Mariska de Groot - Nibiru - Planet of Crossing

Artist: Mariska de Groot
Title: Nibiru – Planet of Crossing
Year: 2016
Type: Installation / Performance

Co-presented at Mirage Festival, Lyon with the support of Creative Fund NL

No one ever discovered Nibiru – ‘Planet of crossing’- the ninth planet that passes our solar system ones in a 3000 years. During the performance De Groot intends to track the trace and shape of Nibiru with a simple, unstable human handmade apparatus made of scratch materials.Nibiru is an analogue and mechanical performative installation wherein simple rhythmical body movements activates a squeaky pendulum drawing machine, that on its turn creates complex mathematical images. Noises of friction are amplified and sound patterns are created by light sensitive speakers that scan the changing projected geometric line image.The patterns of light and sound refer often to the positions of the planets and provoke a desire for cosmic understanding of the organisation of space.

Robin Koek & Leon Lubberdink - Sound of Signals

Artists: Robin Koek & Leon Lubberdink
Title: Sound of Signals Vu
Year: 2012
Type: 6-channel interactive sound installation

Commissioned as part of ‘(Im)possible Worlds’ exhibition in NIMK, Amsterdam (former Netherlands Institute of Media Art)

Sound Of Signals is a six-channel interactive sound sculpture, in which the visitor becomes a part of a physical, sonic space of signals. The work speaks the language of communication technology, the speakers are autonomous entities in a polyphony of signals. The interactor forms a network with these entities through his behaviour.

In their latest collaborative project Koek and Lubberdink tap into virtual and undetected layers of modern communication signals between our mobile devices and the networks surrounding us. The installation allows visitors to experience the ubiquitous connections between us and these networks.

Tijs Ham & Pinar Temiz - In: still life

Artist: Tijs Ham & Pinar Temiz
Title: In: still life
Year: 2012
Type: Installation

Commissioned as part of FIBER Festival 2012

Covered in darkness, a biotechnological creature glows in space, broadcasting signals. Controlled by a pattern seeking, digital brain, fluids are rhythmically pumped through its transparent veins. In an ever evolving series of calls and responses, ‘_in:still life’ tries to obtain its own musical and visual language, guided by artificial creativity and expressed through its organic body. A sensory system scans its surroundings in search of other entities to interact with. Approach… and you will be the witness of an intricate private performance, a playful combination of dripping liquids with bioluminescent disturbances. Step away… and ‘_in:still life’ slips into a lucid dream state, contemplating its own existence by developing new patterns and modifying the old.
