DUST by Herman Kolgen
Inspired by 1920 Marcel Duchamp and Man Ray's photograph Élevage de poussière, DUST explores changes in the state of matter. At the edge of the imperceptible, pigments are suspended around a magnetic field. Random fibrous networks take shape and then form composite objects, hypnotic in their complexity. Sound particles paired with luminous aggregates exist on a scale that cancels out all points of reference. Thus, at the turning point between the invisible and the visible, dust becomes intoxicating and the video surface a veritable accumulation of x-rays.
At transmediale.11 this performance will be shown for the first time in Germany.
