАЛА, ОТРАЖАЮЩИЕ ЧАСТИ ЖЕНСКОГО ТЕЛА.

Butterfly Face
La sua è un’arte surrealista che si mantiene in bilico tra il grottesco e l’erotico; molti potrebbero considerarla repugnante. Spesso ha idee folli, molto più spesso ha idee fortemente e profondamente folli.

Альва Бернадин называет себя антипортретистом, настолько редко он фотографирует человеческие лица. Излюбленной его темой являются зеркала, отражающие части женского тела.

bye bye butterfly
«ByeBye Butterfly(1965)8’00 “は、サンフランシスコテープミュージックセンターで作成された2チャンネルのテープコンポジションです。2つのヒューレットパッカードオシレーター、2つのラインアンプをカスケード接続、ターンテーブルとレコード、2つのテープレコーダーを遅延で使用します。 作曲家は機器を配置し、発振器を調整し、リアルタイムで作曲を演奏しました。「19世紀の音楽だけでなく、その時代の礼儀正しい道徳体系とそれに付随するものにも別れを告げます。 女性の性の制度化された抑圧。 タイトルは、当時スタジオで手元にあり、進行中の作曲ミックスに自発的に組み込まれた、ジャコモ・プッチーニのオペラディスク「蝶々夫人」に言及しています。」-PO»トランスペアレントテープミュージックフェスティバル、サンフランシスコ

Phantasm
file festival

To explore a fantasy world experienced sometime and somewhere in our memory. Phantasm is an interactive installation in which participants light up in a small dreamlike world in space. As you take hold of a glowing sphere that releases a pale light, the area lights up in pale blue light, and white butterflies appear from nowhere as a soft piano melody flows. Butterflies fly slowly and gloriously, gathering toward the sphere, and chase you as you move the sphere. The sphere is the key to the real world and fantasy. Participants can experience the nostalgia of playing with butterflies by moving around or holding the sphere in the air. Beautiful white butterflies draw wing strokes in the air as if they are symbols of a fantasy world; they delicately lead you into their world. If you cover the sphere with your hands to shut out the light, the butterflies gradually disappear, leaving silence and lingering light, bringing you back to reality. You will find yourself perplexed as if it were a fleeting dream. Technical statement of “Phantasm” LEDs are used as the light source for the sphere which is the interface, so that the sphere glows in uniformity and allows the interaction of participants hiding the light or releasing the light with their hands. Light, color tone, and the position of the sphere are monitored with a sensor camera placed on the ceiling, and by connecting with real time CG, the butterfly movements (appearance, disappearance, gathering, and chasing) become possible.
