CD predvajalniki, kovinska konstrukcija,
Artefakt: CD-ji in predvajalniki, serija: 12, 2013 

 

Archipelago je instalacija, sestavljena iz 55 prenosnih CD predvajalnikov, ki imajo svojo običajno vlogo predvajanja zvoka spremenjeno tako, da postanejo receptorji zvoka: ušesa torej. Elektromagnetni posnetki naprav se povratno predvajajo vanje, v njihove motorčke, ki se s tem začnejo nepredvidljivo vrteti, zvijati in tresti. Ti mehanični krči so zvočno okrepljeni skozi več manjših zvočnikov. Zapuščena zvočna tehnologija preteklosti, tehnologija, ki je omogočala samoto in izolacijo v še tako polnih prostorih, se pozunanji, vstopi vanje preko spremembe v mrežo elektronskih prisluškovalcev. Instalacija, ki vizualno spominja na model urbane, mestne krajine ali biološkega testnega laboratorija, gospodinjsko tehnologijo podvrže pritisku urbanega bivanja. Premierno je bila predstavljena na festivalu Sonica leta 2013.

Edicija ARCHIPELAGO (Islet) je serija 12 CD-jev in predvajalnikov. Vsak od njih vsebuje štiri skladbe, ki ponujajo različne zvočne izkušnje celote.

Museum of Transitory Art

MoTA –

Museum of Transitory Art

MoTA is a multidisciplinary platform dedicated to advancing the research, production and presentation of transitory, experimental, and live art forms.

MoTA is a museum without a permanent collection or a fixed space. Instead, its programs are realised in different locations and contexts in temporary physical and virtual spaces.

MoTA organizes and supports transitory art in the form of continuous events, exhibitions and educational programs both locally and internationally. As its name indicates, MoTA examines what a museum can be today and in the future.

MoTA is in constant search for the new, the uncertain, and the undefined.

MoTA works on several continuous programmes & projects. We run MoTA Point – a Space for Art & Ideas, we curate and produce the annual SONICA Festival, in addition to regular music programmes such as SONICA Series and SONICA Classics.

Within the years of running our residency programme, we’ve established T.R.I.B.E. – a network of residency spaces in the Balkans & Eastern Europe.

We’ve also initiated the research and archive platforms ArtistTalk.eu and Mediateque MoTA & Tomaž Brate. Our educational programmes serve a broader audience with ongoing workshops, talks, symposia, and internships.
