Sunday 16 October
Conflux (2010, extended version)
Klangraum Krems Minoritenkirche
19:30 – 20:30
Conflux tackles the phenomenon of perception and is based on concepts that Makino developed from his research on dynamic systems, phenomenology and experimental psychology. Conflux was inspired by James J. Gibson’s theory of ecological perception, which focuses on the perceiver’s interaction with particular properties of their environment. Makino creates a visually and acoustically artificial environment, which makes for a unique experience in which shifting modes of perception are made tangible – from the perception of the surroundings to the proprioception of the perceivers themselves. The perceivers are active parts of the performative installation.
Yutaka Makino’s (JP, 1976) works deal with multimodalities of human perception through the construction of dynamic systems as empirical environments. With a background in art and science, his research involves sound/ form synthesis, spatial perception, complex dynamical systems, and new materialities.
