Hilde Hauan Johnsen & Maia Urstad: HORIZON – exhibition and seminar
Hilde Hauan Johnsen, Professor at the Department of Fine Art, and Maia Urstad, sound artist, organises an exhibition and a seminar in Rom8 on 7 February 2013 5pm.
Horizon appears like a silver-lined horizon with waves of pulsating light. Unlike earlier works where threads are loosely bundled, this work illustrates a tightly woven technique thus referencing and age-old tradition. Fiber optic cables are used in telecommunication, applied science and engineering. In the series "01001" Hilde Hauan Johnsen and Maia Urstad uncover the hidden world of telecommunications. Sound compositions are an integral part of the work and add a theatrical dimension. The fiber and sound interact as the light is activated through the sound frequencies.
Wednesday 6 February: Working with sound from 6 to 8pm.
Thursday 7 February: Exhibition Opening at 5pm. Seminar at 6pm (program below).
