Circuit Ouvert
File Festival
Circuit Ouvert est une installation sonore de Christoph Haag, Martin Rumori, Franziska Windisch et Ludwig Zeller. L’équipe a créé le projet pendant ses études à l’Académie des arts médiatiques de Cologne. Le circuit ouvert consiste en un labyrinthe de pistes de cuivre ouvertes qui couvrent le sol et les murs de l’espace d’installation. Ces pistes transportent les signaux électriques d’un référentiel sonore multicanal qui deviennent audibles lorsque des haut-parleurs sans fil sont placés sur le cuivre. Le son émis par les haut-parleurs change en fonction de la façon dont ils sont déplacés.

Open circuit is a sound installation by Christoph Haag, Martin Rumori, Franziska Windisch and Ludwig Zeller. The team created the project while studying at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne. Open circuit consists of a labyrinth of open copper trails that cover the floor and walls of the installation space. These trails carry the electrical signals of a multichannel sound repository which become audible when wireless speakers are placed on the copper. The sound emitted by the speakers alters depending on how they are moved.

A R R A Y

A R R A Y – это аудиовизуальная платформа для перформативных экспериментов, основанная на матрице из шести светодиодов, обращенных к шести фотодатчикам, подключенным к векторным генераторам. Датчики измеряют яркость и частоту мигающих огней и соответственно изменяют значения осцилляторов. Частота световых импульсов и расстояние между диодами и датчиками модулируются во время работы, что приводит к непредсказуемым шумовым характеристикам. Непрерывный поток звука считывается в массивы в чистых данных и преобразуется в меняющийся слой макро-колебательных движений.

Park Lage
In the installation, an 11m x 15m x 25m orange inflatable that completely covered the historic courtyard, the viewer accesses the interior of the work and observes how the previously known space, or not, was reconfigured by a monochromatic plastic cover, through which only the shapes of a reality that has just become a work are drawn. This work makes visible a space that was previously just the place where things live. A work that the wind, the sun, the rain and the passing of people keeps alive, breathing.

“DIFFERENT DIMENSION”

“Various winds are accumulated, pulled out, fluttered, rotated … Repeated over and over again. The invisible wind has the same expression for one second. Isn’t it possible to “see” with a dress that can’t be seen? It is a challenge to design your own style through dress making. ” yoshio kubo

Lebendige Malerei
Ich male gerade. Ich möchte eine Szene zeichnen, die in Bewegung bleibt. Ich habe mit “ALIVE PAINTING” angefangen, mit Liquidität eine sich ständig verändernde Figur zu zeichnen. In “ALIVE PAINTING” zeichnen wir Bilder, indem wir mit Materialien mit unterschiedlichen Eigenschaften miteinander reagieren. Auf diese Weise versuche ich, die ästhetischen Freuden hervorzuheben, die durch den Fluss und die Farbe der Elemente und den rohen Fluss entstehen. Zusätzlich zu den chemischen Eigenschaften des Materials treten durch äußere Faktoren wie Wind, Schwerkraft und Vibration unerwartete Reaktionen auf, so dass die nicht reproduzierbare Szenerie langsam wieder erscheint und das Erlebnis selbst mit dem Betrachter geteilt wird.

TEAMLAB

Massaloze wolken tussen beeldhouwkunst en leven
Het beeldhouwwerk, een gigantische witte massa, zweeft tussen de vloer en het plafond binnen de grenzen van de ruimte, een onbepaalde vorm die verandert, alsof het het concept van massa overstijgt. De grens tussen deze zwevende sculptuur, de ruimte en het lichaam van de toeschouwer is dubbelzinnig en mensen kunnen hun lichaam onderdompelen in deze sculptuur. Zelfs wanneer mensen door het beeld duwen en het breken, herstelt het zich vanzelf als een levend wezen. Maar, net als bij levende wezens, wanneer het beeldhouwwerk verder wordt vernietigd dan het kan repareren, kan het zichzelf niet herstellen en stort het in. Zelfs als mensen dit zwevende beeld proberen te verplaatsen of in de lucht te duwen, kunnen ze dat niet. Als ze de wind aanwakkeren, zal de wolk breken. We komen tot het besef dat een simpele handeling va  n mensen dit beeld niet kan verplaatsen.

MAIKO TAKEDA

De creaties van Maiko Takeda lijken surrealistische wezens uit een fantastische droomwereld. De hoofddeksels van haar nieuwste creatie, ‘Atmospheric Reentry’, zijn opwindend anders, delicaat en futuristisch.

Kraft einer #Oberfläche / Testmuster
Die Installation für dieses Stück besteht aus einem Laser, einem Spiegel und einem Motor. Zwei identische Installationen sind vertikal symmetrisch aufgebaut. Die Arbeit nutzt die Natur des Spiegels zwischen den beiden Installationen (wobei die rechte und die linke Seite sich gegenseitig reflektieren). Jede Installation operiert auf der gleichen Zeitachse und verhält sich gleich und erinnert an eine substanzlose Spiegelfläche. Das in Richtung des feststehenden Spiegels emittierte Bild unterstreicht die verworrene Qualität des substanzlosen Raums, in dem Spiegel einen Kreislauf von Multiplikation und Verschwinden erzeugen und sich sein Verhalten je nach Position des Betrachters ändert.

Doug Aitken

Sonic Mountain
As a unique site-specific commission for the Donum Estate, Los Angeles-based artist Doug Aitken has created the ethereal work Sonic Mountain (Sonoma), three concentric circles of suspended stainless-steel pipes whose differing lengths form a wave at their base, mirroring the free Euler-Bernoulli shape that describes the chime’s frequency. Installed in the eucalyptus grove, measuring forty-five feet in diameter and twice human height, and comprising 365 chimes — one for each day of the year — Sonic Mountain (Sonoma) works with one of Donum’s most persistent elements, the Carneros breeze that cools the grapes and creates a temperate zone for growing Pinot Noir. Each day, the warm wind begins its soft whisper, rustling through the vines and trees, building in strength through the day until mid-afternoon, and then gradually diminishing in force. Known to have been used since at least the ancient Roman period in Europe and the second century in India and China, wind chimes create chance, inharmonic music. At Donum, Aitken has teamed up with his friend the composer Terry Riley to compose chords in the chimes to be played by the wind , depending on how it blows, so the lyrical work sounds throughout the estate, demonstrating the artist’s practice of making installations that synthesize many media and are never constrained by tradition.

From the beginning, I never wanted to work with just Bill Viola-style hidden projectors projecting on to screens. I wanted to work with architecture and with corners and doorways and windows. A lot of Robert Morris’ writing was important to me – still is. He talks about presence, about presence in the work of art and about being present, and that’s been really influential for me. — Diana Thater

SLOW HOUSE

To either side of the “picture window” are two antenna-like stacks: the chimney is to the right, the video apparatus to the left. At the summit of the left stack sits a live video camera directed at the water view and feeding the monitor in front of the picture window. The electronic view is operable; the camera can pan or zoom by remote control. When recorded, the view may be deferred— day played back at night, fair weather played back in foul. The composite view formed by the screen in front of the picture window is always out of register, collapsing the opposition between the authentic and mediated.

Sonia Falcone

Windows of the Soul
In de installatie Windows of the Soul gebruikte Sonia Falcone haar spiritualiteit als centraal thema en presenteerde ze dit op de XVII Bienal de Arte de Santa Cruz de la Sierra, in 2010. De video-installatie was gemaakt van dunne, verticale blokken die rond zes meter en ongelijk uitgelijnd. Op de blokken projecteerde ze video gemaakt van korte en kleurrijke componenten die elk een deel van haar persoonlijke leven vertegenwoordigden. Ze mengde kunstmatige en natuurlijke landschappen om de eenheid en het belang van beide in het menselijk bestaan ​​te benadrukken, en de boodschap die ze wilde overbrengen is dat leven mooi is, vanaf het moment van conceptie door alles wat de mens doet en voelt in zijn leven. Haar missie was om hoop te sturen en aan te geven dat er een belofte is voor een betere toekomst.

PEEPING TOM

32 rue vandenbranden
The script of physical actions is inspired by the Japanese film A ballad de Naraiama (1983), by Shohei Imamura, the one with tearing images, like that of the son carrying his mother on his back, embraced by the wind, climbing the mountain to put her on the summit until death, as the local tradition says that every septuagenarian must have an equal destiny. In the same village in the late 19th century, parents used to sell babies to survive. These material and spiritual miseries do not bring literals to the stage. Rather, they are essentials that make the show a fabulous visual poem written in and with the body and the scenic space. The song is also celebrated at the height, with moments such as Stravinski’s The Bird of Fire suite, and the song Fline on you crazy diamond, by the band Pink Floyd.

WINDVOGEL are energy generating kites which create up to 100 kW and can supply about 200 households with green energy. Floating in the air, the smart kites move around and are connected with a cable to a ground station. This push and pull of the cable transforms into electricity, like the dynamo of a bicycle.

KEITH SONNIER

キース·ソニア
Keith Sonnier ist besonders durch seine Lichtinstallationen international bekannt geworden. Bereits in den 1960er Jahren entdeckte er künstliches Licht als bildnerisches Material und experimentierte mit verschiedenen Lichtquellen wie Schwarzlicht und farbigem Neon, einem Material mit vielfältigen Assoziationen zur Werbe- und Alltagsästhetik. Sonnier, der in New York lebt und arbeitet, versteht sich nicht als Lichtkünstler sondern als Bildhauer. Sein Beitrag zur Überwindung des traditionellen Skulpturenbegriffs durch das Medium Licht war prägend für die Kunst der Zeit nach 1960 bis heute. Er wurde zum Wegbereiter einer ‘neuen Skulptur’.

Die Wassermatrix (Matrice liquide 3D, auf Französisch) ist eine Robotermaschine, die in Echtzeit Wasserskulpturen erstellt und eine kontinuierliche Entwicklung von Formen und Bildern zum Leben erweckt. Diese Installation schafft vergängliche Skulpturen, die der Betrachter in ständiger Beobachtung und Überraschung festhält, fast eine Metapher des berühmten Flusses Heraklit, in dem „alles fließt, alles sich ändert, nichts übrig bleibt. Tore. Die Idee der 3D-Flüssigmatrix wurde 2001 bei einem Besuch in Lille, der Kulturhauptstadt Europas, geboren, wo Shiro Takatani einen Roboterbrunnenschreiber projizierte, der seine Botschaften übermitteln sollte, indem er eine Reihe flüssiger Buchstaben auf den Teich fallen ließ. Leider existierte die Technologie noch nicht und er musste warten, um einen zuverlässigen technischen Partner mit umfassender Erfahrung im Bau digitaler Wasservorhänge als Lumiartecnia Internacional zu finden. Zwei renommierte Digitalkünstler haben während der Roboterkunstausstellung die Kunstwerke für die Wassermatrix entwickelt: Shiro Takatani und Christian Partos. Shiro Takatanis Kunstwerk schafft eine räumliche Erfahrung, die mehrere Schichten paralleler Tröpfchen erzeugt, die auf magische Weise in der Luft zu schweben scheinen, und für Momente, in denen sie sich aus dem Teich erheben und wieder fallen, in sich unmöglich entwickelnden Kreationen, die der Schwerkraft zu trotzen scheinen. Christian Partos Kunstwerk schafft Sequenzen von Wasserskulpturen, die die Fähigkeit der Wassermatrix zeigen, sofort vergängliche Wasserformen zu erzeugen, die im Teich unten verschwinden, um eine neue zu gebären, und auf diese Weise ein konstant fließendes Video von 3D-Skulpturen zu erstellen, als ob sie es wären waren Fotogramme aus einem Film.

In dieser funkelnden Installation mit dem Titel Volume nahm der Künstler Leo Villareal eine Handvoll funkelnder Sterne und brachte sie auf die Erde. Das zylinderförmige Teil hing an der Decke und enthielt mehr als 20.000 LED-Leuchten aus reflektierendem, hochglanzpoliertem Edelstahl, die einen dreidimensionalen Raum schufen, in dem Licht lebendig werden konnte. Die Beleuchtungsmuster, gesteuert durch Villareals Software-Code-Design, Bewegen Sie sich in verschiedenen Geschwindigkeiten, Ein- und Ausschaltzyklen und Wellen von Helligkeit und Dunkelheit. Einem Rezensenten zufolge ist „das Stück ein schillerndes Tongedicht, das den Betrachter in einen tiefen, abstrakten Raum zieht, während es die zeitliche und visuelle Wahrnehmung verzerrt.“ Villareal ist kein Anfänger, wenn es um erstaunliche Lichtskulpturen geht. Schauen Sie sich diesen 200 Fuß langen Lichtshow-Tunnel an, den er auf dem Concourse-Gehweg der Ost- und Westgebäude in der National Gallery of Art installiert hat. Der Raum zwischen Villareals Installationen und seinem Publikum ist ein wichtiger Faktor, da die Zuschauer mit den Lichtern verflochten sind, die ringsum pulsieren.

Dalston House
Located in Hackney, Dalston House by Leandro Erlich is a temporary installation comprising a reconstructed house facade lying face-up and a mirror positioned over it at a 45-degree angle. As a person walks over the surface of the house, the mirror reflects their image and creates the illusion that they are walking up the walls. Similarly, visitors can make it look like they are balancing over the cornices or dangling from the windows.

Loom zeigt abstrakte Animationen, die mit Daten von Google Trends in Echtzeit entwickelt wurden. Beliebte Abfragen werden vorübergehend als überlagerter Text angezeigt, bevor sie sich in eine rauchige Abstraktion auflösen. Diese Begriffe werden mit einer zufälligen Lyrik angegangen – jedes Wort erscheint und verschwindet in einer Spur der Sättigung. Die Farben in der Animation werden durch die Häufigkeit eines bestimmten Themas bestimmt. Je viraler die Suche online ist, desto wärmer werden die Töne. Ohne Schlagzeilen, grafische Bilder und Statistiken inspiriert jede Phrase eine kontemplative Erfahrung, eine Gelegenheit für den Betrachter, darüber nachzudenken, was zu einem bestimmten Zeitpunkt durch das kollektive Bewusstsein strömt. Loom verwebt ein soziales Gefüge, das das Transzendentale mit dem Banalen vermischt, um den Geist unserer Zeit in generativer Bewegung darzustellen.

RENDER GHOST ist eine kombinierte immersive Theaterarbeit aus virtueller Realität, die vom New Media Art Team NAXS CORP erstellt wurde. Die sechs teilnehmenden Zuschauer werden weiße, staubfreie Kleidung anziehen, und das Servicepersonal wird dabei helfen, Virtual-Reality-Ausrüstung zu tragen und langsam das weiße aufblasbare Zelt zu betreten. Angeführt von der virtuellen Szene werden sie um den Spiralturm herumgehen, um eine physische zu starten Science-Fiction-Zeremonie. Wenn der Betrachter auf die Spitze des Turms tritt, entfernt er seine Virtual-Reality-Ausrüstung und taucht in eine surreale Landschaft ein, die aus Lichtern, Lasern, Rauch, Geräuschen, schwebenden Partikeln und Wind besteht. Allmählich geriet er in Trance und Blitz Nebel.

Fabrice le Nezet

Elasticity
With an urge to constantly explore the intersection between architecture, fashion, and product design, london-based artist Fabrice le Nezet has created ‘Elasticity.’ the work materializes the idea of tension by making the notion of weight and stretch palpable through the use of four massive and abstract metal structures. These components run perpendicularly across the long edges of rectangular voids in the ceiling. by presenting this normal condition, several of the wires bend to support large prisms of concrete that provide a feeling of force and motion. as they drop down to occupy spaces below, movement is emphasized by their strategic orientation below clerestory windows shining light onto the forms. As observers move around the constructs, a contrast is created between the real properties of the materials and the way they are perceived.

Ronald van der Meijs

Odoshi Cloud Sequence
A symbiosis between nature and culture is created against the backdrop of the Japanese garden in the pond of the Amstelpark. This artwork explores new possibilities to generate sound and composition that are controlled by slow, unpredictable and unexpected elements of nature which are highly respected in Japanese culture. The diversity of natural sounds gives the work an almost meditative character, while the dependance on natural factors evoke a tension between longing and acceptance. This sound installation engages, as a natural sequencer, in a dialogue with the water, sun wind and clouds. It refers to Japanese garden culture by using the principle of the Japanese bamboo water tumbler.

Encapsulated environmental system: Paludarium YASUTOSHI
This machine is fully equipped with a mist machine as if wrapping plants in a fog from both sides and drip feed-water system which can be activated depending on the situation in order to maintain the condition of a plant and control inside temperature and humidity. Also the cylindrical shape can fully capture the natural light by 365°angles from glasses, and it can correspond to plant growth by having the series’ largest scale of height. Fans on the ceiling play a role of wind, and a plant can listen music from the waterproofed speakers. The machine takes in essential elements – rain, wind, light and sound – by artificial means and completes a small world where its ecological cycle is condensed. It enables us to admire the beauty of the plants by not being affected by external environment.

Bigert & Bergström

Scenario Scenery
Scenario/Scenery is a performative art installation in which the sculptural parts both act and serve as scenery. The work is inspired by the early theatre weather machines, which stood in the wings and were used to create sound effects of rain, wind and thunder. In Scenario/Scenery, these machines have mutated and been fitted with modern solar panels, which means that the energy that powers them is generated by the machines themselves. The work is designed as a theatrical stage where wind, rain, lightning and thunder machines together perform an act controlled by the rig of halogen lamps suspended above.

Vincent Leroy

Molinoptere
The distinguishing feature of the Lanzarote Island, one of the Canary Islands, is its old windmills, or molinos. The island has limited natural sources of energy — it has no running streams and no woodland. What it does have, however, is ample wind, and for centuries Lanzarote has used wind power both to grind grain and to pump water. The island still has several remaining mills, but many of them are now in ruins. To give a second life to these abandoned structures, French artist Vincent Leroy develops a concept project titled “Molinoptere” that proposes to turn them into both art objects and wind turbines.

Herman Kolgen

Eotone
With EOTONE, Kolgen and Letellier reflect on distance and weather, by staging something intangible yet powerful: the wind. Four sound and sculptural diffusers, containing elements of both the weather vane and the fog horn, make up this monumental installation that renders in movement and sound the direction and force of the wind blowing simultaneously on two continents: in Montreal and Quebec City on one side of the Atlantic, in Rennes and Nantes on the other. The wind data recorded in each city is transmitted live to the diffusers, controlling the orientation of each of the structures and orchestrating the combined chords that make up the harmonic whole perceived at the heart of the installation. By transforming weather data into sound, EOTONE offers a subtle artistic vision of the Internet of objects.

Charles Sowers

Wave wall
A wall of 122 wind-activated pendulums are each magnetically coupled with its neighbors so that the whole wall moves as a slowly undulating surface similar to a large piece of fabric rippling in the wind. In winds greater than 15 knots, the wall’s coherent wave-like movement becomes more chaotic as the pendulums break their mutual magnetic coupling. The pendulums can also be manually activated.

 

Quayola

Remains Series
Video is one of several ways Quayola explores his relationship with the world—and he has a mesmerizing way of undercutting reality while celebrating it. During Miami Art Week, Quayola premiered “Promenade,” a 4K drone-shot film of impeccable beauty. Commissioned by Audemars Piguet, the work winds through and above the forests of the Vallée de Joux, Switzerland near the brand’s historic watchmaking facility. In waves of interconnected footage, it translates documentation of the landscapes into digital art drawn from various technologies. It succeeds in a deep dissection of form.

Stefan Tiefengraber

your unerasable text
“your unerasable text” is an interactive installation, dealing with the topics of data storage and elimination of data. The installation can be placed in an exhibition, but ideally it’s exhibited in a public space window, where it can be used by people passing by 24h a day. The participant is asked to send a textmessage to the number written on a sign next to the installation. “send your unerasable textmessage to +43 664 1788374”. The receiver mobile transfers it to a computer, which is layouting the message automatically. Then it is printed on to a DIN A6 paper, which is falling directly on to a papershredder. There the message remains readable for a few moments and gets destroyed then. The shredded paper forms a visible heap on the floor, which reminds of a generative graphic.

The look elsewhere
The work, which in this video version is coupled with uncanny virtual landscapes, blurs the boundaries between the real and the simulated, while expanding the artwork into the virtual via the VR-headset wearing dancers. The artwork captures the entangled play between the participants, but also provides the viewer with a new perspective—opening a window onto the virtual dimension of the performance. The borders keep on fading, from the point where technology begins and physicality ends.

Peppercorn

Upload not complete
The work magnifies the process of virtual and real fusion, which is the process of uploading human consciousness to digital space. When the visual perception has been lost, can people still recognize the body through the touch and sound of wind, sound and vibration everywhere? Experiencers use non-visual senses, experience media art, and cooperate with the Taiwanese Non-Visual Aesthetic Education Association to create a digital space where the computer can fully understand the location of the experiencer in the space, allowing the experiencer to listen, move, touch objects, feel the vibration and come to know the space.

Fog Sound Environment
Fog Sound Environment is a site specific installation originally conceived for the foreland of DordtYart located nearby the junction of the three rivers that traverse Dordrecht. In this experiential artwork real fog is being created by pushing water under very high pressure through hundreds of nozzles. The fog system consists of independent sections that surround the foreland. The timing and distribution of the fog is part of a composition system that incorporates the on-site wind direction in real-time. The fog is dispersed across the, by high trees and water enclosed, grassy terrain . The behavior of the fog is under direct influence of the local weather; sun, rain and wind all have their influence on the behavior of the fog and experience of the work.

IsoScope

IsoScope is a kinetic audiovisual outdoor installation, a sensorial experience in which the audience wanders through rotating lights and an ever-changing sonic cloud. This new work by Dutch artist Joris Strijbos consists of multiple robotic wind objects interacting with each other and with their surroundings. Strijbos aimed at creating a human-constructed phenomenon, an abstract entity which, like most natural phenomena, can only be experienced in certain weather conditions. IsoScope can be seen as a proposition for a new kind of machinic and artificial lifeform. IsoScope was commissioned by Sonic Acts for the second Dark Ecology Journey (2015) and realised in collaboration with Jeroen Molenaar, Daan Johan and Erfan Abdi.

Algae Window
Algae window is an arrangement of glass spheres mounted in a wall. Directly behind the wall and the spheres is a window; vivid, miniature, inverted views of the scene outside the gallery thus appear in and inhabit each sphere. The composition of the work closely resembles the structure of one type of the single-celled algae known as diatoms, which remove large amounts of carbon from the atmosphere.

TUNDRA

My Whale
There is an impressive space at the front of the ship, with panoramic windshield and hexagonal pattern on the vaulted ceiling, remained from the 80-s, the time, when “Brusov” was constructed in Austria. Standing there gives you the feeling of floating through the reflections of the Krymsky bridge lights on the river, inside a giant whale head. Looking through its eyes, listening to its songs that flow across the brain made of hexagonal cells by the wires hanging down here and there.
With some light and sound we brought this whale to life.
Each piece of the projection onto the cells was cloned from the previous one with a random changes. So each cell behaved differently, pulsating to the rythm of the whale songs. To interract with the whale the visitor could place the phone screen above the black box in the center of the room.

martyrs (earth, air, fire, water)

“As the work opens, four individuals are shown in stasis, a pause from their suffering. Gradually there is movement in each scene as an element of nature begins to disturb their stillness. Flames rain down, winds begin to lash, water cascades, and earth flies up. As the elements rage, each martyr’s resolve remains unchanged. In their most violent assault, the elements represent the darkest hour of the martyr’s passage through death into the light.”

Tornado
A 10-foot tall vortex is formed by air blowers and an ultrasonic fog machine inside a sculpture installed in the atrium adjacent to the Winter Garden. The vortex continually changed shape in response to the surrounding air currents.These fluctuations gave the vortex an erratic and life-like appearance. Viewers were encouraged to alter the shape of the vortex with their hands. The calm, central core of the vortex is clearly evident.
Kahn’s interactive scientific projects leave little doubt about his command of meteorological processes. Through his immense technical ability, he demonstrates the versatility of turbulent systems, such as the vortices of wind and water. He employs diverse mechanical, pneumatic and electrical technologies to design, build and refine his installations. This is how he constructs dazzlingly complex but comprehensible images of nature that respond to viewers, conform to architectural structures, and reveal environmental conditions.

Halo
99 robotic mirrors continuously move throughout the day to follow the sun like sunflowers. These mirrors, arrayed across two 5 meter tall towers and one 15 meter long track, each emit a beam of sunlight into a cloud of water mist. The beams are computationally aligned so that together they draw a bright circle in the air. Dependent entirely on the presence of the sun for its completion, the work explores the possibilities and limitations of technology to capture what is out of reach, to harness nature and bring the sun down to earth. Collaborating with the natural fluctuations in the climate, Halo appears only for moments when the wind, sun, water, and technology coincide, creating a form which exists between the material and immaterial.

Vertical Studies: Acoustic Shadows and Boundary Reflections; Water Tower Sint Jansklooster In their new collaborative work, Vertical Studies: Acoustic Shadows and Boundary Reflections, Signe Lidén and Espen Sommer invite participants on a journey to a 46-metre-high abandoned water tower in Sint Jansklooster. The tower has been re-imagined as a vertical field-lab where Lidén and Sommer discuss their ongoing research into connections between sound, history, wind and weather. To this end they have constructed a range of special instruments to record and playback sounds in the vertical dimension. The participants on this journey will experience live outdoor vertical studies and a vertical soundscape shaped by Eide and Lidén that ascends the tower’s spiral staircase.

Journey is an interactive parable, an anonymous online adventure to experience a person’s life passage and their intersections with other’s. You wake alone and surrounded by miles of burning, sprawling desert, and soon discover the looming mountaintop which is your goal. Faced with rolling sand dunes, age-old ruins, caves and howling winds, your passage will not be an easy one. The goal is to get to the mountaintop, but the experience is discovering who you are, what this place is, and what is your purpose.

The prototype was printed nearly autonomously in 2019 within a 30-hour construction window. “Our 3D print technology uses a recyclable biopolymer composite which outperformed concrete in NASA’s strength, durability, and crush testing. ASTM lab tested and certified to be two to three times stronger than concrete in compression, our space-grade material is also five times more durable than concrete in freeze-thaw conditions.” Ai-Spacefactory
