A-Field

Market Estate

6 March at 8.00 pm

Ideas behind the Project:

A-Field is an invisible network, live, breathing, constantly shifting shape. Its beauty is unconcieved still omnipresent, imperceptible still manifesting, impersonal still transcending. Pure potentiality is hidden and can be sourced by activating centers of interconnections.

Tuning in with the space working with its qualities is the practice of activating its structure and transforming it through energy interaction. In the basis of this process is conscious recognition of the presence of layers of information and exploration of their qualities.

Manifestation takes the form of an experience, always unique and always enfolded into the total fabric of perception. Sensory systems can be infinitely expanded through observing the roots of reactions.

Description of the Project:

A-Field’ is an interactive immersive light and sound experience, taking place in the central courtyard of the Market Estate. It will run for about an hour and will incorporate live improvised sound in the setting of laser projection and ambient noise as biofeedback of artistic interaction with the moment.

The artist will control the sounds and light, through the real time activity of her brain and heart activity. She will essentially “conduct” the visual and musical score, through an EEG/ECG devices. It will provide a counterpoint to the sounds produced on site live by the musicians.

About Analema Group:

Analema Group is an art group of artists, researches, programmers, sound engineers.  It acts as a single artist, on the principle of synergy, aiming to produce a site-specific phenomenal sonic and visual spatial experience.

For this project Analema Group: Eugenia Emets, Ryan Jordan, Tony Steffert, Gadi Sprukt, Carl Smith, collaborates with LCI and a number of musicians (Ampersand, Ramon Trecu) to carry out a immersive live experience.

Who is behind Analema Group

Eugenia Emets

Artist, founder of Analema Group

The artist’s current practice is concerned with possibilities of visualization of abstract geometric creation through form, color, sound, both in their static and dynamic expression. Working with such media as photography, video, laser, holographic and sound projection, she creates conditions for the participants to experience the manifestation of structural and energy qualities of the space.

Having particular interest in such quality of space/artwork as interactivity, she has recently worked on the projects allowing to research and reveal this quality though engagement with new technologies to create immersive experiences. ‘Okean X Forms’ (2007), a laser projection with live sound, ‘Elements of Light’ (2008), video, sound and photography installation and ‘Manta Ray” (2009), a holographic video projection with sound, mark the transition in artistic practice towards use of abstract geometric language and further experimentation in immersive spatial installation, aimed at questioning the boundaries of human perception.

Ryan Jordan

Ryan Jordan is a UK based artist working with DIY punk electronics, physical performance, Pure Data, and noise. He makes live electronic music/noise performances which incorporate human physical movements and strobe lighting as their essential foundation. Ryan also curates several noise, experimental and computer arts events and concerts in the UK, such as hac… and noise=noise.

He is an active member of London based open source collective, OpenLab; and has released music on underground labels Bad Sekta, Anithematica/CovenH, AntiGen, and NoizMutations.

Carl Smith

Carl is a developer and researcher working for the Learning Technology ResearchInstitute (LTRI) based in Shoreditch. He uses visualisation to explode the ability to absorb, transform and reuse information. His recent work has concentrated on exploiting the various ways that computer based modeling can be used in the design, generation and distribution of radical pedagogy (microlearning). His primary research involves the investigation of these micro forms of learning from the point of view of their units of construction – to see across the whole range of constituent parts, schemas and key narratives involved in their successful development and application. Other research interests include spatial literacy, pattern recognition, and augmented / mixed reality. His previous projects include the Cistercians in Yorkshire

Project, Palace of Darius, and Theatre of Memory. He has previously worked for the Humanities Computing departments at Glasgow and Sheffield University.
