 TEKS’ 10 Years Anniversary: Blæst Thursday October 25 Pierre Bastien [NL]: nail violin, trumpet and video, Bruno Ferro Xavier Da Silva [NL] : bass, Steve Argüelles [UK]: drums. For this new project I did not favor a screwdriver in the first place, like I used to when making pure mechanical music. I did not search for more electro-motors or musical instruments or Meccano spare parts. This time I have selected short moments taken from musical films of the past. Among the huge musical data bank available I…

Ralf Baecker / Irrational Computing

Irrational Computing (2011) IRRATIONAL COMPUTING investigates material, aethetics and potential of digital processes. The basic raw materials of our surrounding information technology are semiconductor crystals such as silicon, quartz or silicon carbide, which, thanks to today’s advanced microtechnology and extremely sophisticated procedures, are processed into transistors or integrated circuits (IC), with the materiality of modern microprocessors having long since ceased to be graspable. The extreme miniaturization and the black-box set-up elude visual interpretation. The Installations circuit runs counter to the developments in information technology, representing the…


Epiphyte Grove – Hylozoic series (2011 – 2012) The Hylozoic Ground experimental architecture series developed by architect Philip Beesley has been expanded and refined by researchers, engineers and designers from around the world. It is an immersive, interactive environment that moves and breathes around its viewers, creating an environment that can ‘feel’ and ‘care’. Next-generation artificial intelligence, synthetic biology, and interactive technology create an environment that is nearly alive. This new technology has, according to the London Times, “the power to be the dominant aesthetic of…


Jessica de Boer / Solid Void

Solid Void (2007) Ice, Water, Glass Container / 40 x 40 x 40 cm The resin burns in the torch, but the heat is transferred and no one knows where it will ever end. – Zhuang Zi Solid Void shows the carving of ice during a thermodynamic process. In a room at 20˚C hangs in mid-air a glass-cube container filled with water. The process starts when an octahedron of ice is placed in the glass container, fitting exactly and airtight. The scale of this system makes…


Øyvind Brandtsegg / Installation for a pedestrian bridge

Installation for a pedestrian bridge (2012) Co-produced by Meta.Morf / TEKS – Trondheim Elektroniske Kunstsenter. The installation is based on rhythm and sound generated by pedestrians passing the Shipyard Bridge (Flower Bridge, Trondheim). 8 contact speakers and 8 contact microphones are mounted to the underside of the bridge walkway.  Through exploring the rhythmic expression, the installation relates to development and negotiation of meaning in language. Rhythm patterns recorded from the audience walking across the bridge are recorded and used as source material for the development…


Wim Delvoye / Cloaca No 5

CLOACA N˚ 5 (2006) 2006 / 390 x 70 x 330 cm / Mixed Media Wim Delvoye is a Belgian neo-conceptual artist known for his inventive and often shocking projects. Much of his work is focused on the body. “Delvoye is involved in a way of making art that reorients our understanding of how beauty can be created.” Delvoye is perhaps best known for his digestive machine, “Cloaca”, which he unveiled at the Museum voor Hedendaagse Kunst, Antwerp, after eight years of consultation with experts in…
