Command Z: Artists working with Phenomena & Technology
Library Shelf Location 17.COMM
Publication Date 2012
Description Command Z Artists Working with Phenomena & Technology features installations by 3 artists and 1 artist team: INGRID BACHMANN (Montreal), PAUL DEMARINIS (San Francisco), NINA KATCHADOURIAN (New York), and the artist team of EMILE MORIN and JOCELYN ROBERT (Quebec City). A digital/acoustic grand piano (Yamaha Disklavier), a Bunsen burner, bronzed popcorn, a birdcage, 54 leather shoes, 8 worn suitcases, and a traditional theater-style popcorn maker are all informed by a technological code or phenomena. These artists explore the long trajectory of communication technologies, how they are framed within a material form, and how social practices are framed around them. By building unique digital and physical behaviors, without the use of screens, the works on display bring the virtual and material realms into one gesture. Watch letters fall like rain playing a piano, hear what popcorn is saying, find shoes automatically tapping or stomping, peek inside suitcases, and listen to sounds from the moon in pitch-blackness.
