“Hibernaculum : Vortex” by Carver Audain

tumblr_inline_nfx0mjch221qzow42.jpgRadius 58: Hibernaculum : Vortex (13:44) by Carver Audain.

Hibernaculum : Vortex was inspired by the Polar Vortex experienced in the Northern Hemisphere of the United States during the winter of 2014. Comprised almost entirely of amplitude modulation (AM) radio signals and recordings of the wind captured from a point of high altitude during Hurricane Sandy, the movement within the piece reflects the character of specific recent extreme weather events from the perspective of an individual located at roughly 40° 40’ 58” N 73° 57’ 53’ W.

“Internet Topography” by art of failure

Internet Topography 2011 by art of failure.

In Internet Topography, 50Hz audio signals are sent from the exhibition space to Tokyo, then returned within the installation space where we can listen to it. The transmission errors that occur during these streamings are analyzed and then considered as a potential and incomplete layout of the network topography. Similar to a landscape, this digital topography proves to be an unstable organization of patterns, shapes and outlines opening the way to multiple mental representations. This imaginary scope is made perceptible trough an immersive sound and light installation.
