S&I Media 2018 Exhibition
Curators: Victor dos Reis and Rogério Taveira
Venue: Fine Arts Society, Lisbon
Dates: 29 June 29 to 21 July
We are glad to announce the six projects selected for our very first exhibition Imersivo | Immersive:
Daydream Nation, Sandra Zuzarte Ferreira
This multimedia installation, created after Gerhard Richter’s work, suggests the deconstruction of a stereoscopic visualization process and a reflection on the act of seeing itself, while evoking the Schrödinger’s paradox to illustrate the creation of ghosts and simulacra.
Wandering Gaze, Ana Teresa Vicente
This project explores the relation established between the observer’s gaze and a certain image. Through the use of eye-tracking technology, this interactive installation suggests the suspension of gravity by a hidden force through the experience of a prosthetic gaze that pierces the observed object.
Passagem, Ana Catarina Teixeira
With this work, the artist seeks an approach to sleep, creating interactions between the concepts of vulnerability and human existence. This sound installation reflects on sleep as a verge state between two worlds and falling asleep as the moment of exterior absence, evoking the threshold between life and death.
Eccentric Spaces, Águeda Simó
This video installation explores the plasticity of stereo depth and its immersive qualities. Stereo depth can be manipulated to create eccentric dimensions and reveal hidden worlds that only exist inside the stereoscopic projections.
Atmosmancy, Ivo Louro
Atmosmancy is an immersive sound installation that explores the sonification of environmental data on climate changes and atmosphere pollution in Portugal. Atmosmancy transforms this monitored and projected data into corresponding sound streams, spatializing them via 10 audio speakers.
Her Fears / Her Dreams, Jennifer Crane
Series of stereoscopic photographs (7”x 3” archival pigment prints) based on historical views of western Canada and on the photographic archives of William Notman, who owned and operated one of the largest photographic studios in Canada during the nineteenth century.
