Erik Friis Reitan - Teleportation (2023) Erik Friis Reitan
Teleportation is an artistc research Ph.d project at The Art Academy at The Art Academy - Institute for Contemporary Art at the Faculty for Art, Music and Design, University of Bergen, Norway. The project is focused on photography and installation and has spanned over four iterations: three exhibitions, and a final presentation. Through field trips and exhibitions, Erik Friis Reitan has explored how photography relates to absence and presence, and how such an exploration can be used to make immersive installations. As the project has developed, the installations themselves and in particular their evasiveness as absent or past events, has become a topic for Friis Reitan´s artistic research. Teleportation er et doktorgradsprosjekt innen kunstnerisk utviklingsarbeid ved Kunstakademiet - Institutt for Samtidskunst ved Fakultet for Kunst, Musikk og Design, Universitetet i Bergen. Prosjektet fokuserer på fotografi og installasjon, og har vært publisert gjennom fire ulike presentasjoner: tre utstillinger og en avsluttende presentasjon. Gjennom feltarbeid og utstillinger har Erik Friis Reitan utforsket hvordan fotografi forholder seg til fravær og tilstedeværelse, og hvordan en slik utforskning kan danne grunnlag for immersive installasjoner. Ettersom prosjektet har utviklet seg har installasjonene selv, og spesielt deres forgjengelighet som fortidige hendelser, blitt et tema for Friis Reitans prosjekt.

Ko. Fluid Practices. (2023) Sergio Patricio
Ko = water in Mapundungun (Mapuche language). The reflection revolves around how we divide the waters in time-based media practices in the current context of environmental emergency + war. The analysis begins inspired by the Mapuche people about interconnectedness with rivers and lakes, raising a question about art practices today. Ko's idea is based on how water flows from the sides (positions, political strategies, visions) and divides territories. How to make performance art sustainable? To answer this question, a capsule is presented around the ecology of time-based media as a fluid art practice. To understand in three steps this observation selected exponents from around the world and Austria helps to make a final selection of three performance artists living and working in Vienna, observed as different currents of one sea with leitmotiv and policy paths. The aim is to use this classification to speculate on how they could improve sustainability in the next decade. Ko speculates on how practices use these territories divided as a sea with currents. Where bodies could achieve the awareness needed especially in terms of water crisis scarcity and safe access. The final thought claims attention to fluid thinking to find solutions and build a sustainable community.

The weft. Time-based media arts and cross-art practices. (2023) Sergio Patricio
The weft is an article that requests to hold time and attention about time-based art practices, especially the ones that rely on time as a medium with the usage of technology and multimedia formats to be presented live in the case of performance art, for example. The article is more than a dialogue of a theory, it is a speculation about the future of these practices in terms of cultural impact and sustainability. The questions and speculations posed a question about the status of these practices within the facilitation in educators and practitioners related to Time.
