The installation establishes a habitat in a reverse loop of liquids, sound and light. The members of the IZLAND tandem mix chemical solutions of different densities with paints and dust, then submerge them into water, and solve them with alcohols; next, the pouring in an aquarium is projected onto a spatial chamber. jesusonecstasy captures the lighting output and sends it back into the space by means of a digital sound synthesizer. In a completed loop, sound frequencies cause vibration of the liquids, while particular substances within the system define wave lengths and velocity of the journey of frequencies. The whole system is responsive on changes in its surroundings, and it also reacts on the presence of the viewers. Visitors enter the inner space of the installation, which is defined by a cylindrical projection screen. In the Soundlighter installation we also face the issue of speed of the supposedly real time, which requires microseconds to travel all the way from the shooting camera to the computer interface: real time is actually not real; rather, it always moves away …
About the artists:
IZLAND (Gašper Milkovič-Biloslav and Marko Vivoda) develop new approaches to VJing with live mixing of different liquids into organic patterns at the crossroads of analogue technologies. Among other things, they produce visual images for concerts of the bands Silence and Random Logic.
jesusonecstasy (Mitja Cerkvenik) is a producer of analogue electronic music; he makes electronic instruments and effects, and creates sound for theatre productions and short films.
