Artist in residence at IK Stichting
Dear art lovers
I’ve just started an artist-in-residence period at the IK Stichting in Holland as a part of the Exhibition Energie-Wechsel curated by Dr. Uwe Rueth.
The Stichting IK is located in a former water tower in Vlissingen (a wonderful and inspirational place! ) whose initiator and founder is the dutch artist Jan Van Munster.
For this residency and pursuing my research on bio-data used in interactive multimedia art, I proposed a new project which combines brain waves (via EEG), sound and light. I will create an immersive environment composed by light and surround sound that will be shaped by both the performer’s (in this case, me) and visitors’ brain waves.
The installation will take place at the K pavilion next April. If you look at the satellite image below, you can see on the top the IK word based on Jan Van Munster’s work. The ‘I’ and the ‘K’ pavilions are designed as exhibition spaces and the ‘I’ pavilion serves also as a guest studio for the artist-in-residence. Right now, I’m writing this blog from the ‘I’ pavilion. You can also see the whole fantastic area and on the left bottom, the water tower.
I will try to keep you updated about the evolution of my work. Currently, I’m studying and contemplating the space and making some measurements, in order to finally buy the material for the light installation while at the same time, I am experimenting the new EEG interface I will use this time (emotiv insight)
If you do not hear from me for a while, do not worry, I am working……………
