Martin Bricelj Baraga: Moonolith
We’ve successfully concluded the year with one of our biggest art productions so far – the Moonolith. The installation was visited by over 10000 people during December and hosted more than 20 workshops and talks in the Moonolith Lab.
The Moonolith is now available for booking across Europe.
Moonolith is an interactive monument for public space, reflecting the Moon and star constellations on its surface. It is a monument devoted to the urban dweller. An ode to black matter, to the void, the space in between, time and its passing.
Moonolith is a dark reflection of the sky. With subtle sounds and lights it visualizes Moon phases, star constellations and the people that surround it.
We’re also excited to announce that this year’s SHAPE artist roster has been revealed. This year MoTA represents an eclectic mix of SHAPE artists with exciting audiovisual projects (and upcoming new releases!):

BARAGA & BENDER: NEUNUNDNEUNZIG (99)
After the successful premiere at the NEMO Biennale in Paris in October 2015, the large-scale sonic installation / immersive environment NEUNUNDNEUNZIG (99) by Martin Bricelj Baraga and Olaf Bender is now available for festival and art show bookings!
Irena Tomažin (SI): Faces of Voices. Noise
The awarded Slovenian vocalist and performer Irena Tomažin premieres her first audiovisual installation inspired by the question, “What would a portrait of a certain voice look like?”
A multi channel video installation and sound composition explores the relation between faces and voices / noises. The portraits are a visual mirror of voices that fill our minds, whisper or scream at us, but sometimes they sound like they don’t belong to any face or vice- versa. And then sometimes a face is just what remains of a sound expression. Voices bring us faces of sighs, murmurs, sucking, jibbering, being quiet, bubbling, demanding, resonating. They are spaces of our inner selves leaking into the outside world. We are naked in voice.
“Voice draws out a new face for me, sculpts a new body.”
