citizens

Experimental video

Year: 2015

Duration: 1’40“ // resp. 20“

In „citizens“ temporal and spatial structures around arriving people and playing children dissolve.
The look of the city can be guessed during a brief moment when the temporal axis is shifting and one catches a brief glimpse of one of the buildings.
It is hinted at the ambiguity that these people have to deal with. The scene is situated in a non-defined „city haven“.

ephemeral patterns

Premise:

In my artistic work I use physiological rhythms, brain activity measurements during non-tangible states of consciousness, as a basis for the movement of kinetic sculptures. Digital scan works revolve around the transformation of different kinds of movement produced by „natural“ rhythms like canvases moved by wind or sea waves.

During an artist-in-residence stay at Nida Art Colony, Lithuania (March, 2014) natural rhythms in the nearby National Park and in the village of Nida were discovered and used as artistic dataset.

“Ephemeral patterns” were collected, filtered and translated during the time in the colony. They were recorded during moments were perception was either heightened or in a contemplative mode.

Some of them can be sonified with electronic devices producing new patterns, referring to the difficulty or impossibility of measuring mental states or particular feelings and how we only approximate and are not able to depict phenomenons or the memory of them without modification.

Texts were collected from inhabitants and visitors, formed while being in the in-between-state of falling asleep, and meshed up to the sentence:

“In the name of the father this is the last thing you documented for the dogs.”

The collection of works is framed by a kinetic object, its form developed automatically.

In combination they can be seen as an ephemeral print of the location and the people residing there at the time of the stay.

This is a device to sonify patterns of movement, recorded during sunset at the beach near Nida Art Colony, during a windy day in Nida village and during a foggy day in the Parnidden Dunes.

The sound accompanying the video is a „foley“-recording, produced in the studio in order to recreate the cracking sound of ice,  echoing the melt down in the lagoon in Nida.
