Encounters need space and time, opportunity and respect, interest and communication. Encounter is fundamental for human existence and its development or joint management of crises. In times of limited opportunities for encounters, which are more or less well converted into a different form of meeting through digital interfaces, the hunger for real shared experience increases steadily. The Swiss collective artificialOwl edited structures and moments of human encounters and communication in their installations. Her new work “Sinus 1.0 Classsic Edition” was created in 2021 especially for the Feldkircher Churer Tor in collaboration with the internationally renowned Vorarlberg composer Herbert Willi.
“Composition has to do with trust. In the silence and lack of intention to allow the sounds belongs to the most beautiful thing I can imagine.”
– Herbert Willi
The projection of a sine wave is caught by artificial fog and appears to acquire a momentary physical presence. What is created is a space of dialogue, filled with fantastic, ephemeral structures, created through a poetic synthesis of projection, timeless music and our communal experience. The holistic immersion in this strange world enables a temporary release from one’s own present.
