2014

Location: Stichting Mediamatic 

The event included the installation jumping power plant  by dutch a project rtist Gabey Tjon a Tham.
In her work she transforms spaces into a sensory environment by using kinetic machines, light and sound wherein choreographies with both a mechanical and natural character arise.

 

For the jumping power plant project she researches the artistic possibilities of generating light with alternative sources of energy. How can these principles be applied to art installations in the public space and how do they interact with the audience? She is curious what complexity physical movement can evoke to generate groups of light instead of being controlled by the computer. Furthermore she experiments with different surfaces and materials that can serve as generators for electricity.

Together with the scientists and artists from the Jumping power plant team she is developing a prototype that can be realised on a large scale in 2017. In this collaboration she is excited what she can learn from the expertise of scientists and vice versa, considering the material and techniques she’s using as well in her works. On the other hand she hopes to discover potentiality in the unintentional purposes of these new technologies.
