AARHUS ARTSPACE – DIALOG

D. 28 juli udstillede vi værket DIALOG i Galleri Grundstof på Vestergade. Det var i forbindelse med Aarhus Artspace, at vi var blevet inviteret til at overtage gallariet for en enkelt dag. I den forbindelse fremviste vi en lang række forskellige værker, vi havde lavet; fælles, såvel som soloprojekter. Fælles for dem alle var udgangspunktet i vores projekt, kaldet DIALOG (tjek værksbeskrivelse på Dialog siden). Dog varierede værkerne fra performance, henover koncerter og tog sågar form som flere installationer. Se billeder taget på dagen af Mikkel Elming.

TŌ – Archive 01 – Entry

To af Det Digitale Atelier’s kunstnere, Laurits og Tobias, er på studieophold i Japan henover de næste fem måneder. I den forbindelse vil Laurits skabe værket “Tō”, bestående af korte videoværker, der løbende vil komme op på hjemmesiden. Tō er et arkivværk, der skal dokumentere Laurits’ rejse i Japan, med særligt fokus på Tokyo. Værket dækker over flere tematikker – blandt andet Tokyo’s gentagelser, mønstre og farver der skaber et unikt bybillede.

Manifested Algorithms

Fritjof from the atelier has recently finished his bachelor’s thesis on algorithmic entities. Based off the notions presented in our Growth series of biological synthesizers, the paper explores the different domains of agency present in generative systems, both biological and technological.
As such it builds upon the themes we explore in most of our collaborative works. Coining the term manifested algorithms, the paper also serves to describe a perspective on most of the pieces we have developed over the past year.

The paper is freely available to read here, have a look!

Growth-mkII at Glyptoteket

This October we exhibited our installation Growth-mkII for Slow night at Glyptoteket, curated by G((o))ng Tomorrow. G((o))ng is a series of events hosted by SNYK, an organisation promoting sound art and experimental music. The theme of this night was ‘Forfald’, decay, which was approached in a number of different ways by the participating artists and speakers.

Growth-mkII was presented as an investigation of the creation that inevitably results from the decaying of organic matter. The mold can be seen as the transition of material from one thing to another, interpreted by us as captured in sound.

The piece was placed in Vinterhaven, a large indoor garden in the Glyptotek Musem, a museum which also hosts a large collection of archaeological finds. The traditions tied to this place, and the format of the night formed something that we feel very privileged to have participated in.

As always the growth of the mold surprised us, this time much more diverse than we have seen before. Penicillin, black mold, yeast and bacterial growths were all represented.

– Growth-mkII will be exhibited again on the 11th, for the first time in Aarhus. The exhibition presents installations by the residents of Institut for (x), the community where our atelier is located. The exhibition will run from the 11th until the 16th, and Growth-mkII can be viewed at all stages of its growth in this time-span. Stop by A-huset at Insitut for (x) in midtown and take a look!
