Touch Me Festival: It's about time!
Science and art in temporal equilibrium
Zagreb, 10.11. – 07.12.2014.
Last week of Touch Me Festival presents performance of nanobots Echo 10-9
After warming the atmosphere with performance 10 000 peacock feathers in foaming acid which left the visitors breathless at the opening ceremony of Touch Me Festival, intriguing and fun forensic workshops for young and adults and a series of lectures by artists and curators a three week journey through vertiginous time dimensions is getting closer to its final stop.
On Saturday, December 6th, 12 pm at Klovićevi dvori Gallery there is expecting you Echo 10-9 an audio-visual performance with nanobots, micro and macrofluids by Robertina Šebjanič (SI) and Aleš Hieng (SI).
Echo 10-9 impresses with its unique analogue esthetics of ambiental audio-visual landscapes created by the transformation of formal characteristics of materials right on the spot. In relation to micro and macrofluids, nanomaterials and fields of magnetic reaction, nanobots create their own choreography as a result of stimulated autopoetic chemical reactions which influence the sonic composition. Immersion of physics, chemistry and computer reveals invisible fields and expands sensory experience which questions perception itself and discovers small-sized worlds with different laws which co-exsists in many levels – like an insight into a new dimension which provides the ability to think of the world differently.
Afterward the performance relax with Solfeggio for color harmonies by Davor Sanvincenti, try out Time of breathing by Vitar Drinković, watch the experimental movies of Ivan Ladislav Galeta and release the fear of death in interactive installation Time of Death by Gjino Šutić.
Touch Me exhibition which presents many art works and science experiments is open until December 7th. Don't be late on Time!
*Entrance for the performans is free.
