An experiment in elasticity

The ongoing discourse on science, art and the role of the experiment prove my hypothesis that we are experiencing a diffusion of perceived orders and structures. Boundaries of meanings and definitions are blurred, elastic interpretations can be found. An agreed understanding can be observed in the acceptance of error and failure in an experiment. Errors are valued and contribute to knowledge production. However, it is a crucial question who is analysing the outcome of an experiment and who evaluates its meaning. If at all…
Latours quote points to the sociological aspects of experimentation. It is not about a possible setup, it is about the setup (the current situation) per se and about a collective construction of reality with no big plan or goal. Therefore the outcome of our experimental actions is not relevant, it is about the practical process itself. Latours investigation and description of knowledge production shows, that the system of practices crosses fields and diciplines. No longer we think of »subject« versus »object« or »social« versus »natural«. Through this openness new insights and structures become possible, new demarcations. I can find a relation between Latours concept and ‚mode 2’. An idea of knowledge production from Michael Gibbons et al. identifying an increasing interest in the application, socialisation and transdisciplinarity of knowledge. However, I just got this quote on facebook from an artist friend in NYC, he used to be an artist programmer and seems not to be an active artist anymore: „stopped for 8 years… digital interactive things become easy and not experimental anymore. People seem doing the same effects again and again. The new experimental stuff are this social network things…“ This quote supports the tendency of an increasing socialisation of the experimental, but it raises the question of what are nowadays experiments. In relation to my PhD-project on elasticity in communication I wonder how to set up an experiment which looks into current sociological areas of instability and flux and take into account that we are part of changing, flexible networks with an increasing dissolution of structures, meanings and definitions.

Ferret Out Loopholes at Articulate in Sydney

 

Happy to exhibit my work at Articulate’s progressive Ferret show (13.02.-26.02.2018) in Sydney: Ferret Out Loopholes – stay offline for the day without TV, email or social media. Unfollow and unfriend. Declutter dependencies. Shift priorities. Downsize consumption. Reconsider commitments. Learn new skills. Stop buying. Turn off all notifications. Focus on real life by keeping whole days unplanned.

Project examples:

Cups for Alice

Standard drinking cups made of polystyrene imprinted with a measurement scale were aboard of an oceanographic research vessel of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration of the US (NOAA) during an expedition in the Gulf of Mexico in a remotely operated underwater vehicle (ROV). Due to the increased air pressure, the cups shrank with every meter of descent resulting in tiny smurfed measuring cups.

Elastic Metric System

To facilitate the sociocultural transformation towards a culture with an enhanced sensorium, I implemented the New Elastic Metric System on an arbitrary basis as an intervention in public spaces such as cultural institutions and border areas.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Elastic Standard Metre

Unmeasuring the original metric system from 1795 located in Paris with the Elastic Standard Metre on a daily basis for one month. The measuring results varied each day. Video documentation, 2.30 min on Vimeo: Elastic Standard Metre

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Organic Equilibrium

Transformed spirit levels with the vial embedded in organic materials to determine potential solutions outside of the binary paradigm (even / uneven) of conventional scientific rationality.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Disordered Zero Point of Clandulla State Forest

In a geometrical approximation the geographical zero point of Clandulla State Forest Gallery, NSW, Australia was determined at -32°53’37.6”, 149°56’6”. This mark was shifted to the main area of the open air exhibition (The Survey Show). Such flexibility of the zero point was represented by a mobile rotating device keeping the zero point in constant motion explicating the discrepancy between human made constructions and reality.

Viscous Timespacematter

Bergson’s concept of duration as an immeasurable flow and intuitive sense of time in contrast to mechanized clock-time was the basis of several experiments about time. Revamped time keepers literally softened the rigidity of ordered time. Video documentation, 2.40 min on Vimeo: Viscous Timers
