Opening Thursday April 14 at 7 p.m.
Dmitry Morozov aka VTOL’s installation at Babel is a slight reminder of the questions one might ask too late when thinking of exploration of another world. What should one prepare for? What will you meet? What will you need, and what should you bring? Will it work? And even if these questions have been widely thought through, you will not get a final answer until you go out and experience the outcome.
VTOL usually combines sound and robotic/kinetic ideas with social/psychological (perception) and aesthetic experiments through DIY technologies and materials. Most of his work are 100 % made by himself using very simple and common parts by hacking them or finding ways to use readymade objects and technologies. VTOL makes use of open source software like Pure Data for his programming.
VTOL will be a resident artist at the production facilities Lademoen Kunstnerverksteder (LKV) in Trondheim during Meta.Morf, arriving with the plans and equipment to build a commissioned work of an orbiting sonic installation exploring the technical and perceptual limitations of moving sound. An artist resident will be faced with the same issues as above, just left with familiar tools in a new enviroment, culture, artspace and a plan.
