As an artist, I need to rest

Sonia Cillari (IT)
Generative / Interactive performance
2. 9. Part of Frozen Music
3. 9. – 7. 9. 18:30 – 20:00

While lying still on the floor, the artist is exhaling through a cable connecting her left nostril and the center of a big screen. A digital creature called “feather” is entirely generated by the artist’s exhalation. Around 14,000 digital elements are created during the performance, and the digital feather can be brought into more than 6 different states of being, from addition to resistance patterns of life. Furthermore, the carbon dioxide level in the exhibition space is indicated by the feather, which might lose its initial range of colors heading towards black in case of higher concentrations in the surrounding air. One can hear the fatigued sound of the artist’s respiration over time.

Lux aeterna – incandescent wires

2. 9. – 7. 9.

The meditative glowing of the incandescent wire, pulsating, weak and reddish, before it reaches its maximum output giving off blazing bright light, uncertain as to whether it means the beginning or the end.
