ABOUT THE WORK
The three-day program called Image / movement / sound through the format of exhibition, audio-visual performances and workshops examine relations between image, movement and sound in new media art. In her work Vana Gaćina starts the research from traditional forms of art, particularly in the work exhibited on this occasion – Točka (Point), from large dimension collages, which is then layered with new media expressions through which the author of the work also includes the observer. Work Točka (Point) becomes the image that the action of the observer turns to the audio video installation. Activating mapped video and manipulating the speed and the intensity of colour, the observer interacts with the image, making it audio-visual work.
The second day of the program will be marked by an audio-visual performance by Tanja Minarik and Tin Dožića. Compound sound manipulation of Tin Dožića with projections of Tanja Minarik brings a nice and clear poetical live play that indicates experience of the performing team. For the interested public, led by Tanja Minarik and Tin Dožić there will be workshops of audio-visual performance. At the workshop participants will have the opportunity to give the image and sound to the objects found in the street. New images of found items will be formed through microscopes, projectors, overhead projectors etc., which completes the story open with exhibition of Vana Gaćina that indicates the complexity of new media performance.
