Artistic research: spatial installation “Les coloris” for the sound (random) composition and its performance (2012–2014)
- An interactive spatial installation with the three–four distance measuring sensors (Measuring distance: 100 to 550 cm) and feedback (a microphone was installed outside the room or in the room) for 5 ch discrete sound.
Dimension of space: h. 3.8 m x w. 5 m x d. 7 m
This installation was built with the great help of a colleague.
This idea was the “multimodality” of different elements as a happenstance performance, such as elements of noise, language, movement and sound, which was generated by the computer or through the movement the computer generated through those elements. – an idea for Assemblage.
The size of this corner room was 84 m2 and there were two doors (two entrances). The audience could move freely. Therefore the audience could stay and listen without seeing what was happening on the floor or the audience could move into the room (space) to see or join in with the happening. Another idea was a performance in the corridor, between sound composition and/or performance and/or action.
I'd like to create a space, but I don't want to make a machine, it's not my artistic area (Artist means today, it's possible to work for and in different areas. The research fields of art overlap many and varied. Art and Technology, if artist has no enough scientific knowledge, its art work would be a goods. Such as Artist Duchamp, he had dealt with his artistic goods in his idea of performativity. In particular, in the research of art and technology today, artist and philosopher as well aesthetician are required to comprehend the neuroscience on the level of the medicine. As hobby, everyone can do it, but as research on the professional level, it is in a research area of art for a collective research.). At the same time, the stage at the theatre or the concert hall is spectacular, but it doesn't make sense for the creation of something to me. I need the condition of the nature. I first performed on the stage when I was four years old, so I know what the theatre space is. My artistic research area and its approach are continually in terms of philosophy of perception and neuroaesthetics in art and aesthetics.
I had a problem in this art research; the installation with sensors worked perfectly, but I still had to resolve the system if I had to present phenomenologically ... This means that the developing of a device is required from me.
In art, if an installation works perfectly, then the installation is not an artwork, it's a machine or a device. Therefore in the arts, the device should represent the artistic or philosophical concept. My idea for artistic research is for musical and visual performativity in one certain condition and in the subject of “multimodality” – on human life and its nature.
Finally, I came back to the artistic research. I appreciate op. 13 Friede auf Erden für gemischten Chor a cappella (1907) by Arnold Schönberg more than a created machine, even it is sophisticated. His twelve-tone technique was a really great idea, especially for a choir (on Language: Its Character and Atonality, in my artistic research, this subject is in terms of the project e.g. Transformation #02, Les coloris.). If I honestly, I can say that NI is more interesting than AI, it's life. But if I could discover something in a situation by AI (as experience), then AI would give me new or profound thoughts. With this installation, I dealt with the topic of random, chance (Zufall), etc. I tried many variants, of course I thought about the philosophical and mathematical level of random and also random in a performance by AI (Interaction). In the result of this artistic research, I have understood at least what algorithm is and could be. Therefore I continue to explore in the context of PhD artistic research. On serialism and minimalism, I comprise in „in the procedure of artistic research".
On multimodality in Music, I have interest in researching on some of singer-songwritings by the Beatles in regards with the aesthetics of everyday life in the Anglo-american philosophy, where the aesthetics is mainly in the twentieth century, although Beckett's is rather on human nature and its law.
