Sounding Out Spaces: Garden Ecologies (Tempe, AZ)


 

Sounding Out Spaces: Garden Ecologies (2017)
Lauren Hayes, Julian Stein

Installation: Sounding Out Spaces: Garden Ecologies is a collaboration between Lauren Hayes and Julian Stein, featuring several site-responsive installations that took place within the Clark Park Community Garden in Tempe, AZ on April 28, 2017.

more information: Sounding Out Spaces is a site-responsive sonic art project that explores ecosystemic relationships between people, sounds and spaces. The project, which was started by sound artist and Arizona State University professor Lauren Hayes in 2014, involves musical and technical approaches for artistically responding to and participating in a given site. These sites have included buildings and spaces that have not been designated as concert venues, as well as outdoor urban and rural settings, and they range from retired industrial structures, visually stimulating landscapes, architecture with unique acoustic properties, natural environments, or places of cultural or historical significance.

Time Lenses @ Corps dessinant - Musée des arts et métiers (Paris, France)


 

Time Lenses (2016)

Oana Suteu Khintirian, visual direction

Video Installation: Time Lenses (2016) is an installation of multiple displays and cameras that are carefully placed in a physical location to refract activity into a suite of rhythmically recomposed movements. Live video processing instruments will augment the space so that any activity, rehearsed or unrehearsed, quotidian or marked, will refract into a suite of projections, each revealing a different temporal or rhythmic aspect of the corporeal activity within the space. An activity in the space will appear on these life-size installations that act as temporal lenses or temporal mirrors.  As a set, these time lenses explode captured movements into constituent rhythms and display them "contrapuntally" on the image surfaces arrayed in the space.

Corps dessinant: À l’occasion de l’exposition "Machines à dessiner", le Musée des arts et métiers s’associe à l’institut ACTE (Unité Mixte de Recherche de l’Université Paris 1, Panthéon Sorbonne et du CNRS), à son programme « Exposer la Recherche » et à son équipe EsPAS (Esthétiques de la Performance et des Arts de la Scène) en invitant douze artistes contemporains à s’emparer du thème de l’exposition pour le transposer au monde de la performance artistique, les samedi 3 et dimanche 4 décembre 2016. Il est ainsi proposé aux visiteurs une lecture alternative, inédite et contemporaine du propos de l’exposition et des collections du Musée des arts et métiers, où corps et machines se confrontent, s’associent et se confondent le temps d’un week-end.

Time Lenses @ Embodied Encounters - Beall Center for Art + Technology (Irvine, CA)


  Time Lenses (2016)  Julian Stein, installation artist Todd Ingalls, video instruments Sha Xin Wei, concept   Video Installation:  Time Lenses (2016) is an installation of multiple displays and cameras that are carefully placed in a physical location to refract activity into a suite of rhythmically recomposed movements. Live video processing instruments will augment the space so that any activity, rehearsed or unrehearsed, quotidian or marked, will refract into a suite of projections, each revealing a different temporal or rhythmic aspect of the corporeal activity within the space. An activity in the space will appear on these life-size installations that act as temporal lenses or temporal mirrors.  As a set, these time lenses explode captured movements into constituent rhythms and display them "contrapuntally" on the image surfaces arrayed in the space.   "Embodied Encounters"  addresses art-making practices in media arts via the new language of creative cognition. The exhibition demonstrates the philosophical and conceptual ways artists respond to a world made increasingly complex by technology, as well as the evolution of action in artistic creation, and the synergy between materiality and bodily awareness. Through these encounters, we see the divisions between mind and body,self and world dissolve. This phenomenon is highly relevant to contemporary artistic practice as artists become increasingly aware of embodied interaction between intuition, logic, and reason to produce their work.  How does the artist’s consciousness engage in a world comprised of analog, digital, and virtual stimuli? The Beall Center addresses this question through an ambitious, provoking voyage through cognition and intelligence – human and artificial alike.  The exhibition runs from October 1, 2016 through January 21, 2017.

assi/terre @ Sporobole (Sherbrooke, QC)


  INSTALLATION :  Provided Max/MSP programming and spatialization for Chantale Laplante's project, assi/terre.    L’oeuvre assi/terre [titre de travail] est tissée de deux langues : l’innu et le français. L’innu, langue sur la frontière du disparaître/apparaître, et le français langue de traduction. C’est un va-et-vient entre le chant et le sens qui traverse la trame sonore. À travers les liaisons de vocables et de bruissements, et au détour d’une promenade, l’auditeur peut alors faire l’expérience d’une double traversée celle de l’espace de l’oeuvre et de l’espace citoyen.  assi/terre [titre de travail] met à profit le dispositif de diffusion éminemment déambulatoire du centre d’artistes Sporobole en multipliant les traversées et en démultipliant, par effet de saisie, notre capacité perceptive du monde.  Lecture innu : Alexsa KcKenzie Programmation Max-MSP : Julian Stein

Turcot : la route devenue architecture @ BIAN 2014 - la SAT (Montréal, QC)

Installation: Provided sound/interaction design for Turcot: la route devenue architecture, an interactive installation work by Berengère L. Marin-Dubuard (beewoo), presented in the Satosphere at the Société des arts technologiques (SAT), as part of BIAN 2014. The installation was presented from May 28 - June 27 2014. 

link: http://bianmontreal.ca/en/calendar/turcot-la-route-devnue-architecture

The interactive and immersive installation Turcot: la route devenue architecture offers a tour of an interchange from the point of view of a pedestrian or cyclist. The Satosphere’s spherical projection sweeps visitors into the heart of this gigantic work by offering a perceptual experience on human scale. Visitors can transform the interchange in real time, changing its structure and the journey, by manipulating a wooden model placed, like a construction game, at the centre of the dome. They create another architecture, one that is dynamic and unstable, altering the idea we have of the structure and its final form.

Montréal Sound Map @ Goethe-Institut (Montréal, QC) - Nuit Blanche 2013


      INSTALLATION:  The Montréal Sound Map is an interactive soundscape project that allows users to upload field recordings to a Google Map of Montréal. Since 2008, almost 300 sound recordings from all over the island have been collected and archived.   In this installation, the Montréal Sound Map is projected on a window of the Goethe-Institut. The map runs on autoplay with field recordings selected at random one after another, and the map pans to new locations following each newly selected sound. The audio will be heard both outside and inside, providing viewers with two very different listening environments: one static and one dynamic.  link:  www.montrealsoundmap.com
