FORMING MOTION presented by Kim Collmer

part of Directors Lounge at the Filmmuseum Duesseldorf, April 20th, 8:30pm

Kim Collmer delivers some of her absolute favorites for a special edition of animations and videos from her Directors Lounge screenings.
How to describe the work? It’s a real mix! Humorous yet uncomfortable, light but heavy, slick though messy. The main overriding theme – genuine artistic expression.
Some of the artists showing include: Tobias Anderson, Buckius & Manos, John N. Cambell, Jennifer Hope Davy, Janet Galore, Cecilia Lundquist, Johannes Nyholm, Ho Yoel Ryu, Meredith Root and more!

A live luminoacoustic performance as part of Directors Lounge at the Filmmuseum Duesseldorf, April 20th, 9:30pm

LIGHTUNE.G (light+melody+tone G/50Hz) is the name of the collaborative duo consisting of Bojan Gagic and Miodrag Gladovic, which they are using to put on their first collaborative project, Lighterature Reading. The project is based on the conversion of light from luminous objects into tone images via the photovoltaic effect generated through solar panels (under the influence of light, solar panels – silicon cells – produce electricity the strength of which depends upon the intensity of the light). Hence the name that defines the performance and the composition technique – luminoacoustics. Different sources of light (neon, halogen, LED, cigarette lighters, video projectors, etc.) generate different sound frequencies which, through further processing, can be transformed into a modular musical sketch. The base frequency is 50Hz (the tone G) and is a product of theatre lighting conversion.

Bojan Gagic and Miodrag Gladovic started working on the project a year ago in collaboration with Ivan Bauk, defining a technical solution for the conversion of the photovoltaic effect and the possibilities for its use in music research.

Lighterature Reading will be shown in cooperation with Kroatien Kreativ 2013 Curator: Ingeborg Fuelepp

location: Black Box, Filmmuseum Duesseldorf, Schulstraße 4, 40213 Duesseldorf
