SAND Festival, Kristiansand (NO)

At SAND Festival, Lawrence Malstaf holds a workshop for young artists, centred around the exploration of an “inflatable” – a bubble filled with air – and the relationship between the life like bubble, space and movement and physical interaction between object, audience and performer. The workshop is in collaboration with contemporary dancer Liv Hanne Haugen, known from Haugen Produksjoner, and electronica musician Per Martinsen.

SAND Festival invited Heine Avdal and Yukio Shinozaki to a talk entitled 'Scenography as co-actor' with Lawrence Malstaf, who is particularly known for his installations which examine advanced technology, movement, and space.

tele-present wind by David Bowen consists of a series of 42 x/y tilting mechanical devices connected to thin dried plant stalks installed in a gallery and a dried plant stalk connected to an accelerometer installed outdoors. The stalks in the gallery space move in real-time and in unison based on the movement of the wind outside.

Aernoudt Jacobs presents Heliophone, an installation which turns sunlight into sound. The installation follows the trajectory of the sun, catching the sunlight and focusing it, via a parabolic lens, onto one point. There, a rotating disk chops the light up into small fragments. A photo-acoustic cell further transforms the light fragments into sound, made audible by a large horn.

Cosmos - Project Daejeon 2016
26 July 2016
until 20 November 2016
Daejeon Museum of Art, South-Korea

The theme of Project Daejeon 2016 is COSMOS. The quest for the origins of life in the universe has inspired many artists. Project Daejeon 2016 has an ambition to break with the stereotypical view of the world and humanity and wishes to give a deeper insight into art and science through various collaborations.

Event Horizon: Dust particles are suspended in a light beam which is slowly scanning a dark room. Visitors can enter wearing a protective gas mask and witness the silent complexity of matter with millions of fragments forming a temporary micro universe. Remote sounds of human masses and activity fill the otherwise empty room.

In the darkness of a cinema space, the audience sits blindfolded. Behind each row of audience members is a row of children who in hushed voices describe a film only they can see. Accompanied by the soundtrack, the whispered descriptions are a fragile, fragmentary and at times struggling but courageous attempt by the children to make sense of what they see projected on the screen for the first time. Blind Cinema makes us aware of the possibilities and limits of language and our imagination.

Each night, the film is performed by a new group of children between 9 and 11 years old. In focusing on that which lies beyond the sense of sight, the attention oscillates between one’s own mind’s eye, guided by the whispering voice, and the shared physical space of the darkened cinema.

In collaboration with Artforum

The twigs in the SPACEJUNK installation by David Bowen point in unison in the direction of the oldest piece of human made space debris currently above the horizon. The debris being tracked are spent rocket bodies, parts from broken satellites and wayward tools launched in missions as far back as 1959. When the piece of debris being tracked drops below the installation’s horizon the twigs go to a rested downward pointing position an await the next debris to appear. The composition of the installation is continually changing as it tracks the oldest discarded objects orbiting the earth that enter its point of view.
