M.A.R.I.N.´
cartographies of everyday at sea – art residency

The huge amount of spiders around the art colony inspired me to work on this three spiderweb structures. Because the spiders immediately populate the artificial web, the structure of the network changes continuosly and introduces a different point of view to those omnipresent creatures and engages a coexistence between insects and art.

cartographies of everyday at sea – art residency

During the 1 month residency I took around 400 different photos. Out of this pool emerges an hand drawn emotional and subjective map of the three different locations in Norway, Sweden and Lithuania.

Here we were encouraged to show our works in progress during the open studio event on the 27.8.2011 and the cartography of everyday at sea, as it´s a very long drawing was used as a link between the main community space in the ground floor and the more private first floor area where M.A.R.I.N. residents presented the artpieces.

ATMERS (a work in progress)

cartographies of everyday at sea – art residency

Atmers are kinetic inflatable objects which try to reflect on the surrounding environment and its health state through repetitive movements which resemble breathing.

developed at Stavanger/Flörli, Norway
realized at
kultivator, art and agriculture, Öland, Sweden

As we were at a farm, the first step was to create a working space. What would be a better place for some artistic-scientific research than a kitchen ? Fortunately Kultivator has a so called Outdoor-Kitchen, which was not in permanent use, so this approved to be the perfect place to feel the environment and to create art. When the weather was bad, or it was to cold, we changed to a not yet finished residency space, where a bed had to take the function of a table.

 

In a future version of the project, the health state of the inflatable objects will be triggered by sensoric input. In this case I used myself as a sensor, trying to feel the environement and transfer this emotions in the breathing algorithms.

Here we were encouraged to show our works in progress during the open studio event on the 27.8.2011  as this was generally an indoor event I placed the Atmers next to one of our sleeping rooms which we converted into studiospaces.

 

 

 

the marin trackrider experience

cartographies of everyday at sea – art residency

Flørli, Lysefjord, Norway

the marin trackrider experience:
together with Tapio Mäkelä

Already before we arrived to Flörli, there where rumors about the so called “Stairway to heaven”, 4444 wooden stairs, which belong to the old Powerplant.

We had the idea to create some device, which has a camera mounted on it to ride those tracks, next to the wooden stairs, down.

 

When we climbed those stairs up, which took about two to three hours we were far to exhausted to modify the not really working first prototype, so we came back without success. But after some days the motivation came back and just before we left the beautiful Lysefjord Tapio and I created a second version which actually was kind of successful. Absollutly fun included.
