Silence surrounds us, silence around us – On creativity in communication (2021) Erika Matsunami
Silence surrounds us, silence around us – On creativity in communication is pre-artistic research for Green x (2022 –). Is language the tool? If it is yes, what kind of tool is the language? Through the language, what can we produce and provide? Thereby, I address the topic of creativity in communication in reading silently, speech, and listening. On creativity in communication is a play to draw models. Thereby the leitmotif is "reading". Critical seeing in a model on reading subjectivity and objectivity at the online artistic representational level, Question for on creativity The research objective(s) is a future idea for physical space and its mobility within virtual space (potentiality) for a new type of idea for notation between tradition and modernity. In this aspect, towards international communication gaps between tradition and modernity, DADA solved the issue of communication and explored a new way of communication, that was not a philosophical metaphor, but rather that consisted of semiotics and semantics in the context of design, was creative. – New visual and auditory codes. Thereby I deal with “Tractatus” - logico of philosophicus, that is a logic of nonsense by Wittgenstein in the theme of space, body and time. "Silence surrounds us, silence around us" is an artistic research series, after "N.N-Zwischenliegend", I have been started to explore in 2020, after the corona-pandemic.

The PentaPuzzle (2021) Kristoffer Borgen
The PentaPuzzle has the user placing objects of different shapes into openings in a pentagon shaped puzzlebox. The different objects only fit into certain spots on the box. If all the objects are fitted into the correct place, the light inside will turn on and shine through the top of the stylized box, casting a pattern of shadows onto the surrounding environment. This gives the user the satisfaction on making objects fit through openings, while also giving a sense of accomplishment and a visual reward for completing the puzzle. The primary qualities of the puzzlebox is it’s pentagonical shape, it's many slots to put objects into and how it lights up when all it's conditions are fullfilled. Throughout the user's experience, it will take advantage of the user’s sense of feeling and sight. To improve the product in the future, i would use a better light-source in order to make the light more apparent. I would also use magnets in order to give the shapes a better tactile feeling as the user inserts them into the box.
